Healing Racialized Trauma: A Conversation with Resmaa Menakem and Tara Brach

The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. Resmaa Menakem speaks in a compelling way how this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white body supremacy, and create a truly anti-racist culture. This conversation includes a powerful and provocative guided reflection.

Healing Racialized Trauma: A Conversation with Resmaa Menakem and Tara Brach

Meditation: Letting Life Live Through You

Change, Loss and Timeless Love (Part 1)

Our capacity to live and love fully is entirely intertwined with how we relate to change and loss. These two talks are an invitation to look honestly, and without judgment, at the ways we resist facing our fears and grieving our losses. We then explore how to bring mindfulness and compassion to processing what we’ve resisted, and opening to the timeless love that is our true nature.

Change, Loss and Timeless Love (Part 1)

Meditation: Listening to Our Heart

True listening arouses an open receptive presence that can be truly healing. This meditation awakens a listening presence; first bringing that receptive awareness to sensations and sounds, and then offering that presence to the tenderness and vulnerability of our heart.

Meditation: Uprooting Limiting Beliefs with RAIN

This short reflection guides us in using RAIN (recognize-allow-investigate-nurture) when we discover we are caught in a limiting belief. Who would you be if you didn’t believe there was something wrong with you? (an excerpt from the full talk, Freedom from the Prison of Limiting Beliefs, given on 2020-09-23)

Meditation: Letting Go and Letting Be

Your Future Self: Turning Towards Your Awakened HeartMind

Our lives are shaped by our evolutionary past – the fears and wants that arise from a separate self sense – and the pull of our evolutionary potential – our awakened heart and mind. This talk explores the power of these pulls, and the teachings and reflections that make us most available and responsive to the calling of our future self (enjoy from the archives).

Your Future Self: Turning Towards Your Awakened HeartMind

Equanimity: The Gifts of Non-Reactive Mindful Presence

If we want to bring our intelligence, creativity and love into our relationships and world, we need to be able to access an inner refuge of presence. This talk explores how, when we’re reacting from anger, clinging or fear, to pause, reconnect to the immediate experience of “just this” and remember the love and awareness that has room for the changing waves of life.

Equanimity: The Gifts of Non-Reactive Mindful Presence

Meditation: Pathway to Inner Peace

“Peace is this moment without judgment,” writes poet Dorothy Hunt, “this moment in the heart-space where everything that is, is welcome.” This meditation is a guide to opening to the truth of what’s here, and meeting it with a gentle, allowing presence. As we do, we can touch the inner peace of non-judging awareness, and source our actions in that balance and wisdom.

Meditation: Pathway to Inner Peace

Freedom from the Prison of Limiting Beliefs

(dedicated to Ruth Bader Ginsburg) - We suffer when we are caught in beliefs of our own or other's badness, unworthiness, or lack of value. These beliefs hurt our bodies, lead to violent and/or addictive behaviors, and separate us from our own heart and each other. This talk explores how we can discover who we are beyond these beliefs by recognizing when we are trapped, and learning how to turn to presence and love.
