2019-01-10 Integrating the Dhamma: A Monthlong Retreat in Your Daily Life 1:26:23
  Kim Allen
The Dhamma is meant to be embodied, both on the cushion and in our daily lives - this makes it "onward-leading." This monthlong program will enliven our practice for the new year. The Five Spiritual Faculties serve as tools to develop our Dhamma skills, and also to evaluate and balance our practice. We will explore the Faculties through weekly meetings consisting of group practice discussion, teachings, and sutta readings. There will also be reflections to deepen and integrate our Dhamma understanding, and the support of spiritual friendship.

2018-12-01 Pilgrimage: Inner Journeys In Outer Spaces 1:58:21
  Shantum Seth
"There are four places, the sight of which will arouse strong emotions in those with faith. Here the Tathagata was born… Here the Tathagata attained enlightenment… Here the Tathagata set in motion the Wheel of the Dharma... Here the Tathagata attained final Nirvana… And, the monk, the nun, the layman or laywoman who has faith should visit these places.” - The Buddha Before he died, the Buddha suggested that it would be of great benefit to those who are interested in his teachings to make a pilgrimage to the places associated with his life. While visiting the outer spaces associated with the historical Buddha, a pilgrimage allows us to make an inner journey enveloped by the profound Dhamma offered by the Buddha. As a pilgrimage leader and longtime teacher in the community of Thích Nhat Hanh, Shantum Seth will be sharing some of the teachings of the Buddha within the context of his Indian homeland.
