Dear friends,
 
This week we continue Sister Jina's first talk at Deer Park. She reminds us of the basics of our practice and how we can be present for ourselves and others. At a time when we may be traveling home or hosting friends and family, let us offer them the gift of our presence. May you and your family have a wonderful and nourishing holidays.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
We're happy to introduce a new member of the four-fold sangha at Deer Park Monastery on the podcast this week, Sister Dieu Nghiem, also known as Sister Jina. She gives this talk just before Thanksgiving and leads a guided meditation on awareness and gratefulness of the cells in our body. Joining her in mindfulness, we can remember that one breath is enough to bring us back to our true home.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
By request of a fellow Dharmacast listener, this week, we offer a talk by Venerable Thich Phuoc Tinh given at the beginning of the Winter Retreat. In his signature energetic and fast-paced style, the Venerable reminds us that every moment in meditation is a moment in the presence of Thay and the Buddha. That Buddhism is not a philosophy to be intellectually debated, but rather a very clear and simple practice. 
 
The Dharmacast team loves to hear from our listeners. If you have feedback on past podcasts or requests for upcoming podcasts, let us know by email. But for now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
We hope that your holiday has been restful and nourishing. Have you had a chance to stop and return to your breath? This week we invite you to join Brother Phap Ho in a session of guided sitting and movement meditation. Our brother gently reminds us that every moment is an opportunity to quiet our thinking and experience our breath in the body.
 
With Thay peacefully healing in the hospital, we have the chance to support his continuation through the building of the Deer Park Nunnery. The four-fold sangha continues to raise funds to build environmentally sustainable straw bale housing for the sisters and a hut for Thay. See deerparknunnery.org for updates on the construction and how to donate. Most recent updates on Thay's health can be found at plumvillage.org.

Dear friends,

 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we present insight from our monastic brothers and sisters at Deer Park Monastery on the art of suffering.  During a question and answer session, retreatants ask how to best practice with suffering in our families and at work. When difficulties manifest in the world around us, we can remember to take refuge in the Dharma, the sangha, and the Buddha nature in ourselves and others.
 
With our teacher still recovering in the hospital, we have the opportunity to deeply practice his teachings. The most recent official announcements on Thay's health can be found at plumvillage.org.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Earlier this week, the worldwide sangha was informed that Thay is in the hospital. The monastic community has asked lay friends around the world to practice mindfulness, stability and peace to support our beloved teacher, remembering that we are all cells of the great sangha body that Thay has manifested in his lifetime. More information can be found via official announcements at plumvillage.org.
 
For the podcast today, we bring you a rich sharing from our monastics during a question and answer session at this year's General Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. A retreatant asks how to work with and transform strong sexual cravings. The monastics respond insightfully on how to practice, look deeply, and see clearly into the nature of sexual energy. With mindfulness and equanimity, everything is possible.

Happy Friday to you! Another week for exploring our podcast archives.http://deerpark.libsyn.com/healing-in-our-relationships

We can learn so much from our lay teachers and fellow practitioners. In this Q&A session from a couples retreat last year, three lay teachers help us understand how to heal ourselves and our relationships. 

I've been going through some transitions (moving and new job) but our team will have a new podcast out to you next Friday. Stay tuned!

Dear friends,
 
To continue last week's sharing on Beginning Anew, today we offer a sharing by two lay friends and long-time practitioners.  As life partners, they share their experience with Beginning Anew and demonstrate how they practice it. We hope this wonderful gift from them encourages you to try it with your loved ones, your sangha, and yourself.
