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.

Dear friends,

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today, we offer the second half of Brother Phap Hai's dharma talk from this year's General Retreat.  He shares that despite a recent study showing that most people do not want to sit alone with their thoughts, as practitioners, we sit and look deeply into our thoughts quite frequently. Rather than choosing to react, we can choose this moment to see what this person, or this situation, is teaching us. Rather than trying to transcend, we can choose to accept and transform.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we share the first half of the dharma talk given by Brother Phap Hai at this years General Retreat.  Our brother invites us to return to ourselves to truly experience the Dharma in the present moment. And in light of the recent ice bucket challenge trend, Brother Phap Hai takes it a step further and invites us to ask the hard questions: What is the work that we're here to do? And why aren't we doing it?

Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we continue to share Sister Kinh Nghiem's talk from the recent General Retreat at Deer Park Monastery.  Our sister begins with a favorite song of hers, called Cookie of Childhood.  Then, she shares with us stories from her monastic life that illustrate the joy of letting go, the happiness of living mindfully, and the importance of impermanence.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This past Sunday at Deer Park Monastery, the annual general retreat closed with a lovely talk by Sister Kinh Nghiem.  She shares about the Four Immeasurable Minds, also known as the four elements of true love.  Then, she clearly connects them to the Four Mantras.  May this talk help you practice and cultivate true love in your life.

Dear friends,

 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week we offer you a series of questions asked by lay friends at the recent People of Color Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. Our monastic brothers and sisters give guidance on how we can speak our truths from a place of compassion and authenticity.  And then, our sister shares on how the light of mindfulness can transform violence into a lotus of awakening.

Dear friends,
 
At the end of each retreat, lay friends are given the opportunity to ask questions from their heart to a panel of Deer Park monks and nuns. As the brothers and sisters answer the three questions presented today, we can learn from their way of living. From suffering to mindful consumption to even bacon cravings, we find that the monastics are more like us lay practitioners than we may have thought.

Dear friends,

Today, we share a talk given by Brother Phap Tuyen and lovingly translated by Sister Tinh Nguyen. Our brother shares on the changing nature of our relationships with our fathers, from birth to adulthood. Whether our fathers are still with us or have passed on, let us reflect on what they have given us and what we, in turn, can continue to give to them.
