Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast. Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace. 
 
Over the past week, Deer Park Monastery welcomed lay friends to the Miracle of Mindfulness tour retreat. This year, the title of the retreat was, Breathe, It'll Be Okay. For this week's podcast, we offer the opening chant by the monastic brothers and sisters.  May your heart open as they invoke the name of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisatva of great compassion, 
 

Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share songs of appreciation for our loved ones.  At a recent Day of Mindfulness, Brother Phap Ho shares a song by an late friend of Deer Park Monastery, Dennis Howard, and then, two monastics perform the Vietnamese song written for Thay's poem, A Rose For Your Pocket, a tribute to mothers. May these songs stir gratitude in your heart.  
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

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.
 
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast at dpcast.net and on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. 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.
 
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. We welcome dharma sharings from our worldwide listeners on any of our online homes or by email. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear Friends

As summer begins, we thought we would offer a musical treat from Joe Reilly's new CD--Hello Ocean.  This CD is dedicated to the True Ocean Family who ordained as order of Interbeing Members in September of 2011.  The CD also includes a wonderful song called 'Monkey Mind' that might help you change your relationship with your own monkey mind too.   If you would like more info on how to purchase a copy of the CD, you can email Joe at joereillymusic@gmail.com. 

Smiling to the Sun and the Ocean, within us and outside of us

Wake Up!

Dear Friends,

Last night at the Dharma Nectar Hall of Lower Hamlet in Plum Village, lay and monastic practitioners from around the world gathered to concentrate our energy into a new song which could represent the Wake Up movement. Thanks to the good conditions of a visit from Joe Reilly, Melina Bondy and many talented monks, nuns and lay friends, the fruit of our practice is posted here.

To learn more, or to join the Wake Up movement look no further than the website at http://wkup.org.

A Dharmacast for Kids of all Ages: Songs of Joe Reilly

Dear Friends

In this out-of-the-ordinary edition of the Deer Park dharmacast, we would like to share two songs by singer/songwriter Joe Reilly.  Joe, a practitioner in the Plum village tradition, is a face commonly seen visiting Deer Park when his touring takes him through the region.  But his music can be heard at the monastery much more often, as his light-hearted, meaningful songs have become regular staples at any programs and retreats involving children and families. To learn more about his music please head to www.joereilly.org . The songs shared here are I Love Nature, and Peace Love and Unity, from his cd Children of the Earth.

We present these playful songs to celebrate the family retreat at Deer Park.  Relax, and enjoy.
