James Baraz: Dharma Talk

Dear Friends,

I look forward to being with you at the Monastery this week. I plan to give a talk entitled “Remembering What We Know”. 
Often our meditation practice helps us understand or see for the first time something that’s never been clear before. That experience of insight where exclaim to ourselves “Aha!” It can have a profound impact that genuinely shifts our perspective. However, even after this powerful glimpse of seeing with new eyes, the old habits and thought patterns still have their influence and we can forget what we know to be true. This is particularly frustrating and can lead to great doubt. How can we both honor our familiar old friend, confusion, and remember to access the wisdom in our new understanding?
I hope you join us in sharing silent meditation and the Dharma talk.
With metta,
