Dear Friends...
*
we need a deep pause to feel our heartbreak as violence against black people continues daily in the United States.
*
My prayer is that the horror of George Floyd’s murder will crack us open so powerfully that we collectively respond against the racism in and around us.
*
With love and great sorrow,

Tara 🙏🏽💕

It was wonderful to be with all who attended our very first Virtual Satsang - a time of exploring and realizing truth in the gathering of spiritual friends.

In this short practice we connect with our aspiration to live from love, and then bring a caring presence to our own vulnerability, to a dear one, and to all beings everywhere.

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

Fear blocks compassion by causing us to disconnect from the suffering of others. In this 3-part series, Tara shares strategies that help us awaken from the trance of “the unreal other” and recognize our intrinsic belonging with all of life.

Dear ones... When widespread difficulties arise, it becomes important to draw on our inner strength. It is the time to pause, reflect and bring wisdom, courage and care to ourselves and those around us.

With the spreading coronavirus, there is the need for many to stay at home. This is the perfect time to create a home retreat for yourself. My dear friend @jack_kornfield and I recently put together some instructions and resources to help you, including a video guided half day retreat. Here’s where you can find it:

For nothing is fixed,
forever, forever, forever,
it is not fixed;
the earth is always shifting,
the light is always changing,
the sea does not cease to grind down rock.
Generations do not cease to be born,
and we are responsible to them
because we are the only witnesses they have.
The sea rises, the light fails,
lovers cling to each other,
and children cling to us.
The moment we cease to hold each other,
the moment we break faith with one another,
the sea engulfs us and the light goes out. ~ James Baldwin
