Sangha: Exploring our Belonging and Kinship ~ In this talk we explore the “relative” reality of kinship – patterns that harm (blindness, silence, and sameness) and mindful practices that heal and bridge separation. Insight Meditation Community of Washington, February 4, 2015
Softening the Gripped Mind, Insight Meditation Community of Washington, December 2014

Gratitude ~ My heartfelt thanks for sharing your wisdom through your talk, Softening the Gripped Mind. I listened over the past two mornings during my daily sit and took such solace from your words that were both challenging and comforting. My city of Baltimore is so saddened and heartbroken over this last week’s tragic events. Your words were particularly welcome as balm for my troubled soul.
