A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly. The open space of compassion allows us to realize that our thoughts a ...
 
The Aloka Vihara sisters are a community of bhikkhunis (fully-ordained nuns) and samaneris (novices) dedicated to practicing the Buddha’s teaching in the style of the Theravada Forest Tradition. Their practice emphasizes simplicity, renunciation, service and an orientation towards learning from the natural world, all held within the context of the Buddha’s teachings. The sisters are committed to embracing and integrating the realities and challenges of contemporary society into their practice.
 
Developing a clear understanding of the teachings and learning to fully inhabit the body have been core parts of my Dhamma practice. These areas, as well a strong emphasis on the heart, inform and shape my teaching. The few years I spent training as an Anagarika in the Thai Forest monasteries broadened my understanding of the Buddha's teachings and instilled a profound respect for the Bhikkhu and Bhikkhuni Sangha. All along the way, I've been particularly interested in how other modalities l ...

I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet. I try to use the formal teachings as a doorway for people to see the truth in themselves. I feel I'm doing my job when people look into themselves to come to their own deep understandings of the truth, ac ...
 
The Insight Meditation Society’s Retreat Center has offered structured meditation courses for new and experienced meditators for over 30 years. Our teachers provide guidance and support in insight and lovingkindness practices drawn from the Buddhist meditative tradition. Please visit dharma.org for more information.
 
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them. Sitting in a field of fifty to eighty people really starts my mind sparking. Since I don't prepare my talks ahead of time, I find myself listening to what I'm saying along with everyone else. This leaves a lot of room for the Dhamma to come up. Just having eighty people listening to m ...

(Meditationszentrum Beatenberg) How can we practise Metta - benevolence - in the midst of our life? Metta can express itself in many ways, as generosity, ethics and kind speech, but also in the way we perceive people, appreciating what is good, and the world, seeing the non-separation and interconnectedness and living from this understanding.…
 
(Gaia House) Awakening the heart from limitation also opens us to a sense of boundlessness. What is it to see the Dharma as an exploration of release through lessening our built up and heavily fabricated experiences? How would it be to see this path as a way to fabricate less and less dukkha–distress and self-centredness, and to liberate all appear…
