By remembering that it’s not personal, not perfect, and not permanent, I’ve been able to hold a lot of spaciousness in my life. Through these dark COVID days, the Dharma has made daily living….well, liveable. For that I am immensely grateful.

The Dharma has let me explore my mind and find a deeper sense of ease and peace.

The dharma has been a central influence in my life since I started practicing more than a decade ago. It provides a pragmatic and spiritual understanding of the world and how to move towards being a more considerate and authentic person. The fruits of practice are present in myriad ways and slowly but surely are leading to less suffering and more joy.

Listen to Sooz’s story about a delightful experience on a recent retreat and the power of sangha.

The second jewel of the Dharma: the sangha. It’s been a place to practice the teachings, which has allowed them to develop more fully with family, friends, and my wider community.
