Healing into Love

Jack offers a reflection from the late Stephen Levine around the possibility of healing through the practices of the heart.

“Yes, we are practicing meditation to reduce stress and become calm and focused. More than that though, we are going to be confronted in our lives with unexpected changes and with difficulty. As the Buddha said, there is suffering in the human incarnation.” – Jack Kornfield  

Love & Impermanence (15:45)

How do you respond to change in your life? Jack shares wisdom from the Buddhist tradition around meeting impermanence with an open heart.

“All things arise and pass away. That is what it means to have a human incarnation. Nothing is fixed. Can you relax and become the loving awareness that knows this?” – Jack Kornfield

Saying Goodbye is Saying Hello (22:45)

Mark Coleman reflects on the mystery of time and how our experience in a place touches us. He and Jack share a chant that reflects on the truth of impermanence and the fruits of living in harmony with this truth. They look at the way that going through loss and change serves as a catalyst for new beginnings.

“What is your relationship to the beggining and ending of things?” – Mark Coleman

More Than This (41:15)

Jack speaks about working with past life regressions and the possibility of there being more beyond this life.
