What Do We Want For Our Children?

How can we bring value and balance to our sense of self and self-worth, not just for ourselves, but also for those we love most? The group reflects on the values that we wish to pass on to our children and the self-work that doing so requires.

Our Best Hope in Troubled Times (17:20)

What are some of the components of the spiritual path that can really help us make it through these challenging times for the better? Natasha, Duncan and Raghu explore the qualities of friendship, community and equanimity that allow for growth in the face of difficulty.

“Ralph Waldo Emerson called this type of friendship, ‘A masterpiece of nature. When we can communicate intimately with one another and support each other unselfishly – come what may. This truly is a masterpiece of human nature and our brightest of human achievements. Our best hope in troubled times.” – Raghu Markus

Love in Every Moment (39:55)

The show closes with a teaching from Ram Dass on the practice of seeing the beloved in everyone, which allows us to meet every moment with an open heart.
