    "Being Moved By Life" With Amanda Stiler, in the Open Dharma sangha weekly talk

    in Spirituality

     


    For Amanda, the love of Movement through Ballet at an early age informed her love of aliveness.  In the early 1990s her thirst to understand a deeper meaning of life led her to Insight Meditation, in her homeland New Zealand. With many endings in 2005, Amanda set off abroad into a life on the road, too investigate "Who Am I?" and "What is this life, really?", leading her to many meditation retreats and volunteer center positions in India, Europe and USA. Her biggest influence being Open Dharma and deep rest meditation, leading her to become a Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner in 2008 and retreat manager for OD retreats in California 2013 and 2014. She presently lives in Santa Cruz, CA with her husband Jay.


    The talk "Being Moved by Life" is inspired by a Wendell Berry poem, along with an exploration into walking meditation during a long retreat in India with Open Dharma. (23 minutes)

    "Learning From The Ordinary" With Tracy Williams, weekly Open Dharma Sangha Talk

    in Spirituality

    "I'm from New Zealand and am taking a year (or more) off work. I'm currently living at Dharmaloca as caretaker for the next 3 months- then who knows! I met Jaya in India in 2006 at Budhgaya and have since sat a number of Open Dharma retreats. I love the inclusivity and grounded spaciousness of Open Dharma teachings.


    This talk is not what i originally planned! In it I speak about the ordinary- the delicious and often extraordinary ordinariness of being an embodied humanoid, living our Dharma. At least I think that's what I speak about". (18 min)

Some of the juiciest streams in my practise of late are centred around cultivating wildness, living at the frontier of direct relationship with life and effortlessness.
