The last in a series of talks--an outline of the twelve factors of "liberative" or "transcendental" dependent origination, an analysis of the cycle leading from being able to work with suffering through to liberation.
When we are stressed, our way of relating to each other is ego to ego. This talk explores the understandings and practices that enable us to embody "nameste": Honoring the sacred that lives through all beings.
We look at (1) the importance of speech practice; (2) the practice of cultivating inner and outer awareness at the same time; (3) the roles of awareness, intention, and action in speech practice; and (4) the speech guidelines of the Buddha. We end with a guided practice period.
