Reawakening to our Buddha Nature

This series of dharma talks will be exploring how to awaken to our Buddha nature which as noted by Jack Kornfield in the forward to Radical Acceptance is “the fundamental happiness and freedom that are the birthrights of every human being.”

The main resource will be Radical Acceptance:  Enhancing your Life with the Heart of the Buddha by Tara Brach (Bantam Books, New York, 2003).  The talks will explore the topic of each chapter with the intent to relate to our own experience and to the teachings of the Buddha.

At the end of each talk, there are two assignments, Reflection and Meditation.  The Buddha’s method of teach was threefold:  (1) state the dharma, (2) have the listeners reflect on it and (3) experience it.  The assignments are intended to assist you with fully assimilating the teachings through this process.
