A Saturday morning teaching graced with Roberta's Bleeding Heart blossoms

If one really practices, one will hear the Buddhadhamma whether one is sitting underneath a tree, is lying down, or in whatever posture....Just remembering these words is not enough...we must be determined to practice to be able to see this, then our practice will really be complete.

--Ajahn Chah, Food for the Heart


We are up and running with recordings from Chas' monthly teaching with Island Insight. Chas generously also provides related blog posts and resources --  click here to access. We encourage you to post a comment on the blog page to share your experiences and thoughts as you read, listen, and practice. Let's get a community dharma conversation going...
TECHNICAL NOTE:  You can move around in the recording by using your cursor inside the bar below.  You also can download the audio file.  If you download to your computer, you may wish to first confirm where it will be saved.   A menu or window may appear that instructs you to designate a destination, or alternatively, the file may immediately move to a "Downloads" folder.  


OCTOBER 14, 2017:  Chas continues his teachings on the Four Skills a Meditator Needs to Develop.  Enjoy the dharma talk and guided meditation periods. (An approximately 20 minute meditation starts around 50:00, and an approximately 15 minute meditation starts around 1:50:00).  A bonus is the sound of falling rain, with an occasional "caw" from Island crows inviting us to wake up.
