Deerhaven 2015 Ninth Night Dhamma Talk

This is the last of the series of dhamma talks provided during the retreat.  At the beginning, Tommy Harrison gave a brief talk on the power of generosity and gratitude for the teachings and the practice.  After that, Peter reviewed the week’s progression of practice and described various ways that the process of awakening can be furthered after the retreat ended and regular life routines resumed.

Practice Questions

During this talk, Peter answered questions from the sangha members attending the meeting, with an emphasis on practical applications of mindfulness meditation to daily life routines, particularly the benefits of slow walking meditation.

Next week’s talk is on Thanksgiving Eve, so the dialogue will focus on gratitude, from the perspective of both receiving and giving.
