17 Nov Meditation + Talk: Abiding In and Radiating Love
This Wednesday Night Meditation included a 36-minute meditation and a 45-minute talk about Abiding In and Radiating Love with guest teacher Tarané Sayler.
Tarané Sayler is a long-time dedicated Buddhist practitioner who has been involved with several Buddhist groups in the Bay Area. She has enjoyed the privilege of being on the board of directors for Dharma Eye Zen Center since 2015 and has done occasional quest teaching at Rick Hanson’s San Rafael Meditation Group at Dominican University since 2017. In 2012 she took vows in the Tibetan Buddhist Nyingma tradition with Anam Thubten Rinpoche, becoming a member of the Vidyadhara. Tarané’s practices have included sitting and studying in the traditions of Zen, Theravda, Tibetan Buddhism, and Advita Vendanta. Currently, she is particularly interested in the growing movement toward a secular Buddhism and the evolution of Buddhism as it is folded into our Western culture. In her professional life, Tarané is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Generosity itself is a beautiful practice that opens and gladdens the heart, relaxes the contraction of “self,” and ripples out into the world to touch many people – and perhaps, eventually, even oneself.
Additionally, many expressions of generosity are not about money. People offer attention, encouragement, and patience many times a day. Sometimes we withhold when it would be so easy, actually, to listen quietly for another minute or to offer a word of appreciation or simply a look that says, “I’m with you.” Try being a little more generous for a day and see what happens.
