Meditation —"Just Be"—Video Teaching from Sogyal Rinpoche

More than half the local San Diego Rigpa sangha is away in the South of France at Lerab Ling, Rigpa's international retreat center. There's a skeleton crew (sounds vaguely Dharmic, doesn't it?) holding down the office. They're certainly available if you want to order books or teachings from ZAM, the Rigpa publications arm. Books and teachings can certainly bridge the gap until classes resume in the Fall and we see Sogyal Rinpoche here (!!!) at the Bahia Hotel retreat in November.

Meanwhile, since I (Laura) am still in San Diego wanting to be closer to my teacher today, I searched Youtube for a video. How wonderful is this technology?
This video is well worth the time. Running just under ten minutes, I found that it cut through my thoughts and brought me back to the present in a very loving way. ("Just Be" is something he talks about, not the name of the teaching, FYI.)

I found that it got really juicy after the 8 minute mark, so hold on at least until you hear the bit about the "Natural Strip Tease". It's about stripping away layers until you find your true self.

Enjoy! And remember, you can always just bookmark this post to watch it later. It's perfect for anyone who finds themselves busy and distracted ever. Anyone ever feel like that? :-)

May you be happy, well, and safe.
