Dharmabytes Podcast: Live Like a River Flows

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 2 Apr, 2020 - 14:00

Ratnavandana offers a personal sharing of her reflections on a six month solitary retreat where she was focussing on the Heart Sutra.

We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation. There is a lot to respond to, to think about and to process. Staying at home, you might well be spending more time online than ever. Perhaps your thoughts and emotions have taken on the pace and tone of newsfeeds and daily data: quick, scattered, and emotionally overwhelming.
