It’s there, within you:  an ability to be still and clear in every moment of your busy life. But, alas, there are a few hundred other channels of sensations, thoughts and mental events that make that crazy-difficult to experience.
 
In this Dharma Talk, you will become acquainted with obstacles to stillness such as speed of thought, habitual patterns, and highly-entertaining stories about the world and ourselves. And, you will experience a guided meditation to help you connect with this indestructible stillness as you synchronize body and mind in your space.
