I get a lot of questions about self-care, my meditation practice and cultivating an open heart. I have had so many great teachers and influences to guide my path over the years. Here are some Open Hearted Resources that stand out in my mind. Some are newer but most are oldies but goodies for me. Ones that I return to again and again.

A Few Resources that Help Me Cultivate an Open Heart
Insight Meditation Center – A wonderful resource for insight meditation practice and learning more about Buddhism. I really wish I lived out in the Bay area so I could attend in person. They have a full online community.
Meditation Instruction– This is how I began my meditation practice. Gil Fronsdal is wonderful teacher. This is a great foundation for Vipassana practice.
Audio Dharma – I listen Drama at least 4 days a week, mainly on my commute to work. I know listening the Dharma while driving is not very, well Dharma like, but it works for me.
Dharma Seed – A great resource to talks, teachers and centers related to Vipassana tradition in the West.
Tara Brach – I love her message of self compassion and staying present for what is no matter how scary. She is also very funny.
