Audio Download: Mindful Relationships with Lama Marut and Cindy Lee

Lama Marut and Cindy Lee recently gave a series of three talks on Mindful Relationships: exploring how to apply spiritual principles to our relationships so as to maximize the rewarding aspects and minimize the difficulties. The talks are structured around “beginning,” “maintaining and deepening,” and “letting go” of holding too tightly to our close connections with others. In this series, they also focused on cultivating the qualities outlined in a practice called the “Six Perfections.”  To download the audio files from the first Session, please follow this link: http://siddha-songs.com/downloads/mindful-relationships/ More audio files will be up soon!
