Iyanla Vanzant‘s Fixins: Being Stuck.
Streamed live on May 14, 2014.
“Being Stuck
We have all had the experience of being stuck –
– Not knowing what to do next or how to do it;
– Doing the same ting over and over but getting nowhere;
– Feeling unhappy or unfulfilled about where we are in life but afraid to take the next step to get out of where we are;
– Being unable or unwilling to do what is required to move forward
– And the big one . . . Excuses, Stories and more Excuses for not doing what we know we need to do.
Being stuck is an internal – – psychological, mental, emotional response to what may seem like physical limitations or restrictions.
The issue becomes – – how do we get unstuck?”

“on Iyanla’s Fixins we discussed how to deal with loving someone who just doesn’t love you back.”

Louise Hay – assisting in your own healing.
“RECENTLY DUBBED “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media, Louise L. Hay is also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. Revised and expanded in 1988, this best-selling book introduced Louise’s concepts to people in 33 different countries and has been translated into 25 languages throughout the world.

Through Louise’s healing techniques and positive philosophy, millions have learned how to create more of what they want in their lives, including more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits. Her own personal philosophy was forged from her tormented upbringing. Her childhood was unstable and impoverished, and her teen years were marked by abuse. Louise ran away from home and ended up in New York City, where she became a model and married a prosperous businessman. Although it appeared that her life had turned around, it was not until the marriage ended 14 years later that her healing really began.” Read more here.

Conversations on Compassion with Thich Nhat Hanh and James Doty, MD,.
“The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) is honored to host a discussion with Thich Nhat Hanh about his life experiences and the role compassion has played throughout them. Thich Nhat Hanh is an internationally renowned Zen master, prolific author, and teacher on the subjects of peace, mindfulness, and meditation. He became a monk at the age of sixteen and went on to help found the “engaged Buddhism” movement. His life’s work has been dedicated to “inner transformation for the benefit of individuals and society” and he was nominated by Nobel Laureate Martin Luther King, Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.”

Don Miquel Ruiz Desire.
“In this beautiful 20 min video don Miguel talks to us about the two paths of desire. He talks about how desire has often been labeled as bad or good but is really neither. Everything we experience in life begins in our imagination and it is only through desire that we choose to take action and bring the things we want into our life. We either desire something and take action to bring it about or we do not desire it so we take no action. He shares with us how desire will ultimately lead to one of two paths if we take action. One path, chosen with complete faith and without any doubt, leads to inspiration. The other path, chosen though full of doubt, leads to attachment, need and obsession. With Inspiration, life becomes easy, and can bring us into ecstasy.”

Mingyur Rinpoche ~ Calming the Mind: The Practice of Awareness Meditation.
Public Talk by Mingyur Rinpoche, Lerab Ling, France, 11 September 2010.
Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche (/?j???e?/; born 1975) is a Nepalese teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He has authored two best-selling books and oversees the Tergar Meditation Community, a global network of Buddhist meditation centers.
Mingyur Rinpoche was born in Nepal in 1975, the youngest of six brothers. From the age of nine, his father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, taught him meditation, passing on to him the most essential instructions of the Dzogchen and Mahamudra traditions.

At the age of eleven, Mingyur Rinpoche began studies at Sherab Ling Monastery in northern India, the seat of Tai Situ Rinpoche. Two years later, Mingyur Rinpoche began a traditional three-year retreat at Sherab Ling. At age twenty, Mingyur Rinpoche became the functioning abbot of Sherab Ling. At twenty-three, he received full monastic ordination. During this time, Mingyur Rinpoche received important Dzogchen transmissions from Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche.

In 2007, Rinpoche completed the construction of Tergar Monastery in Bodhgaya, India, which will serve large numbers of people attending Buddhist events at this sacred pilgrimage site, serve as an annual site for month-long Karma Kagyu scholastic debates, and serve as an international study institute for the Sangha and laity. The institute will also have a medical clinic for local people.

Rinpoche has overseen the Kathmandu Tergar Osel Ling Monastery, founded by his father, since 2010. He also opened a shedra (monastic college) at the monastery.
