The Eighth Limb: Samadhi

Thandie Newton, actress known for her role on ER, gave this wonderful talk on Oneness which is fitting for our focus on Samadhi this month.  It is about fourteen minutes long.  Try to find the time to sit and listen.  You don't need to watch, you can if you want.  You could try centering yourself on your breath in a comfortable seat and then enjoy a gentle ujaayi breath while you allow the talk to rain down on you and soak in.  Give yourself some time in silence after the talk, perhaps a period of meditation.  Then you might like to journal / write stream of consciousness to see what insights arise for you, to see how you initially integrate the talk and then over time see how the dharma continues to feed you.
