February 2018 Against The Stream San Francisco Sangha
In February 2018 Caverly was honored to offer a dharma talk at Against the Stream in San Francisco, CA. The practice group was welcoming and engaging, and this video features a recording of the evening's sit and teachings.
Creating Conscious Intentions
When we move on behalf of the recognition of our true nature, a conscious intention becomes a way to align all aspects of our lives with our deepest understanding and recognition of truth. A conscious intention is seeped in possibility. While it may even look similar on some level, on the surface, to a conditioned goal, it is born of different soil. It is not what, it is how. Conscious intention is a reflection of the infinite possibility exhibited in all of life. It is grounded in the recognition of our wholeness. It is enlivened by Love.

Certainty in an Uncertain World
We forget that we are, inherently, the balance that we seek. It’s not situational. If you embrace the darkness of the tunnel, or the density of a forest with a thick canopy – the busyness of our lives is just that. It’s just like walking through a forest. It is possible to find the openness in the dark places. This cannot happen, however, when the attention is consumed by the narrative that there is something wrong — with where we are, with how we are, with who we are.
