    Ep 138 ~ What Do You Mean, 'Practice?'

    Rev. Christie Bates (Passatininna), a licensed professional counselor and ordained Buddhist lay minister of the Embracing Simplicity Contemplative Order, speaking as co-founder and teacher of Deep South Dharma, Mondays 7PM CT. This episode is a recording of the 9/20/2021 talk and discusses aspects of "practice," death and the Buddha's awakening to 1) his own cycles of death and birth, 2) how actions condition those cycles, and 3) the Practice or Path that leads to freedom from those cycles.

Teaching with her whole heart

Christie Bates is doing a fabulous job in this feed of combining dharma talks and teaching with practice techniques. She helps us all to understand and hopefully embody more of the practical Buddhist teachings into our modern day life.

Please subscribe and stay with this podcast. It’s fantastic with beautiful intention and consistency.

Thank you!
