This is my dharma talk from the East Bay Healing Collective on September 13, 2021, about community and connection.  Why does it take a great tragedy for us to reconnect with the simple truth that we need each other?  What are our resistances to being alive to our deepest needs? And how is all this deeply reflected in the Buddha dharma?  This talk took place two days after the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
