2013-10-30 Healing Self-Doubt 1:22:57
  Tara Brach
Siddhartha Gautama’s last challenge before enlightenment was doubt, and to some degree, most of us live with limiting beliefs about our own worthiness and goodness. This talk looks at the tenacity of self-doubt and the power of mindfulness, investigation and compassion in releasing its grip.
2013-11-06 Part 1: Vulnerability, Intimacy, & Spiritual Awakening 1:29:13
  Tara Brach
We each live with uncertainty and the fear of rejection and loss, and we each are conditioned to avoid feeling or expressing that vulnerability. Yet intimacy with this unlived life is the gateway to connecting authentically with others, full aliveness and spiritual realization. These talks explore the ways that we defend ourselves, and the pathway to gently, wisely and intelligently disarming and freeing our hearts.

2013-11-20 Accessing Innate Wisdom 1:24:52
  Tara Brach
Wisdom is an innate capacity, but often covered over by trance. This talk explores how we abandon ourselves as we busily seek ways to feel more worthy, loveable and safe. We then look at the pathway home, the radical non-doing and space of silence that allows wisdom and love to flow through.
2013-11-27 The Evolving of Generosity 1:26:21
  Tara Brach
This talk explores how we can open out of the habit of grasping and deliberately nourish our natural capacity for generosity, for living love.
2013-12-11 Part 1: Evolving Toward Unconditional Love 1:27:04
  Tara Brach
This two part series explores the evolutionary conditioning of fear and judgment that contracts us away from love and acceptance, and the quality of mindful presence—in relating inwardly and in communicating with others—that awakens and frees our hearts.
2013-12-18 Part 2: Evolving Toward Unconditional Love 1:18:50
  Tara Brach
This two part series explores the evolutionary conditioning of fear and judgment that contracts us away from love and acceptance, and the quality of mindful presence - in relating inwardly and in communicating with others - that awakens and frees our hearts. At end of talk - La Sarmiento shares "Holiday Dharma" as part of Solstice celebration.
2014-01-08 Path of True Refuge 1:23:56
  Tara Brach
This talk explores the three archetypal gateways to liberation - awareness (Buddha), truth (Dharma) and love (Sangha). It includes guided reflections and a refuge ceremony that can help us discover the path “inside out” through daily life.
2014-01-22 Listening to the Song 1:24:51
  Tara Brach
Listening with our full heart and attention is the gateway to understanding and love. This talk explores the challenges to deep listening, and offers ways of paying attention that awaken a healing listening presence.
2014-02-05 Part 1: Universal Faces of Love 1:24:25
  Tara Brach
Lovingkindness, or metta, is the first of the four divine abodes in buddhist teachings. This talk explores the habitual patterns of fears and wants that obscure this innate quality of heart and key ways that we awaken ourselves to its luminous presence.
