2010-08-02 Recognizing and Understanding Obstructive Tendencies 57:15
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
Examines the tendency to seek gratification through the senses and the tendency to be preoccupied with objects of the mind.
2010-08-09 Cultivate Non-Attachment 52:12
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
Through practice we learn to relate with non-attachment to the condition of the body and mind as well as the conditions of our lives. We do this through the practice of the four foundations of mindfulness, the cultivation of somadhi and the gradual eroding of self-view. Then we are well-positioned for insight.
2010-08-16 It May Get Worse Before It Gets Better 53:21
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
In the early years, practice is driven by the very states we are trying to overcome. But it seems to get worse before it gets better - as we let go of self-view.
2010-08-23 Doubt and Confusion 52:10
  Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
This talk includes a brief description of the classical meaning of skeptical doubt as well as a more comprehensive examination of everyday doubt and confusion and how to work with this state.
