  James Baraz
The Buddha said that hatred never ceases by hatred, but only by love. How can we heal from interactions with others that have hurt us or closed our heart? Once we learn to hold what has happened in a wise way, the heart can open and transform the hurt into compassionate understanding.

2015-03-25 Three Liberating Gifts: Part 1 - Forgiveness 1:12:54
  Tara Brach
This 3 part series is based on a teaching story from the Upanishads that shows our potential to awaken from an ego-based trance and discover the full luminosity and freedom of our natural awareness. In each class we'll explore one of the three gifts considered as essential on the spiritual path. The first is the capacity to forgive, to let go of the blame and resentment that prevents our hearts from being open and free. The second gift is "inner fire," the capacity to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to what we most cherish. The third gift is a "mirror" or the capacity to look deeply into our own hearts and minds and realize the truth of who we are. Each class includes guided meditations that explore how these gifts can be nourished right here and now in our lives.

2015-03-24 Contentment 39:06
  Jason Murphy
This talk was given as part of the series "Eight Great Thoughts" (Anguttara Nikaya 8:30). Can we be at ease with whatever the situation is, whether it is pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral? In this day and age of discontentment, effort put into this practice gives us hope of realizing contentment. We can realize contentment one breath at a time. We have the power to shape our minds. We have the ability to feel and know suffering and be liberated from it. And it is up to us to do the practice, for one who is content is free from greed, anger and delusion.
