2012-01-25 Faith in Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha: What Do I Believe 48:59
  Joseph Kappel
In this talk Joseph speaks about faith in Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha and how belief and faith are interconnected. The intricate and interwoven nature of these is central to one’s humanity and critical to deepening one’s religious and spiritual life. He relates it in very personal terms using his own journey as a former soldier and monk to reveal how this sojourn we’re on, is one that offers multiple opportunities to take strides along the path to liberation from all that binds one to the perpetual wheel of samsara (myriad births & deaths).

  James Baraz
Suffering is an integral part of life—the First Noble Truth. How is it possible that some people go through suffering and even trauma and, instead of becoming bitter or damaged, use it as a catalyst for deep compassion and awakening? Most people don’t realize they have the choice to work skillfully with regard to the challenges life gives them. This is one of the greatest blessings of practice. Consciously appreciating this blessing brings a deeper connection to practice.

2012-01-27 Psychotherapy and Meditation 1:47:01
  Mark Epstein
This evening’s talk will address the overlap between psychotherapy and meditation, from the perspective of a Western psychiatrist whose introduction to the study of the mind came through Buddhist meditation. Discussion will center on how primal emotions like aggression and desire are handled. While it is often assumed that Buddhism counsels suppression or eradication of such energies, Mark Epstein will propose another model. Drawn from his studies of both D.W. Winnicott and the Buddha, this evening’s presentation will use the Buddha’s own inner struggle as a model for our own. Meditation instruction will be offered. Mark Epstein is a Harvard trained psychiatrist with a private practice in New York City. A longtime student of Joseph Golstein and Jack Kornfield, he is the author of a number of works about the overlap of Buddhism and psychotherapy, including Thoughts without a Thinker, Going to Pieces without Falling Apart, and Psychotherapy without the Self.
