2011-01-12 Evolving Consciousness--Beyond limiting Identities 1:19:36
  Tara Brach
The flag of trance is identifying as a separate, deficient self. This talk explores how developmentally we can get fixated on fears and unmet needs and cut off from the wholeness of Being that is our true nature. We explore the power of mindfulness --seeking not to change but to understand--and the expression of that understanding as love. The talk includes guided reflections that can help us recognize and awaken from the confines of trance.

  Donald Rothberg
In this second talk of the retreat, we explore further the spirit of metta, through teachings and stories, focusing as well on the themes of metta as a concentration practice, as opening a process of purification, and, as it matures, as increasingly embodied and wise.

The "Introduction to Metta" talk positions metta as the particular form of mindfulness that reflects the third foundation of mindfulness, attention to the contents of mind.
