2008-05-21 Maintaining A Sense Of Vision And Practice In The Midst Of Conflicts 58:12
  Donald Rothberg
Why is it so difficult to bring practice into situations of conflict? We look at five reasons for these difficulties, each of which suggests an aspect of our practice in the midst of conflicts. We then explore some resources for nondual conflict transformation, particularly the middle way of the Buddha and a "both-and" vision for working with conflicts.

2008-05-14 Golfing With Monkeys 1:10:38
  Tara Brach
The Buddha taught that in any moment that we have an argument with life, we suffer. This talk explores the ways we are conditioned to think life should be different, and how the natural arising of unpleasant experience becomes locked into suffering. An experiential reflection guides us in how to respond, rather than react, to life's challenges...inhabiting a wise heart.
