2012-10-20 Insight Dialogue: The Power, Challenges and Joy of Meditating Together (Part 2 of 3) 2:39:36
  Gregory Kramer
Humans are relational beings -- pack animals, born and raised in families, working and living together. Much of our suffering is people-suffering. We meditate to be free from suffering, yet sometimes a gap arises when interpersonal suffering is being addressed in intrapersonal meditation. We perpetuate the "island universe" of the individual self even as we seek freedom. Insight Dialogue is a fully relational meditation practice based on Buddhist Vipassana Insight meditation and a relational understanding of the Dhamma. The mind is invited to stillness and keen mindfulness even as we remain in dialogue with others. Here we meet the shared human experience that transcends our very real differences in genetics, background, and worldly circumstances.

2012-10-20 To Be With Life 41:19
  Jose Reissig
Much of our daily life is make-believe. To be with the real we have to withdraw from this charade and embrace our actual experience, including the perception of impermanence.

2012-10-20 Coming Home to Who You Are: Discovering Your Natural Capacity for Love, Integrity, and Compassion. Part 1 of 4 1:13:22
  David Richo
Love, integrity and compassion are inborn in all of us. We benefit greatly however when we learn to practice them in effective ways. In the Buddhist, and in many other spiritual traditions, our 'right conduct' is a primary pathway to happiness and enlightened living. In psychological terms, it can lead us to fearless love, freedom from ego-centeredness, and contentment with ourselves and our predicaments. Most of all, we find the joy of living our lives at a heart level. We will find specific psychological and spiritual practices that can usher us into a new way of being alive -- as cheerful agents of the goodness that is in us all. Our choices for integrity and loving-kindness reflect that goodness and help us co-create a world of justice, peace, and love. This is an owners' guide to being an upright and loving human. Based on Dave's book with this same title.
