2009-05-16 Supports for Samadhi: An overview of the Buddha’s teachings on some of the beautiful qualities of mind and heart that lead to deepening concentration. 55:22
  Sally Clough Armstrong
The role of concentration is central to the Buddha’s teaching. This can be seen by the emphasis placed on it in some of the key Buddhist lists, such as the Noble Eightfold Path, the Five Spiritual Faculties, the Seven Factors Of Awakening and the 12 links of Transcendent Dependent Arising. This talk looks at the qualities we can develop in our practice that support concentration, such as faith, mindfulness, happiness and contentment.

2009-05-15 No Self, No World 63:22
  Rob Burbea

This talk explores some of the possible ways a meditator might work in practice to develop and strengthen such radical and liberating insights.
