  Tara Brach
We are deeply conditioned to respond to impermanence and inevitable loss by trying to control our experience. Our egoic reactivity prevents us from responding wisely to our life, and living the moments fully. This talk looks at how we can let go of controlling, open to the groundlessness we run from, and reconnect with the deep intelligence and love that flows through our being.

2012-11-14 The Noble Eightfold Path to Freedom - Talk 1 of 3 1:32:46
  Gina Sharpe
The Fourth Noble Truth expounded by the Buddha is that there is a Path to Freedom, to Liberation, to the sure heart’s release. He said that freedom is possible, and that if it were not possible, he would not ask us to walk the path to it. How can we use all of our life, its 10,000 joys and its 10,000 sorrows, as the ground of liberation, of freedom? By understanding the three pronged path of Meditation, of living a life of Integrity, and of developing Wisdom and putting our understanding into action, liberation is not a distant goal, but a present moment experience. Through practice, reflection and inquiry, we will deepen our understanding of the Path, its obstacles and its realization.
