2013-02-07 From Me to We 66:43
  Bob Doppelt
Bob presented five transformational commitments, which are grounded in psychology, ecosystem science, and dharma principles, that are the basis of the shift in consciousness needed to rescue the planet and our lives. He distributed a handout that outlines five natural laws, the related Buddhist principles, and the five commitments, which you can refer to as you listen to his talk. The five commitments are designed to help us shift from a sole focus on ‘me’ to prioritizing the broader ‘we,’ encouraging us to make a personal commitment to protect all life on the planet, free our minds from outdated and erroneous beliefs, and begin to think and act sustainably.

2013-02-08 The Suffering that Leads to the End of Suffering 55:47
  Sally Clough Armstrong
The First Noble Truth tells us how it really is - there is and there will be suffering in any and every life. But this is not just gloomy news, but rather an invitation to turn towards suffering so we begin to understand it, its nature and its causes, so we need no longer to cause our own suffering, or to feel a vicitm of suffering - that we have done something wrong because we are suffering. Opening to suffering also tenderizes the heart, as we open to the depth and the breadth of our own suffering, and the suffering of the world. This is the path to compassion and to freedom.

2013-02-08 The Wandering Mind 61:39
  Andrea Fella
In our meditation practice, we often view the wandering mind as something that we have to overcome in order to deepen in our practice. But we can actually investigate the wandering mind as a mental phenomenon, and learn a lot about the way our minds work, deepening in our practice through this very investigation.
