Dharma Talks
2012-10-26 No Self and the Great Way 61:49
  Leela Sarti
This talk explores the fixation of identity, and the isolating limitation of being an "I" and how, when we become less engaged in the constructed, defended and fabricated, the great way of practice opens up. As we align with reality of the three characteristics of existence, we sense a different belonging and the vibrant intimacy of living an embodied life.

2012-10-24 Wise Investigation: Dissolving the Trance 1:20:25
  Tara Brach
If we are suffering, it is because we are believing something that is not true and caught in emotional reactivity. A key tool in meditation is investigation--actively inquiring into what is happening inside us. When we investigate with sincere interest and care, the light of our attention untangles difficult emotions and nourishes intimate relationships. As this light is turned toward awareness itself, it reveals the radiance and emptiness of our true nature.
