2011-11-28 Freedom From Attachment 48:40
  Mark Coleman
How do you work with desire and attachment in the midst of daily life? Buddhist teachings give clear guidance on the power of exploring and understanding how the process of attachment arises and how we can cultivate a healthy relationship to desire and the sensory world. Mark gives many anecdotes from his personal journey with this theme.

2011-11-28 Not Making Two 61:41
  Winnie Nazarko
At the end of retreat, there are often concerns about how to take "this" back home. If we define "this" too narrowly, with a dualistic mind, we will miss the chance to practice effectively when we return to the conditions of lay life.Lay life is different, and offers the opportunity for practice which is broader, more dynamic, and more relational than that done on retreat. The Buddha himself saw his teachings as useful and beneficial to lay people as well as monastics, sometimes in surprising applications. Some of his teachings for lay people are discussed, clarifying that the 8 Fold Path can be practiced outside of silent retreat, in daily life.

  Sky Dawson
Nibbana is the coolness of letting go when there is no grasping or resistance. When we do hold on; when we can put aside; how do we detach.
