2014-01-24 Identity and Being 52:50
  Leela Sarti
Who am I beyond concepts and ideas about myself? What does it mean to experience myself as a medium of consciousness? What is it that needs to wake up and what goes through transformation? This evening talk inquires into how embodied presence allows experience to arise in a more complete and whole way. As our capacity to be clear and sensitive evolves we become more malleable in our being, more real in our understanding and capable to respond rather than react to life.

2014-01-24 Equanimity 67:31
  Marcia Rose
Equanimity is the equipoise…the balance or equilibrium between the opposing forces in the mind of the desired and the undesired. It is that point of balance in the middle of the see-saw of life and is based on a clear presence of mind. Two insights that are the basis of equanimity are the understanding of karma and insight into the nature of not-self. Both of these understandings are explored in this talk in relationship to equanimity.

2014-01-25 Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain - Part 1 1:23:11
  Dan Siegel
Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation. According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel's New York Times bestseller Brainstorm, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another. In Brainstorm, Siegel illuminates how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children’s lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide. Brainstorm is a New York Times bestseller and current nominee for a Books for a Better Life award

2014-01-25 Radiant Stillness 42:43
  Leela Sarti
It is transforming to simply pause, sense and listen instead of immediately filling up the space. When we become sensitive and attuned to the neutral tone in life it can become an entry to the stillness of the ground of being. With the help of poetry and stories, unfabricated silence and the power of not knowing is invited into the practice space. An invitation to shift our weight, more profoundly than the mind can imagine, to the unfabricated, the unconditioned, the deathless.

2014-01-26 The Power of Coincidence on the Spiritual Path, part 1 59:10
  David Richo
A series of unusual events or a combination of similar happenings may not be mere coincidence. Synchronicity is the meaningful coincidence or connection of events that can set the course of our life. They can guide us, warn us, and confirm us on our life's path. Drawing on Jung's concept of synchronicity, with insights from psychology and Buddhism, we explore how synchronicity, (i.e., meaningful coincidence) operates in our daily lives, in our intimate relationships, and in our creative endeavors.
