2003-10-21 Being Present 48:09
  Christina Feldman
What does it mean to be genuinely present and awake in our lives? Meditation is an exploration of the causes of disconnection and the letting go of those causes. Learning to be present is the first step on the path and a step we return to many times. It is the home of calm, joy and insight.

2003-10-20 Compassion - The Heart Beat Of The Buddha's Teaching 1:13:40
  Marcia Rose
Compassion - one of the two wings of liberation: It's the heart felt connection to beings, and our way of being in this world that ensues from this. Compassion: Arising out of a clear and deep understanding/knowing of Dukkha (the unsatisfactoriness of all phenomena); the root cause of this suffering and the way of it's end. Compassion--the heart of tenderness, openness and great strength. As we turn our capacity to unconditionally open to and accept towards suffering, we connect with our courage and strength to genuine care and move towards the alleviation of suffering.
