2010-05-19 Desire and Spiritual Freedom 1:18:31
  Tara Brach
The Buddha taught that becoming identified with "wanting mind" obscures our true nature and binds us in suffering. This talk explores a wise attitude in relating to desire, and offers three pathways towards freedom: Mindfulness of "wanting mind," trancing back desire to its source, and radical non-clinging.

  Eugene Cash
The judging mind helps hold the sense of self as a static entity. Compassion allows us to be with all manifestations, however painful, allowing for healing and release.

2010-05-18 Demands, Defenses and Distractions: Exploring Obstacles to Presence 51:03
  Martin Aylward
We get pulled away from ourselves in different ways. This talk explores both the mechanisms of how we get disconnected from being present, and how come those mechanisms exert such a powerful pull on our consciousness. The exploration encourages a careful and caring investigation of those obstacles, as the way to understand, and liberate them.
