2011-07-08 Papanca Part Three: The Brahma Viharas 52:50
  John Peacock
This talk deals with the last of the areas of our obsessional thinking: views. We also examine the Brahma Viharas as distinct forms of mindfulness that lead to liberation. We look closely, in particular, at metta as the necessary soil out of which grows and blooms the beautiful flower of compassion (karuna).

2011-07-07 You Have a Choice 49:35
  James Baraz
We each have our own unique journey. While there are as many different possibilities as there are people, we have a choice whether to go through life as a heavy assignment or as an extraordinary adventure of awakening. If we're fortunate enough to discover a spiritual path that supports the latter, we want to make the most of our opportunity.

In the moments when we are truly happy, there is a sense of both aliveness and presence. This talk reflects on three key ways we remove ourselves from living presence; and offers guided reflections that can re-open us into the flow.

2011-07-06 Papanca Part Two: The Tyranny of the Self 46:09
  John Peacock
In this talk we examine what the Buddha means by the 'self', which is the second of the three poles around which thinking contracts and fixates. We look closely at the five processes that constitute the self not as a static phenomena, but as an unfolding and dynamic development.
