  Sylvia Boorstein
This talk, filled with contemporary stories as well as traditional accounts of the Buddha's enlightenment, makes the connection between wisdom and equanimity - and shows how lovingkindness, compassion, and appreciation are permutations of equanimity in situations that are neutral, unpleasant (troubling) and excitingly pleasant.

2009-01-07 The Three Refuges 1:26:33
  Tara Brach
The spiritual path can be understood as forgetting and remembering. We suffer when we lose sight of truth, of love, of awareness. And we touch freedom in the moments of remembering. This talk includes guided reflections on three gateways to remembering: three refuges--buddha, dharma and sangha--that are the foundation of classical Buddhist teachings and profoundly relevant in our contemporary lives.
