2016-08-18 "The Tall Poppy and the Shrinking Violet" 49:23
  James Baraz
Strong identification with self often leads to an insecurity that can manifest in two extremes: someone hungry for recognition, validation and praise or someone who is shy, lost in self-judgment, and afraid of being exposed as an impostor. Both of these are all too human. There is a middle path where one knows ones worth and appreciates their wholesome qualities while not identifying with them. This talk explores how practice can support a wise understanding that allows us to just be ourselves and know that is enough.

2016-08-17 How Hope Can Heal and Free Us – Part 2 1:15:23
  Tara Brach
The mature expression of hope includes three elements: the aspiration for manifesting our full potential, a trust that this is possible, and an energy that engages to serve this unfolding. In this talk, we explore the importance of hope on the spiritual path, its shadow side, and how we can nourish hope through these three elements in a way that serves inner freedom and the healing of our world. Reflection: “When you’re feeling most alive and present, what’s going on? What are you doing? What do you love? Take a moment to take one thing that you know you really love – imagine it – sense yourself engaged in what you love. What’s going on inside you that makes this so precious? Sense who you are when you’re doing what you love. Know that this is another pathway to belonging – to your heart – to aliveness. This is a pathway to living with the sense of possibility in every moment.” ~ Tara
