2017-08-10 Becoming Mindful of Thought (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:54
  Tempel Smith
Most people are lost in thought, mesmerized by thought, experiencing the content of thought as real events. With the practice of mindfulness we can first learn to turn away from the dominance of thought, and then bring awareness to the direct experience of thinking as a present time experience.

2017-08-09 Meditation: Listening to Life 19:20
  Tara Brach
The attitude of meditation is one of engaged listening – a relaxed, receptive yet intimate attention. This meditation explores how we can listen to sounds, listen to and feel sensations, and then relax back into the ocean of awareness that includes and perceives the changing waves. In this relaxing back, we realize the peace and freedom of inhabiting our wholeness and essence.

2017-08-09 Three Blessings in Spiritual Life – Part 3: A Mirror 55:49
  Tara Brach
This 3- part series explores three capacities we all have, that when cultivated, bring spiritual awakening and serve the healing of our world. Drawing on an ancient teaching story from India, we explore together the power of a forgiving heart, the inner fire that expresses as courage and dedication, and the inquiry of “who am I” that reveals our deepest nature. From the talk: “These are three qualities often described as the essence of awareness: wakeful, open, tender.” And a blessing: “May all beings everywhere remember and trust the loving awareness that is our source. May all beings everywhere live in natural and great peace. May we touch true joy in living. May all beings everywhere awaken and be free.”

The root of suffering is the mind's habits to see permanence in what is impermanent, satisfaction in what is not satisfying, and self in what is not self.
