James along with Kerry Nelson, who is with Spirit Rock's Green Group and Sean Munding, from our community, are the speakers.
Sean will be enthusiastically heading our Berkeley Community's own new Green Committee.
We will be exploring using our practice to meaningfully address the issue of climate change.
In this talk Heather shares some of her personal connection with the Thai Forest Tradition, followed by offering a map of practice from the tradition.
Sati (Mindfulness) - MahaSati (Pure Awareness) - SatiPanna (Mindfulness- Wisdom) - PannaVimudhi (Wisdom Leading to Release).
Buddhism describes conditioned experience as being dukkha (unsatisfying/suffering) in the First Noble Truth. Yet practice leads to happiness - how does this paradox resolve? This talk describes how happiness arises in/through the Eightfold Path of practice.
This talk looks at how we get imprisoned in fear based, limiting beliefs. We then explore key meditative steps that help release these veils and reveal the fullness and goodness of our essential being.
