2014-08-21 Reflection. Cittānupassanā continued. Sati as relationship; the construction of relationship in analogy to our senses. Ways in: Three practical entry points into the contemplation of mind. 26:32
  Akincano Marc Weber
Follow-up on Contemplation of mind from previous week. Need to clarify the "how“ of being mindful rather than habitually resort to a – possibly unconscious – way of doing so. (Examples) How to find an entry to Contemplations of mind-states and learning to understand them rather than marinate in them.

2014-08-20 Bringing Awareness to Doing 1:19:07
  Tara Brach
One of the core domains of egoic trance is addictive doing - chronic activity driven by fear and wanting that keeps us from realizing a wholeness of Being. This talk looks at how addictive doing keeps us in the map of time, identified as a separate self, always on our way somewhere else. We then explore ways we undo this conditioning by pausing and opening to the liberating dimension of Being.
