2015-03-27 Practicing in All the Parts of Our Lives: "Let Your Practice and Life Be One" 59:03
  Donald Rothberg
On this last evening of our monthlong retreat (two months for some), we explore how to bring our practice out in our daily lives in the world. We examine (1) the nature of the archetypal "return" in the spiritual journey; (2) the figure of the bodhisattva; and 3) some suggestions for foundational, intermediate, and advanced modes of daily life practice.

  James Baraz
The Buddha said that hatred never ceases by hatred, but only by love. How can we heal from interactions with others that have hurt us or closed our heart? Once we learn to hold what has happened in a wise way, the heart can open and transform the hurt into compassionate understanding.

2015-03-25 Three Liberating Gifts: Part 1 - Forgiveness 1:12:54
  Tara Brach
This 3 part series is based on a teaching story from the Upanishads that shows our potential to awaken from an ego-based trance and discover the full luminosity and freedom of our natural awareness. In each class we'll explore one of the three gifts considered as essential on the spiritual path. The first is the capacity to forgive, to let go of the blame and resentment that prevents our hearts from being open and free. The second gift is "inner fire," the capacity to devote ourselves wholeheartedly to what we most cherish. The third gift is a "mirror" or the capacity to look deeply into our own hearts and minds and realize the truth of who we are. Each class includes guided meditations that explore how these gifts can be nourished right here and now in our lives.
