2017-02-05 Opening to Experience: How and When (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:03
  James Baraz
One of the most profound gifts of retreat practice is learning to open to our experience. We develop confidence, courage, compassion and insight as we are willing to work with all the challenging and beautiful places the mind can take us to. And it's also good to know when it's more skillful to not open to those places if we need to have a stronger container to hold them. Qualities that support this opening such as forgiveness, patience, sense of humor, and self-compassion are explored.

2017-02-04 Patience in Practice and Life 55:25
  Sally Clough Armstrong
Patience is one of the paramis, the 10 beautiful qualities of the heart/mind that we develop in our sincere practice. Patience is essential if we are to deepen in meditation, especially on long retreats, as it allows us to be present when things are difficult or not exciting, which can be a lot of the time! True patience not just tolerance, a willingness to put up with things until they get better. Patience is a full body experience, a commitment to being present with care and acceptance. Patience brings with it many other wholesome factors such as contentment and equanimity.

2017-02-03 First and Second Noble Truths (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 60:44
  Guy Armstrong
The First Noble Truth, that there is suffering in life, has a call to action: this truth is to be fully understood. The Second Noble Truth, that the cause of suffering is craving, also has a call to action: craving is to be abandoned. Abandoning craving moves us to the Third Noble Truth, the end of suffering.
