2015-03-24 Contentment 39:06
  Jason Murphy
Can we be at ease with whatever the situation is, whether it is pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral? In this day and age of discontentment, effort put into this practice gives us hope of realizing contentment. We can realize contentment one breath at a time. We have the power to shape our minds. We have the ability to feel and know suffering and be liberated from it. And it is up to us to do the practice, for one who is content is free from greed, anger and delusion.

2015-03-24 Thinning the Self - Practicing with Anatta (Not-Self) 60:53
  Donald Rothberg
After some reflections on some of the reasons why anatta (not-self) can be confusing, we explore especially how to practice with anatta: (1) opening to a sense of flow increasingly without a sense of self; (2) exploring the many ways in which there is a "thick" sense of self, both appearing in experience and sometimes hidden to immediate experience; (3) further meditative ways to "thin" the self; and (4) ways of thinning, especially as our practice deepens, the "meditative self."

  Helen Stephenson
By turning inward we meet our shadows that we so easily can see outside of us and around us. Only by meeting our own shadow with love we can create integration and better social worlds. Looking at the body we can see how each part is communication, cooperating with each other.
