2016-04-27 Listening with an Awake Heart 69:36
  Tara Brach
True listening both nurtures and expresses evolving consciousness. This talk explores our ego-based conditioning to have an agenda or defendedness that prevents deep listening, and the strategies that evolve our capacity to listen fully to ourselves and others. When our listening is openhearted and full, it enables deep understanding and connectedness, and provides a transformative healing space for those who receive our listening attention.

Dedicated to the inquiry into notions that embed the practice of mind-ful-ness — the concepts and metaphors of awareness, attention, nowness, concentration will be examined. A number of exercises help to re-contextualise mindfulness in practical ways in the light of early Buddhist psychology and contemporary approaches to meditation.
