2008-11-23 The One Dimensional Polity 46:52
  Jose Reissig
When ruled by the I, we see the world around us -- politics included -- through the narrow focus of whether "our side" wins or loses. What a waste!

2008-11-22 The One Dimensional Self 42:03

2008-11-21 Living in the Truth 66:18
  Rob Burbea
A life dedicated to discovering the Truth of things is a life lived beautifully, and leading organically to freedom from suffering. Yet we frequently approach our seeking with hidden attachments to assumptions, preconceptions and views (often about Truth or the ways it is realised) that hinder a really complete, far-reaching, open and radical inquiry. On every level, from the personal to the mystical and ultimate, how can we give free reign to the heart's longing to live the truth?

2008-11-20 Dependent Origination: An Overview 57:49
  Sally Clough Armstrong
The Buddha considered Dependent Origination to be his most profound insight. This teaching shows us how we get caught in the cycle of suffering, and how it is possible to free ourselves. When we’re not aware of this process, we are blinded by our ignorance and get caught in craving again and again. We create different identities that we cling to, and that limit our ability to be free in the moment. When we’re aware of this process, we can make wiser choices about how to respond, and perhaps even break the cycles of becoming altogether. This talk gives a brief overview of the 12 links of Dependent Origination, and then describes how it works on a practical, moment-to-moment basis in our lives.
