Dharma Talks
2010-02-12 No Mind 1:16:51
  Rob Burbea
Please note that these talks are from a 4 week retreat for experienced meditators. The talks and meditations can be listened to in any order or individually, but as they progressively unfold different levels of understanding of Emptiness, they will probably be more fully understood and the practices more easily developed if taken in series.

  Lila Kate Wheeler
Mystery and the mechanics of metta - scientific basis for innate goodness and connection of all things.

2010-02-11 Agendas and Judgments 40:33
  Winnie Nazarko
Human beings seek to control their experiences in order to be happy. But when we approach meditation practice with a fixed agenda, we miss the mark. Freedom and liberation comes from learning to harmonize with reality, not in trying to impose our preferences upon it.

2010-02-11 The Lion's Roar 54:49
  James Baraz
In Tibetan teachings the Lion's Roar is the "fearless proclamation that every situation is workable." Being humbled can lead to a profound, wise humility, doubt can lead to strong confidence and vulnerability and can be the path to fearlessness.

James presented another version of this talk at the February 2010 month-long retreat at Spirit Rock.

2010-02-10 The Wandering Mind 61:48

One of the patterns we meet in meditation, over and over again, is the wandering mind. Exploring this pattern without judgment, we can come to deep understanding about the nature of our minds.
