2009-01-08 Wisdom Sustains Equanimity - Equanimity Sustains Wisdom 63:09
  Sylvia Boorstein
This talk, filled with contemporary stories as well as traditional accounts of the Buddha's enlightenment, makes the connection between wisdom and equanimity - and shows how lovingkindness, compassion, and appreciation are permutations of equanimity in situations that are neutral, unpleasant (troubling) and excitingly pleasant.

2009-01-07 We Need Metta To Do Metta 53:13

2009-01-07 The Three Refuges 1:26:33
  Tara Brach
The spiritual path can be understood as forgetting and remembering. We suffer when we lose sight of truth, of love, of awareness. And we touch freedom in the moments of remembering. This talk includes guided reflections on three gateways to remembering: three refuges--buddha, dharma and sangha--that are the foundation of classical Buddhist teachings and profoundly relevant in our contemporary lives.

2009-01-06 How Metta Works Through Us 66:12
  Donald Rothberg
Metta works, partly in a clear way, partly mysteriously, to help us lead with our hearts, develop deeper concentration, unergo an often challenging process of purification and touch the depths of our being. As we practice, we work through a number of challenges - distraction, sleepiness, the restless mind and body, and the near and far enemies of metta - attached love and ill-will for enemies, particularly harsh judgment of self and others.
