I find teaching to be a very deep and powerful "no self" practice. When I connect with others during Dharma talks--in the intimacy of small groups, and while holding meditation practice interviews--I am continually reminded to know, and be, in a place of clarity, spaciousness and immediate presence. Being able to offer students such a place of connection is my greatest pleasure and inspiration, as well as the most appreciated challenge in my teaching practice.

2012-10-30 Self, No Self and The Creative Process 46:14
Without a doubt there is an ancient and subconscious urge for creative life and inventiveness in every single one of us from our beginnings. Engaging in the creative process can be a wonderful vehicle towards freeing up honesty and authenticity... all of which helps create the conditions that allow direct revelation of insight into "the way of things"

2012-10-23 The Four Great Elements 59:10
How intimately and mindfully connected are you too these most basic and universal experiences?... This body in its elemental nature... A composite of the earth, water, Fire and air elements? This talk is an exploration of the Buddha's primary teaching and a guided meditation in conjunction with this teaching.

2012-10-16 The Liberating Embrace Of Anicca/Impermanence 1:18:12
The only thing that we can know for sure is the constancy of chance. It's the most basic fact of our existence. Realization of the truth of impermanence is a gateway out of feeling the separateness - the suffering of self-centered existence. We begin to understand that we are intimately woven into endlessly changing, reflective web of life.

2012-10-09 Transformation and Relinquishment of Afflictive States of Mind 1:18:42
The Buddha offers us the recipe of cultivating a strong and clear concentration, mindfulness and investigation rooted in kindness that allows us to learn to experience the extremes and the subtleties of difficult emotions without getting caught by them. It's as though we learn to see them so clearly that we see through them and see their nature, just like we see through the colors of a rainbow.

2010-10-29 Through The Looking Glass - The Reality Of Not-Self 1:10:40
This talk points out in a number of ways, that what is asked of us in practice is to simply recognize that everything we think of as 'our self', everything we believe to be 'our self'; everything we think of and believe to be other 'selves' simply just doesn't exist in any independent, permanent, unchanging, solid or substantial way.

2010-10-22 Kamma - Karma 58:43
Exploring kamma as a very accessible aspect of the Buddha's teaching... kamma as intention or motivation, which includes will, choice and decision... the mental impetus that leads to actions... both creative and destructive actions.

2010-10-15 Metta - The Heart's Release 65:43
This talk explores ways that Metta practice helps to release the contractions of the heart/mind and the tremendous fullness of energy which is constituted by confidence and strength and a clear straight forwardness that comes from a loving heart.
