Marcia Rose's Dharma Talks

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.

2007-02-16 Mindfulness And Transformation Of Emotional States 1:15:39
The Buddha offers us a recipe for cultivating a strong and clear mindful attention that's grounded in kindness and patience that meets the experience of the moment and sees it clearly, just as it is. We can learn to experience afflictive emotions without getting caught up or swept away and overcome by them. It's as though we learn to see them so clearly, that we see through them, just like we see through the colors of a rainbow.

2007-02-23 Through The Looking Glass-The Reality Of No-Self 61:54
Can we look into the clear mirror of the dhamma? Can we face the "looking glass" with a willingness and humility and keep looking into this mirror of our 'self' without interpretation or judgement? It is only then that we begin to see and know the impersonality of presently arisen thoughts, censations,feelings and states of mind. Can we keep looking until we begin to experience and know that it's not all about "me" and teach the heart/the mind of freedom.

2005-02-26 Just As It Is: Stepping Into The Territory Of Truth 53:34
Can we relinquish our preference of picking and choosing? Can we be with pheonomena...whatever it is, just as it is? Can we begin to see and realize the true nature of things in 'every kind of birth'? Can we wander into the natural state of the equipoise of an undisturbed mind?

2006-01-23 Transformation Of Emotional States 1:17:04
Seeing clearly, seeing the true nature of things through the rainbow of ones emotional states--A doorway to liberation.

2006-01-25 Impermanence -The Gateway To Liberation 1:12:40
Every thing changes...the only thing that we can know for sure... the only thing that we can 'hold on to' is the truth. Direct experience of impermanence is the gateway to liberation.

2003-09-15 Investigation As A Factor Of Enlightenment 56:27
The Buddha's invitation to us is "to come and see" for ourselves what is true. Investigation is the "activity" of mindfulness. It's the activity of discernment. It illuminates the object. When things are brightly lit, what is already present is then clearly seen and known, and confusion is dissipated. "EHI PASSIKA" "Some and See" investigation is the active aspect of mindfulness. It brings a clear discernment of our body-mind experience. Investigation is what lights up the truth for us.

2005-02-12 Equanimity-Equipoise Of Body, Heart And Mind - The Seventh Enlightenment Factor 66:15
'Looking on' evenly with balance at whatever occurs within us and around us is the great heart of equanimity. As insight unfolds and deepens, equanimity grows.

2004-10-04 Why Metta? 55:31
Exploring through stories--old and new--the unifying energy of metta, this most subtle and powerful energy. Why and how is the capacity for an unfettered unconditional connection in relationship to ourselves and others essentially necessary for our dharma practice and in the whole of our life? A question with many obvious answers and some surprising answers that show up as our practice unfolds...a talk telling of exemplary stories.

1996-05-21 Rupa Lila/ Meditative Movement 1:35:13
a gently guided series of simple stretches and movements; exploring, experiencing and abiding in the 1st Foundation of Mindfulness--the body. We 'wake up' through a deepening mindful relationship to the body, growing in acceptance, clarity, spaciousness, and equanimity, with penetrating insight into the truth of ourselves.
