2011-05-01 Letting go of Disturbance, Deepening Stillness 60:07
To deepen our meditation practice we need to work skillfully with whatever is a disturbance -- whether it's the gross forms of the hindrances, or the subtlest manifestations of restlessness. This subtle restlessness often comes from a primal anxiety. We need to recognize this and find the stillness in our experience. Then we can truly be with things as they are.

2011-01-03 Mindfulness When It Matters 61:40
Rather than making New Year’s resolutions that often end in a sense of failure, it is more helpful to look at our life and practice in terms of aspirations, and to ask what do we need to cultivate and what can we let go of in order to support those aspirations? Using mindfulness, we can become more in tune with what really matters to us and also begin to notice the many subtle and even unconscious influences on our choices and behavior.
