2010-12-31 To Trust In Being 56:01
Discovering how to rest in being requires us to examine the compulsive doing activity through which we seek to establish our worthiness and identity. Trusting where we are, we can come to rest in the wide-open nature of aliveness.

2010-11-17 Investigation, Noble Uncertainty, Spiritual Inquiry 56:51
The awakening factor of investigation moves us to look deeply into our experience, acknowledging that there is always more to understand in the simplicity and mystery of being alive here and now. As we learn to bring a deep and open-hearted curiousity to our each moment and to our very existence itself, without taking any position on our self or this world, life can open to reveal the deepest truth of freedom.

2010-11-11 Goodness and Joy : Uplifting the Heart 53:34
Spiritual practice rests on a deep trust in the fundamental wholesomeness of our hearts seeking for happiness. We can learn to honour the goodness of our core motivation, even as we recognise our need to deepen the skill and wisdom with which we pursue genuine wellbeing. This includes recognising the importance of connecting with that which brings joy to our heart as part of our spiritual practice, and honouring our own wholsesome qualities and actions.

2010-11-03 Inspiration and Ardency 34:52
Connecting with whatever inspires us is an essential part of practice and supports a sense of heartfelt purpose and energy in meditation, expressed as ardency. Rather than 'effort-ing' in practice, born of a sense of obligation or fear, the quality of ardency through which we are moved to engage with our spiritual journey wholeheartedly, is born out of energised love and a clear commitment to what we value and hold as most important in life.

2010-10-29 The Heart of Dharma 52:52
In our hearts we all long to be released from the ongoing suffering inherent in unsuccessfully seeking satisfaction through sensory experience. The liberating heart of dharma is revealed when we come to rest in the realisation that what we are looking for has been right here all along.
