2011-06-28 Being Part of it All 61:19
Meditation practice invites us to see that we are an inseparable part of the vast web of life, despite the appearance of our separate individuality. This realisation opens our heart to a sense of deep inner connection, and enables us to live in harmony and at peace with the way things are.

2011-06-27 Living in Rental Accomodation - The Reality of Impermanence 61:30
All conditioned things turn out to be unreliable and subject to change. Recognising and accepting the truth of impermanence and the insecurity of our fluid existence allows us to let go of holding and resistance, and release our limited sense of self into the flow of life.

2011-06-25 Meeting the Challenges - Working with the Hindrances in Meditation 62:53
A reflection on how to work with the challenges we all encounter in meditation. Craving, aversion, sleepiness, restlessness, and sceptical doubt are challenging but temporary visitors which obscure our deeper truth. By recognising them as such and learning to work skillfully with them we can free ourselves from their grip, revealing the natural purity and radiance of our heart and mind.

This talk also includes Helen Stephenson. Meditation and yoga are natural partners in the spiritual life. This talk introduces a retreat that draws on the Buddh's teachings of mindfulness and awakening, and the yoga teachings of Patanjali, combining the practices of Hatha Yoga and Insight Meditation. The yoga on this retreat is offered as a spiritual path rather than simply an exercise system.
