2017-02-26 Free to be Human - Sunday PM Guided Meditation 29:59
Teachings of liberation can seem to point to a kind of superhuman perfection, one reinforced by classical images and stories of Buddha and other semi-mythical historical saints. This can make our own freedom of being seem unattainable or at least far distant, yet Dharma teachings and practices emphasize immediate experience as the ground of liberation. This day/weekend will look at our human freedom as very near to hand, and will explore how to contemplate and integrate the liberating possibilities of our practice in the midst of our everyday lives.

2016-06-21 The The 3 Facets of Practice, in Meditation and in Life 45:38
This talk was given on the Summer solstice, and the teachings were held outside under the large Plane tree in the Gaia House gardens. Martin explores 3 facets of awareness practice, seeing how they can be applied in any moment, both within the formality of meditation and moment by moment in our wider lives. The 3 are Embodied Presence, Exploration and Inquiry, and Openness to the Nature of experience.

2016-06-20 The Ambiguity of Self and World 37:04
We rely on a sense of certainty and familiarity with how things are, yet when we look closely our experience is uncertain and always presenting anew. Martin looks at the big reference points for our experience; Life, Death, Self and World, pointing to a liberating way of understanding and relating to them that is free of the narrowness of certainty.
