2009-05-21 Realizing the Nature of Mind 63:55
Through practice we can glimpse a sense of the nature of awareness as something ever present and awesomely vast, and this sense can be cultivated as a profound resource for freedom and peace in our lives. But eventually we must see even beyond this to know the ultimate nature of the mind - empty, completely groundless, and dependently-arisen - a seeing which brings an even deeper freedom. This talk explores some of the ways this realization might be encouraged and developed in meditation.

2009-05-15 No Self, No World 63:22
Anatta (‘not-self’, or ‘no-self’) is one of the Buddha’s most subtle and profound teachings, and a full understanding of it involves seeing how not only the personal self, but also the entire world of experience, is empty of any intrinsic essence or existence. This talk explores some of the possible ways a meditator might work in practice to develop and strengthen such radical and liberating insights.

2009-05-09 Into the depths of Silence 59:18
Listening to silence in our lives, opening to its embrace, reveals a profound and immense power to transform the heart. Deepening in the stillness of meditation, our practice involves mindfulness of all ‘objects’, but must eventually also go beyond objects to realize a truly boundless freedom – of being nothing and having nothing.

Please note that these talks are from a 4 week retreat for experienced meditators. The talks and meditations can be listened to in any order or individually, but as they progressively unfold different levels of understanding of Emptiness, they will probably be more fully understood and the practices more easily developed if taken in series
