2017-01-24 Becoming Mindful of the Mind (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 64:37
After we begin to establish mindfulness of the breath and body, the next place to develop our practice is mind objects and the mind itself. Mind objects are the stream of thoughts and inner dialogue and for the mind we can observe emotions and mental states.

2017-01-23 Beginning Meditation Instruction (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 66:09
On the first morning of retreat we guide our bodies to be still and relaxed as a base for the mind to settle. We can use sounds, body sensations and the breath to gather our attention and start the training not to be lost in thought.
