2017-10-11 Balance of Mind - staying in the saddle. 58:45
How can we not become reactive in the thick of difficult states of mind, events, relationships and situations that unfold in life?

We learn to sit steady in the saddle in the midst of life's ups and downs.

2016-11-06 A "self"/"no self" discussion 58:13
