What I most love in my teaching practice is seeing students become dedicated to their own liberation. As their spiritual practice matures, people light up from within when they begin to understand that personal freedom is possible. This commitment to freedom on the part of the student inspires me to find ways to express my deepest understanding and enthusiasm for liberation.

2012-02-25 Mindfulness and Full Awareness 62:00
This talk explores the Buddha's teaching on Clear Comprehension also called Full Awareness. The commitment to see our motivation in our mind, moment by moment, without glossing over, leads to happiness and purification. By clarifying our greater aspiration we create a mindful container to see our habitual thinking arise without acting upon it and the result is living of life of non-harming.

2012-02-04 Awareness and Wisdom 56:16
Wisdom arises naturally when there is a steady momentum of "pure" awareness. That is, when the mind is not colored by views based in greed, aversion or bewilderment. Learning to recognize and trust this natural process is a keystone of the practice.

2011-11-24 Anatta: Investigating the Misperception of Self 57:59
As has been said, the self is a ghost that appears to exist only because it is not investigated. In this talk we explore some of the ways that we perceive experience inaccurately and create a view of lasting self. We also mention the advice of Achaan Buddhadasa to generate a contentment with emptiness.
