After decades of practice and teaching, what inspires me are those moments when I can see the habitual as if it were for the first time. If such moments occur while I'm giving a talk, then the teacher in me can hear its own words imbued with the freshness imparted by those who truly listen -- the multiple aspects of myself being part of the audience as well. Thanks for your participation in the process.

2014-06-01 Seeing The World In Its Integrity 33:00
We habitually see the world dislocated into fragments, ignoring that all its aspects are profoundly intertwined. Let's see it all of one piece. Let's join the world.

2014-05-31 Divesting Of Me 31:39
This talk is a sequel of the previous one ("Searching For Me"). It invites us to forget our own press-releases, and to empty the screen of our mind.

2014-05-30 Searching For Me 31:43
We spend much effort trying to define who we are. At times we even use our DNA for that. This search brings only suffering. Let's drop it.

2013-10-27 Craving For Identity 32:19
We have come to believe that life is about fabricating an identity for ourselves. Yet this brings us much suffering. Only by dropping this obsession for self-identity can we create a space where the many facets of ourselves can unfold.

2013-10-26 Craving For Ownership 40:35
The habitual way to secure predictable outcomes is through ownership. When this way prevails, we disconnect from the path of love.

2013-10-25 Craving For Certitude 36:17
We tend to orchestrate our lives so as to secure predictable outcomes. As a result we end up enclosed in artificial scenarios. The alternative, which sets us free, is to trust the unknown.

2013-04-21 Emptying Hand in Hand 28:43
Our mind often functions in a shared space. In that case it is not sufficient to empty the individual mind, but we need to find ways to extend the clearing to the collective mind as well.

2013-04-20 The View From an Empty Mind 34:29
When we have emptied our mind of its clutter we can see not only things as they are, but also the underlying vastness.

2013-04-19 Constructions Taking Over the Mind 32:01
There is much stuff that burdens - "pre-occupies" - our mind, and most of it has to do with the construction of who we think we are.

2012-10-21 Empowering the Inner Teacher 43:34
The primary role of the outer teacher is to empower the inner one. And in order to let this empowerment in, we need to drop our shields and embrace freedom.
