2015-01-05 Classical Teaching on Non-Self 51:40
Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
The Buddha never denied or affirmed the existence of a self. He merely noted that when we relate to the body, feeling, perception, formations and consciousness with attachment, we suffer. Non-identification with the body and mind frees us.
2015-01-12 Deconstructing the Layers of Self-View 57:43
Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
This talk includes real practice stories about working with the hindrances and seeing how we deconstruct the layers of self-view.
2015-01-19 Rethinking How We Get Free 52:06
Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
This talk examines popular strategies for behavior change such as willing ourselves into compliance and analyzing our history. And it contrasts these "old ways" with the strategies of Buddhist practices.
2015-01-26 Self-view and the Fourth Satipatthana 58:57
Gloria Taraniya Ambrosia
Here we look at fourth satipatthana and its specific instructions on what to see and how to see it—the five hindrances, the five aggregates, the six sense bases, the seven factors of awakening, and the four noble truths—with an eye to realizing how this practice helps us overcome self-view.
