Working With Thought
This talk reviews how "thought" fits into meditation practice. It also examines why it is skillful to learn to practice with thought, and not attempt to cut it off completely
The practice of contentment
This talk points to some of the ways we can cultivate a contentment that is not reliant on sense pleasure.

Working with difficult emotions
This talk encourages us to practice meeting difficult emotions with wisdom and compassion.
Forgiveness: An Exploration of Letting Go
Five Topics for Frequent Recollection
This talk invites us to reflect on our mortality, the inevitability of loss and the consequences of our intentional actions in ways that help free the mind from clinging, craving and ignorance.
