  James Baraz
2020-02-21 Streaming vs Clinging (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 62:27
  Tempel Smith
We are in an ever changing universe, yet conventionally don't understand this. Mindfulness brings us so much intimacy with things as they truly are that we wake up to this streaming nature. We have to let go of old habits of clinging to align with the stream we are in.
2020-02-22 Inner Beauty and the Two Guardians of the World (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 60:36
  Kamala Masters
In the Dharma, it is said that there are Two Guardians of the world. They are actually inner guardians, or attitudes of mind, that support non-harming in our speech and behavior. This is a powerful cause for liberation to mature, resulting in a beautiful mind/heart.
2020-02-23 You Are Loving Awareness (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 63:27
  James Baraz
Mindful awareness creates spaciousness for love to naturally shine through -- your true nature. The talk includes reminisces of Ram Dass, major benefactor of the insight meditation community, who passed away Dec. 2019 and whose practice was "I am loving awareness."
2020-02-24 Everything Leans (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 58:12

2020-02-25 Wise Intention (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 53:49

This talk emphasizes Wise Intention in the context of a long retreat: Wise Intention includes the three aspects of renunciation (letting go of the sense desire), loving kindness and compassion.

  Beth Sternlieb
