2019-03-18 Practicing to Investigate Anatta (Not-Self) (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 60:24
  Donald Rothberg
After a brief overview of the “three ways of seeing that liberate” (into anicca, dukkha, and anatta, or impermanence, reactivity or suffering, and not-self), and how to practice investigating anicca and dukkha, we explore a practical way to understand and investigate anatta or not-self. We focus on two ways of investigation: (1) noticing when the sense of self is “thick,” and studying it; and (2) learning in a number of ways to be with the flow of experience with less or little or no sense of self, as we “thin” the self.

  Oren Jay Sofer
For the practice to be effective we must integrate the proper understanding, known as "Right View."

2019-03-13 Meditation: Entering Heartspace with the “Smile-Down” 18:28
  Tara Brach
The practice of visualizing and feeling a smile spreading through the body helps us access the natural tenderness and openness of our being.

  Tara Brach
This two part series explores how we regularly leave our body and skim life’s surface in a mental trance, and the ways we can train our attention to come home again.
