Ayya Anandabodhi
Sometimes we get caught up in things that are better left alone, creating unnecessary stress. Other times, our stresses can be part of the natural process of growth.

2024-04-21 A Ray of the Absolute 22:20
Ayya Medhanandi
Just as the sun is eclipsed by the moon passing over it, so the mind is submerged in 'totality' due to the veil of our human conditioning. But we can shatter that darkness by diving deeply with moral vigilance and wise attention into the silence of the mind. There we know suffering, how it begins and the exhilarating joy of witnessing its end in the vastness of the heart's inner dimensions. With unshakeable faith, insight, and understanding, we abide in that sacred space of pure awareness and unconditional love – like the sun freed from the shadow of the moon.

Gavin Milne
Relaxing into practice, taking care of the causes of awakening and freedom. To support this - refreshing wise attitude, keeping Yoniso manasikāra simple, and seeing the eight worldly winds. Embracing the first three factors of awakening, as the ones we always have some agency in. Linking them to connecting with the vertical. Relating to the next four factors, more as results of the first three - qualities of our depth. Guided meditation, exploring experience through the senses, and how things build from the raw sense contact. The imminence of all experience through the senses, and becoming curious about the feeling tone of all sense contact. Including feeling the experience of craving and aversion, as the 'suffering that leads to the end of suffering'. Embracing continuity of practice. Including the ways in which we lose our way - and taking ourselves less personally.

2024-04-20 Talk - Turning Towards the Timeless 54:16
Gavin Milne
The inward turning - parallels across tradition, a natural maturation. Exploring a vertical and horizontal perspective on awakening, and how these trajectories interact. Disentangling from Samsara. Connecting with the vertical - attention, the ground of awareness, and inner peace. Normalising common challenges encountered. The value of beginning again, and infusing the body with wise mindfulness.
