2022-10-05 Das Wesen von Samadhi und die Kraft der Dankbarkeit 43:25
Renate Seifarth
Die Metta Praxis zielen auf die Entwicklung von tiefer Konzentration, Samadhi, und die Entwicklung einer wohlwollenden Grundhaltung. Es geht darum, wie dieses samadhi entsteht, wie es sich äußert, was die Faktoren sind. Da gerade mit der Wohltäter-Kategorie geübt wird, geht es am Ende um Dankbarkeit, die gerade hier auftauchen kann und zugleich eine sehr heilsame Wirkung auf uns hat.

2022-10-05 Ten Ways of Practicing with Reactivity 68:23
Donald Rothberg
We start with a brief review of the last three Wednesday sessions on "Dukkha and the End of Dukkha," including briefly summarizing the teachings of "The Two Arrows" and "Dependent Origination" (going from pleasant/unpleasant to grasping/pushing away); grasping and pushing away are interpreted as the most important meaning of dukkha as reactivity. Then there is an acknowledgment of Yom Kippur occurring on this day and its relationship to our practice. The core of the talk is exploring ten fundamental ways of practicing with reactivity (a pdf of the ten ways will be posted linked with the talk). The talk is followed by discussion.

2022-10-05 Guided Meditation Exploring Ways of Practicing with Reactivity 38:26
Donald Rothberg
After some brief initial instructions in posture, setting intentions, cultivating stability of mind, and basic mindfulness, there is a period of settling, followed by brief instructions on being mindful of any moments of reactivity, and then, some time later, on being mindful of any moderate or greater (while still workable) moments of pleasant or unpleasant experiences, noticing any tendencies to move from pleasant to craving and grasping (one form of reactivity), and to move from unpleasant to not wanting to pushing away in some way (the other main form of reactivity).
