2024-01-04 Your Heart Was Made For This 55:30
Oren Jay Sofer, James Baraz
Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed an uplifting transition to 2024. I'm delighted to invite you to join me in welcoming author and Dharma teacher Oren Jay Sofer for an evening of online practice and exploration based on his new book, Your Heart Was Made For This: Contemplative Practices to Meet a World in Crisis with Courage, Integrity, and Love. What does the contemplative path have to offer our aching hearts in a rapidly changing world beset with challenge? What can our practice offer beyond personal benefits?

2024-01-03 Meditation: Energy and Source 19:10
Tara Brach
Our incessant thinking removes us from the full aliveness, vastness and mystery of Being. This guided practice helps us inhabit our energetic forms, and rest in the vast, formless stillness that gives rise to this ever creative living world.

2024-01-03 Coming Home to True Refuge 59:31
Tara Brach
While we habitually try to control our life, our true refuge—the source of peace, safety and freedom—is in the direct realization of reality itself. This talk explores three archetypal portals to true refuge—awareness (buddha), truth (dharma) and love (sangha.) With each we practice short reflections that help bring the particular gateway to refuge alive.

Ajahn Sucitto
Q1 Can you expand on your ideas about effort and energy? Does the same standard of 70-75% apply to normal life? 12:09 Q2 I find it difficult to still well with eyes half open. 15:55 Q3 Can you give advice on sense restraint please? 31:54 Q4 How should one guide the mind from over indulging in socializing? 39:23 Q5 I saw the 5 khandas / aggregates dissolve when I was sitting at home, not meditating. It was disorienting and seeing I had no identity was scary. What is your advice when I feel anxious during this experience? 49:58 Q6 Cittas arise all over us. What is it that that observes the cittas?
