2023-12-27 Meditation: Opening to the Mystery 16:46
Tara Brach
This guided meditation includes a body scan and invites the receptivity and letting-go of whole body breathing. Once we have awakened the vitality and presence throughout the body, we have access to the formless dimension, the awareness that is our source. The meditation closes with “Walk Slowly”, from the poetry of Danna Faulds.

2023-12-27 The Sacred Pause 54:54
Tara Brach
When we are lost in the trance of doing, our lives are on automatic, and contracted by sense that something’s wrong or missing. This talk explores the challenges of learning to pause, and the blessings that arise when we step out of our incessant mental and physical activity and reconnect with the being-qualities of presence, wisdom and love (a favorite from the archives). “The deepest expression of love is this non-doing presence because that’s when we are inhabiting who we really are.”

2023-12-23 May All Beings Be Happy? 1:24:59
Nathan Glyde
Exploring what it means to wish for all beings to be happy. Looking at a couple of ways we compromise on the fullness of 'all', or limit our understanding of where happiness comes from and depends upon; Bringing head and heart together à la Thānissaro Bhikku, we can find a new drive to wish lasting blameless happiness for all beings, now, gone, and yet to come.

2023-12-22 The Light Inside the Darkness: A Winter Solstice Reflection 56:55
James Baraz
This Thursday our meeting will take place just as we arrive at this year's Winter Solstice (7:27pm Pacific Time). This longest night of the year has given rise to many holidays of light (Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Soyal, the winter solstice celebration of the Hopi Indians, and many others). We will explore accessing the light within as we experience the solstice and navigate the shadow within us and in the world.
