2020-10-11 Walking Meditation – Soothing Tension 12:45

2020-10-11 Recollecting Faith 15:02
  Ajahn Sucitto
We use embodiment as a holding frame to bring heart and mind together. Energy is the meeting point. Recollect your faith – why you do this practice – to uplift and fortify energy. This provides some ballast from being knocked around by the world.

2020-10-11 Mettā Samādhi or Samādhi Mettā 55:38
  Nathan Glyde
Exploring what happens when we offer mettā phrases that resonate with and radiate the felt sense of samādhi. Apologies: there are a lot of environmental noises from the sonic-cityscape I sat in to offer this online session. Hopefully the inimitable delight of Dharma overcomes the occasional annoyance of a horn, alarm, or call of a city dwellers.

2020-10-11 Awakening in a Time of Crisis 65:21
  Donald Rothberg
What does our practice look like at a time of multiple crises? We explore the great contemporary need for many of us to deepen in our path of awakening, and deepen in or sustain our ways of responding to the needs of our world. We look at the nature of awakening, both in its traditional and contemporary forms, and ask: How might I bring my practice of awakening up a notch or two? We look at how we can integrate this awakening process with our responsive action, pointing to what we might call a contemporary curriculum for those integrating inner and outer transformation. Following the talk, we have a discussion covering many aspects of our theme of awakening in a time of crisis.

2020-10-11 Energy of Sharing 21:55
  Ajahn Sucitto
A shift in energy affords an opportunity to reform in accordance with Dhamma rather than personal history. The power of love is an energy we can be formed in, and the more widely it’s shared out, the richer and grander we become.
