2021-10-06 The Seven Factors of Awakening 68:45
Donald Rothberg
After a brief review of the last two sessions that Donald has offered on traditional teachings about awakening and contemporary maps of the path of awakening, we explore the core teaching of the Seven Factors of Awakening: mindfulness, investigation, resolve or energy, joy or rapture, tranquility, concentration, and equanimity. We look both individually at each of the seven, and also suggest a number of ways of practicing with this teaching, whether in a particular meditation session, in daily life, or over a sustained period of time. At the end, there is some discussion.

2021-10-06 Gathering allies for liberation 52:03
Ajahn Sucitto
As we practice, there can be an urge to get out of this world. Rather than follow that instinct, find a way to move through the world in a way that’s harmonious. By being heedful, lifting attention, disengaging and seeing the world clearly, there is the possibility to act rather than get swept up. The 5 indriya are our allies, protecting the heart as we put the teachings into practice in our lives.

2021-10-06 Dankbarkeit 45:28
Renate Seifarth
Wenn wir Metta für unsere Wohltäter üben, spüren wir eine große Dankbarkeit aufsteigen, die uns füllt und nährt. Eine kurze Reflexion während des Tages, was wir alles Schönes erfahren haben, führt uns den täglichen Reichtum vor Augen. Das braucht ein innehalten und Vieles nicht für selbstverständlich nehmen.

2021-10-06 Realizing Your Deepest Desires 51:26
Tara Brach
This talk differentiates between egoic intentions (driven by wants and fears), and our true aspiration (deepest desires) to manifest our full potential for awake awareness and love. We explore ways to realize and open to our deepest desires when we are stuck in self-promotion, grasping and conflict, so that our aspiration becomes a compass of the heart that can guide us in living with wisdom and compassion.

2021-10-06 Meditation: Letting Thought Clouds Come and Go 22:00
Tara Brach
This meditation guides us through a body scan and into a relaxed, open presence. When we realize we are lost in a thought cloud, our practice is to relax open, listening to and feeling the life of the present moment. We are training to become increasingly aware of the gap between thoughts, the space where the light of awareness shines through.

2021-10-07 Emptiness and the Big Perspective 50:29
James Baraz
The Heart Sutra teaching famously states: "Form is Emptiness Emptiness is Form." This liberating perspective is the gateway to understanding the inter-connectedness of all phenomena and the spaciousness and freedom that comes from seeing our place in the bigger scheme of things. The talk includes a recording of Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweikart's moving account of the profound shift he experienced upon seeing the Earth from outer space.
