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).

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 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 The Liberating Power of Conscious Intention – Part 2 50:14
Tara Brach
While we can’t change our past, we have the capacity in this moment to remember our deepest intention and seed the future. Intention can become the compass of our heart, guiding and creating our life experience. In these two talks we explore how we awaken mindfulness of intention and how, when we are caught in habits that create suffering, we can find our way home to the deep intention that heals and frees us. The two talks include reflections and practices that can bring the power of intention alive in your life.

Tara Brach
This meditation awakens our senses and then guides us to rest in the changing flow of experience. When the mind drifts, we are invited to relax back into full living presence, into that Beingness that is the center of now.
