2023-06-12 The Five Spiritual Faculties (week 1 of 8) - Talk & Meditation 1:24:50
Mark Nunberg
This course examines the Buddha’s teachings on the five spiritual faculties of confidence, energy, mindful awareness, stability of awareness, and wisdom. It is the development and balancing of these five faculties that provide the force that moves the mind from faith to wisdom and release.

Sayadaw Vivekananda
Sayadaw discusses the gradual nature of the development of wisdom, beginning with a description of physical and mental "symptoms" which can coincide with specific stages of knowledge. Wisdom unfolds gradually and systematically. When conditions are complete, then realization occurs suddenly.

2023-06-14 Guided Meditation Related to Several Ways of Deepening Daily Life Practice 36:38
Donald Rothberg
We work with several modes of practice which can be developed in formal practice as well as in daily life (and that are discussed in the talk and discussion following this guided meditation). After a period of grounding in the body, we work with a heart practice (such as lovingkindness), a specific teaching (practicing with the sequence from contact to the feeling-tone of pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral, to wanting, and to grasping from the teaching of Dependent Origination is briefly given), and a "mixing" or "mingling" of formal meditation and a daily life activity.

2023-06-14 Deepening Daily Life Practice: Eight Ways 62:15
Donald Rothberg
We start with an emphasis on the importance of daily life practice, and on some of the ways that it is sometimes seen as secondary in insight meditation, when we center formal practice and retreats. We then explore eight different ways to deepen daily life practice, inviting the listener to see which one or two ways most resonate as part of one's "next steps" in deepening daily life practice. The talk is followed by a period of reflection and then by discussion.
