2023-09-10 Fundamental Attribution Delusion 1:30:44
Nathan Glyde
At the core of the teachings, we have avidya: the fundamental point that we do not see things as they are. Our perception is not reality, it can be changed by how we look, where we look, and with what underlying principle concepts we look through. Let's bring in a few cognitive ideas into our Dharma approach. In particular, how 'fundamental attribution error(s)' are reinforced by 'naïve realism' to generate a self-world view that promotes impossible happiness claims. A recording of the meditation, Dharma reflections, and answers (only) to questions and reflections from participants (to preserve their privacy).

2023-09-13 Meditation: Everything Belongs 20:08
Tara Brach
This guided meditation awakens an embodied presence through a body scan, and invites us to rest in the breath, while allowing the different waves of sensations, feelings and sounds to come and go. When difficult experiences arise, we breathe with them, feeling them fully and mentally whispering, “this belongs,” or “this too.” By not resisting, we discover the sea of awareness that has room for all the waves.
