2020-03-11 Letting Go - Release - Freedom (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 60:35
  Eugene Cash
Satipatthana - Four Foundations of Mindfulness offers us specific meditation practices with the body, breath, in four postures, in all activities, with the elements, with death, vedana, the heart/mind and the dharmas including hindrances and the seven factors of awakenings. Each of these practices includes a through line: One abides independent, not clinging to anything in the world. The not clinging to body, heart, mind or any experience is both the foundation of the Buddha's teaching and the doorway to freedom. It's the experience of coming into alignment with ' he way things are.'

2020-03-11 Desire and Addiction (Part 2 of 3): Voices of Longing Calling You Home 41:30
  Tara Brach
As part of the collective response to the Coronavirus—taking care of each other—Tara has cancelled her live class and recorded this from her home. Desire is intrinsic to all living forms – the urge to exist and flourish. It turns to suffering when, due to unmet needs, it contracts, intensifies and separates us from our full aliveness and awareness. These two talks guide us in awakening from this trance, and discovering how within desire is the longing that can carry us to true belonging.
