2024-03-29 Dhamma practice shapes the Citta into a more fulfilling state 47:35
Ajahn Sucitto
The emphasis on virtue, beyond keeping rules, customs and procedures, is to bring about harmony. It enables us to establish a fluent relationship that isn’t domineering nor indifferent, clearing of heart from destructive tendencies. It’s the tonality of careful attention in what we do. Not seeking results, but just bringing forth harmony, beauty, purity in our daily lives. (Sutta reference SN 46:1)

2024-03-28 Die zweite Wahrheit des Buddha erkennen 41:00
Renate Seifarth
Die Ursache von dukkha wird in tanha gesehen, Sinnenlust, Daseinsbegehren und Selbstvernichtungsbegehren. Meist wird dies vor dem Hintergrund der Wiedergeburtslehre besprochen, eine Frage, die hier offen gelassen wird. Dennoch Begehren entsteht bedingt in Abhängigkeit mit entsprechenden Objekten und Bewusstseinen und enthüllt die Wahrheit von Anatta

2024-03-28 Development without Becoming 49:57
Ajahn Sucitto
Our general mode follows a track called becoming. It’s a track that keeps moving, flavoured with craving that never arrives at satisfaction. The Buddha presented a more natural way – step-by-step, chart the course, with friendliness and purity of intention. Mindfulness of body and contemplative thought (vitaka-vicara) support a wider, wholistic mode. Use the process to adjust your world, so you’re not driven and pushed by it.

2024-03-27 An Invitation to Freedom: A conversation between Tara and Connirae Andreas 1:16:28
Tara Brach
An Invitation to Freedom: A conversation between Tara and Connirae Andreas: Connirae Andreas was one of the first trainers in neurolinguistic programming (NLP). She developed and wrote a book on the Core Transformation Process, and more recently, the Wholeness Process. Her new book, The Wholeness Work Essential Guide: Level I—Healing and Awakening is the focus of our conversation. Connirae’s teachings and practices are deep and impactful. She is gifted in communicating and guiding our inner unfolding in a way that makes accessible the domains of deep awakening and freedom pointed to by great mystics, poets and teachers over the centuries. And as this conversation reveals, the Wholeness Work can be transformational for new and seasoned meditators alike. Learn more about Connirae Andreas and The Wholeness Work here.

2024-03-27 Meditation: Widening Rings of Being – Awakening the Senses 20:01
Tara Brach
If we can recognize thoughts as thoughts, it becomes possible to open from virtual to living reality. This meditation guides us in awakening the senses and discovering the freedom – the awake space of Being that is beyond the confines of thoughts. “Relaxing back into the space between thoughts. Relaxing with what’s right here…” The poet Rumi writes, “Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought. Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking, live in silence, flow down and down in always widening rings of being.”
