2019-02-20 Meditation: Listening to Life 18:53
  Tara Brach
The attitude of meditation is one of engaged listening – a relaxed, receptive yet intimate attention. This meditation explores how we can listen to sounds, listen to and feel sensations, and then relax back into the ocean of awareness that includes and perceives the changing waves. In this relaxing back, we realize the peace and freedom of inhabiting our wholeness and essence (a favorite from the archives).

2019-02-13 Spiritual Reparenting 52:29
  Tara Brach
When we are not sufficiently nurtured in childhood, we are inclined toward anxiety, depression, addiction and other forms of suffering. In a deep way, we do not feel at home with others. We are disconnected from our own body, heart and spirit. This talk explores how meditation offers “spiritual reparenting” as we learn to bring interest, understanding and love to our own inner vulnerability. This process of healing extends to our relationships with others and our larger society – by reaching out to widening circles with interest and care, we bring increasing harmony and peace to our world (a favorite from the archives). “That question: Where does it hurt? We need to address it to everyone, if we really want to understand each other.” Ruby Sales

2019-02-20 Seven Stages of the Spiritual Jouney 63:40
  Donald Rothberg
Partly in honor of the recently deceased poet, Mary Oliver, we use her poem, "the Journey" as a reference point for understanding the nature of the spiritual journey. Two other reference points are the life of the Buddha, and then the experiences of our own lives. After an exploration of the very nature of a journey, and how a journey may take years, or two weeks, or an hour, we explore seven stages of the seven stages of the spiritual journey, starting with the taking life for granted, being caught up in habitual and conditioned mind and behavior, and ending with (some degree of) awakening and then re-entering the "ordinary" world, often bringing gifts from the journey. In between is the heart of the journey.
