2015-11-21 Why Do Beings Live In Hate? 29:37
Has there ever been a time when the world was not filled with fear and violence? Millenia ago just as now, humans have been bound in a cycle of delusion, fear, and harm. The way out is within us – learning to find the still-point in the mind, where fleeting conditions subside. Awake to the present, anxiety and clinging bow to an inner contentment and peace. We are on the Middle Way.

2015-11-20 Choice Medicine: Fearlessness, Peace & Moral Integrity 30:08
The real path to peace lies in developing moral integrity.  Our spiritual strength depends on purity of heart and action. We learn to identify unwholesome habits that obstruct our well-being and discover the joy of harmlessness. With courageous compassion, we walk the way of the noble ones to the summit of our human potential.

2015-10-11 On The Wings of the Breath 17:38
Using the breath to move into the silent space in the heart and attentively following its rhythm, the breath becomes our whole world. We let go of all objects that arise, all thought, as we stay present and aware in the simple current of breathing. In these moments of pure presence, we are planting the priceless seeds of our awakening.

2015-10-04 Softly Close the Gates 30:00
There is so much for us to understand. Preparing yourselves for that unfolding of wisdom, take your rightful seat in a balanced way and follow the path inward. Softly close off all the gates and give your full attention and energy to the mind's interior exploration – of itself. We are on a wondrous journey!

2015-08-20 Noble Search and Rescue 46:54
How can we stay true to our spiritual aspirations and work to fulfill them without compromise? Diligence in our practice is a great resource for growing the endurance, patience, and courage we will need to guard the mind against the hindrances and keep our focus on present moment awareness. This is the way to free ourselves from all suffering. And it is also a gift we can offer to help others through life's inevitable trials.
