2018-12-01 Dosa and Adosa (Aversion and Non-Aversion) Practice Recording 2:15:41
The Buddha was interested in understanding the human experience; he was not trying to establish a religion. He wondered why there was human suffering? And he is inviting us into this same inquiry. This recording is a series of talks from various retreats by Gregory Kramer on dosa and adosa stitched together by Insight Dialogue Community member, Kathy Beck-Coon. She wrote up guidance on how this recording can be used for Insight Dialogue practice and to support practice groups. In addition, Insight Dialogue member, Anne Symington, wrote up a summary of the teachings and a timestamp summary of the audio.

This awareness is inclusive and spacious." Contemplate something in your life that is difficult, feeling your heart vibrating with the pain". " Be present to the pain waith compassion for this being, the compassionate response". "Listener, how was it like to receive this?" 2. Now the gift of our practice is to touch joy, something positive, wholesome, uplifting. Let it infuse you, vibrate within you." Listener, touch the experience of hearing about joy. 3." Whatever experience that might be present of mutual or sympathetic equanimity,where the heart balances together." 4. "What is manifesting now?

Dyad with separate speakers for the first two contemplations 1. straight-forward suffering. The pain can be proliferated and held up and at this micro-level flips into Dukka-dukka 2.the dukka of impermanence, that comes with the instability of things and our responses " Give attention to the quality of receiving." " What is it like to be speaking of this pain of impermanence....; to be hearing it?" 3.the suffering associated waith constructions and the constructing mind "Those images that come and haunt the mind." "That ongoing tumult of the body-mind responding to its own fabrications." "Can we get off the bus?"
