2011-07-02 Opening Talk for the Path of Mindfulness 57:14
  John Peacock
2011-07-03 What is this Path of Mindfulness? 45:43
  John Peacock
This talk covers the relationship of mindfulness to the three marks of existence as well as the the three 'fires' of greed, aversion and delusion. The question is also raised as to how we want to live our lives and our commitment to that vision.
2011-07-04 Papanca Part One: The Unquenchable Thirst 48:36
  John Peacock
In this talk we examine what the Buddha means by the 'self', which is the second of the three poles around which thinking contracts and fixates. We look closely at the five processes that constitute the self not as a static phenomena, but as an unfolding and dynamic development.

In this talk we examine what the Buddha means by the 'self', which is the second of the three poles around which thinking contracts and fixates. We look closely at the five processes that constitute the self not as a static phenomena, but as an unfolding and dynamic development.

2011-07-08 Papanca Part Three: The Brahma Viharas 52:50
  John Peacock
This talk deals with the last of the areas of our obsessional thinking: views. We also examine the Brahma Viharas as distinct forms of mindfulness that lead to liberation. We look closely, in particular, at metta as the necessary soil out of which grows and blooms the beautiful flower of compassion (karuna).
