2014-02-04 Aspiration 47:54
  Annie Nugent
Do we have an aspiration in our practice? The Buddha tells us that the quality of aspiration plays an important role in keeping our practice alive and moving in the direction of freedom. This talk looks at the meaning of this quality and how it shows itself as our practice unfolds over time.
2014-02-11 Clear Awareness of the 4 Postures - and everything in between. 56:41
  Annie Nugent
The first foundation of mindfulness: The Body. We discuss the aspect of the four postures:sitting, standing, walking and lying down.... and everything in between these postures. A dynamic way to come to liberation...and one that the Buddha tells us we cannot do without if we aspire to freedom.

  Annie Nugent
We look at various permutations of views and opinions in this talk – Pointing fingers at others, we miss the fact that we are simply caught in our views and opinions. I am better than you... I am worse than you... all opinions and comparisons that keep us living in a very small world of delusion when mindfulness is not present - we don't see them as impermanent arisings in the mind.
