2014-03-06 Sutta Study Series: The Buddha's Advice for Overcoming Sloth and Torpor 51:19
  James Baraz
Do you ever get sleepy while meditating? In this discourse, the Capala Sutta from the Angutarra Nikaya, the Buddha catches one of his main disciples, Ven. Maha Moggallana nodding off. He then offers him seven strategies for overcoming "sloth and torpor". Identifying with the drowsiness can actually be a doorway to the wisdom of anatta or the selfless nature of reality.
2014-03-13 Sutta Series: The Vacchagotta Suttas (MN(#71, #72, #73) 59:44
  James Baraz
We continue the Sutta series exploring the Vacchagotta suttas from the Majjhima Nikaya. Vacchagotta asks many questions of the Buddha. In a series of conversations, the Buddha expounds to Vacchagotta on such topics as whether or not he's omniscient, on various speculative views about what happens after death and if nuns and householders can be enlightened.

  James Baraz
This is a discourse on practicing patience and a kind heart regardless of the circumstances.
2014-03-27 "The Removal of Distracting Thoughts" (MN #20). 55:41
  James Baraz
In this discourse the Buddha gives five different strategies for working with troublesome thoughts and mind-states. A very practical teaching on working with the mind when it gets caught and mindfulness is not strong enough.
2014-04-03 Continuing the Sutta Series with The Angulimala Sutta 53:01
  James Baraz
One of the most inspiring teachings on the potential for each of us to change. Angulimala, a violent killer, encounters the Buddha, wakes up from his confusion and becomes a holy man. No matter how deep our unskillful habits are, we can take comfort and inspiration in the capacity of the heart to awaken and face in the right direction.
2014-04-17 Exploring the Buddha's teaching on Anatta (or not-self), the Anatta-lakkhana Sutta: The Discourse on the Not-self Characteristic. 53:33
