2014-08-21 The Secret Instruction To Open Your heart And Deepen Your Mindfulness Practice 48:56
  James Baraz
You're probably very familiar with the power of mindfulness. But as powerful as it is to just see things clearly, we can include a perspective that will bring richness and depth to our dharma practice.
2014-09-11 Sudden Awakening/Gradual Cultivation 49:16
  James Baraz
Does awakening happen all at once or over time? Both. Even after one has an awakening experience there is still more work to be done. This talk explores awakening and the purification of habits that is an essential part of that process.
2014-09-18 The Contagion of Goodness 51:02
  James Baraz
Just like anger and fear are contagious so is goodness. In fact, that is our true nature and there's a place in us that longs to come home to it. We just have to tune into all the goodness around us to remember.
2014-09-25 "Behind is Just a State of Mind" 57:27
  James Baraz
The external pressure to accomplish and keep up we may feel from others is usually not as burdensome as the internal pressure we put on ourselves. How can we see through this self-created suffering and live our life with more ease?
2014-10-09 "A Moment of Freedom: Interrupting Negative Thoughts." 58:56
  James Baraz
Even though we know that jumping on a particular thought train might lead to trouble in the mind, we can still hop on. How can we wake up and more consciously choose before taking the leap?
2014-10-16 The Magic of Awareness 57:28
  James Baraz
In examining the mind we can see the insubstantiality of our thoughts and the mysterious ground of emptiness from which they arise. This talk includes songs from the Tibetan classic Flight of the Garuda which explores the nature of awareness--empty of substance but at the same time fully awake.
2014-10-23 "I Just Can't Decide!" - Wise Discernment in Daily Life 58:10
  James Baraz
We are continuously faced with decisions in our lives. Some are minor while others are more significant. How can we skillfully choose between all the options?
