2011-12-07 The Backward Step 1:18:03
  Tara Brach
Our habit is to think we are on our way someplace else, and that our happiness is to be found outside ourselves. Yet realization becomes possible when we take the backward step into the formless dimension of our own being. This talk explores the two pathways that awaken us from our stories of self and reveal the love and awareness that is our true nature. (video available)
2011-12-14 The Dance of Relational Trance 1:18:54
  Tara Brach
When we become emotionally reactive in our relationships, we often go into a trance that creates separation and locks us into a narrow sense of self. This talk explores how, by pausing and deepening our attention, we can reconnect with the wisdom of our hearts. (video available)

  Tara Brach
Our attitude in the face of life's challenges determines our suffering or our freedom.
