2010-02-15 Abundant Enoughness: The Practice of Contentment 61:01
  James Baraz

2010-02-16 Impermanence 61:04
  Andrea Fella
Everyone knows that "things change". Yet as the Mahabarata points out "only the surface-mind understands, the actual sense never goes into our heads". Exploring our experience deeply, we can move past the surface understanding to deeply recognize this truth.

Practice is more than just opening to suffering. It is a path of happiness. We can incline the mind to open to and awaken wholesome states that lead to well-being and, ultimately, liberation.
2010-02-20 Clinging and Identification with I, Me and Mine 59:34
  Sally Clough Armstrong
The Buddha saw that we continually cling to and create a sense of self out of five aspects of our experience. Seeing this process clearly can lead to the possibility of letting go and freedom.
2010-02-21 The Obvious 58:16
  Andrea Fella
We often understand our habits and patterns as having many complex layers, and think we need to dive into the midst of the layers in order to "really" understand the pattern. This talk explores a gentle investigation of what is obvious in our experience, which allows a natural, organic understanding to emerge.
2010-02-24 Empty of Self / Full of Everything 63:13
  Howard Cohn
Emptiness is creative expression and creative potential. Both appreciating the immediate expression of emptiness as everything as well as emptiness as creative possibility to plant seeds of awakening.
