2014-08-20 Practicing with Challenges 4 - Working with Conflict 60:11
  Donald Rothberg
We explore a more relational way of practicing with challenges, looking at practicing with conflict. We examine some of the personal and cultural conditioning about conflict, as well as ways to bring wisdom, empathy, compassion and skillful action into conflicts, whether inner, interpersonal or social. Conflict is defined more neutrally and simply as a difference in objectives, goals or values.

2014-08-19 Mindfulness in Close Relationships 41:37
  Matthew Brensilver
This talk was given as a part of the series "Where Rubber Meets the Road: A Series on Mindful Living." A real place for us to check our practice is in our relationships. After all, we are deeply relational beings. Sometimes, our deepest grooves in our minds are only stimulated in relationships. Defilements and habits of mind, such as greed, anger, and delusion, arise in ways that they don't in other situations. In other words, forces of suffering that are latent in other situations can arise in the context of close relationships. Fortunately, this is actually not bad news. Rather, it offers us opportunity to practice, to see ourselves more clearly, to become more free, and to see how we can untangle the love from clinging.
