A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.

2001-10-23 Awakening From The Trance 59:10
The sense of being a "separate self" seems quite real and both filters and contracts our moment to moment experience of life. This talk investigates how the compelling show of separate self arises and how we can recognize and relax into our naturally radiant, compassionate and unconfined awareness.

2001-06-13 Transforming Fear 59:37
When we are identified inside the body of fear, our life contracts and our heart becomes hard. With the practices of mindfulness and compassion, we open our sense of being into the loving awareness that has room for fear.

When desire unfolds into craving and addiction, it becomes the source of great suffering. This talk examines the nature of desire, and the attitudes and practices that allow us to relate to this energy with freedom. When regarded wisely, desire is the stream that returns us to the ocean of loving.
