2014-01-25 Radiant Stillness 42:43
It is transforming to simply pause, sense and listen instead of immediately filling up the space. When we become sensitive and attuned to the neutral tone in life it can become an entry to the stillness of the ground of being. With the help of poetry and stories, unfabricated silence and the power of not knowing is invited into the practice space. An invitation to shift our weight, more profoundly than the mind can imagine, to the unfabricated, the unconditioned, the deathless.

2014-01-24 Identity and Being 52:50
Who am I beyond concepts and ideas about myself? What does it mean to experience myself as a medium of consciousness? What is it that needs to wake up and what goes through transformation? This evening talk inquires into how embodied presence allows experience to arise in a more complete and whole way. As our capacity to be clear and sensitive evolves we become more malleable in our being, more real in our understanding and capable to respond rather than react to life.

2013-09-05 The Illusion of Self, Equanimity and Beyond the Abyss 53:01
To ask 'who am I?' is not a theoretical or esoteric question, but a practical question to ask in the midst of life. A steadiness of awareness makes it possible to trace the process of identity in relationship to body, mind, our belief, our roles, our situations in life and beyond any sense of self. When we are less identified we become more spacious and easy going. The radiant heart quality of equanimity - upekka - is essential when it comes to loosening fixed identity and living a life that embraces form and emptiness in a natural and authentic way.

2013-09-01 Expanding The Heart and Remaining Within the Window of Prescence 57:12
This talk explores how the heart can awaken in mindful contact with the fundamental aspects of life - anicca, anatta and dukkha. To embody the awakening heart we need to understand and end the harmful force of shame and self-judgement. When there is an emerging inner climate of kind and attuned presence, the heart awakens itself.
