Guy Armstrong's Dharma Talks
Guy Armstrong
What has always engaged me is working with practitioners who are deepening their commitment to the Dharma and then seeing them take a quantum leap in their understanding. My contribution to this commitment is working towards conveying a Theravadan practice with a Mahayana spirit.

2011-07-17 Metta: Near and Far Enemies 59:27
Metta (loving kindness) practice leads us into the exploration of all of the heart's responses to life. Especially good grounds for understanding are in the experience of loving kindness, its near enemy of affection with attachment, and its far enemy of ill will.

2011-02-27 Unentangled Knowing 59:04
"Unentangled knowing" is an approach to meditation in which we are aware of things coming and going at the sense doors without becoming caught in them. Supported by tranquility and insight, we can rest in the knowing while being fully awake to life.

2011-02-22 Nature of Awareness 56:04
The Buddha clearly described consciousness as an impermanent part of the mind. Yet many people feel that awareness has some kind of lasting or ongoing nature. How can we understand this seeming contradiction? How can we make awareness itself part of our meditation?

2010-11-17 Emptiness and Karma 60:13
At first glance it might seem the teaching of karma, in which our actions bring results to ourselves, might be in contradiction to the understanding that our experience is empty of a self. However, the two teachings on emptiness and karma actually need each other for liberation to be possible.

2010-11-16 The Empty Nature of Awareness 68:12
We can be aware of many objects in meditation. It's also possible to turn our attention to awareness itself. The talk explores what happens when we do this. Is awareness findable? Does it come and go? Is it conditioned? And what is the value of meditating like this?
