After decades of practice and teaching, what inspires me are those moments when I can see the habitual as if it were for the first time. If such moments occur while I'm giving a talk, then the teacher in me can hear its own words imbued with the freshness imparted by those who truly listen -- the multiple aspects of myself being part of the audience as well. Thanks for your participation in the process.

2015-03-22 Abiding in Emptiness 34:00
Dropping our self-centeredness is a requirement for becoming partners with the world. And true partnership requires also that we, eventually, dismantle our sense of inhabiting a separate life.

2015-03-21 Seeing the World Afresh 21:50
Our practice is meant to capture the flow of the real. The practice of "choiceless awareness" is most helpful for that.

2015-03-20 The Compulsion to Compartmentalize 26:19
We tend to deal with the world by fragmenting it and stowing each fragment into a separate compartment of our mind. In so doing, we distance ourselves from the flow of life.

2014-10-25 Dismantling Our Addiction to What Is Not 38:59

2014-10-24 The Unadorned Awareness of What Is 42:06

2014-06-01 Seeing The World In Its Integrity 33:00
We habitually see the world dislocated into fragments, ignoring that all its aspects are profoundly intertwined. Let's see it all of one piece. Let's join the world.

2014-05-31 Divesting Of Me 31:39
This talk is a sequel of the previous one ("Searching For Me"). It invites us to forget our own press-releases, and to empty the screen of our mind.

2014-05-30 Searching For Me 31:43
We spend much effort trying to define who we are. At times we even use our DNA for that. This search brings only suffering. Let's drop it.

2013-10-27 Craving For Identity 32:19
We have come to believe that life is about fabricating an identity for ourselves. Yet this brings us much suffering. Only by dropping this obsession for self-identity can we create a space where the many facets of ourselves can unfold.
