2017-05-30 Going Against the Stream: Guided Meditation 34:59
Martin Aylward
2500 years ago, Buddha taught meditation and inner inquiry as a revolutionary practice; Training the mind and freeing the heart to turn against the streams of greed, negativity and confusion that we see habitually affecting both our own inner lives, and driving the dominant forces of society. How can we genuinely explore and deeply understand how these currents and habits operate, so as to find an inner freedom and ease, and to make a wise and effective response to the world we live in?

2017-10-24 Tuesday Night Teacher-Led Sit with Lama Rod Owens 56:30
Lama Rod Owens
The great Black American singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder once sang, “Love’s in need of love today.” His words couldn’t be more true as we face a global community struggling with war, poverty, illness, climate instability, and the rise of political authorities and governments who do not seem to be grounded in compassion or kindness. We speak about love and attempt to practice love but some of us are losing faith in the transformative power of the wish for ourselves and others to be happy. Our practice of love is in need of our renewed faith in love. In this talk, we will be exploring the question of how practicing love can become a strategy that resists and undoes our experiences fear, apathy, and numbness as we attempt to live and love in a challenging world.

Thanissara
The Mula Sutta is a profound teaching that in ten lines condenses the journey from separative consciousness to the non dual heart.
