2010-03-02 Why We Need Mindfulness 54:31
Heather Martin
Why our dear doomed attempts to be well need revising, and how nourishing our spirits while Staying, Loving, Opening and Wondering are the strategies that actually bring wellbeing by clearing the dust away.
2010-03-03 Mindfulness of the Body and Why It Is So Important 60:28
Donald Rothberg
Mindfulness of the body is absolutely fundamental for our practice and was for the Buddha, both a starting point and an end point. We explore (1) why mindfulness of the body is crucial both in the Buddha's teaching and especially in our highly mental culture; (2) how we practice mindfulness of breathing and mindfulness of postures and activities; and (3) how mindfulness of the body works to transform us.
2010-03-04 The Hindrances 53:43
Gil Fronsdal
2010-03-05 The Risk of Being Present 47:25
Sharda Rogell
Our practice invites us to return to the present moment - yet in order to be here, we must let go of everything and enter this moment unburdened. Are we willing? If so, we will discover our true refuge - that which is utterly reliable.
2010-03-06 Dependent Co-Arising 54:15
John Travis
2010-03-08 The Four Truths 58:10
Heather Martin
How the first two Noble Truths describe Samsara and the circular chain of Dependent origination, and how the third and fourth Truths have been expanded to form Transcendental dependent arising, which beautiful topics will be further explored during this month - long retreat.
2010-03-09 Following Faith to Liberation 48:39
Mary Grace Orr
The Buddha teaches both about the cycle of suffering and another cycle leading to liberation. When we willingly encounter our suffering directly, conviction arises and leads us deeper into our practice.
2010-03-10 Delight in the Dharma (Liberative Dependent Arising 3) 56:46
Donald Rothberg
Delight (or joy or gladness, pamojja) is the second factor that emerges as we shift away from repetitive cycles of suffering. We explore how delight manifests as delight in practice, in our integrity, the "bliss of blamelessness," and in other ways. We also look at how to cultivate delight, how delight or joy support the deepening of our practice, and what makes delight difficult to access.
2010-03-11 Dependent Arising and Joy 61:31
Gil Fronsdal
2010-03-12 Beyond Rapture 47:46
