2019-02-16 The Power of Intention (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:45
  James Baraz
The Buddha said that karma is all based on intention. In every moment we are sowing the seeds of suffering or happiness. In addition to this moment to moment aspect, intention also refers to a wider motivation—Clear Comprehension of Purpose—our aspiration and vision that fuels and inspires us to practice. Both of these dimensions of intention are explored.

2019-02-15 Wie unser Sehen die Welt erschafft 59:40
  Yuka Nakamura
Durch die Praxis von Vipassana erkennen wir die bedingte und fabrizierte Natur unserer Erfahrung. Wir erkennen, wie jegliche Erfahrung in Abhängigkeit vieler Bedingungen entsteht und gestaltet wird. Ein entscheidender Faktor dabei ist die Sichtweise, durch welche wir unsere Erfahrung betrachten. Im Wissen um diese Bedingtheit können bewusst mit verschiedenen Sichtweisen experimentieren, die zu mehr Freiheit und Glück führen. Im Vortrag werden die Sichtweisen der drei Charakteristika, die Sichtweise der liebenden Güte sowie symbolische, imaginale und mystische Sichtweisen als mögliche Sichtweisen besprochen.

2019-02-15 Choiceless Awareness: Guided meditation Day 14 (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 43:43
  Tempel Smith
A guided practice for letting go of specific objects or sense doors to practice open or choiceless awareness. For some people this is a more natural way of practicing. The intent is to become mindful of one’s mental activity as it is drawn to different experiences arising at any of the six sense doors. From this practice you can gain insight into how the mind works and find freedom no matter what the experience.

2019-02-14 2nd Foundation of Mindfulness - Vedana (Feeling Tone) (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:30
  Tempel Smith
Continuing from the Anapanasati sutta we turn to vedana, the 2nd foundation of mindfulness. With great courage. we can develop contentment no matter the pleasure, pain or neutrality of any give moment. In not understanding vedana we are forever imprisoned by our wrong views. When we can breath consciously in a greater range of pain, pleasure and neutrality we find the path to non-conditional contentment.
