2020-04-14 All Phenomena are Empty. Fill them with Metta. 38:44
All phenomena are fabricated by perception: all things are empty of inherently existing separate from the atmosphere of attention. We explore what happens to phenomena and the sense of self when perception is soaked in kindness and care. Supported by the suttas: Two Sorts of Thinking (MN19), and the Karaniya Metta Sutta (SN1.8).

2020-04-11 Day 1 Instructions - Welcoming Body in a Spacious Awareness 54:31
Supporting steadiness, openness, and dedication in our practice. Via a spread and open awareness that is intentionally receiving–inviting–the present body sensations into the spacious awareness. Our dedication is to stay steady with it, and to re-open and re-invite, when our attention, naturally, moves away. All of this is done with a gentle atmosphere of metta–kindness.

2020-04-10 Opening Talk - Metta and Emptiness 39:19
Introducing the main concept of this retreat: sankhara-fabrication. In particular the insight that experience is 'made up' from an object in attention and an atmosphere of attention. The latter we could call the way of relating, or way of looking (as Rob Burbea teaches it). We can pay attention to different objects, and that affects expereince. We can also develop ('bhavana' = cultivate) other atmospheres or modes of attending.
