2021-04-17 Being a Person Pt. 2 35:09
Ajahn Sucitto
Aspects of this human life – where we live, what we do, who we associate with – become reference points for the person. How we relate to them affects how the person manifests. We can train in a relating that is stable and disengaged, neither favoring nor opposing, no longer finding fault with the world and thereby dismantling worldly attitudes.

2021-04-17 Guided Meditation - Stable Disengagement 17:38
Ajahn Sucitto
Body and mind work together to bring about the sense of stability and balance. Disengagement is then possible, becoming your frame of reference as phenomena arise. Agreeable feeling comes from disengagement.

2021-04-14 “Make Love of Your Self Perfect” - retreat talk 63:24
Tara Brach
Like a dense fog, chronic self -judgment blocks the light of our true nature. This talk explores the challenges to loving the life within us, and the pathways of practice that lead to holding our own being and all life in a boundless tender heart.

2021-04-14 Meditation: Coming Home with the Breath 17:46
Tara Brach
This guided practice has a short period of relaxing the body, and establishes the breath as a home base for attention. We practice arriving again and again, deepening the pathway of homecoming. The meditation ends with lovingkindness for ourselves and our world.

2021-04-14 Guided Meditation – Let Open Restfulness Clean the Mind 51:32
Ajahn Sucitto
Within an open restful frame, things can be expressed, felt and sensed. It’s a chance for things to complete themselves and move on. The only effort is to stay in touch with this open restful frame. Just let the still openness work for you.

2021-04-14 Doing and Not-Doing in Meditation and Daily Life 4: Talk, Guided Meditation, and Discussion 1:13:33
Donald Rothberg
We review briefly the basic perspectives that we've explore in preceding sessions: the importance of active "doing" in meditation and daily life, the importance as well as receptivity and "not-doing" in meditation and daily life, and ways in which to inquire into our more fixed identity as a "doer." We then look at two broad perspectives on a doing coming out of a deep not-doing: (1) in "flow" experiences and the experiences of "experts" in a given area, with examples from art, music, sports, and everyday life; and (2) in spiritual traditions, with a particular emphasis on Taoist and Buddhist sources. Then there is a second guided meditation, about 20 minutes long, and beginning at 35:55, grounded in the earlier guided meditation before the talk, in which we explore a progressive letting-go of both more gross and more subtle dimensions of meditative doing, opening up to a deeper non-doing, which can be the basis for the "doing coming out of a deep not-doing" we explored in the talk. Finally, we have open discussion.

2021-04-14 Doing and Not-Doing in Meditation and Daily Life: Guided Meditation 1 28:40
Donald Rothberg
About a 30-minute guided meditation emphasizing the balance of more active "doing" and more receptive awareness (a kind of "not-doing") in meditation. We start with intentions and then settling of attention and awareness, followed by opening up to what is predominant, integrating both more active and more receptive dimensions of practice. This session is followed by a talk on the theme of doing and not-doing in meditation and daily life, and a second guided meditation, which goes more deeply into not-doing.
