2021-10-06 Dankbarkeit 45:28
Renate Seifarth
Wenn wir Metta für unsere Wohltäter üben, spüren wir eine große Dankbarkeit aufsteigen, die uns füllt und nährt. Eine kurze Reflexion während des Tages, was wir alles Schönes erfahren haben, führt uns den täglichen Reichtum vor Augen. Das braucht ein innehalten und Vieles nicht für selbstverständlich nehmen.

2021-10-06 The Seven Factors of Awakening 68:45
Donald Rothberg
After a brief review of the last two sessions that Donald has offered on traditional teachings about awakening and contemporary maps of the path of awakening, we explore the core teaching of the Seven Factors of Awakening: mindfulness, investigation, resolve or energy, joy or rapture, tranquility, concentration, and equanimity. We look both individually at each of the seven, and also suggest a number of ways of practicing with this teaching, whether in a particular meditation session, in daily life, or over a sustained period of time. At the end, there is some discussion.

2021-10-04 The Nature of Awakening: Traditional and Contemporary Maps 1:11:48
Donald Rothberg
While much of our interest in practice may be focused on finding some degree of peace and understanding, or on making workable challenging states of body, mind, and heart, it's helpful to keep the vision of how practice aims at awakening (bodhi). In this talk, we explore how the Buddha understood awakening and the path to awakening, as well as perspectives on the lived experience of awakening from later Buddhist traditions. We then ask the question about whether a contemporary path of awakening simply follows the traditional path of awakening. We explore how it's important also to include as parts of the path of awakening teachings and practices that help us work with both more psychological material (such as connected with difficult early experiences, trauma, limiting beliefs, etc.) and with our social conditioning (such as around race, gender, sexuality, class, age, etc.), areas that may not be adequately transformed only with the resources of traditional paths of awakening.
