2021-09-25 Non-reactive with Distractions 68:52
Nathan Glyde
To be distracted, etymologically, is to be "drawn apart". The opposite of distraction therefore may be more skilfully called gathered rather than undistracted. Does our way of relating to the activity of the distractible heart-mind create dukkha (stress and reactivity) or release into a gathered and harmonised freedom?

2021-09-23 Seeing Beyond the Mask: Looking Past Our Assumptions 53:33
James Baraz
In his teaching on the Four Noble Truths, the Buddha describes in the Second Noble Truth four kinds of attachments that cause suffering. One of these is attachment to ideas and opinions. We explore this topic of looking beyond our views and opinions that are causing so much divisiveness and separation in these pandemic days.

2021-09-22 Anger: Responding, Not Reacting 53:21
Tara Brach
Anger is natural, intelligent and necessary for surviving and flourishing. Yet when we are hooked by anger, it causes great personal and collective suffering. This talk explores how to transform patterns of reactivity by bringing a mindful and compassionate attention to the unmet needs that underlie angry reactivity. When we learn how to pause and connect honestly with our inner experience, we are then able to respond to others from our full intelligence and heart.
