2007-09-05 The Basics Of Our Practice - Reflections On 3 Weeks In Mountain Retreat 56:28
Donald Rothberg
As we begin a new cycle after Labor Day, it’s helpful to identify the basics of our practice, which I do with reference to a just-completed 3 weeks on retreat in the mountains. We look at 1. Foundations – ethics, intentions, creating a space away from habits. 2. Development of concentration and awareness. 3. Heart – practice and 4. Integration in our everyday lives.

2007-10-01 Facing Aggression 54:03
Norman Fischer
Turning away is so natural to us but we must turn toward the aggression within us if we want to overcome it. Our practice is to do this, be patient with what we find, and learn to let it come and go rather than fix it. Then we will be able to act with kindness, and to change this world inside and out.
