2023-09-22 On Free-ness 49:13
Martin Aylward
Reflecting on the retreat title - ‘A joyful liberation’ - Martin looks at nuances of joy, and at that which is liberating, pointing beyond our formal meditation practices, into the wider realms of an integrative dharma practice with its personal, social and ecological dimensions.

2023-09-20 On Dissolution 51:52
Martin Aylward
Martin explores the essence refrain of the heart sutra, looking at emptiness in terms of gone-ness, spaciousness, and dissolution. He looks at what dissolves and what remains as our core structures dissolve, particularly in the areas of desire, belief, conformity and identity, or What I want, What I believe, How I behave and Who I take my myself to be.

2023-09-19 On Awake-ness 43:24
Martin Aylward
This talk begins with how Consciousness is fundamentally awake by nature. It explores ways this awake-ness gets obscured, ignored and suppressed, and goes on to looks at particular aspects of this awake nature and its functioning, such as consciousness, awareness, presence, and attention, then looks at the fruits of an awakened life.

2023-09-10 Fundamental Attribution Delusion 1:30:44
Nathan Glyde
At the core of the teachings, we have avidya: the fundamental point that we do not see things as they are. Our perception is not reality, it can be changed by how we look, where we look, and with what underlying principle concepts we look through. Let's bring in a few cognitive ideas into our Dharma approach. In particular, how 'fundamental attribution error(s)' are reinforced by 'naïve realism' to generate a self-world view that promotes impossible happiness claims. A recording of the meditation, Dharma reflections, and answers (only) to questions and reflections from participants (to preserve their privacy).
