2019-03-19 Freely Engaging 55:35
  Martin Aylward
These talks build on one another and work well as a series. Building on and referring to the previous talks on the retreat, these reflexions serve as an invitation to reflect on our engagement with the world. Reflections draw on a full and free engagement with thought, speech and action for showing up amidst the turbulence and uncertainty of the world we live in.
Freeness and Friction: How We Meet Ourselves and the World

2019-03-18 Freely Allowing 40:53
  Martin Aylward
These talks build on one another and work well as a series. Dharma practice is an invitation, and training, in meeting experience spaciously and graciously. These reflections unpack what that means, pointing to the inherently spacious nature of awareness, and the free heart’s capacity to hold experience tenderly.

2019-03-17 Freely Knowing 46:55
  Martin Aylward
These talks build on one another and work well as a series. This talk looks at the inherently knowing nature of mind. Martin looks at the way we get stuck in knowledge, or knowing about, and generate anxiety and a sense of deficiency about not knowing. He invites us beyond conventional knowing into non-conceptual awareness, and the direct knowing of whatever is happening.
Freeness and Friction: How We Meet Ourselves and the World

2019-03-16 Freely Abiding 50:01
  Martin Aylward
These talks build on one another and work well as a series. In this talk Martin explores the capacity to inhabit experience, to be with experience from the inside; to abide in the midst of what is happening. The talk uses the storm that is raging outside the hall as an example of sitting steadily in the midst of turbulence, and all that swirls around our attention.
