2023-04-29 What You Imagine You Can Do 1:23:55
Using our imagination is useful for extending the range of what feels and thereby is possible for us. Yet, we might feel (or imagine) like the teachings and practices we do are to be with reality more directly than via imagination. But, is it that even possible?

2023-04-16 Beyond Belief: Questioning Vedanā 1:43:18
A guided meditation, Dharma reflection, and the answers (only) to some questions on the theme. Vedanā is not an easy word to translate, (maybe Niceness Opinion gets close). Yet, it is a very subtle and significant teaching, about a very subtle and significant event-maker, that when followed through with, a subtle and significant freedom becomes available for us. In this practice session, we will uncover the subliminal happening of vedanā, drop our rigid belief in what it commands, and create unbelievable well-being through a more skilful way of relating to it, and to all life.

2023-03-11 Inestimable Esteem 1:18:01
There is always a sense of self-esteem operating, affected by and affecting how we evaluate, and how much we value and care about ourselves. Self-esteem also influences our perception of the world, as we see through the self-esteem flavoured view. When this flows into self-confidence (or lack thereof) we see how significant how much we back ourselves to act in the world, further shapes the world. Our real potential naturally lies beyond whatever constricted views, and blind spots (assumptions and presumptions) we inevitably have. Knowing we can, and how we can shape the self-esteem view, is another step on the path of freedom.

2023-02-18 About A Bout o' Doubt 1:24:34
The hindrances are essential to notice, and to question, to gently challenge their view. Doubt is one of the most pernicious hindrances: anytime we consider stopping or not starting our practice, it is doubt declaring confidently: "there is nothing here for you, no liberation, no beauty, no meaningfulness". But there is! Guided meditation, and Dharma reflection, with just the answer to some questions at the end.

2023-02-11 Seeing Change Changes Seeing (Anicca) 1:23:40
Looking into the insight of inconstancy (anicca). When we look for anicca we find everything is anicca, when we don't, most everything isn't seen that way. Anicca supports letting go: this way of looking is useful for freedom. Leading on from that, due to the importance of feeling free and knowing freedom, when we're honest, usefulness in our way of perceiving is more important than the truth or not of it. Letting go of truth claims (without losing our honest integrity) opens up even more creativity to apply even more liberating ways of looking. Includes: Guided Meditation (30 mins); Dharma Reflection (30 mins); Answers to Questions (questions not recorded).
