2020-09-03 The Buddha as a Social Activist. 43:20
  James Baraz
Sometimes the teachings seem to suggest a life of withdrawing from the world. But the Buddha himself was an example of engagement and could even be called a political revolutionary. As we try to sort out how to apply the teachings, (including duties of a good ruler) to contemporary issues, it can help to see his teachings in that light.

2020-09-02 Meditation: Relaxing Back into Awareness 21:28
  Tara Brach
When we are in our daily trance, we are often leaning forward, on our way somewhere else. In this meditation we are guided to relax back into the awareness that is always, already here. We explore relaxing back through a body scan, and then with all our senses wide open. With practice we increasingly find our pathway home by relaxing the clench of doings, and resting in what is.

2020-09-02 Transforming Your Relationship with Anxiety 1:19:29
  Tara Brach
Strong anxiety frequently triggers fight-flight-freeze, our survival brain’s strategy for dealing with threats. This can become a trance that dominates our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and deepest experience of who we are. This talk explores how we get caught in this reactive trance, and ways of calming anxiety and radically shifting our way of relating to the experience of threat. The gift is discovering an inner freedom in the midst of life, and the capacity to respond to what arises with love-in-action.

2020-08-30 Citta as Embodied 42:10
  Ajahn Sucitto
The untrained citta runs out and becomes fixated by its own constructions, the primary construction being the sense of self. Citta can be trained to contain itself in awareness of body, distancing it from the abstractions of the mind. This is a very peaceful place to be.
