2020-10-30 Mettā to the Whole World 40:59
Guided mettā meditation where we are really feeling the feeling behind the phrases. Offering unconditional kindness: to someone from an easy relationship; to more neutral relationships; even towards slightly more difficult ones; or to ourselves; and then out to all of life and the whole world.

2020-10-30 Day 1 Meditation Instructions - Befriending the Moment 56:43
Radical shifts are possible for us: Understanding that mindfulness already has kindness in it we can bring this metta quality to all things. We can also support this atmosphere by relaxing body, heart and mind. We can do this by resting back into back of the body, and bringing forward a more open, sensitive, naturally-caring, non-demanding attention to what is appearing.

2020-10-11 Mettā Samādhi or Samādhi Mettā 55:38
Exploring what happens when we offer mettā phrases that resonate with and radiate the felt sense of samādhi. Apologies: there are a lot of environmental noises from the sonic-cityscape I sat in to offer this online session. Hopefully the inimitable delight of Dharma overcomes the occasional annoyance of a horn, alarm, or call of a city dwellers.

2020-09-28 Day 4 Instructions - Seeing Not-Self Anattā 66:34
Meditation instructions exploring the strategy of not-self–how is it to apply the recipe of seeing this is not me, not mine, not my self? Before that a few words sustaining our meditation experience: 1. keeping the balloon of practice alive through all postures, and 2. the idea of taking a victory lap when the bell rings–rather than ending quickly.

2020-09-25 Vedanā - the Current in the Ocean of Life 49:58
Dukkha is dependently originating with tanha (demands), demands are dependently originating with preference, preference is dependently originating with unquestioned belief in the subjective arising of vedana. But more and more peace is possible.
