2021-06-07 Doing, Not-Doing, and The Doing That Comes from Not-Doing: In Meditation and in Daily Life 64:49
Donald Rothberg
We inquire into doing and not-doing in five ways: (1) identifying the importance of a number of different kinds of "doing" and skillful effort in meditation; (2) pointing also to the centrality of a kind of not-doing (or letting go of doing) and receptivity in meditation; (3) the importance of investigating the "doer" and one's identity as a doer, in a number of different ways, in meditation and daily life; (4) the vision of a doing that comes out of being, that comes out of a deep not-doing, a vision that we find in different spiritual traditions--here we mention ways that this vision is found in Jewish, Christian, Taoist, and Buddhist traditions; and (5) how we explore and cultivate this doing coming out of a deep not-doing in daily life, in "flow experiences," in activities in which we are deeply grounded, and in such areas as sports, music, art, and dance.

Gaia House Meeting Uncertainty with Wisdom and Courage: Perennial Teachings for a Changing World

2021-06-07 Day 3 - Instructions: This is not Peaceful (A Dukkha Insight Way of Looking) 59:23
Nathan Glyde
Noticing the unsatisfactory nature of all phenomena might sound bleak. But instead of ruminating on whether it is true or not, consider whether it is useful: notice if this lens of attention brings release and an ever deeper sense of freedom.

2021-06-06 Not Quite So: Co-Dependent Arising 28:49
Ajahn Sucitto
Our apparent reality arises from moods and interpretations that generate the world of time and space, self and other. It’s possible to meet the moods and mental states directly without creating stories or identities until the signs dissolve and only clarity remains. Meditation and engagement are skillful means to understand the dependent arising of our world, of suffering, and of skillful dhammas.

2021-06-06 Guided Meditation – Establish Puja as Your Abiding Place 14:40
Ajahn Sucitto
We can use the occasion of puja to cultivate signs of purity, beauty, liberation. You’ll feel it changes the rhythm of the mind – heart opens, thinking mind slows down and bodily presence wakes up. Anxieties and agitations are held in this open presence, felt in the body, and allowed to pass and dissolve.
