2012-09-30 Watching the Breath, Watching the Mind, with the Mind (part 2 of 2) 1:43:54
  Ven. Sayalay Susila
The object of this two-day retreat is to first calm your mind and then to understand your various states of mind. On Saturday, we will practice concentration using anapanasati, mindfulness of breath, in order to develop calmness and serenity of the mind so that the dharma can manifest itself. As Buddha said: “develop concentration, one with concentration sees things as they really are.” On Sunday, we will use this more concentrated mind to practice contemplation of mind, cittanuppassana. All defilements arise from the mind, so learning how to watch one’s own mind is the “key to happiness.” You are encouraged to attend this retreat as Sayalay Susila will show us the profound way to train ourselves to be mindful of our own mind, gradually liberating it from all defilements — in other words — freedom of the mind.

2012-08-11 Awareness of Thinking (part 2 of 2) 57:51
  Jason Siff
Most meditation techniques focus on the breath, bodily sensations, or the sense doors, and treat thinking as a distraction. In this meditation workshop, Jason Siff will teach a method of becoming more aware of one’s thoughts and emotions in meditation. The approach he developed is called, “Recollective Awareness Meditation,” and you can find out more about it at this website: www.skillfulmeditation.org

2012-07-15 Equanimity in Our Daily Life: Awakening to Our True Nature #2 1:26:07
  Bhante Buddharakkhita
What does it means to be awake from moment to moment? Do you have difficulties in finding balance in your life? Are you centered and grounded in your daily life? We will explore the last two of the seven factors of awakening: Concentration and Equanimity. When mindfulness and concentration practice gains momentum, we will begin to find balance in our daily life. Equanimity will organically arise and serve as a supporting factor on the path to inner-peace, true happiness and final awakening.
