2015-08-18 Feeling tone - Vedana. 57:20
This talk explores the second foundation of mindfulness - Feeling tone... the pleasant, unpleasant or neutral feeling arising in every moment of experience. An important arena of mindfulness because this is where we can free ourselves from the habitual tendency to grasp/push away our likes and dislikes revealing the beauty of the mind that is free... This kind of mind is the ultimate brand of pleasant.

2014-11-16 Views and Opinions. 59:37
We look at various permutations of views and opinions in this talk – Pointing fingers at others, we miss the fact that we are simply caught in our views and opinions. I am better than you... I am worse than you... all opinions and comparisons that keep us living in a very small world of delusion when mindfulness is not present - we don't see them as impermanent, impersonal arisings in the mind.
