Circling Enlightenment

Nov. 30, 2016

In this talk Doan Roessler explores the idea of enlightenment. We all have preconceptions about it that we carry into practice and our literature is full of stories about people who became enlightened. There is a struggle to understand what is meant by the word and what place it could have in our practice.

Wholehearted Engagement without Attachment

Nov. 16, 2016

Sunday talk by Mark Nunberg, Guest Teacher from Common Ground Meditation Center

The calm of meditation practice can appear to be paradoxical when our world seems to be asking for a dynamic engagement. Is it possible for our hearts to be free from attachment and struggle and, at the same time, wholeheartedly respond to the suffering and joy in and around us? Clarifying this seeming paradox goes to the heart of the Buddha’s path of awakening.
