 The Buddhas Very First Teachings | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

In this talk, we explore the first two sermons the Buddha gave 2,600 years ago, just weeks after attaining enlightenment. In these first two talks he laid out the core principles of his teachings, including the four noble truths, in ways that were startling and transformational to his first five disciples. In fact, they woke up right there. We share a bit about what the Buddha said, why it was so radical, and why it caused such changes among those who were listening to him.

 Energy - Third Factor of Awakening | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

This month we are exploring the third factor of Awakening – Energy. We can practice with energy in two ways. First, through our level of commitment.  Be truthful and assess the amount of energy you bring to your spiritual growth. What is your honest commitment to being awake?  What priority does opening your heart have in your life? What holds you back from greater urgency?  When do you feel this urgency, when do you not? Are you more likely to practice during difficult times or when your life is going well? There is no judgment here.  This is about learning to see the role energy and intention plays in practice.  We want to make it less about “me needing to do something” and more about becoming aware of the intentions and assumptions behind our action or lack of action.  Secondly, energy is about developing right effort.  Try practicing with simply letting go of any unskillfulness without judgment or comment, set an intention to not pick up an unskillful habit, cultivate opening heart/softening your attitude and really appreciate any moments of kindness and/or care.
