The Eight Worldly Concerns

The Eight Worldly Concerns

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, the renowned nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, will lead us on a study of the Eight Worldly Concerns—which we might also call the eight anxieties or "hang-ups." jetsunma lists them as gain and loss, praise and blame, good reputation and bad reputation, and pleasure and pain. Overcoming our anxieties about these worldly concerns liberates tremendous amounts of energy for finding our true purpose and our innate perfection. July 2011

Selfless Practice

Selfless Practice


In this retreat, Vipassana teacher Rodney Smith offers nothing less than a new way to live. In order to align ourselves with the deepest truths of Buddhism, we must move from the paradigm of self and self-centeredness into selflessness. When we step out of the narrow and limiting confines of the self, we find freedom in a vast and expansive world. May 2011

The Five Hindrances

The Five Hindrances


The Five Hindrances are obstacles that arise in our meditation practice—and in our lives—that throw us into confusion. They are: Desire, Aversion, Laziness, Restlessness, and Doubt. Each of them has its own way of knocking us off the path of practice, and yet, dealing with the Hindrances is our practice. If we had no negative emotional states to confront, we wouldn't be on the spiritual path at all!April 2011

Letting Go

Letting Go


The Buddha taught ‘letting go’ as an essential part of the path to true fulfilment. His message seems to go against the grain of our unspoken assumption that happiness comes from acquiring—relationships, wealth, kudos, fame, convictions, etc. In this series of talks, we’ll look at why letting go might just be the best thing to do.
