Two new talks online


I've got two new talks online from recent weeks.  The first is called "Cultivating Equanimity."

The flower of mindfulness practice is equanimity, the capacity to allow your experience to be exactly what it is - no matter what it is.

The second talk (from this week) is "On Gratitude and Giving."  This talk explores what gets in the way of gratitude and how you can actively cultivate this state.  Post-Thanksgiving, it's interesting to reflect on your experience of the ratio of two opposites:  Gratitude and Complaining.  When I pay attention I notice it's actually a little meter that moves from moment to moment.

With a little practice we find that these somewhat rare states of equanimity and gratitude can be cultivated.  iTunes podcast here and direct streaming here.
