Vedana, Talk 2 (Tim Geil)

Practice and Reflection This week, notice how many things you do are initiated by vedana (feeling tone). In the midst of reaching, doing, speaking, or thinking, see if you can identify the initial vedana that triggered that action. Was it the subtle impression of pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral? What happens to the impulse to act when you connect with its vedana? This talk is also presented in video here: https://seattleinsight.org/Talks/Talk/TalkID/1212

Buddhist Essentials: The Four Noble Truths (Talk 1 of 2) (Lauren Wilson)

Vedana, Talk 1 (Tim Geil)

Practice and Reflection Notice when the mind is gripped by wanting or not wanting. Underneath all the thoughts and stories, connect with the basic quality of pleasant or unpleasant. Try to distinguish between your engagement (thoughts, preferences, and emotions) and vedana itself. Acknowledge the vedana and meet the experience with compassion instead of resistance. Can your happiness be freed from the quality of vedana (pleasant, unpleasant, neutral)? This talk is also presented in video here: https://seattleinsight.org/Talks/Talk/TalkID/1205

Contact, Talk 3: Releasing Into Stillness (Tim Geil)

Practice and Reflection Try this exercise when the mind is at ease, receptive, and still. Release into each moment of sense contact. Release the stories, impulses, and labels that arise with that contact. Simply rest in the knowing of each moment. Now, invite a deeper release of the idea of you experiencing this contact. What if the idea of “me” didn’t need to be present to be aware? With curiosity and innocence, allow the essence of awareness to simply, directly know. Let the sense of “me” rest, soften, dissolve.

Contact, Talk 2: The World We Create (Tim Geil)

Practice and Reflection We are constantly creating our reality from a moment of sense contact. This manufactured world defines how we think, feel and act. Practice seeing through this illusionary world by returning to the direct contact of your senses. Ask, what is my mind adding to this contact? What other points of contact are present, especially ones that don’t trigger reactivity? What is the overall state of mind and emotions? How does that state distort my interpretation of my senses?
