2021-01-17 The Deepest Peace: Contemplations From a Season of Stillness 1:29:53
Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, Kaishin Unique Holland
This talk is a meditation, reading, and conversation between Zenju Sensei and Kaishin Unique Holland, Zen practitioner and educator, on Sensei’s latest publication, The Deepest Peace: Contemplations From a Season of Stillness (Parallax Press). Deep peace is possible. Do we resist peace for fear of passivity? Please join us as Zenju Sensei shares her reflections on the possibility of inner peace despite the chaos that surrounds us. “There is a peace that appears without effort. Like the desert filling up your eyes. It appears like snow, wind or rain. The simple willingness to be close to the earth will open ground for the deepest peace. It arrives on its own if we let it.”- from The Deepest Peace

2020-12-12 Mindfully Confronting Racism: Buddhism and the Inner Work of Racial Justice 1:29:13
Rhonda Magee, Bhikkhu Analayo
In a time of painful political and racial division, polarization, and the slow drift toward dystopia, what do Buddhist thought and practice offer us in our efforts to deepen wellbeing, understanding, engagement, and ethical action? In this practice and inquiry session, freely offered in support of BCBS, Bhikkhu Anālayo and Rhonda Myozen Magee explore how mindfulness can increase our capacity to address racism and other socially-constructed oppressions and vulnerabilities in our times.

2020-11-23 Dharma Transmission: A Conversation with Joseph Goldstein and Dawn Scott 1:29:40
Joseph Goldstein, Dawn Scott, William Edelglass
How are we called to transmit and receive Buddhist wisdom and practice today? This is an especially important question for contemporary students and those who themselves are training to become dharma teachers and their mentors. What is the significance of the mentor-mentee relationship? In what ways might American-convert Buddhism be transformed as the community of students and dharma teachers becomes more diverse? From its beginning, Buddhism has emphasized that impermanence is a mark of all existence; it is not surprising that as it has been transmitted to different cultures, across vast geographical regions over more than two millennia, Buddhism itself has been constantly changing. As Buddhadharma is transmitted and transformed by a new generation, how do we remain grounded in the liberating wisdom and practices of the traditions we have inherited even as we directly address the turbulence and urgency of our times, and share these teachings with an ever-growing and changing community of practitioners? An evening of meditation and conversation as we explore these questions with BCBS co-founder Joseph Goldstein, BCBS teacher Dawn Scott, and BCBS Director of Studies William Edelglass.

2019-07-10 Love in the Time of Extinction: Dharma Practice, Climate, Ecology and Non-Violent Civil Disobedience 65:00
Yanai Postelnik
How practices of awakening and compassion converge with conscientiously choosing to disobey the law, in responding to the climate and ecological emergency we face. What does dharma practice look like in the face of a Climate and Ecological emergency? How do the Buddha’s wisdom teachings and compassionate practices empower us to meet this crisis? How do we keep our heart open while engaging with our inner responses and the outer situation?
