2017-10-18 Finding Peace in the Chaos 41:13
  Shell Fischer
"If you don't become the ocean, you will be seasick every day." ~ Leonard Cohen - During this talk, Shell will be offering a variety of different mindfulness methods we can use to approach and re-discover the calm, peace, and ease of equanimity -- or balanced awareness -- in the face of what are often called the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows that make up all the days and moments of our lives. Shell will explore how, through our meditation practice, we can learn to accept and welcome each moment -- life as it IS -- with as much peace, compassion, and kindness as we can muster, without falling into despair and resignation, and without making anything wrong -- especially ourselves.

2017-10-18 Bridging Separation 65:06
  Pat Coffey
Bridging separation is the activity necessary for the survival of our species and the biosphere. Buddhism encourages us to find ways to bridge our internal fragmentation AND bridge all external divides. How can we resist vigorously those we deem involved in causing harm yet not put them out of our hearts? How can we utilize the skills of our practice to bridge the separation we feel with others not like us.
