This recording contains a guided contemplation on the complexity and richness of life that is often overlooked, especially the day-to-day conveniences we take for granted, as well as the blessing of having found the Buddhist Path of Awakening.

Right Relationship in the 21st Century

Continuing the discussion of Right Livelihood as manifesting in a culture much more complex than what the Buddha knew, this dialogue focuses on how relationship dynamics relate to the three characteristics the Buddha emphasized, that is, impermanence, dissatisfaction and interdependence.  Modern research regarding attachment security and how levels of anxious arousal degrade a couple’s ability to negotiate conflict was explored.  We also discussed modern relational psychoanalysis as related to mutual interpersonal influence.
