The Freedom to Choose Something Different with Pema Chödrön | Integrative Medicine | Scoop.it
In The Freedom to Choose Something Different, Pema Chödrön examines and illuminates this nebulous process, clearly identifying where and when you have the opportunity to change your habitual response patterns. . . to choose something different. In this eight-part video course, Pema personally walks you through the landscape of these internal thunderstorms and guides you through the tools to cultivate inner freedom.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I've listened to hours of Pema's lectures.  Enlightening! 8-)

Lived by Love

Lived by Love | Integrative Medicine | Scoop.it

Soften and open in the heart. Notice that you are alright right now: Listen to your body telling your brain that you are basically OK. Feel the fullness that is already here, all the perceptions and thoughts and feelings pop-pop-popping in this moment of consciousness. Feel the buoying currents of nature and life, waves of gifts from over 3 billion years of evolution on our blue and green pebble. Look around and see objects, including your own hands and body, and consider the unfailing generosity of the material realm, blossoming for over 12 billion years from a seed of light.

Live Webcasts: Mind and Life XXVII - Craving, Desire, and Addiction | The Office of His Holiness The Dalai Lama

The offical website for The Office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of Tibet


There will be live webcasts of "Mind and Life XXVII - Craving, Desire, and Addiction" from Dharamsala, India on October 28 - November 1, 2013. The conference will focus its attention on craving, desire, and addiction, as these are among the most pressing causes of human suffering. By bringing contemplative practitioners and scholars from Buddhist and Christian traditions together with a broad array of scientific researchers in the fields of desire and addiction, hopefully new understandings will arise that may ultimately lead to improved treatment of the root causes of craving and its many manifestations.
