James Baraz's Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center
James Baraz
I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet.

2018-02-10 The Journey of Awakening- From Personal to the Universal (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 59:33
The journey of awakening often begins with learning to open up to all the hidden places inside. Facing our demons, learning to accept and eventually embrace the whole package of who we are. That's when the process gets truly interesting-when we move to the bigger perspective tuning into the awareness that can hold it all.

2018-02-04 Transforming Suffering into Happiness (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:53
Every moment has flavor tone of experience: pleasant, unpleasant or neutral. Typically, we react without thinking and act from attachment, aversion or delusion-the seeds of suffering. When we bring mindfulness to the moment we have the choice to respond with non-greed, non-hatred and non-delusion. Those are the seed of true happiness.
