2020-03-04 From the Ordinary Habitual Mind to the Buddha Mind 16: Working with Our Psychological Conditioning 3 62:28
  Donald Rothberg
We begin by pointing to how combining traditional Buddhist training with transforming psychological and social conditioning and unresolved material suggests the contours of a contemporary path of awakening. We then identify some of the main areas of the contemporary “shadow,” of unconscious, unresolved conditioning and developmental wounds, such as anger, fear, death, shame, conflict, trauma, grief, sexuality, and so on. We then give a “map” of four stages in the transformation of the shadow (particularly in a meditative context), starting with finding ways to access the shadow, then learning to be with and explore the shadow, then transforming the shadow, and then integrating the shadow work with daily life.

2020-03-03 Embodied Awareness: Postures and All Activities (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 54:18
  Eugene Cash
We explored how to practice with an embodied awareness 24/7. Practice using a full awareness that allows us to be mindful through the knowing our body experientially veiled of thoughts, ideas and commentary. This direct knowing is proprioceptive, kinesthetic, often referred to as felt sense knowing.
