"The Course Experience - After" from Realizing Change
By Podcasts on 8/12/2015

“I have practiced Vipassana meditation every day for three months now. The rewards are great. The change in my life is enormous. I used to drink alcohol every day to survive the stress, now I can live without it. I was having a lot of trouble with my son, but since I learned not to react, not to get too angry, the relationship has taken a positive turnaround...”

This audio podcast is Chapter 5 of a twelve-part series from the upcoming audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington. It examines after a course how to build on what’s been gained and keep growing on the path.

"The Course Experience - During" from Realizing Change
By Podcasts on 7/21/2015

People sometimes feel that meditation is an introverted and rather selfish activity. “What about the ills of the world while you are contemplating your navel!” Vipassana is a self centered technique in the sense that only by working correctly on ourselves can we really be in a position to help others. But the whole thrust of the meditation is towards dissolving the false ego we have created and which now controls us. Little by little, as we transcend selfish egotism, we naturally want to turn the inner-directed energy and insight outwards. In this way we complete the circle of self and others.

This audio podcast is Chapter 4 of a twelve-part series from the upcoming audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington. It examines the course program detailing how it helps students get the most from their retreat.

"The Course Experience - Before" from Realizing Change
By Podcasts on 6/15/2015

"I hung the brochure with the course schedule on the wall of my room, and often looked at it in disbelief. Counting the meditation periods, I kept thinking, is that really ten hours? Are they nuts? Am I nuts? What am I doing here? Why am I doing this to myself? Something had drawn me to the place, certainly, but as the ten-day course geared up to begin, I still could not pinpoint what it was."

This audio podcast is Chapter 3 of a twelve-part series from the upcoming audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington. It investigates why many students have travelled thousands of miles to attend the 10-day vipassana retreat and how they came to be there.

What Is Vipassana Meditation? from Realizing Change
By Podcasts on 5/21/2015

This audio podcast is Chapter 2 of a twelve-part series from the upcoming audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington.

Meditation means different things to different people. In the West the word commonly carries a very loose meaning connected with “thinking things through,” “pondering,” “reflecting.” It can also have associations with prayer or religious contemplation, relaxation and altered states of consciousness. Interest in “meditation” has been growing steadily since the 1960s but the breadth of definition can be confusing. It covers such a range of activities which use the same term in very different ways. To lots of people it remains a hazy area, even weird. What’s it all about?

Challenge and Change from Realizing Change
By Podcasts on 4/13/2015

This audio podcast is Chapter 1 of a twelve-part series from the upcoming audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington. Alongside an account of the technique, each chapter is a sampling of the voices of meditators from different communities: young and old, female and male, simple and sophisticated. Some contributors’ names have been altered by request. Each has his or her own story—how they came to Vipassana, what they’ve learned, the struggles, the gains; all humanity at the water’s edge, finding common refreshment in a practice focused on peace, happiness, compassion and loving kindness.

Dhamma Podcasts from Pariyatti.org: Talk and Q&A from Dr. Paul Fleischman (Weyhauser Chapel at Macalester College, St. Paul, MN - June 25, 2001)
By Podcasts on 1/14/2015

Cultivating Inner Peace
a lecture by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

Even in the context of modern life, inner peace can be cultivated, and can grow amply in your life.  To facilitate inner peace, meditation is most effective when it is realistic, pragmatic, and free from dogma or cult.  In his talk, Dr. Fleischman will discuss the practice of meditation based on non-sectarian, universal truths.  This practice can be explained rationally and unfolds into a harmonious way of life, enhancing love, compassion, joy and peace. 

A question-and-answer session follows the talk at 1:06:07 of the audio file.
