Peace Is a Personal Encounter: Juan and Kathleen Mascaró (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

July 13, 2020

Chapter 2 - Peace Is a Personal Encounter: Juan and Kathleen Mascaró
from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

"The possibility of a life devoted to personal peacefulness that then atomizes outward to others is conveyed from one person to another. For a sustaining image of such a life, I am indebted to Juan and Kathleen Mascaró. They drew me like a magnet into their world. This is how I met them."

The Quest for Inner Peace (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

July 06, 2020

Chapter 1 - The Quest for Inner Peace
from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

The cultivation of inner peace is as rational and orderly as any other aspect of the human condition, and pertains equally to all of us despite our differing starting gates, nervous systems, and life experiences. Out of my own life, and the lives of teachers and friends and those I have been privileged to know professionally, and out of the lives of great souls who left their footprints for us to follow, I would like to provide pragmatic, concrete guidance toward inner peace and radiant harmony. My examples will be drawn from real people, whole lives filled with the dynamic of human suffering and relief. I will tell the stories of people I know (often disguised or over lapped with other people to preserve privacy), or people whose lives are richly documented in historical record.

Spiritual Emotions from Insights from an Ancient Tradition

April 23, 2020

Addresses by S.N. Goenka and four others from the second "Insights from an Ancient Tradition" conference, held at the Vipassana Meditation Center (Dhamma Dhara) in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, USA, September 3 - 4, 2000. The MP3s include questions and answers at the end of each talk. The conference followed a ten-day Vipassana retreat. It was designed so that participants could explore at the intellectual level what they had experienced while meditating.

The four presenters at the conference were all Vipassana meditators who live engaged professional lives and who serve as assistants or teachers of Vipassana, appointed by Mr. Goenka. The revered Teacher of Vipassana, who was visiting America for the first time in nine years, had just completed his participation in the Millenium Peace Summit at the United Nations.

Meditating in Troubled Times

Meditating in Troubled Times

This talk was originally given to an audience of Old Students (i.e. those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana meditation course as taught by S.N. Goenka) in Cologne, Germany (2017). Accordingly, it contains language and concepts that are familiar to Old Students, and it may not make sense to someone who is not familiar with this terminology.

Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation (University of Colorado, Boulder)

December 14, 2016

Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation
a lecture by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.
delivered at the University of Colorado, Boulder

This talk was originally written in response to an invitation from multiple sponsors at Yale University. Various versions of this talk were given at Northeastern University, New York University, The University of Washington, Seattle; The University of British Columbia, Vancouver; the University of Colorado, Boulder; Harvard University, and Brown University, as well as at Dhamma Patapa Vipassana Center, Georgia.

This particular version of the talk was recorded at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is meant as an introductory talk that uses no technical language, and that contains explanations that require no previous biological knowledge. (Please understand that due to recording problems, the question-and-answer session ends abruptly.)

Another recording of this talk from the University of Washington, Seattle is geared more towards a university audience. It is a little more technical, and may perhaps be appreciated more by someone familiar with biological understanding. It looks upon meditation from a biological standpoint.

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.
