2017-03-07 Money 41:24
  Kim Allen
Kim Allen gave the third talk in a speaker series titled "Everyday Dhamma." She discussed how money is an important part of our life, as well as a potent realm for practice. Much of what the Buddha said about wealth and money was about our relationship to money, because this is where our suffering and freedom lies. More specifically, we can easily have an unwholesome relationship to our wealth. For example, we can become miserly and crave even more wealth. Or we can establish a wholesome relationship with our wealth, such as supporting our family, our friends, and the Dhamma. In this way, we can relate to money with wisdom and generosity, instead of grasping and fear.

2017-03-07 Guided Metta Meditation Toward Groups 30:25
  Shaila Catherine
This 30-minute guided metta meditation works with metta toward ourselves, an easy person, and then groups of beings: males/females, enlightened/unenlightened, lower realms (hell realms and animal realms)/ human communities/higher celestial realms of the gods. The aim is to gradually expand the field of metta until it is unbounded, immeasurable, without boarders, barriers, or exceptions. Meditators may use these traditional groupings, or adapt the idea of groups/areas with alternative ways they develop to group beings.
