Overviews of Teaching and Practice offered in two styles: the first a traditional but wonderfully lucid survey of the Buddha’s core teachings, the second taking a “modern” approach, introduces these by looking at the human needs and qualities addressed by different teachings and practices.​​

A Path with Heart

Focused on Meditation and Mindfulness Practices – the first three of these offer different but consistent takes on the Buddha’s quintessential discourse, the Satipatthana Sutta (often translated as “the four foundations of mindfulness”). The last looks at a companion teaching, the Anapanasati Sutta (“on mindfulness of the breath).
