This is a dharma talk I gave on August 8, 2017 at IMSB in Mountain View, Ca, on the topic of Skillfully Recognizing Empty Appearance. Though the Buddhist notion of emptiness can be quite challenging for Western Buddhist practitioners, the rich teachings on emptiness offer a clear path to apply wise view, wise action and skillful means in daily life.

Listen to two talks I delivered at Marin Sangha on non-attachment—certainly the most misunderstood and maligned Buddhist ideal. This first talk deconstructs the term into its various meanings and explores the philosophical implications of non-attachment and identity clinging through the Buddha’s teachings from the Pāli Canon and those of several modern-day Buddhist teachers.
 
This dharma talk was delivered at Marin Sangha on May 31, 2015. I was asked to talk about the Buddhist psychology of addiction. The talk covers quite a bit of ground including childhood trauma and its physiological and psychological role in teen/adult addiction. The talk also has instructions for landing in the aliveness of physicality as it is.

This is a dharma talk I gave at marin Sangha on November 5, 2017. The topic of the talk is Bodhicitta: a dedicated, heart-felt desire to fully awaken for the benefit of all other beings. Bodhicitta reminds us that every moment is an invitation to awaken all beings by motivating ourselves to engage in other-regarding behaviors. This is how we take on the responsibility of decreasing the mass of human suffering by seeding the world with at least one more quiescent, wise and compassionate perso ...
 
This is the first of two dharma talks given at Marin Sangha in June 2014. In this talk, Lisa Dale Miller refutes the controversial claim by Jon Kabat-Zinn and others, that mindfulness-based interventions (MBSR and the like) deliver a "universal dharma"; an accurate depiction of traditional Buddhist meditation practices and implicitly imparts the profound ethical and philosophical aspects of the actual Buddhadharma.

The first path factor of the Buddha’s Eightfold Noble Path is right view, also known as wise understanding. Though right view is the first of the Eightfold path factors, it represents the fruition of the succeeding seven path factors. Right view and right intention (the second path factor) together encompass supreme training in wisdom; a training designed to awaken the faculty of penetrative understanding—that which knows things as they truly are. The Buddha defined right view as understandi ...

Welcome to Will To Wisdom - A podcast exploring perspectives on living well. When we think of philosophy, grand questions come to mind: Does God exist? Do we have free will? What's the relationship between mind and matter? That kind of thing. What philosophers tend not to think so much about nowadays is what it takes to live a good life. This wasn't always the case. Philosophers in ancient times viewed the question of the good life as one of the subject's most fundamental. Will To Wisdom see ...
