This teaching begins with a public talk on The Core of Self Worth. Many people suffer from a tragic poverty of spirit that leaves them with a negative self image, chronic dissatisfaction and even depression. In this public talk, Lama Kathy Wesley teaches that from a Buddhist perspective, these feelings are based on an erroneous viewpoint. Buddha taught that the mind itself - beneath the negative thoughts – has the basic character of wisdom, goodness, awareness, love and compassion. In this public talk, Lama Kathy explains our failure to recognize our inherent nature and how the path of Buddhist practice helps us recognize this nature.

The central theme of this weekend teaching is Aspiration and Inspiration. In four talks, Lama Kathy provides guidance for practitioners who have stalled in their practice after years of Shamatha meditation. In the first talk, Lama Kathy explains that pacification alone is not liberation and that aspiration and inspiration are the bridge to move from an interest in pacifying the mind to an interest in awakening. She explains how the three jewels and the three roots provide a source of inspiration. In the next three talks, she explains a verse about faith from Guru Rinpoche and then talks about several practices of aspiration and inspiration including refuge, compassion meditation, and guru yoga. She also introduces inspiring people, places, thoughts, prayers and words. Lama Kathy’s teaching is accessible, engaging and, of course, inspiring. These talks include frequent question and answer sessions. Five talks on one MP3CD.
  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have “MP3” or “MP3-WMA” clearly marked on the front of it.

  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
