Teacher: Tim Geil
Date: 2016-11-29
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



The Wanting Mind forms a central pattern to our suffering and is a critical area of practice. Becoming very intimate with how Wanting reveals itself in your life also reveals a fundamental expression of suffering. In this talk, we explore the different ways Wanting appears in the suttas and how steadiness of mind, intention, and sincerity allow us to meet Wanting with the Dharma.


Try this practice of observing wanting. Choose several, non-critical, non-urgent times when wanting arises during your day. Notice what wanting is like in the body and mind. Be truly curious. Reflection: Can wanting end through acting on wanting?
