Thursday the 26th August,2010 - Dharma Discourse by Jeff Oliver.
Jeff has given a number of talks fat AriyasomVilla over the last year or so. Previously he practised both as a monk for 6 years, and as a layman under the tutelige of revered Burmese master U Janaka in the Mahasi Sayadaw lineage. More recently he has been practising with the Burmese master Sayadaw U Tejaniya.

What shifts in attitude are required, or are useful? …..
