Thich Nhat Hanh: 2012 Dublin (Apr 2012)
Thich Nhat Hanh is always an inspiration for mindfulness, humility and compassion. We forget in the modern world that waking to the here and now is a service to the world, not another entry on a spiritual CV. We wake up because we love ourselves, the world and all beings.

Who Are You… Really? / Gangaji (Apr 2011)
Gangaji is one of the clearest teachers around, and here she asks the deepest question — who are you? — a question when asked sincerely wakes us up to the truth of our being. It is our thoughts about who we are that blocks us from awakening to our true nature. (Thanks Cpji)
Mooji: The Embodiment of 'Yes' (Jun 2011)
An important message not to put off the dedication to Truth. When we start to spiritually wake up, the mind comes up with a million excuses — "I will start focusing on Truth when…", but we usually end up in indefinite postponement. Stop the excuses and dedicate now! (Thanks Cpji)

Gregg Braden presents a controversial video on a tumour disappearing in 3 minutes using mind-heart synergy. I personally believe this is possible and accept Braden's perspective on this one, but also concede skeptics' assertions that ultrasound scans can be manipulated.

Teachings of Babaji (Jun 2007)
Hypnotic chanting of Om Namah Shivaya to images of Babaji. Many ask whether this is "the" Babaji that appeared to Yogananda. The point is that it does not matter. The essence of Babaji is the same in all of us… we are all Babaji, but that identity is hidden to different degrees in different people.
