A series of intimate conversations with cultural, artistic, and philosophical luminaries to explore matters of the heart in our precarious times. In addition, check out the In the Deep mini-casts, which feature Catherine’s talks from her public events.
This is another archival session of Dharma Dialogues with Catherine Ingram, recorded in Malibu, California in 2005. It’s called Proper Identification.
A session of Dharma Dialogues recorded in about 2004 in Santa Monica, California. Although this was produced on other media formats long ago, this is the first time for a podcast format and has been re-mastered for sound quality.
The Strength to Love
This podcast was originally recorded in April 2003 in Santa Monica, California. It was a time in when the US had just invaded Iraq. We have re-mastered the sound recording for this podcast though it was published on other formats years ago. The title is taken from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s book The Strength to Love.
Hope and Fear
This session with Catherine was recorded in Santa Monica, California in September of 2002, twenty years prior to the podcast upload of today’s date. It was originally produced on CDs and later on MP3s. We have remastered the sound and offer it as a prescient discussion for facing the threats of our time.
Conditioned in Freedom
This podcast is a recording from a Dharma Dialogues session with Catherine that originally occurred in Ojai, California in 2009. In years past it was produced on CD and MP3 and has now been re-mastered for use as a podcast. Although some of the references are cultural or news events from that time, Catherine’s message in these conversations is timeless. Just as neurotic thought can become a conditioned habit, so can the experience of clear and simple awareness.
Qualities of Awakened Awareness
A public talk Catherine gave on Maui in January of 2010. In it she elaborates on seven qualities that naturally occur when one’s mind is at ease and clear. These qualities form the basis of Catherine’s second book, Passionate Presence, which was published in 2003.
Brings me peace, comfort, and joy
Catherine is one of the best dharma teachers alive now. We are so lucky to have intimate access to her wisdom and compassion in these podcasts and in her zoom sessions. She gives me hope and inspiration with every answer to live a meaningful and peaceful life.
Brilliant dharma teacher
Catherine Ingram is the real deal, a dharma teacher in the truest sense, and deeply empathetic and human.Even when I disagree with her, I always get value from listening to her very articulate analysis of our world and our place in it, and how we can become more accepting, gentle and loving human beings.
Recommend for Sanity
When I joined my first Buddhist sangha in the early 90s, I started hearing the word “freedom” being used in conversation, spiritual freedom that is, as if people’s goal was to achieve this in their practice. I remember saying to someone then that I’d settle for sanity. Well, I don’t remember how I got introduced to Catherine’s Dharma Dialogues, but I drove to Berkeley to see her a few times, and listen to her still. Kind of like a security blanket woven with impermanent yarn. I appreciate her embodied presence, yes, even by podcast, and her voice is so easy to hear, and her message couldn’t be simpler, and yet, and yet….
