Guy Armstrong's Dharma Talks at Insight Meditation Society - Forest Refuge
Guy Armstrong
I have always enjoyed working with practitioners who are continuing to deepen their practice. In the many long retreats I teach at both IMS and Spirit Rock, I feel free to pass on the deepest pointings I’ve found in the teachings of the Buddha in the Pali Canon. Those are my guiding lights in practice and understanding.

2019-06-28 Emptiness and Karma 66:01
It may seem that the Buddha's teaching on emptiness is incompatible with his teaching on karma, which connects the result of an action with the same being who performed it. But actually, the two teachings need each other to make sense.

2019-06-24 The Aggregates Are Empty 61:58
The five aggregates of form, feeling, perception, formations, and consciousness are empty in two ways. There is no ongoing self in the center, which points to the emptiness of self. All the aggregates are insubstantial, which points to the emptiness of all phenomena.
