Whenever I run a day course or start a weekend course, I always give a talk revising the principles of meditation. The talks cover such topics as various techniques, the Hindrances and the Factors of Enlightenment. Although these talks always range around the same topics, they are all variations on a theme.

I thought to put some on the website in case meditators find them useful either to listen to when they need some encouragement to continue their daily practice or should want to spend a day on personal retreat, a talk of this nature would be a timely reminder of their practice.
