The missing element in Manifestation philosophy and using our thoughts to create is what thoughts really get us where we are going? If our emotions are vibrations and these vibrations are creating our reality, what do we do with all this stress, fear and anxiety? Ahuma Institute teaches that you are always receiving information that brings you into greater alignment with your Highest Purpose and thus shows you what thoughts will create your greatest future. We call this information source the Internal Guidance System, or IGS. Each of us has our own Internal Guidance System located in our bodies. Zen DeBrucke in three introductory video's shows you, your IGS and gives you a physical experience of it.
Your IGS (sometimes called God, Spirit, or the Divine) has all the information you need to guide your thoughts regarding life decisions, large and small. Learning to use this new consciousness technology will enable you to know what you truly desire and what you are here to learn.

A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis by Sigmund Freud. Audiobook
Introduction to Psychoanalysis or Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis (German: Vorlesungen zur Einführung in die Psychoanalyse) is a set of lectures given by Sigmund Freud 1915-17 (published 1916-17), which became the most popular and widely translated of his works. The 28 lectures offered an elementary stock-taking of his views of the unconscious, dreams, and the theory of neuroses at the time of writing, as well as offering some new technical material to the more advanced reader.
Some of the positions outlined here would subsequently be altered or revised in Freud's later work; and in 1932 he offered a second set of seven lectures numbered from 29-35 - New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis - as complement (though these were never read aloud and featured a different, sometimes more polemical style of presentation.)
In his three-part Introductory Lectures, by beginning with a discussion of Freudian slips in the first part, moving on to dreams in the second, and only tackling the neuroses in the third, Freud succeeded in presenting his ideas as firmly grounded in the common-sense world of everyday experience. Making full use of the lecture-form, Freud was able to engage in a lively polemic with his audience, constantly engaging the reader/listener in a discussion, so as to take on their views and deal with their possible objections. The work allows the reader acquainted with the concepts of Freud to trace the logic of his arguments afresh and follow his conclusions, backed as they were with examples from life and from clinical practice. But Freud also identified elements of his theory requiring further elaboration, as well as bringing in new material, for example on symbolism and primal fantasies, taking up with the latter a train of thought he would continue in his re-working of The Wolfman.
In the New Introductory Lectures, those on dreams and anxiety/instinctual life offered clear accounts of Freud's latest thinking, while the role of the Superego received an update in lecture 31. More popular treatments of occultism, psychoanalytic applications and its status as a science helped complete the volume.
Karl Abraham considered the lectures elementary in the best sense, for presenting the core elements of psychoanalysis in an accessible way.
G. Stanley Hall in his preface to the 1920 American translation wrote:
These twenty-eight lectures to laymen are elementary and almost conversational. Freud sets forth with a frankness almost startling the difficulties and limitations of psychoanalysis, and also describes its main methods and results as only a master and originator of a new school of thought can do. These discourses are at the same time simple and almost confidential, and they trace and sum up the results of thirty years of devoted and painstaking research. While they are not at all controversial, we incidentally see in a clearer light the distinctions between the master and some of his distinguished pupils.
Freud himself was typically self-deprecating about the finished work, describing it privately as coarse work, intended for the multitude.
Six Ideas From Eastern Philosophy

Eastern philosophy has all the same goals as Western philosophy: it too seeks to make us wiser and more serene. However, the way it goes about its task shows a great deal more variety and imagination: in the East, there are lessons to be learnt in tea ceremonies, in flower arranging, in the repair of vases and in the ritual contemplation of rivers. An introduction to six of the most fascinating concepts of Eastern philosophy.

“Eastern Philosophy has always had a very similar goal to Western philosophy: that of making us wiser, less agitated, more thoughtful and readier to appreciate our lives. However, the way it has gone about this has been intriguingly different. In the East, Philosophy has taught its lessons via tea drinking ceremonies, walks in bamboo forests, contemplations of rivers and ritualised flower arranging sessions. Here are a few ideas to offer us the distinctive wisdom of a continent and enrich our notions of what philosophy might really be…”

“It has become almost impossible to say, ‘I don’t care about future generations,’ ‘I don’t care about poverty in the midst of plenty’ and ‘I don’t care if there are 200 million climate refugees in 2030. Altruism should not be relegated to the realm of noble Utopian thinking maintained by a few big-hearted, naïve people. On the contrary, it is a determining factor of the quality of our existence, now and to come. We must have the insight to recognize this and the audacity to proclaim it.The altruism revolution is on its way. Let us all be part of it.”

Xen and the Art of Embedded Systems Virtualization - Stefano Stabellini, Aporeto
Hypervisors are becoming more and more widespread in embedded environments, from automotive to medical and avionics. Their use case is different from traditional server and desktop virtualization, and so are their requirements. This talk will explain why hypervisors are used in embedded, and the unique challenges posed by these environments to virtualization technologies.
Xen, a popular open source hypervisor, was born to virtualize x86 Linux systems for the data center. It is now the leading open source hypervisor for ARM embedded platforms. The presentation will show how the ARM port of Xen differs from its x86 counterpart. It will go through the fundamental design decisions that made Xen a good choice for ARM embedded virtualization. The talk will explain the implementation of key features such as device assignment and interrupt virtualization.
About Stefano Stabellini
Stefano Stabellini serves as virtualization expert in a new dynamic team at Aporeto. Previously he was Senior Principal Software Engineer at Citrix, leading a small group of Open Source engineers working on Xen Project.Stefano has been involved in Xen development since 2007, focusing on several different projects, spanning from Qemu to Xen and the Linux kernel. He created libxenlight in November 2009 and started the Xen port to ARM with virtualization extensions with Ian Campbell in 2011. Currently he maintains Xen support in Qemu, libxenlight, and Xen on ARM in Linux.
Introductory video PEDC
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has identified Central University of Haryana for setting up National Resource Centre for Developing MOOCS on “Personal-Emotional Development and Counselling”. The centre is being set up under Pt. Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission for Teachers and Teaching. NRC will develop the Annual Orientation Programme of higher education faculty in the discipline. This training will be imparted as MOOCs using SWAYAM platform and would focus on latest developments in the subject, pedagogical improvements and methodologies for transacting revised curriculum. Through SWAYAM platform, we would introduce to our teachers to those pedagogical tools that are locally rooted but globally relevant for their subject. These tools will help students develop research skills and interdisciplinary thinking. Idea is not to make it a stand-alone topic rather bring it to the core of the essential understanding of the teaching fraternity. We would provide the teachers with a large number of exercises, problems, questions and discussion on case study, which they can use to help their students to develop self-learning skills, conceptual understanding of topics taught and, at the same time, develop awareness of the effectiveness of control on their emotions.

The Four Virtues of a Leader:
Navigating the Hero’s Journey Through Risk to Results
by Eric Kaufmann
An inspiring resource for anyone seeking to inspire others,
build teamwork, and successfully realize their vision.
About the book:
When we see leaders from the outside, we are often focused on their power, authority, and status . But from the inside, true leaders succeed through cultivating the same essential qualities found in the classic hero’s journey .With The Four Virtues of a Leader, top executive coach Eric Kaufmann presents a must-read guide to help you awaken and amplify the fundamental competencies that every successful leader embodies. “A leader influences others through their presence, actions, and communication,” writes Kaufmann. “That means each of us, no matter what our title or job, can be a leader.”
He offers powerful insights and field tested guidance for developing the four cornerstones of good leadership:
1. Focus that combines self-awareness with vision
2. Courage to move toward what you'd rather avoid
3. Grit for persevering through fatigue and discouragement toward your long term goals
4. Faith to overcome doubt and stay fully committed to your work
About the author:
Eric Kaufmann guides leaders to make better decisions and achieve better results. He has consulted for hundreds of leaders, including executives and teams at Sony, T-Mobile, Genentech, Alcon Labs, Teradata, and Tedx. He is the founder and president of Sagatica, Inc. and serves on the board of the San Diego Zen Center. He is also a scuba diving instructor, licensed hypnotherapist, and lifelong practitioner of Zen meditation. He once spent a year meditating in a cabin he built himself in a remote area of New Mexico. In the following TedX talk, Kaufmann shares about this experience and how it relates to his leadership work. For more, visit sagatica.com

Learn Tai Chi Online with Jet Li's Online Academy - Lesson 1
Jet Li's Taiji Zen Online Academy teaches Tai Chi Chuan with a unique principles based approach. It is well-suited for beginners learning Tai Chi as well as more advanced students.
This video will teach you the kinetic concept of Péng as part of the Taiji Zen Online Academy curriculum. It is the first of the 8 Tai Chi Chuan kinetic concepts which together with the 5 steps make up the 13 fundamentals of Tai Chi Chuan.
Péng is an energy of continuous outward expansion. It pushes out in all directions to create a protective buffer around the core. It's often described as the fundamental energy of Tai Chi Chuan, and applies to all Tai Chi Chuan movement.
Imagine that you are surrounded by a bubble of energy that can literally bounce off any incoming force.
In this lesson you are going to learn about a Taiji Zen Essential known as Péng, which means Expansion. Now Péng is the first in a series of Tai Chi Chuan Essentials that you are going to be learning in each Duàn, along with a movement that is going to express that Essential.
But Péng is not so much a movement or a technique, as it is a Kinetic Concept. It is an energy that you are going to learn how to put in any movement that you want.
To help make it easier for you to learn each movement by yourself, I am going to break down each movement into three pieces.
We are going to look at the footwork first, and then in the next pass we are going to talk about the hands and the waist and the third time through I am going to talk about the energy and the feeling that you have with each movement.
Let's take a look at the footwork first. Stand with your feet together, hands relax by your sides, the knees are slightly soft, the hips are a little bit soft and your head is floating up towards the sky.
Now shift all the weight over to your right foot and your left foot floats up a little bit, then steps out to the side about shoulder width. Then evenly distribute the weight over each feet.
Both hands float up into the air, about shoulder level. Then everything gets heavy, the elbows sink down, the hands sink down, the knees bend and the hips sink down as well. Palms are pressing down right about to hip height.
One: Turn and Hold the Ball
I shift my weight onto the left foot and pivot on the right heel to the right, about 90 degrees. Now my weight right here is about 90% on the left foot and only about 10% on that right heel.
Two: Hold the Ball in Empty Step
I now shift my weight onto the right foot, bringing the left foot into an empty step. So there is no weight on this left foot and it is just tapping the ground right in front of the right.
Three: Step out
From here my left foot steps out, just at an angle by the other side of that round brown circle on the front part of your mat, landing heel first. In fact, whenever you step out like this you land with your heel first, but very lightly so there is not a whole lot of weight on that front foot.
I sink down into my stance and my front toes pivot in about 30 degrees. Still about 60% of my weight is back on the right foot.
Four: Sink and Gather
My feet and my weight pretty much stay in the same place. I simply sink down into the step, just kind of get down into it here.
Five: Expand Forward
I now shift my weight into the front foot, turning my waist as I go and as I finish I sink down into the stance and my right toes pivot inwards slightly.
Back to Neutral
I shift my weight back, step by side by side and let my hands float down as my knee straighten, my spine straightens, my head flows up.
The weight shifts back over to the right foot and I step my feet together and that's the entire sequence of Péng.
This time through we are going to take a look at what the hands and arms, basically the upper body, is doing.
One: Turn and Hold the Ball
So I am rotating my body with my left leg as the axis, turning my toes out and then I am going to put my hands out into a holding the ball position.
My right hand rising up like the top of the ball, about shoulder level, my left hand coming under and cupping the bottom of the ball, hand right in front of the navel.
Two: Hold the Ball in Empty Step
Keeping my hands right where they are, I shift my weight forward and step in while my waist is turning slightly to the right.
Three: Step out
Again, the hands are staying in the same place. My left foot steps out into its position.
Four: Sink and Gather
So from this position, my hands still in the same spot I sit down into my stance, just sitting down a little bit deeper. Rotate from the waist more towards the right, letting my hands trail my body's rotation.

The personal pronoun of I, Me or Mine
Attitudes for Developing Mindfulness
We human beings have multiple ways of knowing the world, inwardly and outwardly, presumably more than, say, an earthworm.
We have more dimensions to our interior landscape. In fact, even calling it an interior landscape is not really appropriate because it implies an artificial distinction between inner and outer.
Actually, we are continually co-creating what we call the external world through our senses, and it is not quite accurate to personalize the whole thing, when the process is really quite impersonal.
So in regard to who is seeing or feeling or hearing, I encourage people to look deeply into it for themselves in meditation practice, by questioning, Who is hearing, who is feeling, who is thinking? This is a strong practice in the Zen tradition.
You inquire into the sensory phenomena themselves in the moment of their unfolding. What usually comes up is a personal pronoun, as in I am seeing. But if you ask, Who is that? you come to realize that the pronoun itself is just a thought—a very, very old habit of mind which is itself a construct, a fabrication, rather than an enduring, substantial and independent entity—the way we usually think of who I am when we pop out with our name or some information about ourselves.

Chanting the Heart Sutra (English) The Supreme Mantra Which Is Able To Relieve All Suffering.
???? (The words are on the screen so you can follow along.) The Heart Sutra is a teaching by the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of Compassion, to the monk Shariputra. It is chanted regularly by followers of Buddhism at meetings and meditation practice. Although The Heart Sutra is very brief it contains key concepts of Buddhist Philosophy. These include the skandhas, the four noble truths, the cycle of interdependence and the central concept of Mahayana Buddhism, Emptiness.
when practicing deeply the Prajna Paramita
perceives that all five skandhas are empty
and is saved from all suffering and distress.
form does not differ from emptiness,
emptiness does not differ from form.
That which is form is emptiness,
that which is emptiness form.
The same is true of feelings,
perceptions, impulses, consciousness.
all dharmas are marked with emptiness;
they do not appear or disappear,
are not tainted or pure,
do not increase or decrease.
Therefore, in emptiness no form, no feelings,
perceptions, impulses, consciousness.
No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind;
no color, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch,
no object of mind;
no realm of eyes
and so forth until no realm of mind consciousness.
No ignorance and also no extinction of it,
and so forth until no old age and death
and also no extinction of them.
No suffering, no origination,
no stopping, no path, no cognition,
also no attainment with nothing to attain.
The Bodhisattva depends on Prajna Paramita
and the mind is no hindrance;
without any hindrance no fears exist.
Far apart from every perverted view one dwells in Nirvana.
In the three worlds
all Buddhas depend on Prajna Paramita
and attain Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi.
Therefore know that Prajna Paramita
is the great transcendent mantra,
is the great bright mantra,
is the utmost mantra,
is the supreme mantra
which is able to relieve all suffering
and is true, not false.
So proclaim the Prajna Paramita mantra,
proclaim the mantra which says:
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha
gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh has been a pioneer in bringing Buddhism to the West, founding six monasteries and dozens of practice centers in America and Europe, as well as over 1,000 local mindfulness practice communities, known as ‘sanghas’.
He has built a thriving community of over 600 monks and nuns worldwide, who, together with his tens of thousands of lay students, apply his teachings on mindfulness, peace-making and community-building in schools, workplaces, businesses – and even prisons – throughout the world.
Thich Nhat Hanh, is a gentle, humble monk – the man Martin Luther King called “An Apostle of peace and nonviolence.” The media has called him “The Father of Mindfulness,” “The Other Dalai Lama” and “The Zen Master Who Fills Stadiums.”
His key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live happily in the present moment—the only way to truly develop peace, both in one’s self and in the world.
I will cultivate openness, non-discrimination, and non-attachment to views in order to transform violence, fanaticism, and dogmatism in myself and in the world.
- Excerpt from a Thích Nhất Hạnh Mindfulness Training
About Mindfulness Meditation :
Mindfulness is a modern movement, appropriated from ancient Buddhist roots. The practice of mindfulness involves being aware moment-to-moment, of one’s subjective conscious experience from a first-person perspective. When practicing mindfulness, one becomes aware of one’s stream of consciousness. The skill of mindfulness can be gradually developed using meditational practices that are described in detail in the Buddhist tradition. The Five-Aggregate Model, an ancient link between mind and body, is a helpful theoretical resource that could guide mindfulness interventions. The term mindfulness is derived from the Pali-term sati which is an essential element of Buddhist practice, including vipassana, satipatthana, and anapanasati.Mindfulness is also an attribute of consciousness long believed to promote well-being. Large population-based research studies have indicated that the idea of mindfulness is strongly correlated with well-being and perceived health. Studies have also shown that rumination and worry contribute to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, and that mindfulness-based interventions are effective in the reduction of both rumination and worry.

We make ethical or behaviour guiding right / wrong judgments all the time but have you ever wondered where Ethics comes from, what it is about and why it is important? This course provides an introduction to traditional Chinese ethical thought and focuses on the pervasive contrast in the way Chinese and Westerners think about ethical guidance or guidance concerning what is right and what is wrong, good or bad. Traditional Western orthodoxy uses the metaphor of a law -- in its most familiar popular form, the command of a supernatural being backed by a threat of eternal punishment or reward -- to explain ethical guidance. The Classical Chinese philosophers by contrast were all naturalists. They talked about ethical guidance using a path metaphor -- a natural dào.
We will look at two rival directions this natural dào model took in ancient China. The first direction views ethical paths as generated from human sources such as human history and past social practices. The other Confucian version views guidance as arising from a distinctly human guiding organ, something like a combination of our faculties of heart and mind. This organ issues the right/wrong or this/not-that judgements naturally. This internal map to moral choices branches, like a plant, as we mature. The alternative to human-based naturalism in China treated normative guidance as natural in a broader sense, such as the dào of water or one guided by what is beneficial vs harmful. Finally, we will take a brief look at a development after the classical period that resulted from the invasion of the more super-naturalist, Indo-European way of thinking about guidance -- Medieval Chinese Buddhism.
Although Chinese concepts will be the focus of our discussion, all the content of this course is intended to be accessible to beginner students. For those who are beginners in Philosophy, we will include a brief introduction to the ideas of logic that further shape the Western metaphor of a law and help us understand its role in Western ethics, science and psychology so you can better understand the different ways these two philosophical metaphors explain where norms of behaviour come from, what they are about and why they are important.
