A longer than usual guided sit for this podcast, but a pretty typical guided sit at an SSIMC class. There is no substitute for sitting with others, meditating; even the best podcast pales in comparison to full bandwidth practice in a space set up to accommodate group meditation of the mindfuling sort.

Practice is repetition but that doesn't mean it is monotonous. In fact if you are seeing monotony then you are not really seeing the truth. But this too takes practice. A little bit every day, formally, allows flexibility to eventually be available. New, old, in-between practitioners all wake up over and over again. Some more kindly than others. Some more deeply than others. Some more consistently than others. So what? Develop your own practice reality — that's what.
