You can also watch them in a web-browser with live-streaming here
But I found it easier to download the session I want and then watch it locally, which allows me to skip forward if I wish.

This is great, Ken is really preaching it at the start of session 3 (but I am a fanboy.)

Do you know whether the network delays recorded in the session 3 download you linked are also in the official "live session" video? They truncated his talk.

I highly recommend Session 5: Amber Case is amazing.

Oh, yes, a bit of map geekery:

When she describes the thing in which she was everything but got afraid of where that might lead to:

Very likely 11th ñana, 3rd subjhana (or 6th subñana) aspect, meaning she was very likely sitting right on the ragged edge of the thing, though also could have been 4th ñana to 6th ñana, but something about the way she described it made me think of the former.

Anyway, good stuff.
