I'm not sure of any right off hand but I sure would love to see a transcript of Khandro Rinpoche teaching on it.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

This book is excellent on Satipatthana. Written by Theravadin monk Ven. Analayo.
