Compassion: Lucidity in the Waking State

04 May 2010

We start with an introduction on the three different dimensions of suffering and pick up briefly on this morning’s topic of becoming lucid in the waking state.
The deep practice that follows is indeed a Compassion practice but its focus is on this lucidity.
After the meditation we have some open questions focused on the practice, such as “how does vividness manifest in the practice of settling the mind in its natural state,” and other general questions that might be good for all! We passed the microphone around so there are a lot people giving their experience and asking their own questions this time.

Another photo by Ale! As you can see she had quite a nice trip and gave me a bunch of awesome pictures. I know I already used this one but I had some technical problems!
