34 Awareness of Awareness, part 1

15 Sep 2011

“Not in a million years”.
Alan discusses modern concepts of mindfulness and meditation practice, which involve mere non judgmental attention to the present moment and whatever arises in that moment. He discusses their origin, the similarity they have in name to the awareness of awareness/shamatha without a sign practice, their benefits, and the extent to which they provide a suitable vehicle for the attainment of shamatha and other types of meditative attainment.
