71 Return to Awarness of Awareness or Shamatha Without a Sign

13 Oct 2013

Alan front loads this session by looking at the difference between this practice and Dzogchen - grasping - and looks at how practice is ideally couched in a supportive way of life. After the meditation session Alan shares with us Atisha’s list of complete conditions for achieving Shamatha, starting with the outer conditions. This takes us naturally to discussion of the contemplative observatory.

Meditation starts at: 15:30 (silent meditation)
