Awakening from the Landlocked Self

Jul 27, 2022

The Buddha taught that our suffering arises from forgetting who we are. This talk explores the trance of identifying as Somebody, and the compassionate witnessing that allows us to discover the freedom of our natural being.

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.

Rainier Maria Rilke

NOTE: the author of the poem, “Talk About Walking,” is Phillip Booth.
