While meditative practices are designed to point us into this infinite depth, we often get bogged down along the way, caught in our psychological history, our emotional drama and our habitual knots of self-referentiality.
This course with Martin Aylward points beyond the confines of habitual experience to the heart of transformational practice. Looking beyond our conditioned views we free ourselves of long established beliefs and patterns, opening into an ever deepening and freeing understanding of reality. Through the weeks, Martin’s teachings, reflections, practices and dialog exercises will show you how to contemplate some of the classical concerns of spiritual life. Without relying on any beliefs about the way life is, Buddhist or otherwise, you will instead learn how to look at the nature of time and space, self and world, life and death by looking deeply into your own experience.
This course is open to anyone. It will be especially useful for those more interested in questions than answers, and who want to harness their meditation practice to look as deeply as possible into this extraordinary adventure of being alive and human.
