Mindful Inquiry: A Path of Freedom and Joyful Responsibility

With Deborah Eden Tull recorded on January 20, 2019.

Found our teachings useful? Help us continue our work and support your teachers with a donation. Here’s how.

Mindful Inquiry is the path of asking the question that points to freedom. This practice can support even long-time practitioners to find more relief from suffering and clarity about the ever-present wholeness of True Nature. A good teacher can point the way, but it is up to each of us to take responsibility for our karma and our freedom.

How do we take joyful responsibility in everyday life?
What is the motion that shifts us from victimization and disempowerment by our thoughts and emotions, to clear seeing?
How do the qualities of curiosity, compassion, and humility light the way in inquiry?

What changes when we learn to relate to our emotions like a welcoming friend? And, what changes when we are able to access the place in which…
