Mud and Radiance: a Whole Life Individual and Relational Detox Program

With Gregory Kramer recorded on January 19, 2020.

The world is on fire, internally and externally; we can no longer look away, but in order to deal with it we need to be awake.The mind is often muddy, but it is also radiant at the same time.The asava (intoxicants) keep us in the hazy state, but there is a detox program of relinquishment, effacement, and wisdom. Detoxing, and recognizing radiance, is powerful both individually and relationally. Together, we can find a whole life path. Join Gregory to explore how we might pursue this path.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Zohar Lavie – Week of March 14, 2022
