The Happiness of Emptiness

With Christopher Titmuss recorded on January 21, 2024.

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

Exploration of ultimate teachings requires listening, reflection/meditation rather than sitting to wait for an experience. Emptiness does not require experiences.
The ultimate reveals the emptiness of self, ego, I and my – including self interest, self help and self compassion.
This session will explore the contractions forming self and the way our minds have become wrapped up in roles and socialisation
