Welcoming the Beyond

With Stephen Fulder recorded on February 9, 2020.

What is beyond the ordinary mind? What is beyond thought? How can we access a consciousness that is open, free and limitless? How can we dive into the ocean instead of being tossed by the waves?

The dharma is in its essence a spiritual journey and the character of the path is to meet, engage with, and then let go of the forms, habits, and functional mind that we are attached to, and explore what opens up for us. In this online event we will guide a meditation, give a talk and offer dialogue, to help us to touch a deeper invisible being, and give us a hint of the beyond.
