Welcoming the Beyond

With Stephen Fulder recorded on February 9, 2020.

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

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.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Zohar Lavie – Week of May 1, 2023

    This week’s topic is “A Path of Wisdom and Compassion”. Practicing Insight Meditation supports an understanding of how wellbeing is nourished, and how ill-being is conditioned.

    This week’s topic is Skills for Inner and Outer Transformation. Dharma practice gives us great tools for inner and interpersonal change. It’s empowering to explore how these can also be useful for social and environmental transformation. We will tour such qualities, including equanimity (upekkha), non-self (anatta), and sukha (yes, pleasure!). Together, we will draw on both traditional and more contemporary voices to show how your skills as a practitioner could be vital to the work of changing the world.

    Suffering and the end of suffering.

    The ancient and radical teachings of the Buddha point to the possibility to be a free, loving and happy human being in the midst of our everyday lives. Oftentimes our stress, dissatisfaction or suffering come not necessarily from the actual things or events themselves, but from our relationship to them. A different way of looking…
