We will be talking about this talk by Joseph Goldstein on No Self.
He calls it a collage and rather than giving a traditionally structured dharma talk, he talks about how he came to realise some of the teachings – the times when the teachings went from boring, academic instructions to something he felt in his bones. I found it to be an interesting window into how an experienced practitioner works with the teachings.
Joseph Goldstein is one of the first wave of western dharma teachers. He helped found IMS with Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg et al.
The schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:00 walking
7:00 – 7:30 sitting
We meet at BIBS.
