Three Guided Meditations


“In the real and full realization, awareness is the world, the world is awareness.”

“The ultimate nature of things is nonconceptual. It’s deeper than the concept.”

“What’s useful to know is that the enlightenment drive, in a certain sense, comes from enlightenment itself. The drive to realize the ground of being, the instinct for it, arises from the ground of being itself.”

“We keep usurping the wisdom of our bodies.”

“The ground of being is emptiness and what flows out of the ground of being is fullness.”

“It takes some courage to let go—that’s facing the unknown.”

Recorded in Santa Cruz, California on May 5-7, 2023.
