How can the world be illusion but also be real? How can everything be changing and yet there be something called “the changeless?” Is God Darkness or Light? In this 2015 Santa Barbara Intensive, Adyashanti explores paradoxical spiritual teachings as well as other facets of the awakening and embodying process.
