The Wonderment Instinct - Vol. 87


When we bring an attitude of wonderment to meditation, an instinct of “I don’t know,” we open to our experience in a way that is not conflicted and can make us more prone to the realization of our true nature. Adyashanti explores how meditating and living in this state of wonderment is a form of inquiry that opens the window to the profound mystery of the unconditioned, natural state of mind.

  • The Essence of Meditation
  • Adyashanti's Initiation into Meditation
  • Meditating Effortlessly
  • Waking Up from the Waking Dream
  • The Natural State of Mind
  • The Attitude of Not Knowing

  • The Authority of Your Experience
