Recently, I had the great pleasure of doing an extended interview with Terry Patten on his Beyond Awakening series. He invited me to share some of my perspectives on where the future of spiritual practice is heading–the so-called “geek’s-eye view”. We also explored questions to which there don’t seem to be clear cut answers yet (at least not by me).
Here’s a little description of the areas we explored, with a download link of the recording below for your listening pleasure.
Eastern technologies for awakening met Western psychology and the scientific method a long time ago, and generations of practitioners have been kindling the creative synergies between them ever since. What are the specific insights we’re learning about the technical processes of meditation and awakening? How can meditation be deepened by adding new forms of practice to the old? Can we be deepened by relational (rather than solo) meditation, for example? Or from the techniques developed in fields such as lean processing and agile software development? And how can our clearer consciousness enact itself in service more effectively?
