Thank you, Rick, for welcoming Stephen to your program!
The discussion delved into topics of energetic resonance of awakening, facsimiles of awakening, confusion around awakening, how to work with intensity and blocks, fear of no-self, and much more.
Thank you to James Burns for inviting Stephen as a guest for a wonderful dharma discussion on the inaugural episode of JB Podcast.
James’s thoughtful questions invited an interesting discussion about jhāna (absorption concentration), Four Elements meditation, and how the ancient Buddhist heart practices can lead to transcendent states arising within awareness and consciousness.
