Here’s a quick update on what’s new at SpiritualTeachers.org and elsewhere.
The latest edition of the Journals of Spiritual Discovery podcast features “Honesty, Focus, Intuition, and the Natural Koan,” an interview of me by Rev. Saina Fernandez of the Awakening Together organization. As always, the podcast is free. If you’re inspired to support my efforts, check out my selection of books, t-shirts, notebooks, and films.
I’m happy to announce that the latest book from the TAT Foundation Press, Passages: An Introduction and Commentary on Richard Rose’s Albigen System, is now available in print on Amazon.com. Passages highlights the tools and techniques for self-realization that Richard Rose recommended. It’s perfect for those looking for an introduction to Rose’s teachings, but is also a great handbook and source of inspiration for those familiar with his work. It is a concise yet deep plunge into these valuable spiritual teachings. Please show your support by purchasing a copy and leaving a review on Amazon. Thanks!
Meditation and the Path Within, August 19-21, is the next event at TAT Foundation Center in North Carolina. There will be three interactive workshop sessions, so lots of opportunity to practice meditation and ask questions. Events at the TAT Center are really “heating up” with lots of good energy and inspiration. Check it out.
I’m always surprised when Richard Rose’s name is mentioned somewhere new. A reader directed me to writer Matt Cardin on the Weird Studies podcast briefly mentioning Rose. After following the link, click play and it will take you directly to where Rose was mentioned in the last few minutes of the show. “You gotta remember, there is no enlightened ‘you.'”
Quote That I’m Pondering
“The line between perceiving and hallucinating is not as crisp as we might like to think. In a sense, when we look at the world, we are hallucinating all the time. One could almost regard perception as the act of choosing the one hallucination that best fits the incoming data, which is often fragmentary and fleeting. Both hallucinations and real perceptions emerge from the same set of processors. The critical difference is that when we are perceiving, the stability of external objects and events help anchor them.” V.S. Ramachandran
Wishing you all the best,
