After some reflections on some of the reasons why anatta (not-self) can be confusing, we explore especially how to practice with anatta: (1) opening to a sense of flow increasingly without a sense of self; (2) exploring the many ways in which there is a "thick" sense of self, both appearing in experience and sometimes hidden to immediate experience; (3) further meditative ways to "thin" the self; and (4) ways of thinning, especially as our practice deepens, the "meditative self."
By turning inward we meet our shadows that we so easily can see outside of us and around us. Only by meeting our own shadow with love we can create integration and better social worlds. Looking at the body we can see how each part is communication, cooperating with each other.
This innovative talk describes the process and advanced practice of Integrating our Insights, including types of insight, what the mind does immediately after an insight, teasing apart the clinging & the natural impulse to integrate insight, how to test the insight, how to include & purify 'the clinging that remains', and learning to live the insight.
