2015-03-24 Thinning the Self - Practicing with Anatta (not-self) 60:53
After some reflection 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 and sometimes hidden; (3) further meditative ways to "thin" the self; and (4) ways of thinning, especially as our practice deepens, the "meditative self."
