Opt Out of Delusion, Tune Into the Truth.

October 1st, 2017 · Comments

Hi friends of New York Dharmapunx: Here's a 2 minute video about 'Unsubscribe' which will be released on November 17th. I hope you find it worth the time to watch. Please feel encouraged to pass it along to friends if you enjoy. The book investigates how core buddhist tools overlap with new psychological modalities and neuroscience developments, and proposes a three-step guide to recovery from addiction to consumerism and self-deception.
Thanks for your attention.

Creating & Experiencing a Felt Shift in Life (Focusing in Meditation)

August 22nd, 2017 · Comments

This talk explores how focusing, a method of insight developed by the late psychiatrist Eugene Gendlin—especially when used as a meditation practice similar to the Buddha's Vedananusati, or awareness of feelings—can create an important shift in the way we somatically process experience, which in turn can lead to real behavioral change. NOTE: During the same week I gave this talk Tricycle Magazine appeared with an excellent article on the same subject by David Rome.
It can be found here: article on focusing
