"Mindfulness 101" with Charles Tart (part 1 of 4)

What They Should Have Taught Us Long Ago

Visionary: Charles T. Tart, PhD

Part 1  |  Part 2  |  Part 3  |  Part 4

We are by nature clear, perceptive, compassionate, and effective beings - but these qualities are usually lost in the deluded busyness of "normal" life. Charles offers tastes - both experiential and intellectual - of basic "Controlled Attention Practices" that focus, stabilize, and clear our minds, leading to insights that work in everyday life. Ordinary education assumes we already have these skills, but they still need opening and cultivation. In more traditional terms, you will be introduced to concentrative and insight (Vipassana) meditation practices and Gurdjieffian self-remembering as methods to become clearer, calmer, more perceptive, and practically compassionate.
