Paradoxes of Practice (DVD)


by Swami Chetanananda

In this program,  Swami Chetanananda talks about the tension between the need for hard work and dedication and the openness needed to do spiritual work. He refers to this as the paradoxes of practice. Are these models in conflict?  On the one hand, we focus and anchor the mind. On the other hand, to have a deeper experience we open deeply, flow and develop an ever deeper wish to grow. One is fixed and the other flows from an open heart. Is this a paradox?  Listen and learn how they work together.

Recorded during the Shaktipat Retreat in April 2016 at The Movement Center in Portland, OR.
