During The Art of Dying, Andrew gave a quick guided meditation on the stages of dissolution.
In lieu of a VR program, how about a long recorded guided Sutra-meditation? Or 2.
- One on the dissolution/death
- One on the 5 bardo stages (naturally endcapped by “the natural bardo of this life” )
Surely you have connections to some producer or 9?
As a solo exercise (opposed to the hacks I inserted into past formal practices) I pass out. Either way I get confused when I try this on my own, and this past class introduced me to all sorts of new info.
Antidote: “memorize it!”
I can clear a day, sit down w/ Thurman’s book to draw it all out or otherwise mind-map it. And when have, I never make it out of the bathroom before being distracted by some half-finished project. Next thing I know another day is gone.
“Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.”
This is what I struggle with every flippin’ day, regardless the intention. Maybe I’ll get mad enough and break out of…no, that’s hope.
Figure it can’t hurt to ask, as another program is coming up.
on the course/retreat artwork, BTW!
