Can Dharma Help us Turn the Corner?

Posted on 15. Mar, 2010 by in Blog

Buddhist Geeks podcast #163 is online, with Terry Patten and yours truly, recorded at the Boulder Integral in September 2009, hosted by Buddhist Geeks. Quote from the announcement for the event:

In an imbalanced, accelerating world-in-crisis we face problems that cannot be solved, as Einstein famously said, “from the same level of consciousness that created them.” Many contemporary practitioners have turned to the Dharma as a source of that higher consciousness. But traditionally, the path was described as the way to awaken from the dream of human life, not to improve it. The traditions saw that as futile. But today, we no longer see life as an endless cycle.

We have an evolutionary view of ourselves and even of our spirituality. And we have seen the folly of bypassing our critical life challenges in an attempt to be spiritual. How does the wisdom and clarity of ancient Dharma have relevance and meaning in the midst of contemporary evolutionary challenges? How can spiritual insight and illumination empower us to more effectively meet the emerging challenges of our time?
