The Nature of Self

About this weeks topic

This week we are concluding the liberation module with diving into the essence of the self. What is it? What's the difference between the self and the ego? What is consciousness? All these profound questions will help us tackle the last obstacle to feeling ONE with the whole: the illusion of separation!

This weeks Exercises & Homework


It becomes more and more important to have a solid practice of presence and experience. Meditation is one of the most potent way to do this. Check back with the homework from our first lecture (Sync meditation, activating your right hemisphere and zen inspired meditation). A vipassana or zen meditation retreat could be a powerful addition to your journey. But it is not required. It is enough if you include 15 minutes of mindfulness practice into your daily routine.

The most important thing is your quality of attention (broad, vigilant, sustained attention, noticing your whole body as it is having an experience) and not the technique, method or posture you are engaging in.
