Program Information:

“If delusion is awareness stuck in attention-traps, and enlightenment liberates awareness, does the spiritual path involve finding the correct story, or getting rid of stories, or learning to story in a new way?” – David Loy, The World is Made of Stories
During this Meditate.io Live Event we will be joined by visiting Zen teacher, climate activist, & writer David Loy. The evening will include an intimate conversation between Meditate.io Host Vincent Horn & David Loy on the nature of Stories and their relationship to the meditative path. It will also include some periods of meditative practice and a chance for the audience to engage in discussion with David about the nature & impact of stories on human reality.
