The journey of meditation shows us how our ideas about everyday life are small, regimented, and suffocating. In this talk, Reggie explains that modern spirituality requires a certain bravery, a willingness to be dismantled by the raw reality of our humanity in the midst of everyday circumstances. It’s a journey that requires trust in the radical longing to open up our entire being in a completely undefended way. This approach to spirituality, he says, “is not for all people, but for the people it is for, there is a hunger to know what’s going on beyond reactivity, stories, and defensiveness. When we allow this hunger, then life becomes very interesting.”
This talk was given at a public program Reggie taught in Boulder, CO in 2011. To download more of Reggie’s teachings and to explore a variety of recorded talks and practices to assist you on your spiritual journey, please visit our store.
