Barry Magid: Lecture 1 — The Pursuit of Happiness
In this Wisdom Lecture Series, Zen Teacher and Psychotherapist Barry Magid elucidates the nature of the mind through ten fascinating video lectures.
In this first lecture, Barry describes the Zen approach to meditation and explains how attempts to cultivate calm, peaceful or blissful states can not just backfire, but block us from experiencing the reality of our true nature. He encourages practitioners to confront the discomfort of our human condition and to connect with the suffering of all of humanity. This first lecture is available to free and Plus members of the Wisdom Experience. The complete lecture series is available to All-Access members. Not All-Access?
