Read about the framework
David Lassiter and I journey through the experience of the mind. This turned into a 2hr+ exploration of awareness and discussion about whether experience arises in the mind or whether mind is an ingredient of experience.
If you’re looking for quick answers or a pithy podcast, this is not for you. I decided not to edit it into an audio file and just share the full-length video, so that you can come on the adventure with us. The result is somewhere between a guided journey and a slow and explorative conversation, with a bit of absurdity sprinkled in.
If you’d like to to join us, I’d recommend finding a comfy spot where you can lie down or sit back, close your eyes and relax.
