Awareness Aware of Awareness
One hour guided meditation by Michael Taft on contacting vast, spacious awareness. Ends at 1:00:54
Then dharma talk and Q&A.
This is a variation on the age-old technique created by Dogen (1200–1253 c.e.) called eko hensho in Japanese. This means “turn the light around” or in other words to look at awareness using awareness.
When attempting to talk about awareness of awareness, things start to sound arcane, gobbledy-goopy, or willfully obscurantist. Sorry to sound that way, but I really am describing it as clearly as possible.
