The Path of Aliveness By Christian Dillo AudioBook Summary
Find a sense of nourishment and embodied aliveness in every aspect of your life with this fresh and accessible guide to Zen practice.
Buddhism aims for the development of a flexible mind and skillful responsiveness-whether toward problems in one’s personal life or broader issues like the ecological crisis. But in a culture now saturated with cliches about mindfulness and unrealistic fantasies about happiness, what does it truly mean to walk this path? The key practice is that of embodied aliveness.
In The Path of Aliveness, Zen and Taoist Qigong teacher Christian Dillo offers a path of meaningful transformation tailored to our times. Through potent conceptual work and practical examples, he shows how to carefully examine the interrelationship between our senses, body energy, thoughts, and emotions so that we can transform our lives in the direction of less suffering and more freedom, wisdom, and compassion. This secular reconstruction respectfully plumbs Buddhist tradition-including classic teachings such as the foundations of mindfulness meditation, the four noble truths, and the practice of loving kindness-while encouraging practitioners to rely on their own embodied experience for maintaining an alive and engaged presence no matter the circumstances.
