Chris Luard talks about his practice and how Buddhism has influenced. This serves as a good practical introduction to Buddhist principles and how they might help facilitate growth and healing. Chris generally distances himself from ostensibly religious labels, preferring to call himself ‘someone who practices the dharma,’ rather than a Buddhist. This has certainly been the approach of many contemporary spiritual guides, and this secularization of mystical practices has perhaps been largely responsible for the growth of yoga and mindfulness in the West.
Contemplative Light has lots of great upcoming interviews scheduled for October, including Phileena Huertz, Rev. Stuart Higginbotham, Christiana Peterson, and some other notable surprises who will remain undisclosed.
Oh! And in case we haven’t announced it enough yet, we have a free mini-course on The Christian mystics, available here.
