In this talk from their Livestream Series, Enlighten Up, Doug and Catherine explore the difference between mindfulness and meditation, the power of retreat work and why people tend not to practice. They look at how meditation gives us the space to see how much of our experience is ruled by the habit patterns of our “operating system”, aka the ego. The insights this produces allows us to see through our isolation to the very ground of being and to compassionately share the benefits of this clear and loving space with others.
