The Teachings of Dzogchen: Entering the Mind to Go Beyond the Mind

In this deeply illuminating exchange, C. Von Hassett, a decades long practitioner of Dzogchen, editor and chief of LA’s premier literary and cultural magazine Riot Material, and author of the book Entering the Mind, shares wisdom filled considerations on how we can awaken ourselves toward the recognition of our own mind in its most natural state. Considered the highest form of meditation in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, he explains how Dzogchen is a doorway to self-knowing, non-dual awareness - or rigpa, and how its teachings provide the path to accessing full knowledge. We break down such topics as:  the difference between conceptual mind and non-conceptual mind, the illusion of the “I” in meditation, why our stories are false, how we can move from attachment to allowance, and the 4th state of time.  C. Von shares humbling, personal stories and influences that radically shaped his journey and brought him to greater wholeness.  This is a beautiful and enriching talk for both meditator and non-meditator alike.
