The Liberating Practice of Looking and Not Finding describes a traditional Buddhist meditative practice of exploring mind and its world, often referred to as “analytical meditation”. These teachings were brought into this world by the renowned 2nd century Indian practitioner, Nagarjuna. They are investigations designed to interrupt our misconception that things intrinsically possess the characteristics we project on to them. This is crucial, because it is the very misconception that things are limited to how we think or feel about them, that fuels reactive mind.
"These teachings have personally 'rocked my world.' As I travel and share these uniquely powerful methods, I am delighted to see how easily people take to them. The contemporary mind is looking for a way to bring clarity to spirituality in the most practical ways." -- Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel
These teachings capture a 5-talk weekend given at Mangala Shri Bhuti’s Colorado center, Phuntsok Choling, in September 2016. They include a discourse and guided meditation in each session, as well as lots of lively discussion.
