Regarding the session, Shaun writes:
Hello everyone: I’m submitting two pieces for our next discussion, ‘Ditching the Raft’ You can read any amount you’re comfortable with. The idea is not to critique the pieces, although you can certainly do that, but to focus on ‘ditching the raft’ as a process. What aspects of Buddhism (some or all of it) do you feel like you need to throw overboard? do you need to replace that with something else? if so, with what?
Also, please consider joining our Trash Community Board.
