Finding freedom in daily life: public talk. Oxford, Nov 2018

November 30 @ 7:00 pm

James Low

Finding Freedom in Daily Life

Daily pressures seem to be ever increasing with spiralling obligations. The idea of finding freedom from this is tempting, yet running away does not free us from ourselves. Dzogchen meditation is a simple means to find freedom in the midst of demand and turmoil. Freedom to be with all of life rests in the freedom to be.
