Emptiness. Buddha says it holds the key to liberation. Yet it can be so difficult to "get it," and even harder to relate it to our lives. Yet meditating on emptiness actually does not take us away from this world. It is about these things right here, seeing them more clearly.This weekend we will work with methods for bringing emptiness to life, so as to see our everyday lives as inseparable from emptiness.
Guy Newland is Professor of Religion and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Central Michigan University, where he has taught since 1988. He has authored, edited, and translated several books on Tibetan Buddhism including the three-volume translation of The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment and Introduction to Emptiness. He lives in Mount Pleasant, MI.
