    Rob Burbea - Emptiness, Postmodernism, and Sacred Participation

    Rob Burbea - Emptiness, Postmodernism, and Sacred Participation

    On this episode I'm joined once again by meditation teacher and author Rob Burbea. For this conversation Jamie Bristow and I talk with Rob about his approach to emptiness, and how it can be a route beyond postmodern nihilism and into a vibrant and sacred participation in the world.
    We talk about:

    An overview of the ‘ways of looking’ approach to emptiness, 
    the participatory nature of perception & the world, 
    how perception gets fabricated through our participation, 
    the limitations of a purely cognitive deconstruction ala postmodernism, 
    how Rob would define emptiness if asked about it at a cocktail party, 
    How emptiness reveals a path beyond post-modernity, 
    how hidden commitments limit our ability to explore perspectives, 
    the unavoidability of participation and the impossibility of neutrality, 
    the middle way between existence and non-existence, how this approach to emptiness offers a way forward in a ‘post-truth’ world, 
    how your experience right now is constellated by your way of seeing (whether you know it or not), 
    and the necessity of practice to realize the deeper dimensions of emptiness.

    Jamie Bristow - Mindfulness as Metamodern Psychotechnology

    Jamie Bristow joins the show to respond to critiques against the mindfulness revolution and to make the case for mindfulness as a key metamodern cultural technology.

    Jamie is Director of The Mindfulness Initiative, the world's first policy institute about mindfulness. Jamie now works with politicians around the world to help them make capacities of mind and heart serious considerations of public policy. 

    Topics discussed include:


    A snapshot of the current state of the mindfulness revolution,
    where we are at in the ‘hype cycle’ of mindfulness,
    a response to the current crop of critiques of mindfulness and in particular Ronald Pursers ‘McMindfulness’ critique,
    how mindfulness allows us to rescue our attention the clutches of the attention merchants,
    the attentional capacities of mindfulness as fundamental ground for mass action and civil disobedience in the 21st century,
    the symmetry between mindfulness and the concept of Sovereignty as promoted by Jordan Greenhall and Daniel Scmachtenberger, 
    and what might be available at the deeper end of practice... 🤩
