*Sit & Dharma Talk – Dennis Warren – Resolving Conflicting, Contradictory or Paradoxical Teachings
January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm
Resolving Conflicting, Contradictory or Paradoxical Teachings
Sit & Dharma Talk with SIM Founding Teacher, Dennis Warren
It is easy to view our perception that one teaching conflicts with, contradicts or is paradoxical to another teaching as an obstacle to our understanding, insight and progress on the path of practice. This perception is frequently a mis-perception based on uncertainty, confusion and doubt. When properly understood, the skillful resolution of such misunderstandings act as a doorway, rather than an obstacles, to the next level, stage or dimension of practice.
This will be the first in a series of talks and discussions about fundamental issues that shape our understanding of the dharma and practice, and have practical, profound implications for our awakening. This evening will focus on the process, the how, of resolving uncertainty, confusion & doubt regarding teachings that seem to be in conflict, contradictory or paradoxical.
