Healing, Transformation, Awakening: FCM Study and Practice Guide

3. Fruition: Wisdom Path (Drinking Deeply from the Bowl)

With a firm foundation of daily practice, a clear aspiration, and mental and emotional stability and clarity, we are now ready to look more deeply into life and personal experience in order to awaken to the reality of non-self, emptiness, and our natural mind. At this point, the meditative exploration of the teachings is experiential, immediate and aims for a “break-through” or a “break-out” into a radically new unfettered view of life and reality. A life of true ease, wisdom, love and selfless service becomes available to us. Please visit Dharma Talks and Series Talks for a complete listing of all Wisdom talks.
