Presentation: Choosing To Evolve: A User’s Guide To Waking
Description: It took thousands of years for human consciousness
to evolve the automatic processes that allow us to walk through
the world with a sense of knowing things. Now these same
processes often create seemingly resilient destructive patterns in
our lives, our relationships and in our culture. We can’t change
these automated processes, but with precise awareness of them
and a particular practice of mindfulness, we can evolve new ways of
participating with them. As we do this, we discover the keys to
manifesting a new sense of aliveness, more fulfilling relationships
and the possibility of a world full of hope and promise.
