New blog post: "Watering Down the Dharma" http://kennethfolkdharma.com/2013/07/1610/
I have been accused of “watering down the dharma.” By defining an arahat (also arhat and arahant) as someone who has “gotten off the ride” and can see e

Meditation is becoming a huge movement in Silicon Valley. I'm curious as always, so I'm getting more and more into it. Just had a session on Popexpert with +Kenneth Folk featured in this story. Great experience in PopExpert Ingrid Sanders

I enjoyed this a lot, Kenneth. I am curious if the "Progress of Insight" (the process, not the book by Mahasi) was first described by Visuddhimagga?

Hi Everybody,

I'm very pleased to announce the first of an ongoing series of virtual pragmatic dharma workshops. On the 1st weekend of each month, I'm going to co-lead a workshop with Vincent Horn of Buddhist Geeks. In this first installment, we're going to teach 4 Foundations of Mindfulness noting with a partner and Mahamudra noting. We'll present the techniques along with a little bit of theory, then break off into pairs for noting, then get back together as a group for some questions and discussion, and then probably do it all again. It should be a great time and another step in building online sangha in addition to sharing some of the most powerful tools I know for deepening practice. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Fortunately a trip to italy got cancelled and one book has been removed from the pile... but with two open, three back-burnered, and two that I really do want to get to soon, I almost don't want to find out that these are good reads. All the same, if I can continue to ramp up my concentration during reading, these could be a good few months, thank you.

Hi Everybody,

Just a reminder that Vince and I will be doing another virtual workshop tomorrow (Saturday, October 1st) at 12:00 noon Eastern Standard time. This one is on Mahamudra noting, one of my favorite practices. Last month's workshop was cool and I think this one will be too. Hope to see you there! Here is the link to the information and signup page:
