Wise View, the foundation of the Path

Wise View is the first element of the Eightfold Path to end suffering, and it is the lens through which all the other elements can best be understood.  Joey led the discussion this past week, drawing from dharma talks and an interview between Loch Kelly and Adyashanti to help define Wise or Right View, offering practical ways to apply it, and demonstrating the results of awakening to it.

This is the youtube conversation between Adyashanti and Loch Kelly that Joey thought was an interesting follow on to Guy Armstrong’s talk: Formation of Self.

 
Mentioned by Margaret during the Sangha discussion: Eye and brain, by Richard Gregory.
