LU is focused guiding for seeing there is no real, inherent 'self' - what do you understand by this?
The separation begins with learning a language.
Words/labels create the subject/object conditioning that becomes the
basis for the personal-self illusion. That Tenacious ( I thought ) that everything
revolves around for the remainder of ones life.

What are you looking for at LU?
I've been chasing the elusive Enlightenment rainbow upon hearing the teaching in the early 1960's,
( You people live in words and ideas about things, You have no direct experience of things,
Words are expressions of language , they hold on inherent truths ! )
A lotta books, a few retreats, But never really was able to address the core problem.
The idea of a ridge Personal Self

What do you expect from a guided conversation?
The pleasure of being able to talk with a person in simple everyday language
about the very things that have confused me about the non-dual teachings over
the last Fifty years. So much of the searching has been wary beneficial for me
and I'm thankful for it.

What is your experience in terms of spiritual practices, seeking and inquiry?
I've participated in many Buddhist and Advaita lead retreats over the last forty years.
My journey started in the 1960's with Ram Dass's tapes and on into The Buddhist schools
zen - Insight Meditation - privet sessions with Different teachers,
Understand what the problem is and being able to talk about it with someone are two different things.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how willing are you to question any currently held beliefs about 'self?
