Ordinary Mind Meditation Course is finally here!

A project I've been working on for a while is finally under way: a free Buddhist meditation course! In every session some philosophical background is given in a rising degree of difficulty, after which a guided meditation provides techniques for embodying this new knowledge, testing it for oneself and by practicing, turning the knowledge into intuition.

Non-self Esteem

The interesting thing about the attitudes of inferiority and superiority is that they are two sides of the very same coin. We call this coin "lack of self-confidence". Mentioning anything that has the word 'self' in it as a positive can be seen as a big no-no in Buddhist circles, but for the sake of our personal and collective sanity, I think a clarification of this matter would be highly useful.
