Chris Luard talks to us from Thailand, where he works as a meditation teacher at a retreat center.   He gives us a picture of how Asia has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic and relays some of the fortunate circumstances he has encountered. We discuss metaphysical philosophies of spirituality and mysticism, as well as practical meditation strategies.  Two of the books Chris recommends for listeners are: The Art of Solitude by Stephen Batchelor and The Tibetan Book of the Dead translated by Robert Thurman.

Contemplative Light provides education and resources in a global effort towards inner transformation through meditation and contemplative prayer. You can find us on Facebook as Contemplative Light where we have a very active facebook community or at our website at contemplativelight.org
