RamDev analyzes how distraction prevents us from experiencing boundless awareness and the ways we can develop qualities of spaciousness.

Check out Ram Dev’s new online course, A Practical Guide to Freedom: The Stages of Awakening, where you will come away with the wisdom and practices to integrate and embody the stages of the spiritual path so you can begin to surrender into the boundless nature of the heart.

“The path of the dharma really requires that we develop the courage to look beyond our distractedness, to find what lies behind it, and to not necessarily feed ourselves with ongoing entertainment.” – RamDev

This time on Healing at the Edge, RamDev explains:

  • How to deal with distraction
  • The ways that war and politics can consume our minds
  • Shifting between boredom and distraction/entertainment
  • What is behind our ongoing restlessness
  • The fear of spaciousness and emptiness
  • Noticing the impulse to fill up space
  • How compassion comes from having a heart that is spacious
  • Doing Mantras as a vehicle for emptiness
  • Alternative ways to experience openness

“Everybody in this virtual room has been in that place of profound openness, whether through meditation or being in nature or through psychedelics or raising a child, or on and on, playing music. Can we keep repeating that moment? What is more important than bringing in that openness into daily activity?” – RamDev
