“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.” Voltaire
You know too much, yet understand too little. And it’s the same for me, and everyone you and I happen to know.

What follows are a series of posts and audio-casts that respond to this living human condition, bringing together practice materials from non-Buddhism, post-traditional approaches to Buddhism, and the work of Peter Sloterdjik. Each post represents a visit to the Great Feast and provides ideas for practice for those who simply cannot find a home in mainstream Buddhism, Mindfulness, Atheism, or some other form of spirituality.
This second part engages Peter Sloterdijk and the challenges of creating a practice in our contemporary moment.
It can be read and re-read here if you have appetite for more here.
