Looking for Nirvana in All the Wrong Places
with Jeffrey Fracher
What is the goal of our meditation practice? To reduce our suffering or to achieve extraordinary states of consciousness? Or, both? We will explore a pragmatic, practical model of practice versus a metaphysical model of practice and address the question of whether Buddhism is a religion or a philosophy of life.
