Kit Laughlin chats with Thomas Emerson, founder of Praksis (Canberra), about (among many things!) the inescapability of the mind; the fundamental importance of cultivating awareness; how to be a better human being; tools for helping the listener to better access internal states; and how to work with anger – if that's a problem for you – and much more. In the first half of the talk, they discuss how our minds filter reality and thereby condition how the world is presented to us in every moment. In the second half, Kit explains how cultivating awareness of that fact makes it possible for us to experience reality more directly, with greater clarity and with less interference from the pesky ego.
