What are spiritual realisations? How do we achieve them? What are the effects from attaining realisations?
Even among Buddhist traditions there are different views regarding them. In this workshop, we will engage in a series of guided meditations and simple perceptual experiments to explore the idea of realisation as a shift in perspective as opposed to an attainment of some special states and reflect on its potential benefits.
