  1. Leo Chadburn - ANTICLOCK (2019)

    An exploration of the ambiguities of clock time, numbers, mind control, musical ‘machines’, extra-terrestrial communication and dog behaviour, with speaking metronomes that the ensemble alternately obeys or counteracts. Written in thirteen one-minute long movements, which fluctuate between the exuberant and the sinister without warning:

    1. "ENTRY"
    2. "ACCELERATE" (1:24)
    3. "ZEE" (2:10)
    4. "VOICELESS" (3:17)
    5. "NON-RISSET" (4:06)
    6. "DOG" (5:26)
    7. "REALCLOCK" (6:16)
    8. "OFF (DJ SENSIBILITIES)" (7:06)
    9. "SERIES" (7:51)
    10. "VOICED" (9:11)
    11. "DICHOTOMIES” (10:28)
    12. "PRINT-THROUGH" (11:52)
    13. "DECCELERATE" (12:48)

    Commissioned by Decibel, premiered by them at Cafe Oto, London, 1st April 2019.

    Video: Performance at The Lab, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, 2nd April 2019.

    1:01:20 - Enlightenment and worldly goals. Goes into the nature of craving (versus just pleasant and unpleasant) and what that means for being in the world as an awakened person as well how the various historical developments of Buddhism have misunderstood Buddha’s teaching on this point.

    1:36:19 - How does TMI related to other Buddhist practices such as Zen Shikantaza, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen?

  7. Culadasa April 2019 Patreon Q&A

    0:00 - I’m currently in stage 0 despite attempting to transition to stage 1 for years. I aim to one hour sit, not once I lasted that long, and in fact I haven’t attempted to sit for weeks. To be fair, I just came out of a long as depression and my self-discipline and motivation are recovering back from extremely low levels.

    I intellectually understand that meditation is crazy good for you, yet I haven’t been able to transform that knowledge into fuel to fire up my motivation and anchor myself onto the pillow.

    I guess my question would be about self-motivation, something along the lines of: how to build up the intention of sitting when motivation is in the negatives shortly after I sit. [Stage 1] [Depression]

    7:51- From the perspective of the Dharma, what are the most important methods to use in communication with spouse and children? (E.g. raising children in a way that points them in the direction of Awakening, mindful listening etc.)

    14:33 - Also, from the Dharma point of view, how to approach deciding whether to have a child, considering the future suffering that a new human being will inevitably experience?

    20:00 - I’m wondering if there’s a risk of going "too deep" to the point where one is not able to live a normal life in society because they are physically unable to return to the state of separate self.

    34:10 - Once one has entered stream entry,is there a way to cultivate moving to the unfolding path?

    38:20 - In what situations you’d recommend dry insight practices(like noting) over samatha + vipassana? Is there a way to tell which practice would work for which student? [History of modern Buddhism, Zen, Theravada, Ledi Sayadaw, Mahasi, U Ba Khin, Goenka, Visuddhimagga, Daniel Ingram, Ajahn Chah, jhanas]

    1:04:26 - What is the difference between the knowledge that comes from tapping into the resonance of others and the spontaneous/unsolicited occurings of knowledges and abilities we didn’t have previous sources from?

    1:10:38 - If neuroplasticity is a direct result of meditation, do you feel that it may also be possible to alter the DNA in the same way?

    1:17:00 - I play guitar and also sing, I have also read that you play an instrument (citara), right? What are some suggestions you have to approach on these two activities simultaneously in a mindful way?

    1:19:48 - In stage 4, are strong and intense body/face movements together with an energy through the body supposed to be normal during meditation?

    CONTENTS:

    00:00:15: Shinzen Young said, he’d rather live 1 more day enlightened than 20 years as a wealthy, famous, beloved, non-enlightened person. What do you say to this?

    00:06:15: Scary heart racing, strange out-of-body experience, physiological problems accompagnying supposed insight experience. Is this normal?

    00:13:13 Terrible problem with tension and resulting pain in the muscles of my face. I can only keep the tension at bay to backing off of effort, going from stage 5 to stage 2.

    00:23:20 Do you think chanting and mantras are a good adjunct to meditation?

    00:31:09 How does surrendering to the experience / the situation affect one’s ability to go into deeper stages of meditation?

    00:37:05 Are there certain stages of meditation where surrender plays a more important role?

    00:39:00 Can we only surrender to experiences which are perceived as negative, but not enjoyable ones?

    00:43:41 Follow-Up: Is there something more subtle to the question which I missed? R: It partly originate from taking refuge in the three jewels. Isn’t that also some kind of surrendering?

    00:48:50 Is there a reason for shifting to the abdomen before beginning the body scan in stage 5?

    00:52:55 How intense can a shift in the brain after an Insight be on our personality, traits, hobbys? Is the process sudden or continuous?

    00:59:30 Could explain the occurring of anxiety and restlessness resisting insights which have not been assimilated fully?

    01:03:20 Is having the insight something immanent (evanent?? How can one make sure their mind has deeply understood them?

    01:09:10 Is formal meditation still important after stream entry / deep insight experiences? Should one not "return to the marketplace" instead?

    01:17:30 Can you discuss the influence in diet, esp. ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting, in improving one’s ability to meditate?

    01:18:47: Can you talk about the lack of motivation for formal sitting meditation, even after many insights?

    01:22:30 Can a noble disciple / stream entrant become drawn back to craving sensory pleasure?

    01:30:00 What would happen to the universe if all beings would stop clinging at once, if every being was enlightened?
