9 pm Lakshmi Narayan: What Does It Mean To Be Awake?

I want to talk about the two types of Awakening -- an absolute awakening vs a cyclical awakening, which together create a certain creative tension and paradox. Embracing paradox is one of the milestones of being awake, and in this talk I'm going to share my understanding of this phenomenon, some key features and processes that I have experienced over the years, and delve into the metaphysical markers along this path that can appear for anyone and everyone, no matter what stage or age or level of awakening they might be at in their life.
