Synopsis An audio recording (thanks to Regina) of an NS gathering at David's house, around an outside fire, on July 4th.

(A discussion of his state is taken up two days later at our Saturday gathering .). Later, Bradley, Regina, JeffL, Barbara, and Jed participate. Highlights...

Pierre's video response to a set of questions from Adina via email: By what means / methods can we understand Enlightenment, our problems and experiences? What is the role of dreams? How can they be understood? Why is it important not to interpret them? What is the role of reflection? What is Ousia & the Logos? What is the meaning of Life? What is the Self? What is the Nature of Ultimate Reality? Does the Self need a Soul? Why is turning to the Self practical ? What is the function of True...

There's a bit of a talk at the beginning about Pierre's motivational study at GWC, about types of students who go on probation, i.e. selfers, future carreerists, vocationals, and high-schoolers. We began the study at 130B and continued from there. If you want a bit of audio that precedes this where Gina is talking about...

Another great Friday night with Pierre. As he has so often done over the years, he takes a seat and lets us try our hand at dreamwork and mid-wifery with each other, only jumping in to help when we get stuck. Belinda does two dreams, first with Josh as "midwife", then on the second dream with JeffL as midwife. Jed explores his dream with JeffL taking an initial shot at being the midwife, then Pierre taking over. JulieP midwifes Don on his dream, and shows us all how it is done. :-)...
