Why Metadharma?, Pt. 1, with Michael W. Taft
In this latest addition to the Metadharma series, Vince Horn is joined by Michael W. Taft to explore the (meta)reasoning around Metadharma. Why do we need another Dharma? What does Metadharma respond to that Modern and Postmodern forms of Dharma haven’t? What do we need to jettison in order for a genuine Metadharma to emerge? And how does Metadharma relate to the very real social crises we face, including the ecological emergency, runaway capitalism, an over-dependence on rationality, growing racial resentments, and systems of oppression?This is part 1 of a 2-part podcast series. Continue listening to the 2nd half of this discussion on Michael’s podcast Deconstructing Yourself: 🎧 Why Metadharma?, Part 2, with Vincent HornEpisode Links:🎧 Why Metadharma?, Part 2, with Vincent Horn🔗 Deconstructing Yourself📅 Metadharma Daylong Retreat in San Francisco on 8/24/19 w/ Michael Taft & Vincent Horn🔗 San Francisco Dharma Collective🔗 Sounds True🎧 Kosmic Consciousness by Ken Wilber🎧 Bonnitta Roy - Six Ways to Go Meta📖 "The Science of Enlightenment” by Shinzen Young📄 The Crumbling Buddhist Consensus: Overview by David Chapman🔗 Buddhist modernism📖 “American Dharma” by Ann Gleig🎧 Sameness and Difference in American Dharma📄 Mādhyamika🔗 Death Sangha with Michael Taft📺 What Are the Four Quadrants? by Ken Wilber📖 “Syntheism: Creating God in the Internet Age” by Alexander Bard & Jan Soderqvist📱 Headspace📖 "The Mindful Geek: Mindfulness Meditation for Secular Skeptics” by Michael Taft🔗 David Schmachtenberger🐥 The Buddhist Geeks Farm
The Dharma of Collapse
"Climate change", as a term, no longer captures the real danger that climate scientists say that we as a species, along with our fellow creatures, face today. Already the impacts of climate change have turned into a genuine ecological crisis. A growing group of people are asking out loud, if the recent string of dire government-backed climate reports are too conservative to accurately describe the real dangers ahead of us. What if, in fact, we are on the fast track toward both an ecological & civilizational collapse, and it's already too late? What would it mean to practice dharma in "the spectre of collapse?"Vince Horn is joined in this episode by a former team member of Buddhist Geeks, current monastic resident at the Monastic Academy, and host of the Emerge podcast, Daniel Thorson to discuss the dharma of collapse.Memorable Quotes:“It’s collapsing into certainty, in any case, that’s the real danger here, because then we foreclose on all kinds of possibilities and opportunities that we won’t see because we think we know what’s going on.” - Daniel Thorson“If it’s true, everything needs to change. And if we can be uncertain about it then we can play with how things might change, in order so that it doesn’t have the worst impacts we fear it might.” - Daniel Thorson“I wonder to what degree the spectre of collapse will be a kind of strange attractor that will pull people out of this deconstructive habit, into realizing that we need to make something that works, for the sake of our lives, for our children’s lives, for the sake of life on earth.” - Daniel Thorson“The world is ending, but at least I can breathe through it.” - Vince Horn“There are a lot of people and communities who are trying to retreat instead of retrieve.” - Vince HornEpisodes Links:🎙 Emerge: Making Sense of What’s Next🔗 What is Emerging?🔗 The Monastic Academy📖 "Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha" by Daniel Ingram📖 "American Dharma" by Ann Gleig🔗 Dharmachanics🔗 Metamodernism🎧 Hanzi Freinacht - Towards a Metamodern Politics📖 “The Listening Society” by Hanzi Freinacht🎧 Dr. Jem Bendell - The Meaning and Joy of Inevitable Social Collapse📄 Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy by Jem Bendell🔗 IPCC Fifth Assessment Report🔗 Transhumanism🔗 David Loy🎧 Max Borders - The Coming Social Singularity🎧 Zak Stein - A Metaphysics of Love for a Time Between Worlds📖 “Education in a Time Between Worlds” by Zachary Stein🔗 Ken Wilber📄 From Western Marxism to Western Buddhism by Slavoj Žižek🎧 Buddhism Unbundled by Vince Horn🔗 New religious movement📖 “Metamodern Leadership” by James Surwillo🔗 Meaningness: The fluid mode🎧 Bonnitta Roy - A Source Code Analysis of Power🔗 Roy Bhaskar 
Sameness & Difference in American Dharma
In this deep dive into the emerging territory of American Dharma, scholar-practitioner Ann Gleig joins with Buddhist Geeks host Vince Horn to explore a plurality of perspectives, some overlooked and marginalized, some debated for millennia. Over 2 hours of deep dialogical podcasting, Ann & Vince explore the larger territory of postmodernism in relation to American Dharma from multiple philosophical vantages, including the ‘post secular’, the ‘postcolonial’, and also in this conversation the ‘metamodern.’Favorite Quotes:"It can be challenging to mediate closeness with critique.” - Ann Gleig“Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Evolving.” - David Loy“In a way there’s no way around it, you kind of have to do the hard confrontational work of practice.” - Ann Gleig Episode Links:📖 "American Dharma: Buddhism Beyond Modernity" by Ann Gleig🎙 Metadharma: Set & Setting by Vince Horn📄 Postmodernism📄 Postsecularism📄 Postcolonialism📄 Metamodernism📄 Buddhist Modernism📄 Enlightenments Beyond the Enlightenment by David Chapman📺 From Buddhist Hippies to Buddhist Geeks by Ann Gleig📖 "Immunity to Change" by Robert Kegan📄 Carl Jung📄 Ken Wilber📄 Lawrence Kohlberg📄 Carol Gilligan📄 Strategic Essentialism📄 "The Fourth Turning" by Ken Wilber📄 "The Way of Tenderness" by Zenju Earthlyn Manuel🔗 Angel Kyodo Williams🔗 Jeffrey J.
