Adyashanti: Embracing the World: Resurrecting Jesus

Adyashanti is an American-born teacher trained in the Zen tradition who teaches an
inclusive path toward awakening. With Sounds True, he has published several books and audio programs, including Falling into GraceEmptiness Dancing, and True Meditation. In this episode, Adya draws upon his book Resurrecting Jesus to examine the deep mythic underpinnings of the story of Jesus and how it can serve as a map of awakening. He also talks about Jesus as a revolutionary figure, how the metaphor of the crucifixion helped him process his own experience with intense physical pain, and the redemptive power of love to restore us to our natural state.
