Lucid Planet Radio with Dr. Kelly: Encore: Awakening From the Daydream: Psychology & Buddha's Wheel of Life, Contemplation for Buddha Day

  06/14/2017  02:00 pm PST

May 10th marks the powerful full moon of the year for Buddhists, called Wesak or "Buddha Day" to many, this day offers great potential to clear negative energy from the past 12 months, through contemplation, meditation and ritual. Dr. Kelly will start the show by discussing the importance of this full moon, its cultural significance and the types of rituals that one can engage in to clear energy.


In honor of this important theme, Dr. Kelly has also decided to share the second installment of her series of inspiring, spiritual readings, this time from David Nichtern's "Awakening from the Daydream: Reimagining Buddha's Wheel of Life" - This book offers a visionary fusion of western psychology of the self with Buddhist theory, and has been one of the formative books in Dr. Kelly's own spiritual Journey. She will read some passages on the wheel of life (Samsara) and offer commentary and contemplation.


David Nichtern is a senior Buddhist teacher, meditation guide
and Emmy award winning composer and musician. Beginning in 1970, Nichtern became a student of the Shambhala Buddhist tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and was taught by the founder, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Nichtern has since become a senior teacher.[2] Nichtern has been the Director of Expansion for Shambhala Training, and co-director of the Karme Choling Meditation Center in Vermont.[4]
