When the Waking Up book was released, Sam did some public presentations and Q&A's that got put together as a two hour video. The first hour is a presentation by Sam on the ideas from the book, the second hour is the Q&A's.
I missed this content when it was released and saw it for the first time recently. I would recommend it for anyone interest in Sam's content, particularly the second hour with the Q&A.
Apparently the video is available as an extra to subscribers in Sam's website ( I do not know if you can access it being a subscriber to the app or if you have to be a subscriber to the podcast). This is the link:
I didn't know it was available this way and got it from Vimeo for $5. For me the content was worth it but this may vary from person to person. The link for Vimeo is:
For anyone curious here is a list of the topics from the questions: * Fear of losing something about the personality or humanity of the meditator by reducing thoughts. * Pure Consciousness. Consciousness without the senses. * Illusion of Self and what is real? * Knowing what is like to feel like one is behind the eyes, how does it feel like when that is not the case anymore? * Using Spirituality in the subtitle of the book Waking Up, why use that word? * Sam being an atheist when it comes to religion but being agnostic when it comes to reincarnation. * Is there a correlation between progress in meditation and intellectual honesty? * Is permanent Enlightenment possible? * Sam's writing process and getting into flow. * Discomfort in the body while meditating. * Consciousness, is it all emerging from the brain or does Sam think there is some quality to consciousness outside time/space. * How would a community look like if all it's members subscribed to Sam's views (in particular the ideas of No-Self and No Free Will). * Meditation and finding meaning to ones existence by that practice. * When Sam travel to India as a young man, how did he evade falling into religious ideas that are common in those communities. * Does Sam believe in Unspoken Transmissions from teacher to student that is part of various traditions. * Limitations of using states of flow or immersion in films as analogies to losing the sense of self. * Using technology to expedite the benefits of meditations. Getting feedback from an fMRI while meditating. * Does experience in meditation help Sam be quick on his feet and clear when communicating in public. * Using Sam's meaning of Spirituality in the context of AA's 12 step program. * Sam has mention in the past that taking LSD is like being strapped to a rocket and that learning to meditate is like raising a sail, is there anything in between? * What would secular institutions of spirituality look like?

2021.12.08 18:45 FearlessStaff2072 My mom is making my life miserable what to do?
I'm homeschooled and I live with my mom.she stays at home all day and doesn't do much. I've always excelled in school but lately my grades have gone down because of several things. First she is an extremely anxious person and whenever I'm with her my whole body countracts. I feel her anxiety and I sometimes get panick attacks when I see her. Second I'm a vegetarian-- people eat whatever they want I don't care-- but she doesn't allow me to open the window. The smell of meat makes me sick and remains in my bedroom and the rest of the house the whole afternoon and sometimes until late in the evening. I have a very hard time concentrating when I smell that all day. I told her that so many times but she told me that I'm a tyrant for asking her to open the window and for working on her own anxiety. I'm so sick sometimes because of the anxiety and the smell that I can't eat or drink anything all day until she goes to bed. I open the window, wait an hour that the smell goes away and that she falls asleep so I can feel calm. Then I can eat and drink. Not sure what to do as it's Bev me really difficult to live normally. I think it'd called complex PTSD. Talking to someone won't change anything as she will still be stressed out. I'd love to go out to the gym but I'm weak because I can't eat much and we're broke....any advice?

I know there's a lot of crazy drivers, but holy crap there are so many crazy pediatrics too. There are some people who will cross from middle of the road into traffic and get pissed that I had to slam on the brakes. Like dude chill the fuck out and cross when there isn't a freaking car 15 feet away from you going 40 mph

2021.12.08 18:45 Tg2501 Do you guys prefer White collar or Blue collar jobs?
Feel like most of this generation is more leaned towards working in an office over a trade. What are your guys opinions would you rather sit at a desk or be out working with your hands?

2021.12.08 18:45 girlinapinksweater Hoping to Buy Resold Tickets for Feb. 26!!!
Hi everyone -
Created a reddit account to post. I work as a personal assistant and my boss wants tickets to the Feb. 26 show in Vegas, ideally section 104 or 204. By the time she mentioned she wanted to go, the option to register as a verified fan had expired. I tried explaining that there may not be a public onsale and she was unhappy. I don't have any wild sob stories about why she deserves the tickets, other than she's a very recent breast cancer survivor and it would be a mother-daughter trip for her and her 17 year old to connect over something they both love.
Does anyone have two tickets they'd be willing to sell? Or know of anyone who does??? Could match or go up to even double face price.
Please let me know! Want to do this fairly, legally, and above-board!

2021.12.08 18:45 CuriousSilverRelic My sunfish/elephant toe collection has grown a bit since my last post. As I stated in previous post. These particular knives are not high dollar but they are decent quality. Maybe later on I’ll get a few high end ones to add to the collection. I just luv those fat blades.
