Wakefulness is our natural state: enlightened, complete,
perfect in wisdom and compassion. It’s not something outside ourselves
that we need to attain or become. But it’s also true that some effort
is required to get in touch with it–and that effort is what spiritual
practice is about.” – From Acharyan Gaylon Ferguson’s “Natural
Wakefulness”

This week on the ID Project Podcast Crystal Gandrud explores the concept of
“Natural Wakefulness” as it relates to the Four Foundations of
Mindfulness.

Acharya Gaylon Ferguson
is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist community and was a
student of Chogyum Trungpa Rinpoche. He is currently faculty at
Interdisciplinary Studies at Naropa University.
