Completion of 2014 edited talks

At last, rather longer after the event than anticipated, Barry and I have now finished editing and adding pictures to the 12 talks and discussions recorded on the 2014 Summer Retreat. These were on the general themes of the Middle Way and cognitive biases, and all the talks included some discussion of fallacies and cognitive biases and how we can practically avoid them. The most recent one of these to be completed is Middle Way Practice. For a complete list and links to the pages on this site where the talks are Objects, theories and ‘nature’embedded see this page: the talks include ones on attention, self and ego, responsibility, authority, groups, and time (as well as the one you can see here, with its extra furry participants). Alternatively, you can access the series through a YouTube playlist.

I’d like to thank Barry for his help with the editing, and everyone else who was present on the 2014 retreat for their contributions to the discussions. I won’t name them all because they don’t all want to be named, but some of the names are mentioned on individual videos.

He has a Christian background, and about 20 years' past experience of practising Buddhism, but it was his Ph.D. studies in Philosophy that set him on the track of developing a systematic account of the Middle Way beyond any specific tradition.
