CTP #016 - Daniel Ingram (Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha)
Daniel M Ingram is a high level meditation practitioner and emergency medicine physician.
He is the author of Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha: An Unusually Hardcore Dharma Book and is the founder of popular meditation resource dharmaoverground.org
Daniel and I chatted about the fundamentals of buddhism and meditation practise; the nature of thought and thought/body identity; tips for increasing visualisation capacity; morality and video games; technology and limits to empathy; food in buddhism; sex/celibacy in buddhism; the potential benefits and dangers of psychedelics; causality vs objective reality; philosophy of personal identity; risks/benefits of high level meditation; and the intersection of medicine and meditation - with a few tangents thrown in for good measure.
Recorded in Christchurch, New Zealand
