Welcome to a special bookclub episode of Escaping Samsara, where we delve into the profound teachings of Chogyam Trungpa’s classic, “Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism.” In this episode, we’re thrilled to host Ty Landrum, an esteemed yoga teacher known for his insightful and deeply rooted understanding of Eastern and Western philosophy.
We discuss the concept of spiritual materialism, the tendency to see spirituality as a means to enhance our ego rather than to dissolve it. And Ty discusses how to apply these teachings on the mat and in daily life, helping us to navigate our spiritual journey with more awareness and authenticity.
This episode isn’t just for avid readers or seasoned practitioners. It’s for anyone curious about the intersection of yoga, Buddhism, and the journey towards true self-awareness. Whether you’re new to these concepts or a long-time follower of Trungpa’s work, you’ll find fresh perspectives and thoughtful discussions to inspire your practice.
