In this vibrant and impactful satsang, Adyashanti offers valuable clarity on how the teachings of emptiness differ from the teachings of love. He delineates how the spiritual journey is at first a negating process of identification; then, it is an orientation of affirming every experiential aspect of life. When our emptiness nature comes back in and fully encounters our humanity—both the sublime and horrific experiences—it is the love of it all that allows liberation to fully bloom.
