    Asceticism: Skill in Experiencing Discomfort

    Duration: 31 minutes

    This recording gives an interesting history of asceticism (discomfort) as defined in some spiritual traditions and the possible value of using discomfort to initiate a process of purification of consciousness. Whether as a spiritual practice or in our daily living, the question is how to do so skillfully or as paraphrased from Thomas Merton, “…not to suffer more than other people, but…to suffer more effectively.”
