There will be one a week for the next three weeks.
So I just joined at the five dollar level and it appears I dont have access to Malcoms first lecture, just FYI if you were thinking of joining specifically for Malcom.
Strange. The first lecture is available to even free members. I did a quick check and things look okay on the back end, but I’ll make sure the team get in touch with you about it on Monday to get you access to the lecture series.
Sorry, its all set. Platform is a bit clumsy on old phone. Is there a way to see only content that is available with subscription? Def will upgrade when I can. Nice wotk!

Really happy with the full access Wisdom membership, if you can afford it the $30 it's well worth it. The BAW course I'm taking is fantastic.

It was good stuff, never thought I'd see you mention the Four Noble Truths in a Dzogchen context, like some kind of dirty gradualist;)

As I pointed out, Dzochen addresses the same existential questions as the rest of Buddhadharma. The main difference is that it actually explains the origin of suffering in detail, other than the" pluck the dart out of the eye" approach of other yānas.

In explaining the origin of suffering in detail, does Dzochen practice bring into observation the process of suffering, showing that first subtle footing and its progression? In DZochen practice, is it possible to observe this process in action?

Does the practice of seeing, recognizing and understanding this process, in itself, bring relief from suffering or is something else needed?
In seeing this process, is this where bodhichitta is naturally present?

It explains the whole kit and kaboodle, from beginning to end.

Check out Myriad Worlds by Jamgon Kongtrul if you want a blow by blow, as one example.. not easy reading but it's pretty cool.

Not the best account, IMO. Better to read the Treasury of Genuine Meaning or Buddhahood in this Life.
