I would strongly recommend Malcolm's Dzogchen course on this site. It's excellent. The first lecture is free - it explains the history of the different lineages and empowerments - and that alone is information that's hard to find anywhere else
I'm going through the B. Allan Wallace series first, but Malcolm's are in my library.
And, an Alan Wallace lecture series has been filmed and is coming soon.

Also, we are currently filming a lecture series with John Dunne as part of a science and philosophy book project we are working on with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. And, tomorrow night I will be hosting a live Q&A with John on Varieties of Buddhist Meditation. I'll make the page open so that everyone can join us. Please bring your questions to ask via the chat. It is at 6 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 6... and here is the link https://wisdomexperience.org/livestream-john-dunne/

Great lectures from Malcolm - excellent background information.

I really miss his posts.

So do I, but honestly I think this is a better format for him to share his knowledge. It allows him to go deeper

"The essence of meditation practice is to let go of all your expectations about meditation. All the qualities of your natural mind -- peace, openness, relaxation, and clarity -- are present in your mind just as it is. You don't have to do anything different. You don't have to shift or change your awareness. All you have to do while observing your mind is to recognize the qualities it already has."

I binged on the three modules on Wisdom last night. I learned a huge amount, although it really was like drinking from the firehose.

Oh god, I've just joined Facebook in order to get access to Malcolm again... :crazy: :techproblem:

This would obviously be a question best directed at Malcolm, but what is the best route to being as educated as he is? I have been to many seminars etc., but they are not not in the same level of detail nor deal with the same topics which Malcolm talks about.

The book or the course? As far as I understand, you only get access to the full BAW courses with the $30 membership, and the $5 mainly gives access to a few videos and the books. Maybe Daniel can clarify it for us?

The academy courses like Foolish Dharma are only available at the $30 level. The current lecture series is available at $5 level.

So, if you are on the $5 level you will want to watch the Malcolm lecture series now because when the Wallace lecture series is made available, then Malcolm’s will only be available to the $30 level.

And thanks for all the support! I’m trying to make high quality dharma available to as many people as possible and it’s so encouraging to see these posts.

And, don’t forget to join me for the live stream on meditation and science starting in 2 hours it will be fantastic.

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.
