      Emptiness and Joyful Freedom

      by Greg Goode and Tomas Sander

      The pinnacle of Buddhism's understanding of reality is the emptiness of all things. Exploring reality towards the realization of emptiness is shockingly radical. It uncovers an exhilarating freedom with nowhere to stand, while engendering a loving joy that engages the world.

      This path-breaking book employs the emptiness teachings in a fresh, innovative way. Goode and Sander don’t rely solely on historical models and meditations. Instead, they have created over eighty original meditations on the emptiness of the self, issues in everyday life, and spiritual paths. These meditations are guided both by Buddhist insights and cutting-edge Western tools of inquiry, such as positive psychology, neuroscience, linguistic philosophy, deconstruction, and skepticism.

      The result is a set of liberating and usable tools for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.

      This Book in a Nutshell 

      The goal of this book is to introduce the reader to “emptiness,” 
      which is the pinnacle of Buddhist understanding of reality. 
      To realize something as empty means to realize that it does not exist in the 
      solid, self-contained way that we attribute to it. This insight about 
      how things exist often seems abstract or inconsequential at first, 
      but it is surprisingly profound. It can entirely transform how we 
      experience ourselves and our place in the world. In fact, realizing 
      emptiness is closely linked to achieving “enlightenment,” which for 
      Buddhism is the ideal outcome of human development. 
      The benefits of understanding emptiness, even partially, 
      include a deep sense of freedom and connectedness with the 
      world. This deep sense overcomes the alienation that many of us 
      (post-)moderns feel. When we understand emptiness,
      we experience an unshakable ease and lightness in life. 
      For thousands of years, these benefits have inspired people to take up the study 
      of emptiness.

      The most significant challenge to understanding emptiness is 
      practical. The emptiness teachings can be hard. They proceed by 
      taking a very precise look at our experience. They identify and 
      correct the errors we make about things. This process is a subtle, 
      often demanding undertaking. The main reason we have written 
      the present book is to make the emptiness teachings and their 
      benefits more accessible. We approach this by creating meditations 
      based on modern Western culture, that is, on ideas with which you 
      may already be familiar with. Some of these meditations might also 
      be called experiments, investigations or analyses. Using Western 
      material to teach emptiness is the major innovation of this book. By 
      presenting emptiness outside of its traditional cultural packaging
      we hope to make its profound benefits also relevant to people who 
      may not consider themselves to be Buddhists.

      We hope that through reading this book you will:
      1) understand what the emptiness teachings are about, 
      2) taste experientially what emptiness is like,
      3) discover how these teachings can help you live a more 
      satisfying life, 
      4) learn how to use some powerful Western meditation tools 
      to deepen your insight. 

      A Quick Taste

      We all have tastes of emptiness, even if we don’t study this teaching. 
      A taste of emptiness is an experience in which we realize that 
      something doesn’t exist in the exaggerated way we had thought. 
      As a result, the thing seems much lighter. It seems sweeter, more 
      flexible, more alive and richer with possibilities.
