Description

A master at conducting "theme meetings," Bennett could draw out the most profound lessons from the most faltering of contributions. He helped people to see for themselves the practical core of the spiritual path and avoid the twin evils of doubt and philosophizing.

The Five talks in this book are taken from meetings recorded at Sherborne House between 1972 and 1975. At present, we are able to publish only this small selection from the hundreds of tapes. More are forthcoming.

This volume reprints the introductory essay "The Thematic Technique", along with the four volumes of the Sherborne Theme Talk Series, "First Liberation", "Noticing", "Food" and "Material Objects".

"The Technique of Theme consists in this: in persistently and with great determination occupying one's mind with a specific clear notion so that one can penetrate into it in depth. The main purpose is to go through the verbal and conceptual level of understanding to a direct perception of the real world to which it belongs. "This is what we have set ourselves to undertake [at Sherborne House]. It is not at all easy for people to understand that the way of life that is dominant in the world leads to nothing at all. The whole of it is now illusion. This is impossible, not merely difficult but impossible, for people to grasp until they have had experience of looking at it from another world and seeing it how it is." --from Chapter 1
