John Baker, one of the editors who worked closely with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in the writing of Trungpa’s spiritual masterpiece Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism talks openly and honestly with Jeff Carreira about his deep devotion to the spiritual path and his teacher. In a lively exchange we learn about the early days of this great Tibetan master’s arrival in America and the beginning of his teaching in Boulder, Colorado. Along the way we discuss many subtle of the spiritual path and the challenges of true discipleship.

“When I talk about him giving ‘pointing out’ instructions, that makes it sound like it’s a lesson, but it wasn’t. It was the relationship he opened up between him and the me, him and the student, and once that happens every time you’re with him, it’s happening again.”
