Lunch and Learn: Radical Authenticity

Lunch & Learn

Presented by Ken Bradford, PhD

Zoom webinar details will be provided after registration.

This talk clarifies the nature of Inauthenticity and distinguishes between Psychological Authenticity: daring to live one’s own life rather than someone else’s by sourcing oneself from one’s true desires, aversions and indifferences; and Radical Authenticity:  which observes that even when we acknowledge and live true to our personal loves and hates, we remain bound to those inclinations-compulsions. (This is the Buddha’s 2nd Noble Truth.) Beyond self-centered authentic presence is naked, spontaneous, non-self-centered presence.
