Shinzen Young in Los Angeles: "Do nothing"

Shinzen.org; Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society; Wisdom Quarterly

Shinzen Young talks about a technique he calls "do nothing." It is like what other traditions call choiceless awareness, just sitting, the great perfection (dzogchen), and mahamudra. Instructions: VIDEO

"Let whatever happens happen. As soon as you're aware of an intention to control your attention -- drop that intention."
