I’m not an expert meditation and I’m not a regular practitioner of meditation. But this meditation works for me because it is only 7 minutes long, it uses imagery of organizing a desk to declutter your mind (which works for me because I’m usually sitting AT MY DESK!), and guides you to organize or cut out clutter that you don’t need on your desk, I mean, your life!
Discovered podcasts by Stephen West on Philosophize This! He has a 5 part series on Gilles Deleuze and it is excellent! His explanation is clear, easy to understand, and he argues for the relevance and significance of Deleuze’s ideas. So so good!
Deleuze’s concepts – shift of focus from being to becoming, affirming existence in terms of difference, concept of machines instead of substance, and importance of the interconnectedness of events over identity – are explained by Stephen West in clear way that captures nuances and complexity of ideas. I am really impressed.
I recommend listening to all 5 podcasts in order, but if you only have time for one or have background knowledge of Deleuze, you could work your way backwards.
Thank you, Stephen West for your amazing podcasts on Deleuze! And how about some future podcasts on affect theory???
