Shi-ne sounds like what i learned as shamatha without an object from Tim Olmsted of Tergar, but I got confused by the distinction drawn between shamatha and shi-ne in the FAQ. If you are willing, can you clarify?
Hi Charlie! ()
Sure, can be difficult to shift from one-pointed focus to sustaining open attention/shi-ne. Another thing that folks, even teachers, stumble is to confuse natural state/rigpa with open attention or what is commonly meant with shi-ne. I stumbled on that one too at one point :)
Here’s a workshop of mine on these three which I call intention (one-pointed focus in three-dimensional space), attention (focus of 360 degrees in three-dimensional space) and awareness (zero-dimensional space): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADwZLjtT2QY
