About

My name is Will Wright. I am a musician, writer, teacher, carpenter, husband, and father of five. My life-long spiritual journey has been influenced by Jiddu Krishnamurti, psychedelics, my fellow students at the Ali Akbar College of Music and an endless list of brilliant musicians from many traditions, Zen (esp. Suzuki Roshi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Philip Kapleau, & Paul Reps), everyone at the original Mindfulness Practice Center, started in Woodstock, Vermont, my absurd and mostly comical pursuit of the mastery of golf and my other-worldly golfing buddies, yoga, Tibetan Buddhism, Vipassana, various mantra and meditation techniques, and the many amazing family members and friends who led the way. 

My search took a dramatic turn when I was introduced to the Hindu teachings of Advaita Vedanta, especially those of Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj. It ceased for good after attending a retreat with Rupert Spira, who spent many years learning from his teacher and friend Francis Lucille, and then meeting John Wheeler, who had immersed himself in the works of Nisargadatta via Sailor Bob Adamson.

This blog has nothing to do with concepts, beliefs, or opinions. It has everything to do with the direct experiential discovery of our true identity – pure consciousness, or aware presence – whose inherent nature is one of peace, happiness, and love.  And the wonderful fact that there are not two (Advaita = one without a second).

I live, work, and play in Vermont’s Green Mountains. I’m lucky and grateful to be surrounded and inspired by gifted, insightful, and loving family members, along with our extended family of creative and warm-hearted friends.

One thought on “About

  1. Hmmmmm. Interesting resources. Nuanced and subtle things being said. I’ve been IN, not just on, the Path for 40+ years and over the past several have come to a breakthrough into nonduality in and out of daily meditation, where the equipoise between choices (“doing/non-doing. neither one nor the other, neither even that, etc.”) where the dive into radical emptiness occurs. We are, each and all, already/always awake, because the encompassing unbounded awareness, which is “our” identity is the natural state of Being, so you can’t NOT be that. So the apparent paradox is the nature of the path that curls and self-refers back into itself within unboundedness. Even the mental ego arises within that field at the same time as it seemingly stands in the way of our experiencing awakeness, enlightened awareness, and that’s the darndest thing, isn’t it??!! Ergo, the “solution” seems to be: “give up control”…..surrender….allow all contractions in your field of consciousness soften, relax, and rest. Subtle stuff, this. I know meditators of years and years who are unaware of the subtle levels of effort that “get in the way,” which, of course, even obstacles are part of the path…until they are not. This tripless-trip is the trippiest trip. round-trip that never occurs and does occur, that anyone could have imagined. We are “human beings,” and Being, n o w….that could never be lost or gained…is the “simplest” thing in the Kosmos…..Established in Being, then act; established in action, then Be. Love, Light, and Laughter,
    Paul
