Retired Sociology prof, Richard Boyle interviewed 11 senior, respected, North American Buddhist teachers about their life's journey.
“Taken all together, the interviews provide strong support for the argument that the human species possesses – has within its physical being – the capacity for a mode of conscious awareness that is qualitatively different from our ordinary form of consciousness.”
