Entering the Way
In this series of talks, Lama Nicholas explores what it means to live life holistically in terms of balance, oneness and order. He explores the basic principles of holism and unity and contrasts this with the western version of separation and division. Through these series of talks one will come to understand life and health as an inter-connected system which must be constantly adapted to and changed relative to space and time and one’s constitution and circumstances.
This first video is a short introduction to Lama Nicholas's four talks.
Talk 1 - The Way of Harmony and Balance - First part of two
In this talk, Lama Nicholas looks at health and wellness through the principle of balance and harmony. He discusses how this balance comes about by aligning oneself with nature, not in opposition to it, by adapting to the universal laws of the Tao. He compares this perspective with another imbalanced version of reality as seen through duality, opposition, competition, artificiality, separation and absolutism.

Talk 2 - The Way of Oneness
In this talk, Lama Nicholas looks at health and wellness through the principle of oneness and how this oneness comes about by becoming one with nature. He compares the Western way of pursuing an absolute truth and reality by separating man from nature and mind from body, with the holisticway of uniting man with nature and in seeing things in terms of relativity and by integrating mind, body and spirit with nature and one’s intrinsic nature and the Tao.
