I am a bit busy at the moment, as usual, but I am interested in the topic and would like dialogue to unfold. I am particularly interested in the connections between the Buddhist arts and pedagogy. David Fancy (of Brock University) wrote an interesting piece recently about mindfulness in the classroom and its relation to Deleuze and Guattari's "becoming-imperceptible." These type of experiments are things that really draw me in.
I wonder, perhaps, in addition to talking through ideas here, if we could offer a series of instructions for brief performances/experiments that put Buddhist thought in action, and then report back here with our findings. Or, likewise, if you know of any other experiments, we could post them here. For me, it's easier to think about these ideas when they are grounded in praxis of some kind since the unfolding of no-mind (for example) is easier to see in action (again, for me).
