Join us this Sunday, August 31st, for a rich conversation with Candice O’Denver entitled “Open Intelligence Outshines Experience — Uniquely in Each of Us.”
Candice O’Denver’s “Balanced View” teachings on identity and intelligence are radical, innovative, unique and original. Even though they are resonant with the “pure consciousness” teachings of dzogchen they are non-traditional and disarmingly direct. Her approach cuts to the root, using fresh, intuitive, universal language, like “open intelligence,” “instinctive recognition,” “outshining,” and “being of benefit.”
And the teaching, rather than being a complex, esoteric wisdom available only to initiates, is open to all and for the benefit of all. Paradoxically, though, it is always uniquely arrived at by each individual.
Balanced View draws on Candice’s lifelong familiarity with computers, the Internet, and information theory, as well as over 40 years of study of the implications of critical theory, art, and literature, and also her deep engagement in the Sanskrit and Tibetan languages, art, music, literature and cultures.
One summary of Candice’s innovation is, “In short moments of clarity, repeated many times, your natural open source intelligence becomes more and more obvious until it is predominant at all times. Open intelligence is illuminated at the crucial juncture of open intelligence and data.” The freedom offered by open intelligence is that we are no longer “victims” of data.
Complete relaxation is the core of open intelligence and spontaneously being of benefit to others through whatever is shining forth in the moment. Recently for Candice, this involved walking off stage at one of her teaching events and inviting others to come up and show whatever strengths, gifts and talents they wanted to show—so that others could shine forth with their own benefit. “We become youthful and lively,” says Candice, “because we are simply being who we actually are.”
In our conversation, we discuss many things, including the “Massive Vibe” project, in which Candice has worked with an international team of renowned vocalists and musicians who deliver the direct transmission of comprehensive open intelligence via a new style of music—combining the off-beat and silence with radically innovative word combinations to create music people can not only hear, but see.
I recently visited Candice at her home, and we recorded a remarkable conversation I’m delighted to be able to share with you this Sunday.
I hope you’ll tune in!
