What kind of meditation is this? What's Pragmatic Dharma?

Pragmatic Dharma is a modern approach to the path of awakening. It pulls from the time-tested teachings and practices of the Buddhist tradition, but is simultaneously infused with a modern mindset that isn’t afraid to tinker with the traditional formulation.

Pragmatic Dharma, at its core, is about asking the question: What works? If something doesn’t work, then it’s relinquished. If it works, it’s used. If something else works better—at certain times or for certain people—then we go with that. In that way Pragmatic Dharma is a completely practical way of approaching the spiritual path. (Quote from Vince Horn).

Who is this suitable for?
Totally suitable for beginners but geared to those who are interested in making progress on the spiritual path which leads to Awakening.

    I have put yes, because I am 75 per cent sure I will make it, it just depends on my boss, who is a little unpredictable.
