Seeing That Frees leads the meditator through layers of practice. It approaches the Buddha’s teaching at increasingly deeper levels. Starting from first principles, Rob Burbea explains the various terms and practices.
“It is a book about practice, and about the profoundly freeing insights that anyone who practices can discover and unfold from themselves first hand.”Rob Burbea
The reader should have an established meditation practice with exposure to cultivation and insight techniques. However, it could be used as a navigation aid for someone starting to practice using other resources.
One of Rob Burbea’s qualities as a teacher was his ability to start from where the student was, and find the practices that were helpful to them in that moment, while never putting a limit on what they might ultimately be capable of as they developed.
