For having a sense for how all phenomena mirror each other, intertwine, and arise only in contact with one another, radically undoes our more usual dualistic, isolated-in-the-head, feel for the world. Perhaps what is most radical about an experiential approach is that it gives authority to our experience, all the more so as we learn to listen to and focus it.
