Sunday Integral Dharma Calls

Led by Doshin
Online
Mar 22, 2020 11:00 am PDT - Dec 22, 2020 11:00 am PST

These talks began examining the Covid-19 pandemic as a Dharma Gate, which means that these circumstances are presenting great opportunities for learning. After 10 weeks, we are beginning to add some Zen wisdom, deep conflicts and a simple Integral framework to make sense of some of the new possibilities of “business as usual” that we all are facing. The call is offered freely in the spirit of generosity. It is the first of several Internet offerings we will be bringing forth for the benefit of all beings in these difficult times that are providing great opportunities to change.

Integrating Your Shadows - a Path of Liberation [Online Retreat]

Led by Doshin

Aug 16, 2020 2:00 pm PDT - Aug 23, 2020 10:00 am PDT

Shadows are those things that we hide, repress or deny about ourselves. They are a primary cause of our negative, emotional reactivity and they prevent us from fully and completely expressing our true nature. In order to live fully free and loving lives, we must shine the light of Pure Awareness into the darkness to illuminate these shadows and then integrate them into our very being. These Shadows can become allies! We can transmute them into Right Action, Pure Discernment and Selfless Equanimity.

Yokoji Zen Mountain Center, CA

Shadows are those things that we hide, repress or deny about ourselves. Emotions are the gateway to mining the gold that hides in the shadows!

From the stability of pure selfless awareness you will recognize the real nature and purpose of your emotions, and then find that Your ANGST really is your Liberation! You will learn to illuminate your ego structures and explore your individual shadows. Most importantly, you will learn tools that will help you find more peace, joy and creativity in your life.

Integral Zen 7 Day Retreat

Led by Doshin
Venwoude, Netherlands
Oct 5, 2020 4:00 am PDT - Oct 11, 2020 4:00 am PDT

It is essential that you awaken, and there is a fierce, yet compassionate, insistence that you do so now. Meditating and sitting quietly is not enough! You must realize your inherent freedom. You must answer the question, “Who are you?” from the purest depths of realization, moving far beyond the normal modes of speculative thought. This retreat offers men and women the opportunity to experience that we are fundamentally free right now, and yet spiritual insight must always flow through a relative and wholly constructed and fully conditioned human ego.
