Sunday Integral Dharma Calls

Led by Michael Nelson (Doshin)
Online
Mar 22, 2020 2:00 pm EDT - Apr 30, 2021 3:30 pm EDT

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.
