Buddhist Geeks Trainings – Past Live Group Trainings
Awareness meditation is the practice of simply being. When we let go of all sense of doing, of directing attention, of identifying with anything we are aware of, we naturally rest in the vast, effortless spaciousness of awareness itself–this simple feeling of being. In this 10-week training we will explore awareness meditation through a variety of doorways of experience, including mindful awareness, heartful awareness, inquiring into awareness, and embodied awareness.
Waking Up & Growing Up in a World in Crisis
This training is a deepening of the foundation cultivated in our introductory Integral Dharma Training. Our focus for Advanced Integral Dharma is integrating Waking Up and Growing Up into a single practice and experience, combining states of consciousness and stages of development through The Phases of Insight and Ken Wilber’s model of ego development (first created by Vince Fakhoury Horn as the ‘Wilber-Horn Matrix’). We will inhabit these states and stages experientially through Social Meditation, particularly the form of Zen Noting. What we discover through these practices and exploration will be done in the context of being of benefit in an increasingly complex world in crisis.
In this 10-week Integral Dharma Training we’ll explore the practices and integration of wakefulness, healing, and transformation in service of our lives, the world, and the planet. In particular we will practice together in the context of courage, hope, uncertainty, and crisis, exploring their paradox, polarity, and interconnectedness in our practice, daily lives, and as part of our nascent planetary culture.
In this training we’ll dive deep into the Phases of Insights and Waves of Wakefulness, two connected contemplative maps, which attempt to describe the deep features of the meditative path as it unfolds over our lifetime. Our journey together will use guided and social practices to invoke these maps within our experience rather than only studying them from the outside. Through mapping awakening we locate ourselves on the journey, orienting us, giving us more confidence on where we’re going next.
The Realization Process Training
Embody your awakening through your whole being through the three tracks of The Realization Process from Judith Blackstone: Nondual Meditation, Embodiment and Movement, and Healing Ground. Led by Fully Certified RP Teacher, Ryan Oelke.
Inquiry, one of our Six Ways to Meditate, is the practice of using a question as a prompt for discovery. In Inquiry meditation we open to the groundlessness of reality, into intimacy with all that is. The questions we work with bring us deeper into a space of radical curiosity. Out of that space new possibilities arise for deepening our embodied wisdom, compassion, and action.
