Current and Future Live Trainings and Retreats (Online)

These are trainings in which I am teaching and leading small groups. All trainings are offered through transparent generosity.

Buddhist Geeks Trainings, Starting January 4, 2021

Awareness Meditation Training

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. Groups are led by me or Francis Lacoste.

Integral Dharma Training

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.

Integral Dharma runs on a quarterly basis, where new folks are invited to jump in every few months. The next quarterly training cycle will begin the week of October 12th, 2020 and run for 10 consecutive weeks. Integral Dharma is co-led by a collaborative team of Buddhist Geeks Teachers (me and Lisa Sherman).

Realization Process Training

I hope to offer a training in 2021 (Zoom) focused on Judith Blackstone’s approach, The Realization Process. I invite you to schedule an intro session with me if this type of training is of interest and you’d like to find out more.

Retreats

Periodically I co-lead online Zoom retreats with Buddhist Geeks teachers. Most recently I taught in our Life Retreat in June 2020. The theme changes every retreat, but that retreat was focused on The Phases of Insight. Below you can watch and listen to the dharma talk I gave, What are you practicing for?

When I am teaching at a retreat I will update this page and announce it via the newsletter. You can also see upcoming Buddhist Geeks retreats here.
