Donald Rothberg, PhD,
the author of The Engaged Spiritual Life: A Buddhist Approach to Transforming Ourselves and the World, is a member of the Spirit Rock Teachers Council in Northern California, and teaches meditation, daily life practice, and engaged spirituality. He has practiced meditation since 1976.
In this workshop, we will combine traditional Buddhist practice of the “Divine Abodes” (brahmavihara) of lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity, with movement meditation and ecstatic dance, to help us access and cultivate these wonderful and transformative qualities of the open heart. We will particularly focus on developing embodied expressions of these four abodes based on our understanding that embodied practices are the key to making the qualities real in our daily lives.
