How can we work creatively with the energies of these transformative times, to discover a creative and centered path to our heart's sure release? Welcoming the energies of change with mindful awareness, we can respond rather than react, and thus develop resiliency and create that life which is our path with heart. This is tangible: it begins with mindfulness practice, through which we return to our own luminous awareness, like clear water. This course combines Zen practice with creative approaches drawn from transpersonal psychology to discover inner resources and create positive outcomes in everyday life. Activities include Zen practice, kido (Zen chanting) and vision walk. We will also use sacred ceremony and metta meditation to harness the power of group consciousness for the purpose of personal and societal transformation.
