This is a course for experienced practitioners of Insight Dialogue with a committed meditation practice (3 or more years of both).

With these fundamentals firmly in place, we would like to introduce and explore the lyricism of Zen poetry and the power of koans as a way to shed a fresh light on awakening together through Insight Dialogue practice.

Koans are stories that erode our fixed ideas about the world and who we are. An example:

Someone asked the teacher Zhaozhou, “What is meditation?”
Zhaozhou replied, “Well, it’s not meditation.”
“Why isn’t it meditation?”
“It’s alive! It’s alive!”

This course will be limited to 22 participants.  Before registering, please make sure you can commit to at least 7 out of the 8 sessions, so that we can build a strong and consistent container in which we can go deep together.
