Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:384909514CC G+

Join Sharon Salzberg, with Tsoknyi Rinpoche and me for The Great Tributaries Retreat at Upaya: http://www.upaya.org/programs/event.php?id=1061

One day as my teacher, John Friend, was demonstrating a pose, he made an awkward-looking movement, then rebalanced. Coming out of it he asked, "What just happened?" One by one, my classmates offered a Sanskrit name for that extra little twist. Finally, John turned to me and repeated his question, "What just happened?" I replied, "To be honest, I think you fell." "You're right," he said. "I fell. Then I started over. That's good yoga. . ."

Often we can achieve an even better result when we stumble yet are willing to start over, when we don't give up after a mistake, when something doesn't come easily but we throw ourselves into trying, when we're not afraid to appear less than... more »

Join us this weekend Apr 18, 2014 — Apr 20, 2014
for TOUCHING THE EARTH AND SKY:

This weekend retreat gives us the rare opportunity to drop into the deep questions related to time, life, death, rebirth, and no birth, no death. At Upaya, we touch into the story of the life of the Buddha, his suffering and awakening; we look at this in relation to the season of Easter and Passover and how compassion and wisdom unfold in our lives.

Saturday we spend in the ancient Pueblo ruins and cave dwellings of Tsankawi and meditate on what it means to live a life that is both finite and infinite, separate and connected.

This evening we honor the Full Moon with Fusatsu, the traditional ceremony of atonement and renewal of the Peacemaker precepts in which we perform a series of full bows together, touching our heads to the earth and lifting our palms to the sky, returning to what connects each of us and lifting up the awakened nature in all of us.

Local sangha: join us in the temple at 5:30 for this beautiful ceremony.

June 4 - June 8, we will explore the self through the experience of bhavana or cultivation, bringing forth the great mind qualities of this earth: stability, resourcefulness, resilience, absorption, inwardness, impermanence, interconnectedness. We touch into these qualities through sitting meditation, mountain walking, gardening, and learning about the deep history of the earth in the southwest and her cultures, the vastness of applied vision in the act of gardening, and the truth of the mountains tell as we walk amongst them. Come join us for this extraordinary program!

"So, I said to Ram Dass, come on over to where U Pandita is staying because it’s the Buddha’s birthday, you know, we’ll celebrate the Buddha’s birthday. So, we went over, and it turned out that the way the Burmese monks like to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday was by having us sit silently watching them eat, silently, and then having us sit silently while they got up and left the room. So Ram Dass turned to me and said, 'You Buddhists really know how to throw a party.'”

"Many outcast Indian communities refer to themselves as 'Dalit,' a term meaning “broken to pieces.” But many also identify as 'Ambedkarites,' in reference to and respect for Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the towering leader of a modern untouchable movement."

Reality? What's So Good About Reality, Anyway?

Episode Description: Ray Olson discusses what he considers a deep mystery: reality. What is reality? How do we perceive it? Even if we are able to perceive it, does it not last for just a moment? Ray begins his exploration of reality by looking at it is opposite: delusion. Delusion is all of our thoughts, dreams, illusions or ideas. Basically anything that we conceptualize is delusional.

Ray offers the story of Fayan’s Not Knowing. Fayan was on a pilgrimage. Dizang asked, “What is the purpose of your pilgrimage?” Fayan said, “I don’t know.” Dizang said, “Ah! Not knowing is most intimate.”

"I have been travelling to India in recent years, working with Ambedkarite Buddhists, peoples who used to be classified as “untouchable,” caught in an ancient and oppressive web of caste. Based on that experience I offer here a concise view of the suffering of caste as a sign of the First Noble Truth in our world, in confidence that eventually we will see how this suffering itself offers impetus for liberation. Our Buddhist sisters and brothers in India are not there yet. We are not there yet, in the crumbling edifice of empire. But on a clear day we can catch a glimpse of that Beloved Community. We can try to move towards it."

"We have to create the proper space to manifest compassion... When things come up that try to close this open heart, then what do we do with that?... When emptiness and compassion come together then that becomes ultimate bodhicitta or ultimate compassion."

“After Buddhism” with Stephen Batchelor & Roshi Joan Halifax Audio Set

In this opening session, Roshi Joan Halifax and Stephen Batchelor discuss the meaning of the topic of this program, “After Buddhism.” Roshi Joan introduces a vision of a non-Buddhistic Buddhism, or Dharma beyond sectarianism. She then describes the format of this program as it will unfold over the course of the week. Stephen then elaborates his own approach to a Buddhism outside of the “container of creedal thinking.”

The Four Noble Truths In Our World (Part #1): Sensei Alan Senauke

The Four Noble Truths was the Buddha’s great discovery, his first gift to us. In briefest form, these Truths are: the Nature of Suffering, the Cause of Suffering, the End of Suffering, and the Path to the End of Suffering. In the classical sutras and twenty-five hundred years of subsequent commentary each aspect of these Truths has been minutely considered and taught in the context of individual life. If one wishes to be free, one can use the Truths as an analytical tool, and follow the path of practice.

"Our innate mind is not different from the Buddhas and bodhisattvas, but we are covered by obscurations. These obscurations, however, are temporary. We are deluded within them, but this delusion is not our ultimate reality. We can become awakened. The Buddhas and bodhisattvas are awakened from this temporary, seeming obscuration. So please focus on that. I will pray for that. May this coming year be a meaningful year for you."
