In this dialogue with Integral Zen teacher Diane Hamilton, we learn what it means to work with the shadow elements of consciousness before they work with us. For instance, we may be able to access expanded states of awareness, but still get hung up when addressing personal or interpersonal matters. Learn tools to help you address this discrepancy between personal and the transpersonal work, so that your spiritual awareness can be fully manifested in everyday life.
Vimala Thakar passed away on March 11th 2009 in India. In this webcast we honour the life of this deeply enlightened and independent woman, and share our personal experiences of both meeting and interviewing her. She was a rare and inspiring example for us all of what real spiritual attainment looks like, and of integrating the inner and outer life.
"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
