The mind is a wonderful thing, capable of brilliant thought and creativity, as well as bringing misery and suffering. How can we understand and work with it? How can we channel this great gift and resource to bring love and joy to our lives and relationships? In this course, Zen Master Genpo Merzel will work with us to explore and directly experience how our minds can become our greatest friend and ally.
Dennis Genpo Merzel is a revolutionary in the tradition of the old Zen Masters who so embodied Buddhist teaching that they were able to revitalize and transform it for their own day and age. As Buddhism moved from India to China to Japan and other Asian cultures, it found unique expression in each culture that made its fundamental teachings resonate for a new time and place. Genpo Merzel is working to transmit the essence of the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is readily accessible to Westerners and relevant to our everyday life.
This course is applicable to the following audiences:
· Therapists who want to learn some new skill for their personal life and practice.
· Genpo Merzel students, who have been working with Genpo and want to learn this skill more deeply.
· Jungians, as it integrates the Jungian oriented method of voice dialogue and Zen in a Western way as Jung suggested Eastern religion should be approached.
