Self-Paced Programs

Gratitude, Generosity, and Forgiveness :  Online Course

This self-paced program explores gratitude, generosity, and forgiveness practices as offered in Stephen’s book Buddha’s Heart.
Gratitude practice highlights the unbroken connection with all of life. We can see how we have been tenderly cared for and supported in every aspect of our life.
Generosity involves being open-hearted in giving and receiving. It touches on scarcity and abundance.
Forgiveness practice allows us to seek forgiveness, offer forgiveness while releasing the hurt, anger, and hatred we can carry from past wrongs.
Each of these practices support wise open-heartedness.

The program includes Dharma talks and guided meditation for deepening awareness and opening to the Oneness of Reality.

Zen, Koans, and Kenshō: Online Course

This one-day retreat explores the use of Koans in the Zen tradition, the relationship of Koans to Awakening (called Kenshō) and the impact and effect of Kenshō on our personal consciousness and sense of identity.

The instruction and dharma talks are supplemented by meditations such as “Innate Goodness meditation”, “Silent Illumination meditation” (also called Shikintaza) and innovated guided meditations touching into the source of all creation and manifestation – the Absolute.

In participating in this self-paced retreat, you will more clearly understand the functioning of the Absolute, grasp the Zen tradition more fully, appreciate the use of koans in spiritual realization and maturing of the personality.  Additionally, you will potentially feel and sense directly the ever-present connection and relationship to the Absolute in both meditation as well as everyday life.
