UPCOMING OFFERINGS:

2022 Demystifying Awakening Mentoring Program


This one-year mentoring program, commencing April 2022, is based on Stephen’s forthcoming book Demystifying Awakening: A Buddhist Path of Realization, Embodiment, and Freedom and a new manuscript called Trust in Awakening which is a re-working of an ancient Zen poem, with written commentary.

The program is a wonderfully rare opportunity for dharma practitioners to deepen awareness and work with the common resistances to Awakening and realization, while opening to the profound awakenings possible in this kind of deep exploration with one-on-one support in a safe, holding container. To support this, the group will be limited in participation to maintain cohesion and intimacy.

Registration for the 2022 cohort is closed. If you’d like to hear more about future cohorts, please write to buddhasheartpress@gmail.com.

The program will include:

  • Monthly Zoom daylong gatherings (see schedule below)
  • Monthly 30-minute one-on-one Zoom interviews with Stephen, to explore the practices and their impact
  • Monthly readings from Demystifying Awakening and supplemental materials
  • A year-round interactive platform for group discussion about course content, discussion questions, and readings with direct feedback and interaction from Stephen

Fee and application: The investment for this program is $1,495 USD.
