2. Relationships as Spiritual Practice
Relationships are a powerful spiritual practice. As we view each person who comes to us as a gift and as our teacher, we are able to see relationships in an entirely new way. We can also see the ways in which we may still be in the grip of anger, fear, possessiveness or judgment. In this program we go over the trouble spots in relationships, including jealousy, misunderstandings, boredom, lies, and offer new ways of working with them. We discover ways of giving up false expectations, developing parental mind and learning to nourish others and ourselves. In this process true connection with self and others develop, along with fulfillment and joy.

(Specific tools and instructions are included, along with interactive exercises and discussion).
3. From the Zen Mountain to the Couch “Every day is a good day.” Ummon
Every day is a good day, but it can be hard to experience that. In the midst of our lives, hungry, thirsty and often weary, there comes a moment when we stop and wonder, “Is this all there is? Is there another way to live my life that will bring the joy and contentment that eludes me?” More than ever now, it is useful to look beyond our usual ways of living.
As we learn and apply the ancient practice and principles of Zen to our lives, our sense of loneliness and insecurity fade away. We find ways of feeding our hungry hearts, quieting our turbulent minds and discovering balance, clarity and resilience. These simple teachings and practice not only restore strength and enthusiasm, but bring value and hope to all we interact with. They allow us to connect with what is truly essential and have a direct taste of what is possible in life.
This program integrates the practice of Zen with everyday life.
Some topics covered include:
- Basic Principles of Zen practice
- Instruction in Zen meditation
- Mindfulness in Everyday Life
- The Power of Silence
- Developing a grateful mind
