Opening to the Joy of Interconnection

With Zohar Lavie recorded on July 4, 2021.

A deeply conditioned habit of the human mind is to experience ourselves as independent and distinct from others and the world that we share. At the heart of Dharma teachings is the invitation to question, inquire into and transform this conditioning of separation, opening us to the joy and possibility of mutuality and interconnectedness. During this session we will explore ways of relating to our experience that support this transformation, and lead us to further wellbeing personally, communally and globally.

    This week’s theme is: Bringing the Practice to Life.

We will open to taste how this enlivens and rejuvenates our practice, and how it can nurture wellbeing for others and ourselves.

    Getting Real with Spiritual Bypass

    Spiritual bypassing is a superficial way of glossing over problems in a way that might make us feel better in the short term, but ultimately solves nothing and just leaves the problem to linger on. This session is an opportunity to begin to understand the concept of Spiritual Bypass (as coined by John Welwood in his book “Toward a Psychology of Awakening”) and how to practice with it.
