  • December 18
    Mindfulness Touch: Experiencing Connection, Fairfax, CA.
    10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Practicing touch we will experience big mind or boundless non-duality —connection between two people. Most touch, as most moments of consciousness, embodies directives and judgments, expressed as, “Go over there.” or “Come over here;” “Calm down,” “Straighten up,” or “Love me.”

    We will learn to touch with mindfulness—receiving sensation rather than dispensing directives—and connect with what is. In the course of this we will discover experientially how helping, fixing, diagnosing, correcting (though at times useful and important) all get in the way of true connection through touch.

    In the end we will touch what is Divine in one another. (In case you have concerns –this is a course about conscious touch: participants remain fully dressed and are invited to voice any concerns about inappropriate touching or touch that is disconcerting.)

    With an exception or two, this course most often provides participants with an awesome experience. Though not necessarily a popular course (as is cooking), the actual experience is profound: important for relationship, connection, consciousness studies, meditation, hands-on healing. Cost: $40. Email Edward to register.

  • December 31
    Dharma Talk at San Francisco Zen Center, 10:00 a.m.
