Event Description

A colloquium in Utrecht with Buddhist teacher David Brazier.

Topics that can be dealt with are, among others:
the meaning of the teacher-disciple relationship, the early and later traditions of Buddhism, the difference between being a disciple and being a student, the humanity of teachers, the importance of sangha, the balance between walking the path alone and depending upon the support and guidance of the Buddhas, the similarity and difference between spiritual guidance and therapy, the practice of discipleship in the contemporary world, vows, commitment and liberation.

We will survey these questions together with David Brazier, author of several books as ‘Zentherapy’, ‘The feeling Buddha’ and ‘Love and its disappointment’.

We will do zazen together, kinhin and have dialogues and mutual inquiries to clarify these issues.

Our weekend and workshops are open for everyone with some experience in (Zen)meditation. In the weekend we will communicate in English.

155 euro.

J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…

At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
