      November Teachings: The Journey to Self Discovery

      The Journey to Self-Discovery: Unlocking Our Fullest Potential Friday’s topic: Patterns and communication Saturday’s topic: Unconscious aspects of the psyche and how they get us in trouble How do your unconscious patterns create suffering for yourself and those around you?  It’s by questioning our views that we set ourselves on the path to spiritual awakening, a.k.a ‘the great healing’. The results? We learn to dwell more and more in spaciousness, clarity, and bliss. In these two evening lectures, meditation master Doug Duncan will offer practical teachings, advice, and tools to bring us to greater questioning and richer states of mind. Self-Discovery: Our Patterns and Communication When we explore how and when we communicate, or don’t, we also take a deeper dive into self-discovery. In turn, if we’re to truly communicate with and honor ‘other,’ we need to courageously uncover the delightful and challenging mystery of our own unconscious patterns and behavior.  Although a hermit at heart, Doug Sensei walks his talk as a proponent of a fuller awakening through community and working together. He lives with his teaching partner Catherine Pawasarat and their students in conscious community, at Clear Sky Center in BC.  Friday’s topic: Patterns and communication Saturday’s topic: Unconscious aspects of the psyche and how they get us in trouble  -------------------------------------------------------------- Is this for you?
