A Benefit for the Spirit Rock Scholarship Fund and Open Gate Sangha

The spiritual life involves a dialectical interaction between our relative selves and our true nature. The embodied human ego seeks its home ground and its liberating release, while our true nature seeks its conscious embodiment in the world of time and space. These two spiritual instincts are the enlightenment impulse experienced from the relative and absolute dimensions of our being, which move in cyclic relationship to one another within the human psyche. In this day together, we will explore the nature of the enlightenment impulse, which seeks to consciously embody both the transcendent and immanent impulses of our true nature.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an at home audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the recording.
