What does it mean to be responsible? Ultimately, completely, and radically responsible? Does one need to have a radically responsible life in order to have a radically meaningful life? These are the questions I explored with Dharma teacher Fleet Maull Roshi, whose new book “Radical Responsibility” is launching May 14th, 2019.

Wake Up, Grow Up, & Show Up – A Meditation Day Retreat w/ Miles Kessler
In this retreat you will work on three aspects of Dharma practice: awakening to deeper meditative states, transforming temporary states into permanent traits, and how to have an impact in the world as a student of the Dharma. This daylong retreat will be a combination of sitting practice, dyadic inquiry, the “Big Mind” process, and some Aikido-based embodiment practice.

What does it mean to “embody conflict resolution”? In the below “Darma Bite” I continue the series of Dharma Discussions with Integral Facilitator & Zen Sensei Diane Musho Hamilton. In this excerpt from our discussion, we talk about conflict resolution in the field of mediation as compared to Aikido, and how they are in essence the same thing. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this short excerpt on “Embodying Conflict Resolution”.
What is your relationship to conflict? Is it something you prefer to avoid? Or do you like to lean into a good fight? Recently, Diane Musho Hamilton and I held our 3rd Community Call in our “Dharma & The Evolution Of Conflict” 3-part series. In this call, together with the global sangha, Diane & I dove into this very topic as we explored “Embracing Conflict As Path.”
Welcome to meditation Monday! Modern science has proven that mindfulness and meditation bring countless benefits to your life. These include greater emotional & psychological well-being, physical health, mental performance, and even greater functionality in relationships. But way back in the beginning, when the Buddha first taught meditation in the Satipatthana Sutta, he laid out 7 benefits of meditation. In the text and video below the Ven. Sayadaw Vivekananda shares The Classic Benefits Of Mindfulness.
Here at the beginning of 2019, I am starting a new blog series called “Meditation Monday.” Each Monday I will be posting “Dharma Bites”… short bite-sized teachings, from myself and other teachers. These posts will be short teachings about mindfulness and meditation that you can easily to implement into your daily practice. I am starting this new endeavor with a video series from my own meditation teacher, the Ven. Sayadaw Vivekananda. Here is his teaching on What On Mindfulness?
