Ken’s recent publication The Religion of Tomorrow explores A Vision for the Future of the Great Traditions—More Inclusive, More Comprehensive, More Complete. A single purpose lies at the heart of all the great religious traditions: awakening to the astonishing reality of the true nature of ourselves and the universe.
At the same time, this core insight has become obscured and communities have developed in the last five decades offering alternatives, however, they too face their own blocks. In this live dialogue, Ken Wilber and Doshin Roshi explore the Transformational Communities of Tomorrow.
Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today. He describes Doshin as one of the leading spiritual teachers of our time. Both emphasise the importance of state and stage development as part of spiritual awakening – growing up and waking up.
Join us in this groundbreaking dialogue between them, as together they honour the role spiritual, holistic and eco communities have played in the transformation of the world up until now, the challenges of our time and the wisest ways to respond.
If you haven’t already heard of him, Ken Wilber is often referred to as “the Einstein of consciousness”. Ken is the originator of the first truly comprehensive or integrative philosophy, aptly named Integral Theory—”one of the first believable world philosophies,” as Ken himself puts it. Incorporating cultural studies, anthropology, systems theory, developmental psychology, biology, and spirituality, it has been applied in fields as diverse as sustainability, psychotherapy, spirituality, education, business, medicine, politics, sports, and art.
Doshin Nelson Roshi, Head Abbot, Integral Zen, started studying Zen in the late 1960’s but without the guidance of a good teacher he was confused and discouraged by the teachings. In earnest, he began studying other meditative practices and martial arts which were difficult but less obscure. It wasn’t until he met JunPo Kando Denis Kelly Roshi that the disciplined practice and eloquent simplicity of Zen suddenly took root and began to penetrate the dense clouds of his stubborn conditioned mind, revealing the ordinary openness of vast empty sky. Doshin is a poet, troublemaker and teacher – a Zen Master of no rank. He has been fully trained and is adequately skilled in this incredibly transformative practice.
If you wish to directly experience the profound silence and stillness of a Zen container, this live broadcast takes place the evening before a week-long retreat ‘sesshin’ hosted at the Findhorn Foundation.
This retreat will integrate the practical application of leading psychological tools with the tradition and structure of a Zen lineage. This process is designed to reveal subtle insights and will be held by Integral Zen Master Doshin Roshi.
This retreat is open to anyone with a willingness to commit to the Integral Zen request to be ‘open, honest and vulnerable’. Please click here for more details.
