Transformation Teaching presents Doshin Nelson Roshi, a Zen Master, who will give a dharma talk on Integral Zen.
Genuine spiritual awakening is coming to a stable recognition of the pure consciousness within us, deeper than thought, emotion, feeling, or life story. It is radically non-theistic, viewless, genderless, both infinitely greater than the individual and inexorably bound to his or her breath, ego, and body.
Integral Zen is based on the fact that deep meditative consciousness is fundamentally pure and receptive, while ego is temporary and superficial. And yet we must use our egos — not destroy or transcend them — on our path as awakening human beings. This creates the paradox and confusion at the heart of spiritual practice.
