The Future of Buddhism: Big Mind, Big Heart and the Evolution of the Dharma
Genpo Roshi is changing the face of Zen—now and for the future. He is part traditional Zen Master and part modern spiritual innovator and his original teaching method, Big Mind, Big Heart, enables even the novice student to have a direct and potentially life changing experience of their own true nature. In this teleseminar, Genpo Roshi will share with us the essence of Big Mind, Big Heart and will speak about why it is vital that we find new ways of understanding, teaching and practicing the timeless spiritual paths of the East. Experience for yourself how his unique combination of tools and methods successfully weds Western psychology and science with the ancient wisdom traditions.
About Genpo Roshi
Dennis Genpo Merzel Roshi (born 1944) founded the Kanzeon International Sangha in 1982. He has been Abbot of Big Mind Western Zen Center, (formerly known as Kanzeon Zen Center) in Salt Lake City, Utah, since 1987. He received dharma transmission in both the Soto Zen and Rinzai Zen traditions. He is the second Dharma Successor of Taizan Maezumi Roshi, with whom he began his Zen practice in 1972. In 1996 he received inka (final seal of approval as Zen Master) from Roshi Bernard Glassman, Glassman being Maezumi's first Dharma Successor. In 1999 he originated the Big Mind process, which has become central to his teaching since then. Roshi’s publications include: The Eye Never Sleeps, Beyond Sanity and Madness, 24/7 Dharma, and The Path of The Human Being. His latest book, Big Mind/Big Heart: Finding Your Way, was published in the Fall of 2007.
Today's leading spiritual luminaries are converging online for an unprecedented exploration.
Their question: How does the spiritual path need to evolve to serve the evolutionary needs of humanity in the 21st century?
The great wisdom traditions emerged at a time when life was radically different than it is today. The world has changed immeasurably in the past two thousand years. And human beings have changed along with it.
We are a new humanity facing a new set of challenges—and a new set of opportunities.
How can we liberate the spiritual impulse from the outmoded structures of the past, so it can guide us in creating the future?
We’d like to invite you to join us in our quest for answers.
Each event will explore this question from a unique angle. We'll look at how the discovery of evolution is giving birth to an entirely new spiritual impulse-- as well as a new framework for engaging in spiritual practice. We'll ask how the great traditions of the past can be brought up to date and kept relevant to a rapidly changing, increasingly complex world. We'll explore some of the new, more integral forms that spirituality is taking, from the emergence of new paths of self-inquiry to the birth of collective enlightenment. And we'll think together about the vital role each of us can now play in creating a more enlightened future for humanity.
