Saturday, Dharma Day: Dharma, in a secular sense, refers to the basic ground underlying the contemplative teachings and practices: the transitory nature of all phenomena, including mental states; the willingness to be intimate with the nature of our ordinary mind, in contrast to the conceptual, illusory, fantasy mind-world assumed to be permanent and real; how to find peace, compassion and wisdom within the heart of change.
This day features two of the most influential and respected teachers, Nobel prize nominee and Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh “Thay” as he is known in Vietnamese, accompanied by nuns and monks of Plum Village and Deer Park monasteries, and Vipassana meditation teacher and founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Jack Kornfield. Both have been instrumental in bringing Buddhism to the West. Their innovative teaching styles have accommodated to a secular western mind so that the western world can benefit from Buddhist psychology's profound understanding of what it means to be a human being.
Sunday, Sangha: In a secular sense Sangha refers to the community of fellow practitioners: here it means all psychotherapists, health professionals, meditators, and those who are doing compassion-based work who want to deepen and refine their understanding of health, healing and what's possible for the human heart.
This day opens out to a community of speakers representing different parts of the country and different facets of clinical practice. Each speaker brings their area of expertise to the wider community of the conference.
With this as our direction for the day the presenters further the process of creating ways of exploring and experiencing the interconnected web of ourselves, living with others, with all life, in-the-world. Such an experience of interbeing is a natural expression of mindful mind, compassion for all beings and the wisdom of unbiased awareness.
