Karen McAllister says…
Awaken to more! Awaken to so much more! I came to meditation to calm my mind. And yes, I did become more calm. But the practice also brought along with it so much more energy, investigation, joy, concentration, awareness and equanimity into my life. Come and join us. Classes are starting again for the next 3 months with Doug Sensei in North East Kyoto this Saturday at 4pm, Sunday at 10pm and Monday at 7.30pm 4pm Saturday, 10am Sunday, and 7.30pm Monday.See our website for directions.
And from the website itself:
Under the guidance of our teacher Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei, we practice meditation in both Eastern and Western traditions, focusing chiefly on Tibetan and Theravadin Buddhist practices and the Western mystical teachings. In addition, we balance the inner exploration of meditation and contemplation with the outer exploration of Dharma trips, travel with the teacher to points of wonder and interest around the globe. This balanced approach is aimed at a single goal: working for the liberation and inner peace of all beings through the personal realization of wisdom and compassion in oneself.
