Autumn 2020 Integrative Practice Program
Schedule & Location
Here we go! Together, we will be exploring the tradition of listening, contemplating, and meditating in context, and discovering how it flows with the energy currents of life in modern Western culture.
My aspiration is that you will gain knowledge, experience, and insight into yourself as you explore the Buddhadharma in this vivid practice of clarity.
Along the way, you will be helping me refine instruction materials for other students to learn how to employ integrative practice in their own lives. Participation in the program thus includes consent to use of your comments, feedback, and lessons from practice. Nobody will be identified in any way, nor will confidential exchanges be shared.
Before we get started, here is a peek at what I love about integrative practice:
• It is found across the breadth of the Buddha’s teachings, from the Pali canon to the Mahayana and Vajrayana
• As a technique for integrating Dharma, it is content neutral, and applicable to any teaching, irrespective of Buddhist tradition
• Deceptively simple in appearance, it is a richly rewarding practice able to serve a common yet elusive aim—bringing Dharma into everyday life
• Proven effective, it is also flexible and well suited to modern culture and times
• Deeply personal by nature, it is nevertheless easy to implement
• An early fruit of the practice is empowerment—we learn to hone our Dharma practice from within our individual interests, strengths, and weaknesses
• During a time of rapid-fire spread of the Dharma, social upheaval, and dwindling attention spans, this practice prioritizes depth, stability, and purpose
I'm thrilled to be starting on this adventure together!

DANA OFFERING AT PRAJNA FIRE
The kindness of supporters who offer dana makes it possible for us to make our Dharma work available on a donation-optional basis. In response to their requests, the comparable value of each program we make available is listed as a benchmark for making an offering.
Rather than stating a suggested donation amount or range ourselves, offering codes (see below) leave the choice to offer dana as suitable for your circumstances in your hands, including full scholarship. All codes are available for use as often as you wish for all our offerings.
If you are able to offer the comparable value and beyond, please know that you have our enduring gratitude. All offered funds support our Dharma work and keep our offerings accessible, despite the wealth inequities built into modern society.
We are glad to offer our programs as a mutual practice of generosity, and hope this approach provides both freedom and helpful information for all our supporters.
May there be abundant benefit always, in all ways, for all that lives!
