Double Star Dance
"Double Star Dance" © Ruth Gendler www.ruthgendler.com

Donald Rothberg is a leading teacher and writer on meditation, the intersection of psychology and spirituality, and socially engaged spiritual practice. He has taught and practiced Buddhist meditation for over 35 years, and his teaching and trainings have helped to pioneer new ways of connecting inner and outer transformation.  He is a member of the Teacher's Council at Spirit Rock Center and the author of The Engaged Spiritual Life: A Buddhist Approach to Transforming Ourselves and the World.

News! I've returned from my six-month sabbatical, and wrote about half of my book, "Transforming the Judgmental Mind."

Upcoming are residential retreats at Cloud Mountain north of Portland  (New Year's) and at Spirit Rock (Metta Retreat), followed by a non-residential three-day retreat with Anna Douglas on The Three Ways of Seeing That Bring Liberation (exploring impermanence, dukkha or reactivity, and anatta or the nature of self and not-self). Further, I'll be teaching a number of daylongs late January through April, on

--The “Thinning” of the Self: Exploring and Practicing Anattā (“Not-Self”): January 28, February 18.

--Cultivating Wise Speech: Becoming More Skillful in Your Speech Practice, February 19,

--Dharma Practice and Kingian Nonviolence (with Kazu Haga), April 8,

--Metta (Lovingkindness), April 17-18, and

--Working with Judgments, April 30 (a retreat also on this theme, May 29 to June 4).

Details for the events are on the "Schedule" page.
