Event Details

The Buddhist Teachings and Issues of Cultural Spiritual Bypassing

with Sebene Selassie and Brian Lesage

Saturday July 7, 2018 | 10am – 5:00pm

Spiritual bypassing is described by John Welwood as using spiritual practice to avoid addressing psychological wounds and unresolved personal issues. This is usually addressed only on the individual level, yet a spiritual practice can be used to avoid or “bypass” unresolved cultural issues as well, which we are calling cultural spiritual bypassing. In this daylong we will explore some commonly bypassed issues such as racism, social justice, and identity politics.

We will be exploring what it means to be a cultural being among other cultural beings, including looking at how cultural spiritual bypassing manifests both collectively and individually, particularly within spiritual communities. This exploration will be situated in the context of how the Buddha of early Buddhism addressed cultural forms of oppression in teachings on ethics, view, intention, and the five aggregates.

This daylong will include lecture, images, reflection, discussion and meditation practice. All are welcome and encouraged to attend the Friday evening program which will introduce this exploration.
