This 2-day program will consider three questions about the nature of awakening and contrast various techniques culled from the history of liberation-oriented practice.

The Questions:

1. Do the 3 Vehicles of Buddhism lead to essentially similar experiences?

2. How do these experiences relate to those described in the mystical traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism? 

3. How feasible are these deep awakening experiences for a non-monastic/householder practitioners?

This weekend is suitable for practitioners of all levels.

Because of the unfolding nature of this course, Shinzen would prefer students attend both days.
