Service Description

DRAGON PASSAGE This training is suitable for dedicated practitioners who have mastered the Carp Passage but are aware of the limitations that their own Ego poses. Although, as a result, they are still primarily focused only on their self-liberation, they are ready to intensively surrender to the process of deconditioning and reprogramming of the Egoic patterns, purifying Karma at the same time. Through practice, students become more open and receptive, and thus more aware of the limitations that the dualistic mind brings. The schedule consists of two Zazen periods, one Kinhin period and a Mondo that allows only one question to be asked. Mondo's brevity forces the student to practice crystallizing and focusing thoughts, assessing their relevance, and effective verbalization. The practice in this passage is intensified through participation in Sesshins, and frequent meetings with sensei (Dharma Meetings), what contributes to the strengthening of introspection, reflection and contemplation. OPTIONS: Students are also offered (or advised) the following options: "Brush Up Meeting" - refreshing or correcting the basics of Zen technique if the student has fallen back into a conditioned posture or breathing patterns; "Practice Discussion" - discussing organizational aspects of the practice such as increasing or decreasing the intensity, switching to another Passage, adding practice elements (qigong, pranayama), adjusting the practice due to health problems, etc.; "Life Guidance" - a conversation that offers guidance and support regarding personal life obstacles and trials (relevant to karmic cleansing). REQUIREMENTS: Please read the Zendo guidelines to learn about requirements and other instructions Schedule: Tue, Wed / 20:15-21:15 Participants: 4 Teaching tuition: 30 CHF (single class) / 280 CHF (10 classes subscription)
