G.R.A.C.E.: Training in Cultivating Compassion-based Interactions 

Roshi Joan has developed a model of compassion that views compassion as an emergent process fostered by non-compassion elements. The model draws on neuroscience, social psychology, ethics, and contemplative perspectives. This scientifically grounded, weekend intensive training operationalizes this model of compassion. It is for clinicians, professional caregivers, therapists, chaplains, social workers, family caregivers, human rights activists, and others. The training focuses on the intervention called G.R.A.C.E. that enables one to foster specific elements allowing compassion and resilience to emerge in the process of interacting with others.

The Ground of Being: Sit, Walk, Write

In this retreat, we are going to explore writing practice at the edge of the world. We aim to crack open our writing and to see inside out. This retreat offers the opportunity to develop the active mind of writing with the contemplative atmosphere of silence, sitting and walking. This retreat is designed to place us solidly in our own experience, develop a strong writing spine at the same time to open a fresh way of envisioning our approach to writing and seeing. Plan to spend half of each day in silence, to do short meditations and one-foot-after-the-other slow walking in the garden. In addition, we will do a lot of timed writings in class and deep listening -- to yourself and others--in small and large groups.

Compassion is Emptiness, Emptiness is Compassion

The philosophy of emptiness would have us realize that sentient beings are empty: they do not ultimately exist. Yet the Bodhisattva must cultivate compassion for all beings and seek awakening so as to free them all from suffering. Is this a contradiction? Is it possible to have authentic compassion for beings if one knows that they do not truly exist? Drawing on the works of Nagarjuna, Śantideva, Advayavajra and other classical Buddhist sources, this series of talks and contemplative exercises explores the relationship between compassion and wisdom from a nondual perspective.

Touching Earth and Sky

This Practice Period gives us the rare opportunity to drop into the deep questions related to time, life, death, rebirth, nonduality, and no birth no death.

Practice Period (Ango or "peaceful dwelling") is a traditional intensive training period common to many schools of Buddhism. Ango traces its history to the time of Shakyamuni Buddha and the early sangha. Each year, the community would gather together enabling everyone to deepen their practice and polish their understanding through the indispensable teachings of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. During a Practice Period, Upaya residents intensify their daily practice by sitting Zazen more frequently, studying in classes, training in the temple, having private interviews with the teachers, engaging in council practice and weekly Zazenkais, and sitting a Sesshin (6 Full Days of intensive meditation retreat) at the end of Practice Period. Guests will participate daily in Samu (work practice), physical practice (yoga or walking outdoors) and periods of rest.
