Explore a polyspiritual approach to your infinite self.
In the past some spiritual teachings recommended “sticking with one path and digging a single deep hole”, rather than “digging many shallow holes”. Times have changed. More people identify as polyspiritual and “spiritual but not religious” than at any previous time in history. Is this you?
In this 3-hour Master Workshop we’ll be using transformational practices from Sufism, Judaism, Christianity, Kundalini Yoga, Hinduism and Buddhism to experience and weave together the three necessary keys to developing and optimising a poly-spiritual approach to your path. An understanding and on-going maturation of these three key facets on the jewel of contemplative traditions is essential to successfully integrate and unify the best of what diverse spiritual traditions have to offer.
Join us for an exploration of different mystical traditions as we dust away some of the mystery and journey into self-mastery.

About the Teacher
“I am polyspiritual. I started my meditation training in 1984, at the age of 24, at a Korean Chogye Zen temple (with Samu Sunim) in Toronto. Further in-person training, study and practice includes Kundalini Yoga (Yogi Bhajan), Vipassana (Goenka), the Mahasi Sayadaw Burmese Noting method (Philip Starkman), the Jhanas (Leigh Brasington), Rinzai Zen (Sasaki Roshi), Hakomi (Dyrian Benz) and Native American Inipi Ceremonies (Vern Harper, others).
I have taken inspiration and wisdom from the teachings of Patajali’s Yoga Sutras, the Sikhs (Guru Nanak and others), Sufis (Rumi and Kabir), Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhists (Tenzin Gyatso the 14th Dalai Lama, Kyabje Ribur Rinpoche), the Christian contemplatives (Father Thomas Keating, St John of the Cross, St Theresa of Avila), Ken Wilber and Integral Studies, Adyashanti, Culadasa, Loch Kelly’s Direct Pointing, Gary Weber’s Self Enquiry, Positive Psychology, Transactional Analysis, Voice Dialogue, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, and the ongoing intersection of mindfulness and neuroscience. I have participated in several neuroscience studies including as an adept meditator in the 2012 Harvard Mindfulness study designed by David Vago and Shinzen Young as part of the Mapping the Meditative Mind project.
Since the year 2000 I’ve trained intensively in an evolving secular mindfulness system developed by Shinzen Young.”
