Koans, stories of encounters between Zen practitioners, are myth-like in their resonance across time and culture. Their concise form is rich with archetypal imagery, which, in some stories, provides perspective on the process of individuation.
Participants will have a chance to thoughtfully and experientially have their own encounters with the koans, and to learn from the responses of others present. We will also reflect personally, in writing, and interactively with the group, to explore the opportunities that arise for each of us to speak genuinely, or to hide ourselves. When in your days do you receive the call to be?
1. Apply Zen koans to the process of individuation conceptually and experientially. 2. Bring the wisdom of the group to develop a deeper understanding of the koans applied to individuation. 3. Recognize the call for an intimate, genuine response. 4. Consider the risks of speaking up. Why do we hold back? 5. What is your intimate response for challenges that you meet?
