This six-week seminar will explore historical and mythical stories from the life of the Buddha as a lens for unfolding our own spiritual journeys. We will also draw on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey and the Myth of Inanna as frameworks to illuminate the archetypal stages of the spiritual path. The seminar will weave meditation, dharma talks, interactive dialogue, and practices between sessions to integrate the teachings into daily life.
The seminar is open to everyone, but is limited to 30 people, and a brief application is required. Please note that you are asked to commit to full participation, including attending all sessions, sharing with others, and engaging in between-sessions practices.

Pamela Weiss has been practicing in the Zen and Theravada traditions since 1987. She spent several years in a Zen monastery, co-leads the Community Dharma Leader Program at Spirit Rock, and leads the Wednesday evening sangha for SF Insight.
We want our classes to be accessible to as many sangha members as possible and offer our classes on a sliding scale registration fee basis. For those unable to afford the low end of the sliding scale, some partial scholarships are available. Please call 415-727-6220 prior to the first class if the registration fee is an obstacle to your participation.
