Seminar: Individuation through Contemplation, Meditation, and Practice
September, 10, 2019 – October 8, 2019
WILLIAM KOTSCH, Ph.D., Jungian analyst
Buddhism describes two paths or vehicles to end human unhappiness, Sutrayana and Vajrayana, where sutra is called the causal path, and tantra, the resultant path. Similarly, Jung described a retrospective and a prospective approach integral to the process of Individuation. This seminar will examine a text, The Samadhi Raja Sutra, and a commentary by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, that powerfully link Sutrayana and Vajrayana in a way that is both comprehensive and practical. Rinpoche, the author of our commentary and a realized master of Tibetan Buddhism’s Kagyu lineage, served as the primary tutor of the 17th Karmapa.
This seminar is aimed toward individuals who have a basic understanding of the Reality of Psyche, some form of mediation practice, and the desire to integrate and expand both their understanding and practice of the process of individuation.
Five 2-hour sessions, Tuesdays, 6 pm to 8 pm, in Santa Fe.
Enrollment limited to eight participants.
Begins September 10th, through October 8th.
$40.00 for entire series (to be donated to the Vaja Vidya Retreat Center).
For 10 CEUs, add $20 surcharge.
