The Mindful Leader

The Buddha was a great leader. This daylong workshop at Spirit Rock will use Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey as a framework for exploring the life of the Buddha and understanding leadership as a path of practice. Our time together will weave talks, guided meditation, reflection, and interactive exercises. You will leave with a clear map forward for your personal leadership journey, and new practices and perspectives to support you. Open to anyone in a formal or informal leadership role.

Taking Refuge in Buddha: Inspiration for Walking the Spiritual Path

This six-week seminar will study the historical and mythical stories from the life of the Buddha as a lens for exploring our own lives and spiritual journeys. We will draw on Joseph Campbell’s map of the “Hero’s Journey” as a framework to illuminate the archetypal stages of the spiritual path. The seminar will weave meditation, talks, interactive dialogue, with between sessions reflection and practices to ground the teachings in daily life.

Dharma Talks


In an old Zen story

A student comes to visit his
dying teacher. The student asks:
"What is the teaching of your entire lifetime?" The teacher replies:

"An Appropriate Response."
