Public Talks in California

Join Doug and Catherine Sensei for an evening of teachings in Pasedena, California. They will be speaking on the following two topics:

  • Extreme Spiritual Sports – Awakening in this Lifetime

Join Doug and Catherine Sensei for two free public talks in Pasadena California on February 13th, 7pm.  They will be speaking on the following two topics:

Money, Sex and Power: Making Them Conscious

Money, sex and power.  Easy to say, difficult to live with consciously. Whether we like it or not, these energies are with us and affect us every single day. Even if we choose to minimize their presence in our lives, they continue to operate as active forces in the world all around us. How can we integrate them so that they’re showing up healthfully for us and our relationships making sure we don’t repress the parts we don’t feel comfortable with? Find out at this invigorating talk.

Extreme Spiritual Sports: Awakening in this Lifetime

Awakening, enlightenment, satori, Christ consciousness, Buddha realization – all easy to say, but how about to experience?  In this talk, Doug and Catherine Sensei describe the precious opportunity we have in this lifetime to come to our human birthright – awakening.  They articulate the path and work that is required to get you there, and why its so worthwhile.
