In this talk Doug and Catherine discuss Awakening Through Action, traditionally known as the practice of karma yoga. Karma yoga is a practice that transforms even mundane activities into paths of spiritual growth and awakening. In this practice every moment is turned into an active meditation. It is an ideal spiritual path for action-oriented modern people, that takes us beyond our selves. In the talk you will hear them make reference to ‘Buddhas in Action’. This is their 2-week intensive program on karma yoga that they are currently offering every second year.
