Double Star Dance
"Double Star Dance" © Ruth Gendler www.ruthgendler.com

Donald Rothberg is a leading teacher and writer on meditation and socially engaged spiritual practice. He has taught and practiced Buddhist meditation for over 30 years, and his engaged work has pioneered new ways of connecting inner and outer transformation.  He is a member of the Teacher's Council at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and author of The Engaged Spiritual Life: Buddhist Approach to Transforming Ourselves and the World.

News! This fall, I'll be teaching retreats on "Transforming the Judgmental Mind" (I'm writing a book on the topic) in Santa Cruz, September 19-21 (a non-residential retreat), and at Southern Dharma in North Carolina, November 8-14. I'll be part of a gathering devoted to celebrating Gandhi's work and life, in Petaluma on September 28. I'll be teaching, along with Sally Armstrong, a four-month series of daylongs on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, starting September 27; Sally will teach on the first and fourth foundations and I'll teach on the second and third. This is a wonderful to deepen and clarify one's meditation practice. I'm also teaching twice, on October 4 in Reno and October 18 in Redwood City, a daylong on “The Burmese and Thai Roots of Western Insight Meditation,” complete with a lot of PowerPoint slides! I'm also looking forward to several Spirit Rock retreats, a wonderful Winter Solstice Retreat taught with Heather Sundberg and John Travis, December 16-23; a Metta Retreat taught with Konda Mason, Heather Sundberg, and Larry Yang, January 12-19, 2015; and the March Monthlong Retreat, February 28-March 28. Details are on the "Schedule" page.
