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.

News! This spring, I'll be teaching several retreats and daylongs on several themes which I've been teaching for a number of years.  I'll be co-teaching a retreat at Spirit Rock April 17-23, with my friend and colleague, David Loy (a wonderful teacher and writer), on "Awakening in Service and Action," deepening our sense of the paths of service and social action understood as forms of spiritual practice. I'll also be teaching a lot on the theme of "Transforming the Judgmental Mind" (I'm writing a book on the topic), including a daylong on May 3 at Spirit Rock, followed by optional follow-up groups, and a 5-day retreat, May 18-23, at Esalen in Big Sur, California. Lastly, I'm very much looking forward to co-teaching "Mindful Communication: A Wise Speech Retreat" (with Oren Sofer), June 15-21 at Spirit Rock. More details are on the "Schedule" page.
