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! I'll teach upcoming daylongs on February 14 on Working with Judgments at the East Bay Meditation Center in Oakland (with Shahara Godfrey), and Cultivating Wise Speech: Becoming More Skillful in Your Speech Practice on February 15 at Spirit Rock. I'm also looking forward to co-teaching, for the third time, the March Monthlong Retreat, February 28-March 28. In the next months, I'll be particularly teaching on Lovingkindness Practice (April 20-21, at Spirit Rock, with Heather Sundberg); on Transforming the Judgmental Mind (at Esalen, May 17-22; at Cloud Mountain north of Portland, Oregon, with Heather Sundberg, July 31-August 6; in Albuquerque, August 21-23; and at Spirit Rock September 14-20, with Heather Sundberg); and on Mindful Communication and Wise Speech, with Oren Sofer (July 2-8, in Berkeley, a non-residential retreat; and August 25-30, at Vallecitos, near Taos, New Mexico). I also look forward to teaching, for the first time at Spirit Rock, with Teja Bell and Susie Harringon, a 6-day retreat on From the Breath to Spacious Awareness, combining concentration practice; insight practice related to the three characteristics of impermanence, suffering, and not-self; and open awareness, inspired by the Thai Forest tradition and other Buddhist traditions. Details are on the "Schedule" page.
