Ram Dass got his start in Eastern Spirituality with Chogyam Trumgpa Rinpoche in Buddhism, which is worship of the formless. The essential doctrine of buddhism is sunnyata or “emptiness” and so the practices are about transcending form.

He eventually made his way to India and fell in love with his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, also known as Maharajji who Ram Dass experienced as the divinity in the form of a living human. Ram Dass continues to teach across the spectrum of form and formless, inviting buddhist teachers like Sharon Salzberg and Jack Kornfield to teach at his retreats alongside Bhakti Kirtan leaders such as Krishna Das.

How does one navigate the span between form and the formless, and is there a paradox in being able to navigate a spirituality that encompasses both?

Ram Dass has spent a lifetime making the deep wisdom of Eastern Spirituality accessible to those in the west, and this workshop focuses on specific teachings and techniques Ram Dass has learned with regards to understanding form and the formless. From specific meditation techniques, kirtan singing and studying scriptural works, Ram Dass has explored the depths of Eastern thought from Buddhism to Hinduism to bring back these teachings.

This is a free 2 hour workshop as part of a series to be held every fourth Sunday evening (once a month). This workshop will be led by Miko Matsumura RYT-200, Ram Dass Ambassador for SF and the South Bay and recent attendee of the Ram Dass week long retreat on Maui.
