I recently attended a powerful Zen Meditation (Sesshin) in NYC with Father Michael Holleran. He is an extremely interesting man. A Catholic priest Sensai (Zen Teacher) and former Carthusian monk.
To learn more about him, follow this link: hhttp://www.michaelkholleran.org/.
As part of the ritual of the Zen practice, the following powerful vows and verse were recited. Their urgent messages still linger in my mind.
The Boddhisatva Vows
Creations are numberless, I vow to free them.
Delusions are inexhaustible, I vow to transform them.
Reality is boundless, I vow to perceive it.
The awakened way is unsurpassable, I vow to embody it.

Let me respectfully remind you Life and death are of supreme importance
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost Each of us should strive to awaken
DO NOT SQUANDER YOUR LIFE

The Power of Practice Classical Yoga Training for Teachers & Practitioners
June 24-29, 2017
While many yoga instructors teach asana (postures), very few are teaching a comprehensive vision of the complete eight-limbed path of classical (raja) yoga. Many students are longing to go beyond asana and dive deeper into meditation and pranayama. Yoga teachers today have the capacity to provide the spiritual guidance for a global shift in consciousness. You can change the world and help others develop kindness, compassion, and joyfulness, the encoded teachings of the Yoga Sutra.
In this yoga training for teachers and passionate practitioners, yoga pioneer Beryl Bender Birch leads you daily in her Present Power yoga practice, and in meditation and pranayama practices as well. Strengthen not only your body and mind, but also your ability to share this methodology with your students and friends. Through discussion and meditation uncover new realms of classical yoga's inner limbs hidden in the Yoga Sutra. Birch's teaching helps you catapult your own practice beyond asana to the outer edges of your spiritual potential, moving you from self-centeredness and simple survival to the joyful and enlightened yoga experience of connectedness with all things.
