Soulmaking dharma with Catherine McGee

12 September 2020 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

What is a Soulmaking Dharma?

Our Buddhist practice reveals to us that perception is empty and malleable and that we inevitably participate in making our world through the ways we sense and see. Understanding this, the soulmaking practitioner learns to open and tune their heart, body, imagination, desire and intellect to form an instrument for soulful perception: sensing and seeing self, others and world in ways that bring more beauty and meaningfulness, and that restore, open and expand senses of sacredness.

Here, the depths and subtleties of meditative practice, the particularities of the individual and their personal journeys, and the gifts, complexities and sufferings of our time can all find a place in a responsive, intelligent, and soulful Dharma.

Rooted in the Buddha’s teaching of emptiness, ethics and meditative training, Soulmaking Dharma teachings rest upon practices of samatha, metta,emptiness, and the emotional/energy body. The Soulmaking teachings are laid out in several hundred hours of Dharma talks by Rob Burbea and Catherine McGee. An online Foundations course can be found at

Entry criteria:
For experienced practitioners who have an open mind, a desire for knowing more beauty and sacredness and a practice that is well rooted in their body awareness.
