I’ve been looking into Genpo Roshi’s Big Mind practice for a few days now, and it seems like a really great addition to spiritual practices.
The Big Mind process will give you the tools on how to surrender the personal Ego to Big Mind. It offers perspective on how we ordinarily function and restrict ourselves. You will discover the True Master within and learn how to effortlessly tap into innate wisdom and compassion.
It is a very simple process that allows one to experience what Zen is very easily and swiftly. The ego, which normally guards and protects the self from experiencing life directly, without barriers, is dropped. Participants learn to sit with non-seeking, non-thinking mind, rather than grasping after the truth.

Have any of you taken part in Big Mind or learned of it before?

Stuart Davis’ recent explorations of Big Mind have been amusing, including his dialogue with “The Skeptic.” I’d certainly like to learn more about Big Mind, perhaps through Genpo Roshi’s DVD (that can be a hint for those of you looking to get me something for Christmas or my upcoming birthday, because there’s no better gift than the gift of enlightenment), especially because it seems to be one of the clearest examples of Integral in practice right now and has been getting some really solid results, if the various accounts I’ve heard have been true.
