The Inner Science, Experiential Investigation, and Analysis of Consciousness

Richard Baker Roshi

 

Saturday June 26

9:00 PDT | 12:00 EDT | 17:00 BST  |  18:00 CEST

2-hour session

To practice Zen means to observe the fact and process of knowing. Consciousness is the most visible face of our mutualized knowing, a knowing through others and within the proximal spectrum of phenomenality. To closely and dispassionately observe the activity and functioning of consciousness, it is necessary, additionally, to actualize a transformational ‘awareness-observing-consciousness.’ This is a shift in kind: a shift from a self- referencing, comparative consciousness to a non-self- referencing, non-comparative awareness. This ‘non-self-referencing, non-comparative awareness,’ allows us to attentionally notice and study, to deconstruct and reconstruct, the perceptual and organizational processes of consciousness. This process of deconstructing and reconstructing consciousness is called the Teaching of the Five Skandhas. The five attentional categories for the analysis of consciousness are: ‘Form,’ ‘Non-Graspable-Feelings,’ ‘Perception,’ ‘Associative Consciousness,’ and ‘Consciousness.’

Zentatsu Richard Baker is the Founder and Head Teacher of the Dharma Sangha Centers in the United States and Europe. In the United States he lives at the Crestone Mountain Zen Center in Colorado; and in Germany, at the Zen Buddhist Center Schwarzwald in the Black Forest. He has been teaching Zen-Buddhism for 45 years. 

Baker Roshi is the Dharma Successor of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (author of the book Zen Mind Beginner’s Mind).  In 1966, with and for Suzuki Roshi, he co-founded the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center in California.

Baker Roshi subsequently founded the Green Gulch Zen Practice Community and Farm in Marin County, California in 1972. During the ’70s, he pioneered a number of businesses related to Zen practice. In 1983, he founded the Dharma Sangha.

General Information 

All sessions will last for approximately 2 hours, and will be held over zoom.us. The session structure may vary from speaker to speaker, but in general participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and in some cases there will be breakaway discussion groups.

Each session will be hosted by a member of the Pari Center Team, to ensure that the call is running smoothly and assist anyone experiencing technical problems.

During the presentations, we ask participants to turn off their microphone to ensure better quality audio. For this reason, the host may mute a participant’s audio. This is not to silence a participant’s voice, but to ensure an overall good audio quality. If a participant would like to ask a question or make a contribution to the discussion, they can use the ‘raise your hand’ tool in the chat, and then are welcome to turn on their microphone.

We invite all participants to turn on their video camera, as we believe that seeing everyone creates an inclusive educational environment. However, if any participant is uncomfortable, they are free to turn off the camera.

All sessions will be recorded. The recordings will not include the possible breakout-room discussions, but only the speaker’s presentation, follow-up discussions and Q&A. If a participant does not feel comfortable being recorded, we invite that participant to turn off their video and audio throughout the session. These recordings are available to anyone who has purchased a ticket for an attended session, or for a session they have paid for but were unable to attend.
