From mindfulness, where next?
A profound journey of self-discovery, self-development and growth, through
10 experiential and life transforming workshops integrating mindfulness,
psychology, deep meditation and self-development techniques.
We enter on a rare pilgrimage. The Ox herder also known as the Ten Bulls of Zen are something unique in the history of human
consciousness. Truth has been expressed in many ways, and it has always been found that it remains unexpressed whatsoever you do. Howsoever you express it, it eludes, it is elusive. It simply escapes description. The words that you use for it cannot contain it. And the moment you have expressed, immediately you feel frustrated as if the essential has been left behind and only the nonessential has been expressed. The Ten Bulls of Zen have tried in a single effort to express the inexpressible. So first, something about the history of these ten bulls.
No one really knows the origin of the Ox herder. The Ox herder has been used over the past 1000 years by succeeding generations of Ch'an (Zen & Taoist) masters to assist their students to progress toward self-realization, enlightenment and self-sovereignty.
It is with this intention that we bring to you this unique and exclusive program. This unique self-development program consists of 10 workshops over a period of 10 months, one half-day workshop per month, in which participants are introduced to a series of “steps” to guide them to cultivate deeper insights and contentment towards the realization of their true and essential nature. The Ox herder approach illustrates the stages of one’s progression towards the healing of mind and emotions as well as the subsequent engaging into the world out of wisdom, compassion and ethics. Taking participants through ten stages and states of personal journey and self-discovery, arriving at their centre. Each workshop will focus on enabling participants to understand and directly experience each stage of the process.
