    July 10 - August 28


    This seven-week Summer Intensive, rooted in the Mindful Living Path of the FCM Study and Practice Guide, will focus on our tradition’s foundational practices for living a life of happiness, solidity and well-being.


    Our happiness is directly related to our ability to be present to life, to see clearly what is occurring in our surroundings as well as what is occurring in our own minds. This Intensive will introduce the core abilities and practices for living a life of mindfulness and awareness: establishing a consistent mindfulness meditation practice to develop stability of mind, mindfulness of emotions and thoughts, and bringing mindfulness to the activities of our daily life.  It will include specific practices from the Plum Village tradition including conscious breathing, deep relaxation, walking meditation, mindful eating, deep listening/loving speech and lovingkindness meditation. Through Dharma talks, written instructions, recorded guided meditations and other supports, participants will develop direct experience and competence in these life-changing practices and will learn to incorporate them into their lives.   


    Elements of this Intensive will include Dharma talks by senior students, offered to participants by phone conference call. In addition, participants will be assigned to bi-weekly small group video interview forums with senior students to receive individualized guidance.


    The commitments for this Intensive are listed below. Before registering for the Intensive please read the commitments and reflect carefully on whether you will be able to keep them.

    July 10 –August 28


    This seven-week summer Mindful Living Path Intensive will provide an opportunity for FCM members who participated in the Winter/Spring Intensive on the Four Immeasurables to deepen their understanding and practice of these four “divine abodes.” The Winter/Spring Intensive provided an introduction to the cultivation of a warm, accepting, kind and compassionate heart through the study and practice of Loving-kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy and Equanimity. We began to uncover the natural qualities of our own heart/mind and learn to live with an openness that feels connection and friendliness towards all beings, rejoices in their happiness, and desires to alleviate their suffering. We practiced meditations to cultivate these qualities in our mind, and through consistent mindfulness we began to bring them into our daily life of relationship, work and interaction with others.


    In this self-development Intensive, participants will build on their previous practice of the Four Immeasurables by choosing 2-3 areas to focus on during the Intensive, such as:

    ·         Developing a more loving accepting relationship with oneself by cultivating positive mind states and ceasing the cultivation of negative mind states

    ·         Developing a more loving accepting relationship with one or more people we find “difficult”

    ·         Deepening our sense of empathy, understanding and connection with others

    ·         Strengthening our capacity to be present to suffering

    ·         Cultivating a joyful mind that rejoices in the successes and well-being of both ourself and others


    Participants in this Intensive will be provided with supports for their practice that include Dharma talks by a senior student, offered to participants by phone conference call. Participants will be assigned to bi-weekly small group video interview forums with a senior student to receive individualized guidance. In addition, Fred will offer a Forum in Tampa to answer questions and interact with participants; the Forum will be live-streamed so that those in other locations can participate.


    Please note that this Intensive is open only to FCM members who either participated in the Winter/Spring 2017 Four Immeasurables Intensive or with Diane’s permission.


    The commitments for this Intensive are listed below. Before registering for the Intensive please read the commitments and reflect carefully on whether you will be able to keep them.


    Commitments for each Intensive participant:

    ·         The commitment to practice a minimum of 30 minutes of daily formal meditative practice and/or other practices related to this Intensive.

    ·         The commitment to participate in your assigned bi-weekly small group video interview forums.

    ·         The commitment to be present for the phone Dharma Talks.

    ·         The commitment to be present for the Forum with Fred, in person or by livestream.

    ·         The commitment to read Dharma texts assigned for the Intensive.

    ·         The commitment to attend all the practice periods of your sangha during the Intensive, as possible.

    The Summer 2017 Dharma Path Intensive will continue our focus on the text, “The Bodhicaryavatara” by Shantideva. Participants in the Intensive will use the first six chapters of the text as a manual for the basic practices of the bodhisattva and as the model/guide to our participation in the ageless stream of beings that have consciously made the bodhisattva path their guidepost to living an enlightened life of purpose and meaning.


    In this self-development Intensive, we will study and practice in a targeted manner with the text’s stanzas that we find personally meaningful and applicable and have studied over these past months. Participants will have the opportunity to select the specific stanzas upon which they wish to concentrate. Supportive activities for this Intensive will include Dharma Talks by Fred, continued study of the text and commentaries, and small group meetings with Fred by zoom.


    Please note that this Intensive is open only to FCM members who either participated in the Winter/Spring 2017 Dharma Path Intensive or with Fred’s permission.
