Integrating our shadow may be the fastest way to unfold spiritually, and reduce our suffering. By its very nature, shadow work is not fun or pretty. It takes courage and fortitude. Once we decide to change, the shadow’s darkness moves towards greater and greater light. That is both beautiful and exciting.
Want to hear about a powerful tool you can use on your quest for freedom? We believe that the combination of Astrology & Dharma powerfully brings together two ancient wisdom traditions– one Eastern, one Western – to help us speed up our unfoldment. Think, “turbo charge.”
In this Banyen interview, Doug Sensei and Catherine speak about their innovative teaching work, the blending of Eastern and Western traditions, and the integration of the shadow aspects of our psyches for transformation.
We use astrology to better understand our self, our conditioning, our strengths and weaknesses, and potential. We leverage all of that through a dharmic lens, to get over our egocentricity and to be of better service to others and the planet. This inevitably alleviates suffering, our own as well as others, one of the fundamental “goals” of Buddhadharma.
