    isc3 day3

    there they sat before us .. one beautiful row of beams of light

    ken wilber .. willow pearson .. brother david .. rabbi zalman .. roger walsh .. diane hamilton.. jim marion .. vidyuddeva .. sally kempton .. sophia diaz .. genpo roshi .. chantal westerman .. saniel bonder .. linda groves .. steve brill

    stuart davis with his guitar standing to ken's right .. singing all i ever wanted was the buddha without buddhism .. all i ever wanted was just jesus christ without the christians .. and all i ever wanted was just peace and love without the pot smoke . and all i ever wanted was just porno flicks without the plot

    and when the panel introduced themselves and linda passed the mike to saniel .. he said thank u my love .. and chantal loved that so much so that when saniel finished talking and passed her the mike .. she said thank u my love .. and on it went .. and that became our mantra for the day .. thank u my love

    beams of light in the panel before me .. beams of light in the seats beside and behind me .. beams of light later in the hotel lobby .. in the restaurants .. in the airport .. at home ..

    and the afterglow shines on .. beams of light everywhere

    one big beam of light .. thank u my loves

    to be continued

    reb using a great analogy for traditions that stay stuck by telling of an old house that he had visited after not being there for decades .. the kitchen had not been upgraded with the usual modern advancements .. it was uncomfortable and inefficient

    hi fairyfaye,

    robin of iNYC gave this excellent report, which nicely complements your own perspective, i think:


    Day 1 was David Deida, who seemed a bit self conscious on stage in
    front of some of the other spiritual teachers. At one point he
    congratulated himself on only saying fuck once, but as a women in the
    audience pointed out, "You said fuck in front of Father Thomas!" So
    Deida definitely reined himself in compared with his usual tart
    repartee style. However, I went home ready to pick up my first David
    Deida book and interested in attending a weekend workshop with him so
    I can experience him full blown.

    I enjoyed the brief introduction to Deida's stages of masculine and
    feminine unfolding and the brief tour of his thinking. We all did one
    very powerful exercise at the end, which involved gazing in pairs and
    speaking from the heart. One partner said "I love you,: from the
    heart and the other partner rated, on a scale of 1-10, how loved they
    felt by that tone of voice and embodiment. We also said the
    words "yellow, green orange," while gazing with the same intention
    and then finally, "I hate you," in the most loving tone possible,
    proving forever the old maxim, its not what you say but how you say
    it.

    Let's see . .. Day 2:

    A lifetime achievement award was given to James Fowler, who attended
    the event with his wife, for his work on the stages of faith. Rollie
    gave us a presentation outlining Fowler's stages of faith, which
    meshed very nicely with the other developmental frameworks used by
    Ken. James Fowler and Ken hugged. They were both visibly moved, as
    was Fowler's wife and it was a very touching moment.

    Genpo Roshi led most of day 2, with 7 hours of Big Mind. Yes, we
    were nearly mush by the end! Genpo introduced us to new permutations
    of Big Mind such as the voice of Great Faith and Great Doubt, asking
    each what they offer the self. He evoked the voices of uncertainty
    and impermanence. He evoked the competitor, the mature competitor and
    the immature competitor. He evoked the "disowned" competitor. (How
    does the self disown you? he asked)

    Finally, the voice of tradition. Here Stuart David raised his hand
    and pointed out that art is a tradition too, and one that deserves to
    be honored as a celebration of spirituality over the centuries.

    This issue of tradition-- do we need tradition (lineage)? What's to
    be gained and lost by adhering to religious traditions? This issue
    brings us to Day 3, which was attended by 120 people as it was open
    to the public. Diane Hamilton loosely led the day. Sofia Diaz added
    spice with some sorely needed movement.

    Ken spoke for about an hour at the end putting James Fowler's stages
    of faith in an integral context. Ken attended all 3 days of the
    conference, but was mostly quiet on the sidelines. He looked OK. As
    always I was filled with immense gratitude while he spoke.

    I wish I could give you all more than facts about what occurred at
    the event. I would like to beam out through cyber space the love, the
    optimism, the commitment to spirit and evolution that swelled the
    room in the Westin Westminster Hotel. Please consider this post one
    small beam of light originating just outside Boulder, Colorado,
    flowing out from the ISC, radiating into the world.
