| Wednesday Afternoon – Private Instruction
For those seeking private Zen Instruction or spiritual dialog (mondo), Rev. Ryuun Joriki Baker, Osho offers private sessions on Wednesday afternoon and evenings. Private sessions are 60 minutes long and include 30 minutes of Zen dialectic therapy, followed by 20 minutes of meditation instructions. This balance of Zen Dialog and meditation creates a spiritual platform which addresses the core internal factors that either manifest a consciousness of suffering and separation, or peace and unity.
