Self / No-Self: Continuing the Dialogue
Venue: Hanazono University, Kyoto, Japan
We offer you a chance to explore the growing interface between Eastern and Western concepts of what it means to be human at the second Kyoto conference on Buddhism and psychotherapy. The first was held in 1999, with the proceedings published as “Awakening and Insight” edited by Polly Young-Eisendrath and Shoji Muramoto, (London: Routledge 2001). This year we look at the theme of subjectivity in Buddhism, meditation and psychotherapy. We ask challenging questions:
You may present a paper, explore the unconscious through social dreaming, share ideas in group discussions and so deepen our collective understanding. If you wish to offer a paper or a workshop, please send us a proposal (of not more than 1000 words) by the end of July. There will be plenty of time to explore this beautiful City, which is a United Nations World Heritage site.
The likely cost for the Conference is expected to be between $ 350 - 450. Those whose papers are selected may attend free. You make your own accommodation and flight arrangements. The likely price for per night is in the region of $ 50 - $ 75. We can advise about local Hotels, and may be able to negotiate some reductions.
There is also a chance to join a five day Soto Zen mediation retreat at the ancient and beautiful Hokyo-ji Monastery in the mountains nearby, from 22nd to 26th inclusive. If you are a practicing meditator with retreat experience, you may inquire about participating in this, contact Polly Young Eisendrath at email@example.com for details.
