In very practical language this class emphasizes tools and essential / experiential Zen mechanics to bring peace and harmony back into one’s daily life.
Topics discussed will also include:
What increases ‘Monkey Mind’ and strengthens unsupportive thought patterns in our rotating mental / psychological orbit.
How to untie painful knots and access True Self. Ego 101 and instructions on the skillful use of the Zen scalpel that liberate us from so many judgmental, limiting beliefs.
Zen, releasing & inner freedom: Mind and the two operating systems; how to address acidic ‘holding patterns’ and the body’s residual (energetic) karmic pull which can keep us stuck and limits deeper spiritual insights from arising.
An exploration of the deeper aspects of ego, its maturation and Velcro hold in the body-mind. It also addresses the ‘backward step’ to the boundless fundamental consciousness and freedom beyond the ego’s karmic pull.
All are welcome!
Hae Kwang Sunim started training at the age of 18 in Thailand. He has taken full seminary and in temple training, with graduated ordinations (including Bhikkhu ordination) under Patriarch Kun Sunim in South Korea. He spent over 25 years distilling the deepest and hardest to grasp teachings into a simplified language so it can be taught and effectively applied directly in daily life. In 2005, the 19th Headquarters in Korea appointed Venerable Hae Kwang as Director of Bo Kwang Zen Center Palm Springs, U.S.A. In 2013, the Western Bhikkhus Council nominated Hae Kwang Sunim 교구장 Kyo Goo Jahng of all American-European Temples (closest english translation: North American-European Oversight Head / Bishop / Director).
Hae Kwang Sunim drew from the most effective mind-body teachings he acquired from studying under different teachers in the East, including the teachings of Wat Bua Luang in Thailand. The methodology is based on the ancient Eastern principles of Hai Palung (Energy Healing), Pon Klie Kwan Sow (Emotional Release), Meditation, Food Based Healing and the importance of compassion, gratitude, oneness, outreach and the need to support the whole person holistically - body, mind and spirit.

Cristina Gabriel’s Bio:
Cris is a great believer in self-care, self-love and self-compassion. She believes that we all should be mindful about our needs for healing everyday whether physically, emotionally or mentally. As Cris says “we need a connection to others and when we practice self-care and self-compassion, we create a greater connection to our own self. When our body is healthy, free from pain and of calm mind, we can then contribute to our wellbeing and have healthier relationships with our family, friends, and community.”
Her own healing journey along with the support of others, led her to find her passion teaching Yoga, as well as practicing Thai Yoga Massage and Reiki, including her exceptional way of facilitating Drumming Circle and Healing Dance. She finds joy and healing in her offerings through the positive and often profound connection and energy exchange between herself and her clients. Cris truly cares about others and her practice is mainly based on the foundational principle of “Metta Bhavana” – loving kindness or compassion. She always invites her clients to receive her treatments with an open heart and open mind, facilitating the healing process to occur naturally with compassion and trust.
