The Zen of You & Me Integral Practice Course with Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei

Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei


Zen Study & Practice Series, Fall 2017

September 23 - November 25 (10 Classes)

9:00 - 10:15 am MT Via Zoom Conferencing


One Zen master has said that “The mind of unity is easy to achieve; it is the mind of difference that is difficult." Now, maybe more than ever, is the time to include and work with our differences: Personality differences, gender differences, race and cultural differences, differences in assumptions, values, and beliefs. This 10-week telecourse will give us access to unity and shared humanity, as well as practice in skills for including our differences. We will explore:


-- Sameness and difference in the body.

-- Soothing through listening; energizing through expression.

-- Looking at difference through a developmental lens.

-- Perspectival awareness as an Integral practice.

-- Meditation for deeper unity.


Diane Musho Hamilton is a practical, compassionate teacher and guide to help us live harmoniously with our spouses, partners, colleagues, parents, children. The 75-minute live sessions will include teaching, inquiry, dialog, guided meditations, and rich small group discussions.  You will learn that “getting along” is really a matter of discovering that our differences are nothing other than an expression of our even deeper shared unity.
