Embracing Radical Change

Thursday, June 16th, 2016 7:30pm – 9:00pm

Do you find you have big visions and goals about ways you would change your life, but find that somehow you keep falling back into old habits?  The spiritual life is one of profound transformation.  Yet even something that sounds simple like setting up a strong regular daily meditation practice can actually be a big change and is challenging for many of us.

“Immunity to change” is a tool introduced by Dr. Robert Kegan that helps us surface and explore hidden agendas and mental models that keep us stuck.  In this class we’ll use simple meditation techniques, teachings and interactive exercises to explore our big visions and how to transform old habits and views that are limiting us.


Duncan CryleDuncan Cryle has been practicing meditation for more than 20 years and has studied intensively with Doug Duncan Sensei since 2001. After completing a Ph.D. in philosophy he turned to a career as an IT consultant in the financial industry. He spent 5 years working short-term IT contracts and spending the remainder of the year with Doug Sensei – travelling, on retreat, and helping with the set-up and running of Clear Sky. His primary teaching focus is to develop ways to apply and integrate the rich tradition of meditation teachings into our busy and complex city lives.
