Zen Deep Nourishment – From Hungry Ghost to True Fulfilment
5-Week Home Study Course
This course is about how to find satisfaction and freedom, and how to operate in such a way that you live a rich, free and satisfied life.
The underlying message of the modern world is that you’re not all right as you are – you’re not good enough. This is the “Hungry Ghost” (gaki) realm. It’s one dominated by feelings of lack and feelings of want. People can live in the Hungry Ghost mindset, and they are, by definition, stuck and not free.
This course will help you deal with the deep suffering of ‘want’ that affects our lives on almost every level and find in its place a deep nourishment and satisfaction. With this, you will not only be able to escape the Hungry Ghost state, but really “catch alight” in your life and passions (and in turn help others catch alight).
Based around the Zen Daisegaki ceremony, Daizan Roshi will take you through the main themes, concepts and practices around Zen deep nourishment and allow you to reap their benefits.

Really well laid out with clear guidance and the dharma talks are great background to the practice. The guided meditations are brilliant.Anna
The ceremonies were powerful and important for bringing the techniques and material into my life. I actually used the ‘tanden fire’ practice while camping in the mountains recently. It kept me warmer on a frigid night. Jason
I loved doing the course Sarah
I’ve been doing the practices most days as well as my normal zazen and there’s a feeling of silence/calm which is almost palpable. Lloyd
