Teacher Spotlight: Osho Zenju Earthlyn Manuel

Tara Mandala is pleased to share the upcoming virtual retreat offered by Osho Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, Being with Darkness and Death as a Source of Power over the October 14 – 16 weekend.

Please enjoy this “Teacher Spotlight” blog post on Osho Zenju. We look forward to welcoming you for this virtual retreat, and looking at darkness and death and the source of power within both. To learn more, read below, or click here.

Osho Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, born to parents who migrated from rural Louisiana at the start of WWII, has walked through many different doors spiritually and academically. She was ordained in the Suzuki Roshi lineage. She has a PhD and she’s also a poet and author.

Essentially, she’s a Seer in which she has woven herself into various frameworks to ultimately bring forth her visionary work. Zenju has embraced the active role of Seer, in watching for obstacles to awareness, despite the loss of such a role in the American culture.

Her transmissions come through her books The Shamanic Bones of Zen, The Deepest Peace, Sanctuary, The Way of Tenderness, and the Black Angel Cards: 36 Oracles and Messages, her first visionary experience. She also teaches from her experience of African and Native American indigenous ceremony and her own awakening on the intersection of spirituality and systemic oppression.

In this video, Osho Zenju talks about the discovery of life in darkness and death.
