Friends of Dolano
You have stumbled upon a treasure.
Dolano, the underground zen master !!
This website was built out of gratitude for Dolano, radical Zen master, as she calls herself, and also out of excitement to let more people know about her work.
We don’t know anyone else in the whole wide world
who does Dolano’s job— pushing seekers off the cliff.
This has no price. Dolano will appeal to those who are already on the path and who have tried many things.The seeker who is ready would give anything for that. So to have found Dolano is simply amazing, incredible luck…
On the spiritual circuit, Dolano will appeal to people who are at "the end of their path ".
In Zen stories, Zen masters don't advertise themselves; they wait for seekers to find them. Many of us who have come to know Dolano feel incredibly lucky to have come across her, as she is not so well known. In fact you could say that her work is almost underground. If something here catches your attention, perhaps you'll consider writing down her name in case you'd like to find her again
There are some big bright spiritual masters whose job it is to attract as many people as possible to the path. They have to speak a form of truth that will echo with people from all walks of life. Dolano's work is different.
Dolano’s light will not attract people who are not yet on the path. She will appeal to those who are already on the path and who have tried many things.She will appeal to people who are at "the end of their path ".
Open Satsang schedule
Twice a month, Dolano holds an “Open satsang” where anyone can come for ninety minutes of questions and answers. All are welcome to show up for the open satsang. They help the seeker get ready for the last satsang ( intensive)
Every year, it is held on the same dates and starts at 2:00 pm at the same location.
You can read more about Dolano's Open satsangs and her Intensive satsangs and listen to recordings of Open satsangs here .
January 10 & 25
August 14 & 26
October 11 & 27
Listen to satsangs with Dolano
Question: After liberation of mind can we use the mind sufficiently ?
What is the meaning of spontaneous answers. Sometime I am lost and I don’t know if I should listen to myself or if I should listen to others. What is the true nature of the mind? What is the function of the mind besides worrying? And more…”
Why does staying in a state of no-thought take so much effort?
"Why does it take so much effort to hold this state of thoughtlessness, and why it is so easy to slip into thinking? It almost seems the mind's default setting to go into thinking and feelings and imagining."
I don’t really understand the point of waking up
"Hi Dolano, I have been attending your Open Satsang for the last 3 years. I come regularly but I have not been able to make a decision about the Intensive Satsang. I keep thinking about it but I am not able to make a decision. Deep down I fear that I will lose something and I don’t know what.
So, that fear is holding me back. I don’t know how to get the courage… That is my question."
Satsang roar ...
Just am sending you a small hi - and a big thank you -
from across the sea :) I am a little bit confused with
this “distance” by the way, hahaha. My math is not
that good ;)
Timeless gratitude to you. And endless love :D
Thank you for not wasting any time, for speaking
and loving as you talk: right straight to the point!!
I hope to meet you soon in Intensive Satsang.
