Approaches to Human Fragility: Anxiety, Trauma, and Grief
THE ANXIETY, TRAUMA, AND GRIEF ETHOS PROGRAM focuses on the psychospiritual role of grief in human life, and the modern conditions of anxiety and trauma, with particular interest in the intersection between the Post-Daoist concept of "info-colonization syndrome," or the way the infosphere has colonized modes of self-sovereignty and human freedom, and "biographical" trauma, or the shattering of the continuity between potential and fruition in the individual.

honoring the transmission-based tradition of mogadao
A transmission-based tradition means that teachers—and the bodies of teachers, and the body of knowledge that MogaDao teachers represent—are the only source of the teachings of MogaDao. In other words, there is no "media" available with regard to the practices of MogaDao.—there are only the teachers. MogaDao teachers are not permitted to record their online teachings and offer them to students as study tools outside of the live experience of their online teachings (streaming). This means that students, too, are part of this honor code, which establishes the MogaDao tradition as rather unique in the modern age. In some 30 years of teaching, Zhen Dao herself has never made videos of the vast practices of MogaDao; no material outside of the direct interface of her body has ever been available. Going online at this time, under the current circumstances, is a form of flowing with the Dao, of following necessity. However, this means that students taking her online classes—and the online classes of other MogaDao teachers—must participate in that timeworn honor code of non-recording. Zhen Dao, the MogaDao teachers, and the tradition of MogaDao are deeply grateful for your understanding and compliance in this regard.
