    There’s an urgency today to evolve beyond humanity’s current ego-based paradigm, and along with it, a unique expression of enlightenment is emerging. Amoda’s teachings show you that awakening is no longer about abandoning or transcending physical reality in order to live a spiritual life; rather, it’s about the fulfillment of your divine destiny by living the truth of your inner radiance while in an earthly body. Through these teachings, you are called to anchor yourself in the pristine perfection of your inner light and then to fully embody and express this light amidst the imperfection and darkness of the world. The invitation is for you to discover authentic freedom by being both fully awake and fully human. --- Amoda Maa will also be with us in BERKELEY AUG. 6th. See our FULL CALENDAR for details....

    JUST THIS --- 4 DAY At Home Intensive with Isaac Shapiro --- Dates: Thursday, Aug. 3rd & Friday, Aug. 4th from 10am-12pm PDT Saturday, Aug. 5th, Sunday, Aug. 6th from 9:30-11am & 12-1:30pm PDT ----- Join Isaac for a four day intense immersion into being with what is. This includes an at home weekend retreat. From the comfort of your home you will be supported by a like-minded community from around the world and through direct but good-humored questioning will unravel the conditioning of the mind and the nervous system revealing deeper intimacy and connection in the moment. Can you truly be present with Just This? What is here for you to discover…. This online retreat format is an exciting container that allows for deeper work with the consistency and support of a teacher and community -- without the normal cost and logistics that an on location retreat entails. It also provides the unique opportunity to be opening and exploring deeply while still living your daily life. “This is an invitation to recognize the Truth of yourself. Who you are, and have always been. As you are already This, there is no need for any effort or "getting there", just the simple recognition of That in which everything appears. As we bring awareness to unconscious habits, there is a shift that occurs. In the course of investigation, we spontaneously recognize the true nature of ourselves. To live like this is an expression of unconditional love in which there is a savoring of this moment`s experience as the beloved.”...

  • Susanne Marie ~ Opening Into Your Natural State Using Your Senses

    Susanne Marie 2017....full body...

    Recently featured in conversation with Adyashanti on Buddha at the Gas Pump, Susanne Marie offers teachings in support of freedom, and the celebration of our common essence of love and unity with all life. Her work is transformational and empowering, as she points to the remembering of That which we have always been, allowing truth to become ever more conscious of Itself through a human life. In Susanne’s words: “What freedom reveals is a vast cosmic body where all pain everywhere is felt, and where joy and peace are likewise known as One Self. You don’t get away from anything; you gain the whole of creation which contains all polarities and realities simultaneously.” Susanne lives in Northern California and offers spiritual mentoring to both individuals and groups. ----- “The more that “self” falls away, the more we sense an intimacy with existence, with one another, and with all that arises within us. We can thus meet life without defense, opening us up to a vast, nuanced, deeply felt, and rich tapestry of experience.”...
