If our mind identifies completely with “personhood,” we remain in a prison of our own making and miss what frees us to simply BE. In experiencing Presence, we may feel unbound and temporarily experience peace. However, if our mind imagines “it” must remain as “only Awareness,” it may continually judge its human expressions, challenges, and conditioning, creating endless suffering. In this online retreat, we will explore the play of Presence and personhood in daily life. A nondual view does not choose absolute over relative but sees the play of both as a single flowing. Celebrating Halloween on the last day of our retreat invites a reflection on the masks we wear and project onto apparent “others.” Please join us for a retreat that will include silent meditation, experiential exercises, dharma talks, and discussion.

Dorothy Hunt serves as spiritual director of Moon Mountain Sangha, teaching at the invitation of Adyashanti. She is the founder of the San Francisco Center for Meditation and Psychotherapy and practiced psychotherapy from 1967 to 2020. She is the author of Only This!, Leaves From Moon Mountain, Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness, as well as a number of essays and articles on Nondual wisdom and psychotherapy.

Dorothy has a long and deep connection to the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and the path of Self-Inquiry, as well as the nondual teachings of Zen, Advaita, and the Christian mystics. In meeting Adyashanti, she was invited beyond identification with either the absolute or relative, finding freedom in what is awake in each of us regardless of the changing faces of experience. She is a mother and grandmother. Dorothy currently offers online satsangs and retreats, as well as private meetings by phone.
