Why Enlightenment is not enough
Beyond the self and the meditation cushion

The true quest of enlightenment is to expand beyond the self, and the transcendent experience, to live an awakened life by fully integrating the spiritual and the physical worlds for the next level of human evolution and environmental wellbeing.

And in fact, our awakening is not complete without this integration.

Awakening the “self” is not enough 

What truly matters is how we integrate the awakening in our daily lives ~ what we do with the awakening; where and how we live with the awakening.

Our awakening must be fully integrated and sustainable in all aspects of our lives.
It’s about living our awakening globally, not just personally.

There are two traps committed spiritual seekers can fall into 

The first is to focus only on the transcendent experience; believing that this will take you all the way. And that sitting in pure being is the end game. There is a sense of removal; of not being fully immersed in the world; not facing and moving through and with the shadow; the grit and the ordinariness of life. Isira calls this “spiritual escapism.”

The second is “spiritual self centredness” to focus only on ‘self’ and forgetting that your awakening is intrinsically connected to everything around you – your environment, your relationships, and the cosmos. We do not awaken in isolation.

In this 3 day retreat

In this 3 day retreat Isira will share what it takes to not just be spiritual but to live spiritual ~ to integrate and fully live a sustainable and an awakened life.

You will:

  • Discover how to integrate the spiritual and physical worlds with “The Four Pillars.” These are the foundations of holistic enlightenment, an awakened society and an awakened world.
  • Understand how to move with, and through, the personal and collective (global) shadow, rather than bypass it.
  • Be guided into transformative meditations that you can use again and again.
  • Have your deepest questions answered.

This will support you to expand and embrace holistic enlightenment ~ to live awakening – emotionally and psychologically –  in your relationships, our community and our environment.
