John Prendergast ~ Opening to the Ground: The Path of Immanence ~ In-Person

Sunday, July 14, 2024 @ 2:00pm~4:00pm

Sebastopol, 8476 Sonoma Ave.
Sebastopol, CA,

Opening to the Ground: The Path of Immanence – while the first step in awakening involves transcending our personal narrative and waking “up” to our true nature as unbounded awareness, we must also wake ‘down” into the heart and ground in order to embody this understanding in our ordinary life – the path of immanence. This requires that emotional and instinctual levels of our conditioning are increasingly infused with the light of Awareness.

John Prendergast, Ph.D is a spiritual teacher and retired psychotherapist and adjunct professor of psychology at CIIS, well known for his pioneering work in integrating non-dual wisdom and psychotherapy.
