Kristin Kirk ~ Awakening the Joy of Surrender

Saturday, January 13, 2018 @ 2:00pm - 6:00pm

What better way to start the New Year than exploring the simplicity and the complexity of the unfolding call toward blissful surrender? We will explore the potency, practicality and gloriousness of surrender in relation to awakening and daily life, as well as dive deeper into the fundamentals of awakening. This daylong retreat is for both beginners and well-seasoned “surrenderers” alike.  We will finish our day together with an inner exploratory exercise and group healing.

Kristin Kirk experienced an initial awakening in 2003 which revealed healing gifts and a refined awareness of the subtle inner workings of consciousness, ultimately leading to the unending revelation/discovery of Self/No Self. This awakening radically transformed her experience of reality and her healing practice. Her authentic heart-centered teaching and embodied presence spring from direct experience, independent of any spiritual tradition. The enthusiastic response to her 2014 interview on Buddha at the Gas Pump revealed a deep need for an authentic non-traditional approach, as well as for multidimensional healing. Kristin supports and facilitates embodied awakening, integration and multidimensional functioning, through satsang, classes, individual and group healing sessions, meditation retreats, energetic transmission, and awakening journeys. She is currently writing a book to help support people in the awakening process.

“Humanity is awakening at an astounding speed. Many are opening to the gorgeous complexity of Being as their awakening deepens. The complexity can be overwhelming, perhaps confusing or uncomfortable, or simply ecstatic and mind-blowingly awesome. Amidst this remarkable inner transformation, the principles of awakening remain the same throughout all stages of Self-Realization. Surrender is the joyous key, but it is often misunderstood. Not only is it perhaps the most powerful seat you can rest in, but the joy and the freedom that come with it are limitless.”
