Marlies Myoku Cocheret ~ Falling into the Ecstasy of Now ~ Monthly Satsang

Friday, August 20, 2021 @ 10:00am - 12:00 noon (Pacific Time)

In summer our bodies warm up, which for me is a basic joy of life. I feel the cells in my body softening and opening. Relaxation happens.

We are like little ladybugs, trying to crawl up the sides of a steep bowl. At the bottom of the bowl is Now – the place we are most afraid to fully be. We can’t completely escape the bowl. We always fall back towards “just this” no matter how hard we try.

Then, when we finally, totally, utterly let go we fall and fall. Then the ecstasy of Now is ours.

Please join us for this Monthly Satsang where we together fall into the ecstasy of Now.

After the Dharma talk, there will be an opportunity to share, so please bring your experience, presence and questions to share with the group.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret de la Morinière has devoted her life to the Beloved. She brings a potent invitation into the deep Silence that we are. The kindness of her gentle and direct teaching guides us home like a lighthouse. Marlies has been offering satsang and retreat since 2000 when Adyashanti asked her to teach. She lives in Santa Cruz, California and works internationally as a psychologist, Hakomi therapist and Tantric Educator.

Marlies is interviewed in the book Awakened Relating. A Guide To Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships by Lynn Marie Lumiere, and in the book Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Wisdom by R.M. Robinson.

“With Adya, the bottom fell out. I deeply knew I am not this body, mind, thought, psyche, and I am also all these things as well. There was no in and/or out. All is One.”
