Shakti Caterina Maggi ~ The Alchemy of True Heart – How to meet duality from our non-dual essence

Saturday, March 7, 2020 @ 11:00am-5:00pm

Chochmat Halev, Berkeley, CA, USA, 2215 Prince St.
Berkeley, CA United States

“The Heart is where consciousness abide” Ramana Maharshi

Meeting life and its polarities compels us to challenge our usual defense mechanisms and to access a deeper space in ourselves where manifestation is not separate from us. This space is the true Heart which is where our non-dual essence as consciousness is relating from.

The Heart is the great alchemist that can transform the fear of the false personality into the natural radiance of our being, sat- cit- ānanda (truth- consciousness-bliss). The transformation of the lead of fear into the gold of joy implies dying to images that we had built up about ourself and meeting life from something that is perceived as vulnerable, but is actually openness.
The workshop will be accompanied by perceptual experiences and satsang.

Shakti Caterina Maggi has been sharing a message of awakening to our true nature as One Consciousness since 2003. Her approach to Self-Realization is very contemporary and accessible, and is profoundly in tune with Advaita and the non-dual Tantric traditions. She reveals the real possibility of seeing what we truly are, and embodying it in our everyday lives with clarity, wisdom, and humor.

She was recently asked to contribute to the anthology On the Mystery of Being: Contemporary Insights into the Convergence of Science and Spirituality edited by Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo, the founders of the Science and Non-Duality (SAND) Conference. She teaches in Europe, Canada and the USA, offering satsang, seminars and retreats.

“The true Heart is the space in which we can deeply meet ourselves and the entire world. The way to the Heart is an embodied Consciousness, in which we are divinely human.”
