June 25th at 10am is a FREE pre-retreat event, which will provide a taste of John’s upcoming 6 session online retreat. See our Online events page for details.

While many Eastern contemplative traditions emphasize the importance of wisdom and a transcendent inner freedom, there is another equally important human impulse – to lovingly face and embrace our ordinary, messy and often challenging human life, just as it is. The paths of wisdom and love, transcendence and immanence, meet in the fully awakened heart and lead to a great intimacy with the whole of life.

In this online retreat, we will explore:

  • Recognizing our essential Wholeness, regardless of our psychological “wounds” and conditioning.
  • Disidentifying from the strategic mind.
  • Seeing through limiting core beliefs.
  • Uncovering and trusting the felt-sense of heart wisdom & presence.
  • Navigating the subtle layers of the heart: ego, soul, and universal (Heart).
  • Sensing into the center of reactive feelings and somatic contractions from heart-felt spacious awareness in order to discover their transparent nature.
  • Using relationships as an opportunity to withdraw projections and deepen in intimacy with oneself and the whole of life: The Great Intimacy.

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., is the author of In Touch: How to Tune in to the Inner Guidance of Your Body and Trust Yourself.

He offers residential retreats and seminars, mostly on the West coast. John is also the senior editor of The Sacred Mirror (with P. Fenner & S. Krystal) and Listening from the Heart of Silence (with K. Bradford).
