Event will be recorded and emailed to participants after each meeting.
You're welcome to join even if you can't attend all the live sessions.

In this 3 part event we will go deeper into the exploration of our longing and how this can open to the Freedom that we always are. How can we reconnect to our original longing beyond all concepts? And how can we live this longing and let it lead us to come home to who we really are? With guided meditations, talks and dialogues, we reconnect with our longing and wake up to the freedom that we are.

Day 1 - What is the Longing?
I invite you to remember what triggered your original longing to come home to yourself. Was it a particular event? Was it meeting a particular person? Was it a loss or tragedy? Or was this longing always there as long as you can remember? If we have been on the spiritual path for many years we might have got so caught up in spiritual concepts and hoping for some perfect ‘one day’, that we have forgotten why we even started this journey. In remembering the original longing we can start to reconnect with the innocent and true call home.

Day 2 - What is Freedom?
On this path we have picked up so many spiritual concepts about what it might mean to be free. We tend to want to be free from discomfort, fear and pain. But true freedom is not limited to any concept. It is not about being ‘free from’ but more about being ‘free with’. Freedom is who you are, and not about having a perfect experience.

Day 3 - Longing to be Free
Reconnecting to our original longing and then acknowledging that the freedom we have been longing for isn’t ‘out there’ or ‘one day’, we come full circle back to meeting the longing itself. What you have been longing for is already who you are. You are already free and always have been, despite any experience of apparent restriction. This is radical freedom that unconditionally includes whatever is here. Embracing our direct experience rather than waiting to be free from it, is what we have been longing for.

About Unmani
Meeting with Unmani is meeting with yourself in the most real and alive way. Unmani is originally from the UK, but has lived in many countries around the world. Since she was a child, Unmani didn’t identify with being a separate individual, but assumed there was something wrong with her, until she came across the expression of Satsang and nonduality. Truth has always been her passion. Unmani had teachers including Osho, Dolano, Nathan Gill, Tony Parsons, Gangaji and several other amazing people who are not considered ‘teachers’.

In 2013 she met her husband, the wonderful musician, and courageous lover of life, Robert Hanuman. In 2015 their son, Sky, was born. On 3rd January 2018, Robert Hanuman died suddenly from a heart attack while they were in India. Robert Hanuman’s presence deeply influenced Unmani’s teaching, and in the time they were together it evolved into a more human expression of the courage to live the paradox of the Absolute, living as this human. Robert put Unmani’s words to his beautiful classical guitar music and Unmani still plays his songs at her meetings.

Unmani has been holding meetings and retreats all over the world since 2003, and in this time people have been deeply touched by her work: She meets each person exactly where they are at, and in whatever they need at the time, while at the same time holding them in the truth of who they really are beyond it all. This combination, and paradox, of the personal and impersonal, brings so much depth, openness and healing to people’s lives. They wake up to who they really are, and discover how this is lived and integrated into their daily lives.

Unmani has written three books: I am Life itself, Die to Love and The Courage to Come Alive (soon to be published). Unmani holds regular meetings and retreats several times a year as well as monthly webinars on different themes. There are many videos of her teaching from the past nearly 20 years on her Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/Unmani

Robert Hanuman’s music can be downloaded on iTunes here: https://music.apple.com/nl/artist/robert-hanuman/1329878840?l=en

Sliding Scale: $60 to $90

Unmani ~ Longing to Be Free ~ Online Retreat

Friday, June 24, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time) ~ Part of 3-part Retreat June 24, 25 & 26

For so many of us, we started out on this spiritual path with a deep longing to come home. Maybe you had a heart-felt longing that was impossible to conceptualize. This longing is beyond all the spiritual concepts or any other concepts. It is the longing to meet yourself right now, and no longer compromise or overlook this. In this three-part event we will go deeper into the exploration of our longing, and how this can open to the Freedom that we always are. How can we reconnect to our original longing beyond all concepts? And how can we live this longing and let it lead us to come home to who we really are? With guided meditations, talks and dialogues, we reconnect with our longing and wake up to the freedom that we are.

Meeting with Unmani is meeting with yourself in the most real and alive way. Unman, who is originally from the UK, has been holding meetings and retreats all over the world since 2003, and in this time people have been deeply touched by her work: She meets each person exactly where they are at, and in whatever they need at the time, while at the same time holding them in the truth of who they really are beyond it all.

Sunday, July 10, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

Living undivided is to be wholehearted. Join Jeannie to explore the beauty, challenges and practice of meeting life with your whole heart.

Jeannie’s gift for inviting people to join her in resting and rooted presence evokes a deep meeting with oneself and reality. Within that, Jeannie’s humor and iconoclasm serve to bring people into an understanding that is beyond the intellectual. Through silent and guided meditation, spontaneous talks and exchange with participants, Jeannie will host a space of clarity and warmth where the richness of relating can be explored safely and your innermost questions met fully.

Jeannie Zandi is the director of Living as Love, a nonprofit organization dedicated to seeding a culture of the Heart on the planet, inspiring, teaching and supporting people to live from their essence as Love. A year before the birth of her daughter, Jeannie was plunged into a dark night of the soul that culminated in a radical shift of consciousness. She is known for her fearless clarity, tender mercy toward humanness, and a juicy, poetic and often humorous style that draws from Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Christian mysticism and the ongoing revelation of fully engaged living.
