Jeannie Zandi ~ Being Love

Saturday, January 22, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

The heart longs to live as love and for our lives to be true to our essence. Join Jeannie and friends to explore what it means to be love in our everyday lives.

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.

You're welcome to join even if you can't attend all the live sessions.

What is the experience of being seated in our inner authority? Of more fully landing here in the timeless now? Of being grounded in but not limited to the body?

This series of four meetings will continue the vital exploration of the groundless ground that we began last spring, further unpacking this dense instinctual level of conditioning in order to more deeply embody our spiritual understanding.

Many long-term spiritual practitioners remain unfamiliar with this critically important domain and are subject to doubting their inner authority and being regularly hijacked by the deeply conditioned and unconscious fears embedded in this area.

Sunday, January 16th “Ground Zero: Opening to Not Knowing”

Sunday, January 23rd “Discovering Open-Bodiedness”

Sunday, January 30th “The Willingness and Unwillingness to Be Here”

Sunday, February 6th “Being Seated in Our Inner Authority”

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., is the author of The Deep Heart and In Touch, a retired Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology at CIIS, and a retired psychotherapist. He studied for many years with the European sage, Jean Klein, as well as with Adyashanti, and offers online and in-person retreats.

iRest Group ~ Yogic Relaxation Practice

Monday, January 31, 2022 @ 6:00pm-7:00pm (Pacific Time)

Open Circle is pleased to be offering biweekly facilitated iRest sessions. Developed by meditation master Richard Miller, iRest is a modernized form of the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra or “yogic sleep”. It is a restorative practice that promotes deep healing, health, and well-being. This 45-60 minute-long group will be gently led by Kate Foley, an iRest trained facilitator. It will consist of a full 30 minute guided meditation, along with the opportunity to share and connect with community. The meditation is done lying down, and is an invitation for your nervous system to truly rest: nothing to do, nowhere to go, nothing to be; simply a time gifted to yourself to relax and to be supported. Join as often as you like, and keep yourself nourished and balanced during these challenging times. No prior yoga experience necessary.

Suggested donation: $10 to $20
No one turned away for lack of funds. Please register early if you can.
