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

The word sovereign was originally understood to mean supreme ruler. Sovereign indicates that you reign and are responsible. You take your seat on your throne and are the empress or emperor of your world. Whether the realm is peaceful and prosperous or in chaos, you are still the one in charge. You cannot abdicate. If you try, things get worse.

In spirituality I have found that naturally we are thrown into owning our body-being. First we might make ourselves dependent or less-than a teacher or power. Sooner or later there must come a point where we realize, “This is my life that needs to be lived as ME and no-body else.” Ultimately each of us has to completely own our true nature, otherwise we will always feel dependent on something outside ourselves.

You are a sovereign being. You have always been a sovereign being. For some reason along the way we have forgotten or we lost track of it. We got diverted.

During this four-satsang-retreat over a period of two weeks the aim is to empower you to take ownership of your life.

It is important to be rooted in and as silence in our bodies and to allow pure action to come forth. When we rest as silence or source, sovereignty naturally becomes action. That will bring forth trust, coherence and connection.

These times strongly invite us to own our sovereignty and not engage in polarization, division or separation. We are trained from birth to exhaust our energy on the outer happenings. The whole thing is out of balance.
When we stand in our sovereignty we step out of the matrix of good and bad, up or down. We step into the unified field. Now we know how to move in this world.

During this retreat we will bathe ourselves in the deep silence and listen. We will practice trusting our nature and letting our felt sense of body-being take action. We are the action and we are the pure love that needs to live this life. Nobody will do it for us.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret 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.”

Bruce Pardoe ~ Heart Fluency® Non-Dual Awakening & Emotional Healing Workshop

Sunday, January 31, 2021 @ 10:00am - 12:00 noon (Pacific Time)

Pure awareness is the basic, ordinary nature of our entire lives. It is accessible and obvious here and now. When we can plainly feel and recognize it in any moment, we naturally come to consciously and continuously inhabit it with ease. Heart Fluency® founder Bruce Pardoe will lead this 2 hour experiential journey with group exercises and guided meditations to directly feel your awakened nature. With Heart Fluency’s three-step practice you will also learn to utilize an embodied inner balance that harnesses the ever-present, unlimited capacities of awareness to allow emotional wounds, traumas and afflictive patterns to transform into your deepest gifts. This workshop stands on its own but is also a wonderful precursor to the Non-Dual Contemplative Daylong Retreat on February 7th.

For more than 40 years Bruce Pardoe has been navigating and facilitating the path of inner healing and non-dual wisdom. Bruce’s journey healing his own complex trauma led him to develop the radically gentle Heart Fluency® method for engaging emotional wounds and afflictive patterns as portals to directly embodying non-dual well-being and happiness. Heart Fluency combines neuroscience and the unconditional nourishment of pure awareness in a highly accessible, heart-centered approach.

After spending over two years on silent retreat, Bruce became a meditation teacher in the Vipassana tradition of Buddhism. He has completed Spirit Rock Meditation Center’s two-year Dharma Leader training, and has studied extensively in Asia in the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and Advaita. Bruce has also trained in Polyvagal Theory, Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement and Hakomi’s body-centered psychotherapy. Since 2007 Bruce has shared Heart Fluency trainings and workshops with conscious individuals, therapists and healers on four continents.

Bruce Pardoe ~ Heart Fluency® – Establish A Non-Dual Contemplative Practice: Daylong Retreat

Sunday, February 7, 2021 @ 9:00am - 4:00pm (Pacific Time)

Embody and live your freedom. Learn to use Heart Fluency’s highly accessible non-dual method as the basis of a meditation practice to experience and consolidate your ordinary awakened nature as your default orientation to life. This seven-hour retreat includes sitting and walking meditation, as well as straightforward teachings that will enable you to feel through your direct embodied and mental experience to the liberated, healing nature of pure awareness. Discover how a contemplative practice can cultivate a lasting, free relationship to reality that opens you to “flow”, and what is called “suchness” in Zen practice. As we deepen through the day we feel how awareness can heal our deepest wounds. This is a transformative, yet simple and affirming day of wondrous presence.
