Sonya Amrita Bibilos~ Receiving the Light of Christ & Abundant Love

Sunday, December 17, 2017 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Worldwide Web Event,
Online Video Meeting - (phone access also available)
Sonya Bibilos_2016

As part of awakening, Divine Love is meant to be unconditionally seen, received, and embodied in your mind, heart, body, and life. If you are like most people, there are ways in which you resist the immensity of Love in you and in the universe – out of habit, confused belief, wounds, or feelings of unworthiness. There is an abundance of Love in you, for you, and around you that you can receive now. Ultimately, this love can support you to heal old stories. The light from Christ Consciousness is a conduit for and communication of Divine Love. It is a vibration of grace that softens the human mind to receive the immensity of Divine Love. Join us for this special satsang for the season.

About Sonya Amrita:

A gifted shaman, healer and intuitive guide, Sonya Amrita Bibilos experienced a series of life-changing awakenings while working at a Silicon Valley software company, and later while serving as the Program Director for her spiritual teacher, Adyashanti.

Satsang with Pamela Wilson ~ Embracing this moment

Pamela Wilson

Fellowship of the Heart hosts this event.
Co-sponsored by Open Circle
71 Windsor Lane, Petaluma- Home of Menahem & Jennifer Anderman

Sangha and Refreshments till 5:00 pm. You are invited to bring a savory or sweet snack (vegan/vegetarian) to share. We will provide beverages. Please bring back jacks if you want to sit on the floor.

Suggested donation $10-20, no one turned away.

From Pamela: here we are, benevolent rooted space wearing a remarkably sensitive instrument called the body. Most sages report the body mind insists on being included and permeated by presence, so it too, can know and live its naturalness. The body is the five elements, already free with no history, though it has born witness to all. As compassion we will be instantly aware of any suffering and answer its call, as stillness we will be aware of remaining restlessness. To be with what is in the moment, this is our function and is at the heart of all longing. Join with your fellow sages in satsang, sharing what you are noticing is an act of love.

Pamela speaks the Truth of advaita, non-duality - that the universe is one undivided whole. For the last fifteen years she has traveled widely in the United States, Canada and Europe, holding satsang and giving private sessions. She sat with Robert Adams and Neelam. Week-long retreats have been held in Mexico, Costa Rica, France, the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA. She has endeared herself to many through her lighthearted humor and compassion, and deep understanding of what it is to be human. She lives in the Bay Area of Northern California.

Drop-ins welcome.
Please plan to arrive before 2pm so we can all settle in together. Doors open at 1:30pm.

Our home is the far right house in a grouping of four houses off of Windsor Lane. We are the last grouping on the right from “D” street direction
and the first grouping on the left from Western Avenue direction.
Parking is available on Windsor Lane. Please do not park in the driveway area.

You are welcome to stay for beverages & light refreshments after our Satsang.

Looking forward to sharing with you.
Namaste

January RASA Series

Saturday, January 6, 2018
Online Retreat,
Web Video Meetings - (phone access also available)
Ramaji & Ananda_2crop

January RASA Series

4 Sessions with Ramaji & Ananda

Dates: Saturdays Jan. 6, 13, 20, 27

11:00 am - 12:30 pm Pacific Time

 

Join Ramaji & Ananda for another whole month of RASA sessions! After a powerful October Saturday series with Open Circle, Ramaji and Ananda will be returning January to offer 4 more Saturdays of intense energy transmission and integration support. Gather with community from around the world and experience the healing powers of RASA (Ramaji Advaita Shaktipat Attunement)!  

Ramaji is the author of eight books on non-duality including “1000,” “No Mind No Problem” and “Who Am I? Meditation.” In Spring, 2011 he was giving a conventional spiritual healing to a woman with chronic fatigue syndrome when a sphere of brilliant white light the size of a beach ball came down into the woman's body. He soon realized that this light had the power to spiritually awaken people. He called it RASA which means “essence” in Sanskrit. He then knew his mission in life: to give RASA and awaken as many people as possible.

In November, 2015 Ramaji received signs that he would be meeting the soul mate and teaching partner he had waited for all his life. In February, 2016 Ananda Devi came to him to receive RASA. She was already in non-duality after several spontaneous deep spiritual awakenings. She stabilized at LOC 1000 immediately in the first session. On that first day they recognized that they would be teaching together.

Ananda learned how to give RASA in July, 2016. Knowing that Ananda was supposed to teach with him as soon as possible, Ramaji then put Ananda through the most intense spiritual “boot camp” training he had given any student. She passed all of his tests and challenges with flying colors.

In January, 2017 they began giving satsang and RASA together to online groups and live satsang groups. They also give private online RASA sessions separately and together.

They do not consider themselves gurus or spiritual teachers. Instead they prefer to be thought of as “spiritual activists” or “transformational agents.” Thanks to the RASA silent spiritual transmission, they do not have to rely on words or concepts. Their mission in life is to deliver RASA on a global scale and spiritually awaken as many people as possible.

Learn more about Ramaji and Ananda and their offering at www.Ramaji.org

This Special RASA Month will consist of:

  • Four RASA sessions given by both Ramaji and Ananda

  • Four gatherings of Support and Integration

  • Video Recordings of all four gatherings

Registration: $120

Scholarships available

When:  Saturdays January 6, 13, 20, 27  from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Pacific Time

Where: Webinar

Susanne Marie ~ The Power of Self-knowing

Sunday, January 7, 2018 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Worldwide Web Event,
Online Video Meeting - (phone access also available)
Susanne Marie 200x300

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

Why do we dim the light of our knowing? Why do we give power away to authorities outside ourselves, forgetting that we hold access to direct knowing through the inherent intelligence of our own light of awareness? Perhaps now is the time to consider connecting to the power of self-direction and inner wisdom, a birthright with which we have all been graced, rather than keeping the light of self-knowing dimmed. Together we will explore the place from which self-knowing arises.

Recently featured in conversation with Adyashanti on Buddha at the Gas Pump, Susanne Marie offers teachings in support of freedom, and the celebration of our common essence of love and unity with all life. Her work is transformational and empowering, as she points to the remembering of That which we have always been, allowing truth to become ever more conscious of Itself through a human life. In Susanne’s words: “What freedom reveals is a vast cosmic body where all pain everywhere is felt, and where joy and peace are likewise known as One Self. You don’t get away from anything; you gain the whole of creation which contains all polarities and realities simultaneously.” Susanne lives in Northern California and offers spiritual mentoring to both individuals and groups.

“The more that “self” falls away, the more we sense an intimacy with existence, with one another, and with all that arises within us. We can thus meet life without defense, opening us up to a vast, nuanced, deeply felt, and rich tapestry of experience.”

Shakti Caterina Maggi ~ Embodying Awakening

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 @ 7:00-8:45 pm (Pacific Time)
Falkirk Cultural Center, San Rafael,
1408 Mission Ave
San Rafael, CA United States
Shakti Caterina Maggi_2017

The spiritual journey inevitably leads to the confrontation of our "spiritual life" with our "material life", discovering how and where we truly embody the truth of our heart. Realizing the emptiness of our true nature is just the starting point of an integration process that involves all aspects of our lives. After the recognition of the nothingness of our Being, the second part of the answer to the question "Who am I?" leads us to several moment of crisis in which old patterns of behavior that are still based on the ego-based separative mind emerge to be dissolved by the light of Awareness.

Shakti has spent many years deepening this integration process that happens mostly after the first glimpse of recognition and can keep unfolding for several years. With wisdom, humor, and heartfelt connection, Shakti shares a message of discovering our divinity at the very core of our humanity. Shakti has been sharing this message of non separation since 2003 with many people around the world, especially in Italy and in Europe, holding satsangs and retreats. Although her message is profoundly in tune with Advaita and nondual Tantric traditions, she offers a contemporary and accessible vision of what is true awakening.
