Amoda Maa’s teachings offer a timeless truth that is relevant to our modern times, speaking to the contemporary seeker who wants to go to the raw edge where our spirituality meets our humanity. Through her intimate dialogues, she invites you to reject nothing, welcome everything, and surrender into the deepest falling of the open heart.

What really matters is your willingness to turn towards tenderness in the midst of that which offends you, to stand as openness in the face of brokenness, and to bear the unbearable. This is the path of surrender .. and the only way I know to enter the slip-stream of unspeakable grace inside this human experience.

Amoda Maa is a spiritual teacher, offering meetings and retreats to support and deepen the living of an awakened life. She has been sharing her teachings since 2012, initially at small gatherings in the UK. Today, she lives in the US and her teachings are followed by a growing number of seekers world-wide. She has been a speaker at several conferences, a guest on numerous radio shows, and a guest teacher at various centers of spirituality and philosophy. She brings to her teachings a depth and breadth of understanding of the human journey, born out of her own immersion in the furnace of personal transformation. Her teachings are free from any lineage or tradition.

Amoda Maa is also the author of several books. Her most recent Embodied En-lightenment (published in 2017) — written 15 years after her awakening — is based on the many conversations at the cutting edge of spiritual inquiry in her meetings with people from all around the world, and addresses many of the ques-tions relevant to today’s seeker. It has been acclaimed as “a beautiful and pre-cious gift to an emerging new humanity” as well as “the best spiritual book since Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth.”
Amoda currently lives with her husband and beloved, Kavi, in New Mexico.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret ~ The Clarity Within Confusion

Sunday, June 14, 2020 @ 11:00am-5:00pm

When we give ourselves the opportunity to leave our busy world behind, we discover a completely different world. This other world is mysterious and filled with the awe of the universe. You will directly experience the simultaneity of the chronic dissociative state and the unfathomable silence that we are. Which is always here.
Our busy world is confusion, struggle and endless dissatisfaction. The world of reality is peace, clarity, love and profound truth.
Of course you have heard all of this before. The question is, which world do you choose to live in?

This day is an invitation to settle into Being. Together we will devote ourselves to the Being that we are. Along the way obstacles like trauma, pain, confusion and pleasure tend to arise. When we wholeheartedly receive them, naturally Being stands out as the only thing there really is. Which is You!

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. She helps people to see that freedom and peace lie not in escaping from difficulties, but rather in completely welcoming and receiving all that the Mystery presents.

She has been offering satsang and retreat since 2000 when Adyashanti asked her to teach. Marlies is trained as a psychologist in The Netherlands, a Hakomi therapist, and a Tantric educator. For over 25 years she has been ushering seekers into living the Divine in the body. She has a passion and a gift for bringing together the Sensual Body and the Silence of our Being.

She lives in Santa Cruz; California, but works internationally. 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.
