Life is not a meaningless series of experiences happening to no one. For each of us, it feels vitally important that we find real love and happiness, by understanding who we are on both the spiritual and human levels. From the start, this requires that we fully embrace our desire for happiness.

As we intelligently work with desire, we are also invited to abandon the mistaken quest to lose our sense of self. The real self is conscious presence, and we cannot lose what is infinitely ours. Observing takes us all the way from the most deluded sense of self, and its misguided desires, to the subtle wisdom of consciousness.

Michael Damian shares a clear vision of awakening and psychological integration. Arising from a powerful spiritual awakening in 2006, and his practice as a depth psychologist, Michael’s teachings point to the simplicity of knowing our real nature while also mastering our psychology. Michael’s approach is based, in part, on work with A Course in Miracles and his main teacher Barry Long. He is the author of The Art of Freedom: A Guide to Awakening.

Ajaya Sommers & Dustin DiPerna ~ Of Earth and Stars: Blending Radical Awakening with Embodied Intimacy

Sunday, September 29, 2019 @ 7:00pm-9:30pm
Chochmat Halev, Berkeley, CA, USA, 2215 Prince St.
Berkeley, CA United States

Awakening to the ever-present and expansive nature of awareness is only half of the journey. For many of us, the real work is to learn how to more fully embrace our relative human experience with greater levels of authenticity, intimacy, and connection.

In this evening immersion, Ajaya and Dustin will lead a series of practices designed to help you come to a fuller understanding of how your humanity is an expression of your divinity:

Through an intelligent weaving of both individual and collective practices, you’ll have the chance to discover the original innocence of your humanity (Earth) as well as the freedom and joy that comes from touching your own divinity (Stars).

Dustin DiPerna is a Harvard-trained scholar of world religions. He studies and teaches in the Tibetan meditation lineages of Mahamudra and Dzogchen with Daniel P. Brown and is a long-term student of American philosopher Ken Wilber. He currently teaches at Stanford University.

Ajaya Sommers is a gifted healer, teacher and creative catalyst in the field of embodied awakening, and facilitates and transmits a unique discovery process, called, Core Embodiment, an integrated system of embodiment practices, principles and perceptual orientations to awaken and align with the power of our human potential.
