The teaching will be a dive into the heart of nonduality. An open and direct sharing about how our spiritual essence embodies in human experience to wake up to itself.

Lisa Cairns ~ About Love, Wisdom, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sunday, June 30, 2024 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

What non-duality means to me is that my life flows in between love and wisdom, or between nothingness and everythingness. It’s on this level that the human experience unfolds. Understanding that I am everything signifies the end of separation, recognizing that everything is love; and acknowledging that I am nothing represents wisdom. In between these realizations, the story of my life, or the life of the person, takes shape.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was my teacher, although he had passed away before I had the chance to meet him in person. Instead, I encountered his teachings through my own teachers. I feel immense gratitude for the way his teachings entered my life. On a human level, I can say that non-duality saved me. It completely transformed my life, altering its course in every way imaginable. It awakened me from the illusion I had been living under, the suffering of a mental reality.

For the past eleven years, Lisa has traveled around the world, sharing the amazing Indian philosophy called non-duality. She tries to communicate the limitless nature of life, and to open doors for anyone who wants to listen, providing a broader perspective on this magical thing we call life.

Chesaray ~ Somatic Self-Inquiry: Embodied Awakening and Psychological Integration through Movement

Sunday, July 7, 2024 @ 10:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time)

Somatic Self-Inquiry supports people in discovering their true nature by welcoming below-the-mind, bottom-up integration. When we are reminded of our Divinity deep within, we can be liberated from patterns that hold us back from joy and freedom. Through exploring the richness of the somatic depths and opening to the unknown, we find ourselves "in the world but not of it."

Chesaray is passionate about supporting those to awaken to the lived experience of Unconditional Love and Being. She is the Spiritual Director of Loving Ground, and offers online and in person retreats and courses based on a wide range of psychological, spiritual, holistic healing modalities that support human evolution.

Louise Kay ~ Embodied Awareness

Sunday, July 14, 2024 @ 9:00am-10:30am (Pacific Time)

If you bring your attention fully present into the now and inquire with a genuine, open curiosity into the truth of this moment, what is discovered is that underlying all experiences lies an invisible, potent presence. This presence is often referred to as stillness, being, consciousness or awareness, and is the eternal, formless essence of who you are. All else appears in and is perceived by this awareness. The recognition of this truth is followed by a sacred process of integration, which takes place on the level of body and mind, while one remains anchored in the formlessness of the unending now.
Louise Kay was born in the northwest of The UK. In her early thirties, she felt a deep call in her heart to visit India, where she experienced a profound spiritual awakening. As she opened more to this non-dual truth, a new form of expression revealed itself from deep in her heart.

Louise is passionate about supporting people to live a life of presence and unconditional love.

John Prendergast ~ Opening to the Ground: The Path of Immanence ~ In-Person

Sunday, July 14, 2024 @ 2:00pm~4:00pm
Sebastopol, 8476 Sonoma Ave.
Sebastopol, CA,
+ Google Map

While the first step in awakening involves transcending our personal narrative and waking "up" to our true nature as unbounded awareness, we must also wake 'down" into the heart and ground in order to embody this understanding in our ordinary life - the path of immanence. This requires that emotional and instinctual levels of our conditioning are increasingly infused with the light of Awareness.

John Prendergast, Ph.D is a spiritual teacher and retired psychotherapist and adjunct professor of psychology at CIIS, well known for his pioneering work in integrating non-dual wisdom and psychotherapy. He studied with the European sage Jean Klein for many years, as well as with Adyashanti, who gave him dharma transmission in August, 2023.

Lisa Schumacher ~ Choose Love

Tuesday, July 16, 2024 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

A meeting with Lisa is an opportunity to step away from your day to day life and devote time for self-inquiry into the heart of Love. There will be a few moments of silence to start the meeting and then Lisa will speak and invite the community to share reports about their realizations and ask questions.

In the early 90s, a friend invited Lisa Schumacher to a video satsang with Gangaji. Upon hearing Gangaji say "Be your Natural Self", Lisa's heart caught on fire and she fell into a deep bow of surrender. That meeting revealed to her the absolute simplicity of the natural, living truth of Love, inseparable from who one is. In 2006, Lisa was asked by Gangaji to meet with people and share Satsang.
