Unmani ~ Longing to Be Free ~ Online Retreat

Friday, June 24, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time) ~ Part of 3-part Retreat June 24, 25 & 26

For so many of us, we started out on this spiritual path with a deep longing to come home. Maybe you had a heart-felt longing that was impossible to conceptualize. This longing is beyond all the spiritual concepts or any other concepts. It is the longing to meet yourself right now, and no longer compromise or overlook this. In this three-part event we will go deeper into the exploration of our longing, and how this can open to the Freedom that we always are. How can we reconnect to our original longing beyond all concepts? And how can we live this longing and let it lead us to come home to who we really are? With guided meditations, talks and dialogues, we reconnect with our longing and wake up to the freedom that we are.

Meeting with Unmani is meeting with yourself in the most real and alive way. Unman, who is originally from the UK, has been holding meetings and retreats all over the world since 2003, and in this time people have been deeply touched by her work: She meets each person exactly where they are at, and in whatever they need at the time, while at the same time holding them in the truth of who they really are beyond it all.

Shakti Caterina Maggi ~ Sacred Heart: Embodying the Non-Dual Understanding

Saturday, July 16, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

From understanding to being, the passage of embodying awakening requires a deep integration into our everyday life of what has been revealed in our spiritual journey. Direct perception is the way through we directly connect to our non-dual nature, as all illusion of separation is purely conceptual. Shakti will guide participants to discover our true essence, the Sacred Heart, an inner space completely free from fear out of which we can transform our life.

Shakti is a spiritual guide, meditation teacher and author, widely recognized as one of the most authentic and profound voices of contemporary spirituality. Combining the vision of Advaita and non-dual Tantra with a contemporary approach, Shakti offers with humanity, compassion and great clarity an inner technology to access a space of peace and unconditional love towards life.

Paul Hedderman ~ Much Ado About Nothing!

Sunday, July 24, 2022 @ 2:00pm~4:00pm
Sebastopol, 8476 Sonoma Ave.
Sebastopol, CA,
+ Google Map

In colorful and direct language, Paul points to the many ways we reinforce what he calls “selfing”, urging his listeners to honestly consider the facts of their daily experience, and look beyond the pull of the past and future, and the self-reinforcing, self-importance of ego-identity. His direct, uncompromising pointing, colored with plenty of humor and laughter, doesn’t provide a refuge for entrenched conditioning and the sense of separateness, no matter how convincing that experience may be.

Paul Hedderman has been leading workshops and holding talks for almost 30 years. His unpretentious, humorous and energetic style of street-level non-duality is honed by his years of involvement with 12-step programs and the recovery community, as well as his background in Zen, Advaita and A Course in Miracles.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT ~ TRUE HEALING: Being Present with What Is ~ 3 Half-Days Retreat

Friday, September 9, 2022 @ 9:00am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time), Part of 3-part Retreat, Sept. 9, 10 & 11, 2022

True healing arises from being present with all our experience as it is. In this retreat we will bring together spiritual wisdom and somatic psychology to focus on both waking up to True Nature and resolving the human issues we struggle with such as depression, anxiety, low self-worth, and illness. These issues, along with the life problems they create, can interfere with our ability to rest as Being.

The Presence of our own Being is the only true healing force there is. As we awaken to/as Being and allow it to fully meet all our humanness as it is, we are healed and transformed from within, and directed to whoever or whatever is needed for our healing.
Lynn Marie Lumiere is a psychotherapist and author with a focus on bringing awakened consciousness to the healing of our human body-mind issues. Her work is grounded in nondual spiritual teachings and psychotherapeutic and somatic training.

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D ~ “Embodying Spirit” ~ 4-Part Course

Sunday, November 13, 2022 @ 10:00am - 12:00noon (Pacific Time), Part of 4-part Course, Sundays, Nov. 13, 20, 27 & Dec. 4

In this 4-part series we will take a fresh look at what the process of embodying spirit entails. In the first meeting we will explore the importance of spiritual embodiment, what the body is, the process by which the body becomes infused with the light of awareness, the role of conditioning, and the practice of welcoming the body from Presence. The three following meetings we will apply these insights to the most common areas of subtle somatic contraction as we embody spirit: the heart area (self love and acceptance), the solar plexus (control), and the base of the spine (survival). There will be guided meditations, talks, group meditative inquiries, and experiential conversations.

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., is the author of The Deep Heart and In Touch, a retired Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology at CIIS, and a retired psychotherapist. He studied for many years with the European sage, Jean Klein, as well as with Adyashanti, and offers online and in-person retreats.

Ellen Emmet ~ The Shrine of Not Knowing: 2-part Online Mini Retreat

Friday, November 25, 2022 @ 9:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time) - Part of 2-part Retreat: Nov. 25 & 26

We gather, invited to leave our convictions and spiritual beliefs at the door of our shared space.

Together we welcome our direct experience and let it gradually reveal its palpable yet un-nameable, source and reality.

We will not engage with the singularity of our psychology and history. However, in the immediacy of our inquiry, layers of resistance that keep us trapped in the cage of thinking will surface in the form of raw feelings, sensations, and emotions.

In this sacred process something is touched and shared, the openness is made palpable, the One source of all experience begins to flow through, and we partake in the mystery of our humanity and divinity.

Ellen’s deepest intuition was confirmed when she met her teacher in the non-dual tradition, Francis Lucille. Hearing his words, she recognised the eternal, limitless and universal nature of our shared reality. Over the years, this understanding has continued to unfold and to touch all levels of experience.
