Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT ~ SOMATIC AWAKENING: Transforming Core Beliefs

Saturday, August 8, 2020 @ 9:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time)

In this meeting, Lynn Marie offers a group process using the Flash Technique to reduce the charge on traumatic or painful memories and the grip of negative beliefs associated with them. This will then make it possible to truly transform these memories and beliefs held in the body-mind in awake awareness through a guided self-inquiry. There will be also plenty of time for group process and sharing as well as individual assistance if needed.

This is an ongoing group that you can join anytime. It is recommended that you attend live, if possible, since it involves a deep therapeutic process. This would allow you to ask questions and receive individual guidance if needed. However, you are also welcome to register and do the process with the recording. If questions arise, you are welcome to contact Lynn Marie with the email on her website, or contact your regular therapist.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT is a nondual psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and author. She offers knowledge and wisdom gained from over 30 years of experience as a therapist as well as with nondual teachings. She is the author of Awakened Relating: A Guide to Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships and The Awakening West: Evidence of a Spreading Enlightenment.

Pamela Wilson ~ Forest Wisdom from the Trees

Sunday, August 9, 2020 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time)

Any grove of trees roots and finds support for itself through linking underground with other members. They share nourishment and silent support, as we do when we gather together. Nourishment and renewal take many forms: rest, silence, and communing with like-hearted friends. What if such sustenance is the nutriment we need now: relaxing into the spacious strength that holds us; feeling held and cherished as Life and Pure Being? Then we return refreshed to support our families and community.

Pamela evokes through dialogue, inquiry and her very presence the qualities of unconditional love and radical acceptance. She is celebrated for her ability to open the heart and create a space in which long-cherished struggles and notions about one’s identity relax. Featured in the book Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Wisdom, Pamela is at her best in heart-felt dialogue, so please bring your questions!

Gail Brenner, Ph.D. ~ Bringing Heaven to Earth: Healing Trauma and Awakened Living – 6-Week Intensive Course

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 @ and Tuesdays, Aug. 25 & Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22 ~ 9:00am - 11:00am (Pacific Time)

6-week Intensive Course:
Tuesdays Aug. 18, 25 & Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22
9:00 – 11:00 am, Pacific Time
Event will be recorded and emailed to participants after each meeting.

You’re welcome to join even if you can’t attend all the live sessions.

Are you still taken over by conditioned patterns—even after all the work you’ve already done?  Do you long to heal your sense of separation from yourself and from the sacredness of all of Life?

We hear about freedom as a possibility—or we’ve had a taste of our true nature—but somehow conditioned patterns keep getting played out in our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our choices in life.

The truth of who we are is so incredibly close. But when we’re clouded by inner judgments and fixed ideas about ourselves, it seems like it’s a million miles away.
We’re hidden behind the veils of conditioning that seem so real.

Finally, we realize that we can’t go it alone. We need to practice together—in a supportive and loving community—to find our way home. And that’s what we create when we join together. You are welcome as you are—with your fears, doubts, shame, and questions.

This course offers just the deep dive you need to open to a fresh way of being, fully aligned with your natural essence as whole, peaceful, primed for joy, and lacking nothing. You’ll learn to untangle the limited ways you think about yourself and find your way home to the ever present space of inner aliveness.

We’ll meet weekly for 6 weeks for guided meditation, clarifying wisdom, small group sharing, and joyful celebration together. There will be plenty of time for Q&A with Gail. You’ll come away with the skills to feel grounded, safe, and connected within yourself and in your life. You’ll experience more space for intimacy, generosity, and simple joy.

You’ll receive exercises and reflections to enrich your experience between our meetings.

“Gail creates, embodies and models a very safe space which is helping to create safety in myself on a day to day level which is Huge.” ~H.F.

"It was pure delight (and relief) to find such a healing container in this sangha group. Gail's masterful facilitation and unhurried attention to our experience of coming together, shifting into direct experience, and powerful questions were grounding and illuminating.” ~Lisa L.

"I feel accepted, included, safe, loved and also, as importantly, I feel that my presence in the group can offer the same qualities to others.” ~Sue E.

Gail Brenner, Ph.D. is your guide. She is a psychologist, author, speaker, and lover of truth with a fire that burns brightly. She is an expert in healing from early trauma and brings to this work years of experience with individuals and groups. She is known for creating the safe space needed for inner exploration.

Jeannie Zandi ~ Sovereignty & Freedom

Sunday, August 23, 2020 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

What is meant by being here but not of here? What supports are available for us to develop a clarity-filled, heartful grounded way of navigating life's challenges? How do we unplug from the opinions of those around us and root deeply in our own sovereign clarity? How do we give our lives to our highest sense of truth no matter what? Join Jeannie and friends to explore this most basic aspect of the embodiment of freedom.

Jeannie’s gift for inviting people to join her in resting and rooted presence evokes a deep meeting with oneself and reality. Within that, Jeannie’s humor and iconoclasm serve to bring people into an understanding that is beyond the intellectual. Through silent and guided meditation, spontaneous talks and exchange with participants, Jeannie will host a space of clarity and warmth where the richness of relating can be explored safely and your innermost questions met fully. Come join us!

Jeannie is the director of Living as Love, a nonprofit organization dedicated to seeding a culture of the Heart on the planet, inspiring, teaching and supporting people to live from their essence as Love. A year before the birth of her daughter, Jeannie was plunged into a dark night of the soul that culminated in a radical shift of consciousness. She is known for her fearless clarity, tender mercy toward humanness, and a juicy, poetic and often humorous style that draws from Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Christian mysticism and the ongoing revelation of fully engaged living. Residing in Colorado, she travels widely in the US, bringing a down-to-earth embodied teaching of living as love.

Tilicho ~ Deep Dive into Awakening and Healing: 3rd Chakra – 4-Hour Workshop

Saturday, August 29, 2020 @ 9:00am - 1:00pm (Pacific Time)

During this series of workshops with Tilicho, we inquire about our Real Nature and bring awareness and healing to the traumas and mind patterns preventing us from really being ourselves: from opening to the present moment as it is.

This session focuses on the third chakra: Self-esteem and the expression of Personal potential

You are invited to dive deep within, and from a place of Self-recognition, let all causes of suffering emerge to the surface, in a safe atmosphere of love, compassion and understanding.

Thanks to the very interactive format of the meeting, you’ll be able to receive personal guidance and suggestions about your awakening and healing journey.
We meet from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, with a half an hour break.

This workshop is part of a monthly series, where we explore ourselves chakra by chakra. You are welcome to attend the whole series, or join individual workshops, even if you have not attended the previous ones.

Tilicho spontaneously realized the Self in 1998 without following any teaching or practice. The absence of spiritual conditioning allowed her to see through the veils of spiritual idealism and illusions. She ended up spending thirteen years in Tiruvannamalai in south India, the seat of Ramana Maharshi and the sacred mountain, Arunachala. While recognizing the beauty of the Advaita teachings, she also observed that they can easily be misunderstood and distorted. Although the Self is eternally free from the world, it is not separate from it. Clarity does not exclude openness. Her teaching stresses the need to combine Masculine and Feminine qualities and approaches. It is an invitation to find unity within and without.

Adam Chacksfield ~ Falling Open Together

Sunday, August 30, 2020 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

Join Adam for Falling Open Together and invite more intimacy with the deeper movement of life through us and between us.

“We are invited to receive the ultimate gift, for which there is no substitute , worth infinitely more than all our dreams and fantasies. We accept this gift by simply falling open. When the heart and mind fall open, we find ourselves intimately present and completely available to what is here. Our struggle with reality dissolves into harmony.”

Described by Pamela Wilson as “a great messenger of truth with a unique transmission that does wonderful things for my spirit,” Adam invites us to share the direct experience of the heart and mind falling open. In this effortless opening, the suffering involved in resisting feelings and believing our thoughts spontaneously releases. This allows our natural abundance of joy, peace, wisdom and love to become apparent and available. Heart-centered and direct, Adam offers a path straight into the truth of who you are. Adam Chacksfield offers retreats worldwide exploring the depths that reveal that reveal themselves as we become more intimate with our embodied experience and the vibrantly alive field of relating. He also offers private sessions online and in the San Francisco Bay Area.
