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.

This retreat offers an opportunity to take time out of daily routines to focus together into the Being we all share and find healing and balance within our human body-mind.

True healing requires an awakening of body, mind and Being. 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 retreat will offer:

  • Deepened recognition of our True Nature through guided meditations and sharing truth
  • Somatic practices to help regulate the nervous system and build resilience
  • Psychotherapeutic processes for resolving the blocks to our full expression
  • Sharing and dialogue in the group
  • Practices to do between meetings on retreat days

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. We are also directed to whoever or whatever is needed for our healing.

You are invited to join the retreat sessions live to benefit from group interaction and processing with Lynn Marie.  You are also welcomed to register and attend the retreat by recording on your own time.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT 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. Lynn Marie is a contributing author for the Sacred Mirror: Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy, co-author of The Awakening West, and is the author of Awakened Relating: A Guide to Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships.

Boyan Milouchev ~ Embodied Spirituality: Trusting Guidance

Saturday, June 4, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

All of us are looking to find our innate Peace and experience our True Self, but also - and most importantly - to maintain this Peace throughout our day-to-day lives. Embodied spirituality is the understanding that this Presence is constant and changeless, and results in the full embracing of what is unfolding, moment-by-moment.

As part of this process of embodiment, many spiritual traditions suggest letting go of planning and to-do lists, tuning into intuition to receive answers and guidance, or even surrendering our decision-making process to a "Higher Will" that knows us perfectly.

During this event, we will explore:

  • What is Guidance and how it can help you release obstacles to Presence
  • Making decisions through Divination
  • The true meaning behind "the last step is taken by God"
  • The nature of reality, processing, and everything always unfolding perfectly
  • Living your unique purpose

The event is for you if you are ready to surrender on an ever-deeper level and see where Life takes you. It will begin with a 20-minute meditation followed by a talk and a Q&A session.

Bio:
From an early age, Boyan was fascinated by the nature of the mind and our experience of reality. After exploring NLP, the Three Principles, and A Course in Miracles, his journey of seeking came to an end when he came across non-duality. Today, Boyan supports others along the spiritual journey through one-to-one sessions and online events and programmes. He lovingly guides individuals and groups toward the understanding of the essential cause of their suffering, and to realise their innate wholeness. His approach is gentle but direct and especially well-suited for those who are ready to embrace life and live it fully.

Jeannie Zandi ~ Self Love

Sunday, June 5, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

From every corner of the self growth movement we are encouraged to love ourselves, and that to love others we have to love ourselves first. Who loves who? Join Jeannie for an exploration of what self love is and how to turn toward it.

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.

Jeannie Zandi 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.

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

Are you passionate about embodying awakened consciousness in everyday life? Then let’s explore our relationships. Your everyday human life will be the laboratory as we explore how to live the deepest nondual teachings of infinite oneness.

In this sacred time of retreat together, we create a field of safe space to explore the patterns we bring to our relationships that create a sense of separation—from ourselves, others, and all of life. These are fear-based programmed ways of being that we learned early in our lives and left us feeling unsafe, rejected, unseen, or disconnected.

People-pleasing, withdrawal, inflating or deflating ourselves in comparison to others, holding grudges, and defensiveness… These are signs of unexamined contractions that are waiting for liberation.

Untying the knots that lie at the core of our relationship struggles brings freshness, ease, and space for new and authentic ways of being. We discover we can meet the tender places in ourselves with deep acceptance and care and have space to open to intimate connection beyond our personal selves.

With guided inner reflection, journaling exercises, small group practice, and Q&A, we’ll practice creating safe space for deep connection. We’ll explore practical ways to be more present in our interactions. You’ll leave with new insights, ways to experiment in daily life, and tools for being in your relationships as a pathway for awakening.

Day 1: Our relationship with our own experience. We’ll begin by exploring how we disconnect from our selves and practice bringing loving awareness to all of our experience.
Day 2: Our relationships with others. We’ll identify patterns of relating that develop from our early experience and practice staying grounded in ourselves so we can find space to stay present in our interactions.
Day 3: Practical tools and skills. We’ll explore and practice new ways of relating so you can show up in your relationships more authentic and loving.

Please feel free to contact Gail with any questions about the program at gail@gailbrenner.com.

“I am now experiencing longer moments of pure awareness and joy. No longer a slave to external circumstances and inner chatter. Loving life the way it is.” ~Susan R.

“What you’re pointing to is so difficult to talk about in words, but you describe it so brilliantly and give such practical, actionable steps to follow that I truly, deeply get it. I just cannot express to you how transformative your approach has been for me.” ~Sandra Joseph, Broadway star and author of Unmasking What Matters

Gail Brenner, Ph.D. is your guide on this journey. She is a clinical psychologist and lover of truth with a fire that burns brightly. She brings to this work years of experience with individuals and groups and is known for creating the sense of safety and trust needed for this deeper exploration. She is the author of The End of Self-Help and Suffering Is Optional.

Chesaray ~ Loves Grit and Grace: Embodying Love within our Humanity

Sunday, June 12, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

"Loves transmission is infinite and unconditional. Love can fill every feeling of lack and pain we perceive. Our purpose is to discover, and embody this love... to let it live us." ~Chesaray

This two hour meeting is an invitation into the experiential understanding of the Divine. Our time together will be a still or moving meditation, a talk and exchanges. This work aims to foster ones capacity to be on the edge of growth and aliveness. These palpable guided meditations and exchanges enrich ones receptivity to Grace, encourage deep somatic inquiry, and support awakening in all directions.

Chesaray’s search for “What is Real?” began as early as she can remember. After losing several significant loved ones in her teens she was driven into a deep contemplation of grief, God, and death. This drew her interest to travel and live in India where she studied with several masters. Upon returning she began to immerse herself with other master teachers from the west. This opened a series of profound awakenings which set her in the direction of devoting her life to Self-Realization. After years of development, a plunge into a dark night of the soul and two brain injuries, Chesaray was stripped of her common sense of self and the world. As a result her initially unbearable descent turned inside out and became a bow to Life, an unconditional love for the grit and joys of living. It is this Love that guides her heart and mind as she serves the awakening of humanity.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT ~ SOMATIC AWAKENING: Body-Mind-Spirit Embodiment

Sunday, June 19, 2022 @ 9:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time)

Online Monthly Group Meetings

Although our true nature is not affected by all that we experience, our human body and mind are impacted by experiences that result in emotional wounding and trauma. Any experience, especially early in life, that is outside our window of tolerance, can overwhelm our nervous system and create chronic stress patterns in the body/mind. These stuck patterns can affect our spiritual awakening process by making it more difficult to relax, trust, be in the moment, and allow everything to be as it is—all of which are necessary for awakening and embodiment.

This ongoing monthly group will offer deep support for body-mind-spirit embodied awakening and healing so you can rest more deeply in the great peace, love and unity that resides in all of us.

We will do somatic practices for balancing the nervous system and building more capacity for regulating stress and emotions. Being more regulated is very important to both healing our human wounding and our spiritual awakening. We will also use the Flash Technique to release the charge on traumatic memories and loosen the grip of the negative beliefs that they create.

It is encouraged to attend the live session so you can receive the support of the group as well as Lynn Marie’s therapeutic support if needed. You are also welcome to register and attend by listening to the recording.

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 both as a therapist and with nondual spiritual 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.
