Atreya Thomas ~ Awakening into a Complete Human Being

Sunday, April 22, 2018 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Worldwide Web Event, Online Video Meeting - (phone access also available)

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

“When we awaken the ego does die, but it is not what many think. The caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, dies to its old form and can never go back to being a caterpillar. Yet, if you look closely, the main body of it still retains its caterpillar form. As we empty our minds and turn towards the Absolute in loving devotion, we become filled with Divine Grace that takes the form of insight which is very personal, and energizing. If we remain with this energy for a bit and not give into the impulse to give it away or share, we develop a secret relationship with the Self. This relationship then gives birth to even deeper truths as we stand completely alone. It is this secret devotional relationship with truth that brings down the final Grace that completes a human being and awakens the heart.”

Atreya Thomas, author of Revealing the Absolute, Awakening into a Complete Human Being; and Revealing the Christ, is an extra-ordinary teacher who grew up in the inner cities of New Jersey; and writes as he speaks. Having cut his own path from outside any particular “school,” he speaks from experience free of dogma, and the results are fresh and enlivening; while bringing a unique urban style. His own life combines the duties of householder, devotee, and teacher in a lifestyle that focuses on being awake in the midst of ordinary life.

Atreya Thomas is a father of five children whom were all adopted through foster care. He continues to foster drug exposed newborns with his wife in California and works closely with underprivileged communities. Atreya holds Satsangs where invited, works as a preschool teacher, studied Medicinal Qigong for 20 years, and holds a degree in Psychology.

Neelam ~ From Desire for Truth to Awakening and Freedom

Sunday, May 6, 2018 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Worldwide Tele-satsang, Meetings by phone or internet access (audio only)

Live Worldwide Tele-satsang
From Desire for Truth to Awakening and Freedom - Capacity of the Nervous System to Be Here.

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA) Time Zone Converter

The capacity of the nervous system to Be Here is an essential element for Awakening, Embodiment, and for Freedom.

In our search for Truth the workings of the nervous system often remain hidden and we don't always fully understand or know experientially what capacity is and what Being Here really means or is.

When unmet, unexperienced tendencies of the Past arise - and we so often believe it or identify ourselves with that - that shows up as thoughts and as feelings, emotions and sensations and it affects and manifests in our physiology.

If there is no awareness of that and no capacity to Be Here our nervous system reacts and moves into fight/ flight /freeze or overwhelm and we end up re-enacting or suppressing and so perpetuating the Past.

The capacity of our nervous system to Be Here and experience the arising past is often the missing link between our desire for Truth and Freedom and our ability to independently experience Presence and Self-Inquiry, which is what takes us directly into Awakening, Embodiment and Freedom.

Neelam is a direct disciple of HWL Poonja (affectionately known as Papaji), whose own teacher was Ramana Maharishi. Neelam’s unequivocal commitment to Truth helps us turn inward and release underlying patterns of conditioning which block the recognition of our True Nature. With the utmost tenderness, she invites us into the same recognition of Truth that her teacher, Papaji, transmitted to her, while helping us to address all aspects of daily living, including past conditioning and trauma.

Awakening is a shift from identifying yourself as this body to knowing yourself as Presence. Freedom means a true independence from the past, where our ability to Be Here and the action in the moment are not guided by our attachment to the arising past. To truly be Free we need to embody our recognition of Presence, and that requires growing of the capacity of our nervous system to Be Here. It is in the meeting of what arises that we find true and lasting freedom.”

Susanne Marie ~ Remembering Wholeness

Sunday, May 27, 2018 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Worldwide Web Event, Online Video Meeting - (phone access also available)

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

"Be the yearning​ ​that turns back to look at itself, as it is your very own self calling you home. Seeking is a drive from source to unite itself back with its intrinsic wholeness. It ​longs​ ​for​something that it put outside of itself, innocently, when we were very young. So, essentially seeking is propelled by the memory of wholeness. What does it long to make whole? It’s imagined lost part. We long for something already inherently known.​ ​Follow the longing back to its root​. ​Your own searching is a self-created journey as you remember your way Home.​"

Featured last year in conversation with Adyashanti on Buddha at the Gas Pump, Susanne Marie offers teachings in support of freedom, sacred mutuality, and the celebration of our common essence of love and unity with all life. Her work is transformational and empowering, as she points to the remembering of That which we have always been, allowing truth to become ever more conscious of Itself through a human life. In a relaxed, empathetic and personable manner, and with deep personal insight, humor, and grace, she helps others deconstruct their beliefs of what living a life of freedom looks like. Susanne, the parent of two teenagers, divides her time between Taos, New Mexico and Northern California, and offers spiritual mentoring to individuals and groups.
