Saturday, September 5, 2020 @ 9:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time)

In this meeting, Lynn Marie offers a group process using the Flash Technique, a therapeutic method designed to reduce the charge on traumatic or painful memories and the grip of negative beliefs associated with them.

There will be also be plenty of time for group process and sharing as well as individual assistance if needed.

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 at lumieremft@gmail.com, or contact your regular therapist.

Pamela Wilson ~ Power to the Peaceful

Sunday, September 6, 2020 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time)

Inner satsang uncontains and roots that which contracted to serve or protect. There is an energetic cost in maintaining conditioning, such an effort to contain and direct the flow of life and vastness! We all have noticed in relaxation everything unwinds and opens, allowing deeper breath, clarity, insights and rest. What may not have been noticed is that there is a transmission that spontaneously starts flowing from the heart and the body, and even from the eyes. Unseen but nevertheless powerful in its permeating presence.

Join Pamela and your fellow Sages! What a gift to share and celebrate!

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!

Marlies Myoku Cocheret ~ The Beauty of These Times

Sunday, September 13, 2020 @ 9:00am - 11:00am (Pacific Time)

Join Marlies and friends for two online satsangs. You are invited to get curious and discover how we can use these times for the good and the awakening to the love-virus instead of the fear-virus.
Gandhi spoke something beautiful: “The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but it is not hate, it is fear.”
Osho: "There is no virus in this world more dangerous than fear. Understand this fear, otherwise you will become a dead body before your body dies."

Fear clouds our minds and blocks true perception. But how can we work with this fear? We need to meet it and understand it. Then can we deeply know that the silence of being is the only true sanctuary. At that point, we relax completely and our actions are informed by the realized peace within. One truly sees the Beauty of these times and all times.

During satsang, Marlies guides us in meditation and gives a dharma talk. You are invited to share so please bring your experience, presence and questions.

This event will have two parts. You are welcome to attend either one or both:
Sunday Sept. 13, 9am - 11am, Pacific Time - register below
Friday Sept. 25, 10am -12noon, Pacific Time - register separate

The event will be recorded and emailed to participants after the meeting.

Marlies Myoku has devoted her life to the Beloved. She brings a potent invitation into the deep Silence that we are. The kindness of her gentle and direct teaching guides us home like a lighthouse. She helps people to see that freedom and peace lie not in escaping from difficulties, but rather in completely welcoming and receiving all that the Mystery presents.
She has been offering satsang and retreat since 2000 when Adyashanti asked her to teach. Marlies is trained as a psychologist in The Netherlands, a Hakomi therapist, and a Tantric educator. For over 25 years she has been ushering seekers into living the Divine in the body. She has a passion and a gift for bringing together the Sensual Body and the Silence of our Being.

She lives in Santa Cruz; California and works internationally. Marlies is interviewed in the book Awakened Relating. A Guide To Embodying Undivided love in Intimate Relationships by Lynn Marie Lumiere, and in the book Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Wisdom by R.M. Robinson

“With Adya, the bottom fell out. I deeply knew I am not this body, mind, thought, psyche, and I am also all these things as well. There was no in and/or out. All is One.”

Stephan Bodian ~ The Awakening Power of Relationship

Saturday, September 19, 2020 @ 9:00am-10:30am (Pacific Time)

Intimate relationships offer us the opportunity to awaken from the dream of separation and realize our essential oneness with all of life. At the same time, paradoxically, they stir up our deepest fears and reactive patterns and cause us untold suffering if we’re attached to our expectations and beliefs. In other words, relationships are a fertile ground for profound transformation.

In these times of social distancing, when intimacy with loved ones has become increasingly tenuous, we realize all the more how precious intimate relationships are to our emotional and spiritual well-being. In this satsang, we’ll explore the role of relationship as a sacred mirror that reveals our stuck places, core stories, and limited identities—as well as our genuine heartfelt devotion to truth—in order to free us to be more fully awake, authentic, and heartful with family, friends, and, in the most important relationship of all, ourselves.

This satsang will include guided meditation, teachings, and plenty of time for questions, dialogue, and discussion.

Stephan Bodian has been sharing the direct approach to spiritual awakening for more than 40 years. A former Buddhist monk, a licensed psychotherapist, and a longtime student of Advaita master Jean Klein, Stephan received Dharma transmission from Adyashanti in 2001. Since 2007 he has taught the annual months-long School for Awakening, which will begin again, in online form, in 2021. His books include Wake Up Now and Beyond Mindfulness.

Jeannie Zandi ~ The Unknown

Sunday, September 20, 2020 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

From the perspective of the conditioned mind, when we can't find soothing reference points from which to construct a reassuring mental model of the world, we feel fear. But it's fear of life itself! Because outside of the mind, life happens, and no mental model is necessary. Join Jeannie and friends for an exploration of living from the unknown and some of the challenges that rise as we give ourselves over to the river of life.

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.
