Georgia Simone ~ Awakened Healing: Meeting Personal and Collective Trauma ~ 3 Part Online Retreat

Friday, April 29, 2022 @ 9:30am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time), part of a 3-Part Retreat, April 29, 30 & May 1

April 29, 30 & May 1

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 tired of the endless oscillation between cosmic wonder and existential anxiety, between deep presence and painful disconnection, between meditative union and yelling at your loved one? Do you long for coherence? Do you long for a freedom that reaches into every corner of your life, into every relationship and every activity?

Likewise, have you been impacted by recent world events? Do you feel despair when you tune into collective issues or hopelessness about the way things are going? Do you want to stay informed but fear getting triggered? Do you long to contribute but don't know how to proceed?

In this 3 day immersion we'll begin by grounding into our Essential Nature, the place where all insight emerges, where all clarity dawns, and from where our deepest heart's longing can be nurtured into form. Then, we'll explore what's standing in the way of who we truly are and what we know is possible - both personally and collectively. This requires an intricate understanding of the karmic patterning - the unresolved trauma - that filters our experience and distorts our behaviours. Finally, we'll join in our shared presence to seed a new potential and infuse the field with our loving intent.

Awakened Healing is a presence based, body oriented, and relationally centered approach to addressing unresolved experience. Through gentle exploration and somatic awareness you can cultivate a new way of being with your most challenging patterns. No longer a victim of the push and pull of inner disturbance, you can step forward with greater confidence, knowing that whatever comes your way, you embody the resilience and the capacity to meet and integrate it.

You can expect a deeply held space where you’ll be invited to slow down, tune in, and track your present-moment experience. As you awaken and refine a more subtle way of Being and Being With, you can slowly but surely become the space – the container and the field – where healing takes place.

Day 1: The Ground of True Healing - your greatest resource 
You'll discover:

  • How to find inner peace and freedom, even before your issues start to shift
  • What keeps your process stuck and how to pull the plug on "endless healing"
  • How to cultivate an inner landscape where change emerges naturally
  • How to relate to inner disturbance in a way where it actually gets to move and shift

Day 2: Meeting Personal Trauma - mapping out the psyche
You'll discover:

  • A Living Map for navigating unresolved trauma with more ease, insight, depth and grace
  • How to tolerate strong emotions without losing yourself in overwhelm or shut down
  • The difference between core emotions and protective emotions and why it’s so important to know the difference
  • Why shame is the glue that holds trauma together and how to step outside of it

Day 3: Meeting Collective Unrest - extending your reach
You'll discover:

  • How to meet collective trauma without losing your centre
  • How to align with your unique contribution and be a part of the solution
  • How to impact the field with your deepest care and compassion
  • A Living Practice to awaken and amplify the spiritual heart - the true source of lasting change

Bio
The first leg of Georgia Simone’s path exposed her to the teachings of Advaita Vedanta, which provided her with the foundation she needed to disidentify from pain and suffering. However, despite a growing freedom, a significant bypass took place, as her orientation towards transcendence reinforced her deep disconnection from Life. Upon seeing this, her focus became addressing the unresolved trauma that had woven its way into every fibre of her being.

During this period, Georgia was influenced by Inner Relationship Focusing, a presence based approach that works with the Felt Sense and the split-off parts of self. She also trained as a NARM informed practitioner, which addresses developmental trauma from a psychotherapeutic perspective. Her approach is now a seamless blend of mystical insight and psychological understanding.

After many years of wading through this marshland of conditioning, she shares her discoveries with others. She believes that the spiritual path is as much about arriving here fully – as an embodied human being – as it is about dissolving into the infinite source that makes this life possible. How can we die to the absolute, while deeply embracing our relative human experience? This Living Inquiry is her Life’s prayer.

Jeannie Zandi ~ Motherhood and Awakening

Sunday, May 8, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

Jeannie’s reorientation from the personal to the transpersonal was inextricably woven into her motherhood. Join Jeannie on Mother’s Day to explore issues of motherhood and the spiritual path.

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.

Georgia Simone ~ Awakened Healing: Become The Space Where Healing Takes Place

Sunday, May 15, 2022 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

Welcome to The Holding Space.

A space where we can gather together and BE exactly as we are

A space where the full spectrum of your human experience is invited

Calm, anxious, open, closed,

ALL is welcome here.

It's in this gentle embrace that everything can start to unravel. It's in this open space that we can begin to unwind the strategies that no longer serve us. This is the space that early mis-attunement failed to foster, the space where love blooms and new life can emerge. This is the space where all that quivers and shakes can come to rest, and where all that contorts can untwist into greater alignment.

Through gentle exploration and somatic awareness you can cultivate a new way of being with your most challenging patterns. No longer a victim of the push and pull of inner disturbance, you can step forward with greater confidence, knowing that whatever comes your way, you embody the resilience and the capacity to meet and integrate it.

You can expect a deeply held space where you’ll be invited to slow down, tune in, and track your present-moment experience. As you awaken and refine a more subtle way of Being and Being With, you can slowly but surely become the space – the container and the field – where healing takes place.

Chesaray ~ Humanness: the Doorway to Our Evolution

Saturday, May 21, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

“Abiding awakening is embodied spirituality that meets the grit of life with clear seeing, strength, and wonder.“ ~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.
