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.

The Embodied Awakening Intensive offers a deep dive into the practicalities of awakened living. Your everyday human life will be the laboratory as we explore the myth of the separate self and how to live the deepest nondual teachings of infinite oneness. Together, we'll create a safe and supportive community of pure intention for peace and freedom.

Throughout our four sessions together, you'll practice staying deeply grounded in your present moment experience. From this grounded awareness, you'll learn to meet your programmed patterns—the inner critic, long-standing shame, feelings of fear and insecurity—with intelligence and loving acceptance. This is how you begin to shed the feeling of separation so you are free to be fully alive in your life as it is right now.

How do you handle a frustrating encounter with someone? How do you navigate your relationships? What about money, sexuality, work, and purpose? What do you do with feeling disappointed or hurt or bored? What about needs, desires, and stressful times? We'll carefully shed the light of awareness on your personal attachments, bringing a loving perspective and clarity to these common life situations.

We'll also use specific practices and experiments in our sessions and between sessions to study the living reality of non-separation. You'll get the felt direct experience of being in life open, without defenses, and free of the mind's need to control. This is the foundation you need for openhearted awakened living.

Come prepared to move out of your comfort zone in all areas of your life. You'll discover the brilliance of embodying love, life, and deep connection with all...available in every moment.

A free information session with Gail is offered on Saturday, April 10 from 9:00 -10:00 am Pacific. You'll learn more about the course, and there will be time for Q&A. Please click here for details and to join the session.

If you have further questions, you are welcome to email Gail directly at gail@gailbrenner.com.

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.

Shakti Caterina Maggi ~ Being Truth: A Practical Guide to Embodying Non-Duality in Everyday Life ~ A 5-Part Course

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 noon (Pacific Time), continuing Tuesdays May 4, 11, 18 & 25

A 5-Part Online Course
Tuesdays, April 27, May 4, 11, 18 & 25th, 2021

Time Zone Converter
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.

Knowing truth is not enough to embody it. This webinar will guide the participants to actualize the recognition of our true nature as One Consciousness in the everyday life experience, and to overcome its challenges as reflections of the sense of separation. The weekly meetings will be both theoretical and experiential, with meditation or practices to follow every day, and to accompany the process.

1st Meeting: Recognizing Truth
The realization of Awareness as the fundamental cause of life is the starting point of any real spiritual process. Perception exercises and meditation will guide participants to glimpse their own true nature.

2nd Meeting: Fear or Joy?
The ego is the recurring contraction appearing in awareness. The participant will be guided to discover the constant trade we make between fear and joy, and how this can become the determinant factor of a deep alchemical transformation of our life.

3rd Meeting: The other is the You that You Haven’t Met Yet
The world will reflect the parts of the ego we are not yet conscious of. Theoretical discussion and experiential meditation will guide the participant to use the reflection of the world as an opportunity for clarity and openness to love.

4th Meeting: Being YourSelf
The individual expression blossoms once Awareness can express itself free from the hindrance of the false personality. Unclothing the ego allows a new energy to embody in life.

5th Meeting: An Imperfect Journey towards Perfection
Our spiritual journey is a never-ending process of love and devotion towards truth. As we become more conscious of the beauty of living, we discover that our apparent imperfections are the precious jewels through which we can recognize deeper and deeper who we are.

Shakti Caterina Maggi has been sharing a message of awakening to our true nature as One Consciousness since 2003. Her approach to Self-Realization is very contemporary and accessible, while profoundly in tune with Advaita and the non-dual Tantric traditions. She reveals the real possibility of seeing what we truly are, and embodying it in our everyday lives with clarity, wisdom, and humor.

She was asked to contribute to the anthology On the Mystery of Being: Contemporary Insights into the Convergence of Science and Spirituality edited by Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo, the founders of the Science and Non-Duality (SAND) Conference. She teaches in Europe, Canada and the USA, offering satsang, seminars and retreats.
