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

In this 4-part series we will take a fresh look at what the process of embodying spirit entails. In the first meeting we will explore the importance of spiritual embodiment, what the body is, the process by which the body becomes infused with the light of awareness, the role of conditioning, and the practice of welcoming the body from Presence. The three following meetings we will apply these insights to the most common areas of subtle somatic contraction as we embody spirit: the heart area (self love and acceptance), the solar plexus (control), and the base of the spine (survival). There will be guided meditations, talks, group meditative inquiries, and experiential conversations.

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., is the author of The Deep Heart and In Touch, a retired Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology at CIIS, and a retired psychotherapist. He studied for many years with the European sage, Jean Klein, as well as with Adyashanti, and offers online and in-person retreats.

Pamela Wilson ~ Love and Resilience: Riding the Waves, Being the Warm Ocean ~ 3 Part Online Retreat

Friday, December 9, 2022 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time), part of a 3-Part Retreat, Dec. 9, 10 & 11

Dec. 9, 10 & 11

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.

Please join Pamela and friends in supportive Silence and Satsang.

We gather together to honor what is, compassionately being with inner and outer challenges, inviting beliefs, emotions and thoughts to know themselves also as presence, so the body can self-liberate from history and habit.

This return to naturalness is all-welcoming, and inclusive of the body-mind, and anything caught in discomfort. There is a potent relaxation when we function as the Heart, pervading that which contracted to serve, or from shock. Solace and serenity are revealed as the body sheds the unneeded, allowing natural joy to shine anew.

Pamela Wilson 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!
