The word sovereign was originally understood to mean supreme ruler. Sovereign indicates that you reign and are responsible. You take your seat on your throne and are the empress or emperor of your world. Whether the realm is peaceful and prosperous or in chaos, you are still the one in charge. You cannot abdicate. If you try, things get worse.

In spirituality I have found that naturally we are thrown into owning our body-being. First we might make ourselves dependent or less-than a teacher or power. Sooner or later there must come a point where we realize, “This is my life that needs to be lived as ME and no-body else.” Ultimately each of us has to completely own our true nature, otherwise we will always feel dependent on something outside ourselves.

You are a sovereign being. You have always been a sovereign being. For some reason along the way we have forgotten or we lost track of it. We got diverted.

During this four-satsang-retreat over a period of two weeks the aim is to empower you to take ownership of your life.

It is important to be rooted in and as silence in our bodies and to allow pure action to come forth. When we rest as silence or source, sovereignty naturally becomes action. That will bring forth trust, coherence and connection.

These times strongly invite us to own our sovereignty and not engage in polarization, division or separation. We are trained from birth to exhaust our energy on the outer happenings. The whole thing is out of balance.
When we stand in our sovereignty we step out of the matrix of good and bad, up or down. We step into the unified field. Now we know how to move in this world.

During this retreat we will bathe ourselves in the deep silence and listen. We will practice trusting our nature and letting our felt sense of body-being take action. We are the action and we are the pure love that needs to live this life. Nobody will do it for us.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret 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. Marlies has been offering satsang and retreat since 2000 when Adyashanti asked her to teach. She lives in Santa Cruz, California and works internationally as a psychologist, Hakomi therapist and Tantric Educator.

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.”

John J. Prendergast, Ph.D ~ Finding Our Deepest Ground: 4-Part Course

Sunday, March 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am & 12:00 noon (Pacific Time), continuing Sundays March 14, 21 & 28

4-Part Online Course
March 7, 14, 21 & 28, 2021

10:00 am – 12:00 noon Pacific Time, each day
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.

General Description: When and how are we most deeply grounded? In this series we will experientially explore this vital question and discover its relevance to more fully embodying our spiritual understanding.

Most contemplative traditions, east or west, tend to focus on awakening the mind and heart. However, they often minimize or entirely ignore the belly (or hara) which includes our felt sense of the ground. As a result many long-term spiritual practitioners remain unfamiliar with this critically important domain and are subject to doubting their inner authority and being regularly hijacked by the deeply conditioned and unconscious fears embedded in this area.

In our shared journey, we will explore the different dimensions of the ground – egoic, soul/archetypal, and Self (no self) – and our resistance to more fully opening to the ground of Being. We will also learn how to welcome our resistance from Presence and to rest in and as our deepest Ground. This brings a profound sense of inner stability, self-trust, autonomy, and connection with a fundamental life current. It also provides a foundational safety for sustaining an open heart and clear mind.

Sunday, March 7th “The Multidimensional Ground: Ego, Soul, and Self (no self)”

Sunday, March 14th “Resistance to Opening to Our Deepest Ground”

Sunday, March 21st “Welcoming Resistance from Presence”

Sunday, March 28th “Resting in and as our Deepest Ground”

Bio: John J. Prendergast, Ph.D. is the author of The Deep Heart (2019) and In Touch (2015), a retired Adjunct Professor of Psychology at CIIS, a spiritual teacher, and a soon-to-retire psychotherapist, who offers online and in-person (when possible) retreats.
