After what might now be regarded as nondual realizations as a child, Ku Will Pye experienced years of suffering, depression and a desire to not exist. A wish to end suffering mingled with a deep yearning to know Truth fueled intensive spiritual exploration. Much Zen practice, energy healing, shamanic exploration, yoga, Qi Gong, philosophical study and scientific research led to shifts in perception, including, at age 28, insight into the emptiness of self, and unity of inner and outer. At 31, total surrender to death following a brain cancer diagnosis yielded experience of infinite and eternal being and the perfection unfolding.

Since then Will has left behind a successful business to share presence and explore consciousness with groups in workshops, retreats and Meetings in Love, Truth and Laughter around the world.

Influenced by Zen, Christian Mysticism, Sufism, Quantum Mechanics and Neuroscience Will offers practical wisdom, emphasizing direct experience and revelation, whether via meditation, gratitude, plant spirit medicine, dancing, lovemaking, or listening to a tree dancing with the sun.

Working with groups, Will offers and invites innocence, curiosity and play, and holding several paradoxes. Teaching and learning occur, yet there is no teacher nor teaching. Gathering in exploration of consciousness, being, love, and stillness is unspeakably sacred, yet ─ it being what we already are ─ is a bit of a joke: bowing to impersonal presence, surrendering to the group energy field’s movement, yet appreciating the uniqueness of each individuation of consciousness and the particular shape of their unfolding. Simultaneously water, dewdrop and snowflake, we are already perfect and becoming more.

Join us to explore a way of being Will calls Radical Gratitude. Here every breath, pain, thought, identity and contraction are recognized to be God making Love with Itself as we realize the naturally joyful love of Being.

Will can also be found handing out Love Letters to strangers as part of a hopelessly idealistic global movement of love and awakening, an initiative of the Love and Truth Party: exploring what awakened activism might look like as we celebrate oneness. Will is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, Blessed with a Brain Tumor: Realizing it’s all Gift and Learning to Receive, and the forthcoming The Gratitude Miracle: How to Find Peace of Mind and Joy Wherever You Look, (2019 New Harbinger).

Susanne Marie ~ The Gift of Surrender

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 @ 7:00pm-8:45pm

Featured a while back in conversation with Adyashanti on Buddha at the Gas Pump, Susanne Marie offers teachings in support of freedom, sacred mutuality, and the celebration of our common essence of love and unity with all life. Her work is transformational and empowering, as she points to the remembering of That which we have always been, allowing truth to become ever more conscious of Itself through a human life.

In a relaxed, empathetic and personable manner, and with deep insight, humor, and grace, she helps others deconstruct their beliefs of what living a life of freedom looks like. Susanne, the parent of two teenagers, lives in Northern California, and offers spiritual mentoring to individuals and groups.

“There is a force within that knows how to live this life. Learning how to attune and open to what is intelligently guiding life is accessing the same power that is guiding the universe. Life in its intelligence knows what it is doing. When we open to what surrender really is, we leave the need to control behind and open to what the beauty of allowance and trust offers.”
