Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT ~ SOMATIC AWAKENING: Body-Mind-Spirit Embodiment

Sunday, October 2, 2022 @ 9:00am-12:00pm (Pacific Time)

Online Monthly Group Meetings

Although our true nature is not affected by all that we experience in life, our human body and mind are impacted by experiences that result in emotional wounding and trauma. Any experience, especially early in life, that is outside our window of tolerance, can overwhelm our nervous system and create chronic stress patterns in the body/mind. These stuck patterns can affect our spiritual awakening process by making it more difficult to relax, trust, be in the moment, and allow everything to be as it is—all of which are necessary for awakening and embodiment.

This ongoing monthly group will offer deep support for body-mind-spirit healing and awakening so you can rest more deeply in the great peace, love and unity that resides in all of us.

The webinars will offer:

  • Guided meditations for embodied awakening
  • Somatic practices for regulating the nervous system
  • Flash Technique for releasing the charge on traumatic memories and negative beliefs
  • Group sharing and processing

It is encouraged to attend the live session so you can receive the support of the group as well as Lynn Marie’s therapeutic support if needed. You can also register and attend by listening to the recording on your own time.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT is a nondual psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and author. She offers knowledge and wisdom gained from over 30 years of experience both as a therapist and with nondual spiritual teachings. She is the author of Awakened Relating:
A Guide to Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships 
and The Awakening West: Evidence of a Spreading Enlightenment.

Stephan Bodian ~ Heart Wisdom in Challenging Times

Saturday, October 8, 2022 @ 9:00am-10:30am (Pacific Time)

“All you need to do is find out your source and take up your headquarters there.”
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

This is a simple and elegant prescription for an awakened life from one of the great sages of the nondual tradition. But of course it’s trickier and more elusive than it might sound at first read. How do we realize our source, our natural state of inherent wakefulness? And once we do, how do we establish our headquarters there?

This is part of a two-part series of online meetings, in which you will be guided to ground yourself in your deepest inner knowing, the source of all genuine wisdom and compassion, and respond to life’s inevitable challenges from this awakened perspective. Sat sang (“being together in truth”) features guided meditations, pointers and teachings, and ample time for dialogue and discussion. I invite you to join me and look forward to seeing you there.

The other date in this two-part series is Nov. 12th (click for info & registration).
See Register button below for Oct. 8th.
You are welcome to attend either one, or both meetings of this series.

Stephan Bodian is a teacher in the nondual wisdom tradition of Zen, Dzogchen, and Advaita and the founder and director of the annual School for Awakening, an intensive six-month program of exploration and study. Trained as a Buddhist monk for a decade, he studied Advaita for many years with Jean Klein and received Dharma transmission from Adyashanti in 2001. His books include Wake Up Now; Beyond Mindfulness; Meditation for Dummies; and Buddhism for Dummies (with Jon Landaw).

Meg Archambault ~ The Heart of Soul Work: Exploring Your Own Essence Expression (For Women Only)

Sunday, October 9, 2022 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

Women are longing to find their Soul’s Work and fulfill their ‘Cosmic Calling.’ Contributing from their heart their very own Essence Expression.

The challenge is, the paths of the past are outdated for this Time Frame. Structure is falling away. There is no “one right way.” Guides and Mentors may share what has worked for them, but the vibration of NOW requires a finely tuned listening ear to follow One’s Own Path. One’s Own Way.

In this 2-hour SoulWork Session, get to know Your Unique Way. Explore your relationship with your Dharma. Step back from ideals of others. Feed yourself a generous dose of Loving What Is and dive fully into embracing Your Way. Your see, it is our resistance to our own naturalness that keeps us stuck in a dead-end maze. Starting and stopping. Second guessing. Going nowhere.

When we welcome our eccentricities (challenges and faults) as our unique configuration, we release pressure and begin to realize Flow. Less struggle. More ease.

This is the work we will do on October 9th. Through stories, dialogue, and guided meditation, Meg will generate a field of loving-kindness and hold a space for you to gently explore:

- Your relationship with your Soul’s Work

- Your patterns and tendencies to push, pull, and struggle

- Your unique configuration and possible ways forward

This is not a fix for the resistance that shows up when facing your Soul’s Work, but rather a deep dive to embrace the root of that resistance and Love It Fully. Back into its natural state of Grace. Allowing you to remember more of Who You Are and Why You Came here at this time.

Please join Meg for this deep dive into the heart of Soul Work.

Meg Archambault is a gifted SoulWorker, generating a field of reverence and unconditional love for the women who sit with her. She combines a heart-centered and fully-embodied Presence with an absolute love for and respect for Whatever Is Arising in the moment.

This gives client’s bodies and nervous systems space to relax and truly feel what is happening in them and around them. Through this Alchemical-Love, outdated habitual patterns of survival begin to unwind and reveal the True Nature of what has been hidden all along: the natural, unadorned, and supremely simple Essence.

This is what women long for in their bones. Being at home in their bodies. Remembering who they are and why they are here at this very important time.

Meg is a natural born facilitator of this very personal and private process. She is most at home, herself, when working with women in this Way.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret ~ Almost Halloween Gathering

Friday, October 28, 2022 @ 8:00am - 9:30am (Pacific Time)

Dear Friend,
You are invited to join Marlies and friends for the ‘‘Almost Halloween’ gathering.

We enter the time of the year where the veil between our world and the so-called other world is very thin. Can you feel it in the air and inside your bones? It's an opportunity to open your heart wide and melt into the intimacy with all that is.

We are in the midst of autumn, letting go of all that we no longer need, just as the trees let go of their leaves. The sap is going inward. What sprang into form dissolves back into the soil. Then, the truth stands out in stark simplicity.

We are part of nature and nature supports us as all of life goes through this autumnal process.
Together we enter silence, join in Dharma talk and conversation. Please bring all of you, your experience, beautiful presence and questions.

I am looking forward to being in the company of you, love and truth, and dissolve into the unveiled field.

The event will be recorded and emailed to participants after the meeting.

Marlies Myoku Cocheret de la Morinière 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.”

What is meant by “embodiment” and how does it happen? Join Jeannie to explore a path to embodying realization in every corner of your life.

Jeannie Zandi ~ Impersonal Love
