Adam Chacksfield ~ Falling Open

Sunday, March 26, 2017 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)

Inviting us to receive the ultimate gift, Adam shares the direct experience of the heart, mind, and life falling open. In this effortless opening, the suffering involved in resisting feelings and believing thoughts spontaneously releases. Our natural abundance of joy, peace, wisdom, and love becomes apparent and available. Heart-centered, gentle, and direct, Adam offers a path straight into the truth of who you are.

"Adam is a great messenger of truth. He has a very unique transmission that does wonderful things for my spirit—spa treatment.”Pamela Wilson, featured in Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Wisdom by Rita Marie Robinson

Adam delivers the essence of nondual awareness in an uncompromising form. He is whole-heartedly committed to creating new possibilities that are grounded in awareness and practical at the same time. I highly recommend him.” — Peter Fenner, Ph.D., author of Radiant Mind

Adam Chacksfield, Ph.D. is founder of the Center for Nondual Awareness and creator of “Falling Open”, a four-month online course transforming how participants experience their lives.

Ellen Emmet ~ The Awakening Body

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 @ 6:00pm-7:30pm (Pacific Time)
Ellen Emment_2017_smile_3

Time shown is Pacific Time (San Francisco, CA, USA) Time Zone Converter

In our daily lives, the body is seldom tasted as it is. We rarely listen to its language or allow it to simply unfold and blossom in its natural original intelligence and to discover its real essence.

In fact we have deeply disconnected from this level of experience. Even when we turn back towards the body, we come with agendas and ideas that we project upon it, forcing the body into yet another mode. This only perpetuates a felt identification with a body, that may seem improved, but in fact remains a mere projections for the separate limited self that seems to live in its center.

Using guided meditation, simple postures, free movements, breathing, and visualizations we will reestablish our true identity as ever-present and unlocated Awareness and reacquaint ourselves with our body directly, as free of concepts or images as possible. In this contemplation, resistances and chains of bodily contractions, the habits that create the illusion that our identity is limited, located and separate are revealed for what they are: feelings and sensations that rise and unfold in Awareness. We come to feel our true identity as an open field of tactile openness, limitless, vibrating and ever-present in which the body can rise out of and return to moment by moment.

Please sit comfortably on a chair or on a cushion in as comfortable and alert a position as possible with some space all around you.
There will be time for questions and sharing.

Ellen started to teach after studying for many years with her teacher Francis Lucille. She is also a licensed transpersonal psychotherapist with a background in movement, dance and somatic therapies.

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

Join Jeannie and friends for an exploration into the potent depth of what’s often overlooked in the moment: being. Jeannie’s gift for inviting people to join her in resting and rooted presence evokes a deep meeting with oneself and reality. Within that, Jeannie’s humor and iconoclasm serve to bring people into an understanding that is beyond the intellectual. Through silent and guided meditation, a spontaneous talk and exchange with participants, Jeannie will host a space of clarity and warmth where the true richness of life can be experienced, and your innermost spiritual questions can be met fully. Come join us!

Jeannie is the director of Living as Love, a nonprofit organization dedicated to seeding a culture of the Heart on the planet, inspiring, teaching and supporting people to live from their essence as Love. A year before the birth of her daughter, Jeannie was plunged into a dark night of the soul that culminated in a radical shift of consciousness. She is known for her fearless clarity, tender mercy toward humanness, and a juicy, poetic and often humorous style that draws from Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Christian mysticism and the ongoing revelation of fully engaged living. Residing in Colorado, she travels widely in the US and Canada, bringing a down-to-earth embodied teaching of living as love.

Susanne Marie ~ Embracing Our Dual Nature

Sunday, April 16, 2017 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)
Susanne Marie 200x300

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

It is a myth that spirituality will protect or save us from the difficult aspects of life or the pain of the world. Instead, realization reveals that all dualities arise and are expressions of wholeness, within which everything is reconciled in the presence of unconditional love.

Recently featured in conversation with Adyashanti on Buddha at the Gas Pump, Susanne Marie offers teachings in support of freedom, 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 Susanne’s words: “What freedom reveals is a vast cosmic body where all pain everywhere is felt, and where joy and peace are likewise known as One Self. You don’t get away from anything; you gain the whole of creation which contains all polarities and realities simultaneously.” Susanne lives in Northern California and offers spiritual mentoring to both individuals and groups.

“The more that “self” falls away, the more we sense an intimacy with existence, with one another, and with all that arises within us. We can thus meet life without defense, opening us up to a vast, nuanced, deeply felt, and rich tapestry of experience.”

Richard Miller ~ The Ultimate Cure: Awakening to Essential Nature through Welcoming Opposites

Sunday, May 7, 2017 @ 10am-12noon (Pacific Time)

10 am to 12 noon (Pacific Time - San Francisco, CA, USA)

Beliefs that have been programmed into us—through family, culture, genetics, and personal experiences—keep us bound to suffering, separation, isolation, and aloneness. Nourishing the felt-experience of nondual being, while welcoming opposites of core beliefs, fosters an inner environment that empowers us to heal core wounds that otherwise bind our attention, and enables us to glimpse our underlying Essential Nature—that which lies beyond all beliefs of suffering and separation.

Join Richard for an experiential exploration of research informed self-inquiries that take us beyond our core beliefs so that we can experience the ultimate cure that enables us to truly live the awakened and authentic life we were designed to be living.

Richard C. Miller, PhD, is a spiritual teacher, yogic scholar, clinical psychologist, and researcher who has devoted his life to integrating western psychology and neuroscience with the ancient wisdom teachings of Yoga, Advaita, Taoism, and Buddhism.
