Topic: Remembering Wholeness

Be the yearning that turns back to look at itself, as it is your very own self calling you home. Seeking is a drive from source to unite itself back with its intrinsic wholeness. It longs​ for something that it put outside of itself, innocently, when we were very young. So, essentially seeking is propelled by the memory of wholeness. What does it long to make whole? It’s imagined lost part. We long for something already inherently known. Follow the longing back to its root. Your own searching is a self-created journey as you remember your way Home.​

Topic: The Body’s Natural Intelligence

“There is in the body a current of energy, affection and intelligence, which guides, maintains and energizes the body.
Discover that current and stay with it.”
— Nisargadatta Maharaj

The body is intelligence itself and if we learn to tune in and listen, we can discover our own innate internal guidance system. Everything that we need for our own liberation is contained within.

I am offering drop-in online monthly meetings via zoom.

Time: 10:00 am-12:00 PST (please check your time difference)
Each meeting will start with a talk on a different topic, followed by time to inquire together.

Here is the link to the Online Meetings:

Zoom is free and easy to use. You will need to have zoom already installed to join the meeting. This VIDEO will help you learn how to use zoom. 

In each meeting I will open with a talk on a particular topic, and then we’ll have time to discuss together.
