The journey of opening to the suffering of others begins with ourselves. Compassion blossoms with the realization that we are the one responsible for allowing our own hearts to open, and that turning towards our pain rather than away is the key. Once we have the strength to embrace ourselves as we are, then this ability naturally turns outwards to include the pain of others in our world.
Without the engagement of our hearts our spiritual and life journey is dry and barren. Devotion is the ability to reach outside of ourselves with trust that something greater exists than what we ourselves know or understand. This something is the mystery of existence itself. It is divinty inherent within all things. When we lean into trust that there is a greater intelligence guiding our lives, we are able to let go of our limited selves and hand over our need to maintain control and open in surrender.
Beyond descriptions of enlightenment or realization lies the lived experience of what we are in truth, right now. And right Now there is the immediate accessibility to be present, open, and aware. Together we will explore what is the direct experience of being awake: Here and Now.

Our surivival as a species requires us to make a leap from fear to love. Making things that are ignorant within ourselves, conscious, is an act of love and courage, and is the greatest transformative unifying power on Earth.

A candid conversation with Gabor Harsanyi and Nurit Oren and their guests – Susanne Marie and Pierre Richard – about the various pitfalls and misconceptions surrounding awakening. They clarify what awakening really is, as opposed to what we imagine or expect it to be, and expound on the peace that is naturally ours when we open to what IS and apply simplicity.
A new interview with Renate McNay and Susanne Marie Filmed in London September 2018. In this interview, Susanne maps out her spiritual unfolding with three distinctly different types of realizations. First the mind woke up to itself (awareness becoming aware of itself), then the heart opened (unity consciousness), and finally the body released itself of identity.
An opening talk with Susanne Marie, with Hungarian translation. Take the time to let the words sink while the translation is taking place. The space allows for the simple truth and silence behind the words to enter.
Dropping everything we think we know, we enter into purely experiencing that which is in praise of itself. Taken from a Seattle weekend intensive.
