Rest in Being
Like the silent depth of the ocean beneath turbulent waves, our essential nature – Being – is silent, no matter how busy our mind or circumstances. In this meeting, the focus is on letting go of mind, opening to Being, and resting together in that embodied experience.
Opening to Impermanence: The Desire to Feel Safe
The existential grip of the fear of death lies at the root of our sense of personal identity and impels us to resist change. Loosening this grip results in joy, ease, and open-heartedness.

Resting in the unknown enlivens an Intelligence beyond mind which then guides and motivates our lives.
Maintaining Inner Harmony in the Face of Life’s Challenges
In these challenges times, it is easy to lose one’s center and thus feel out of balance within oneself. Learning how to maintain inner equilibrium requires opening up to what we are feeling, while remembering the root of our being, from whence we come and to which we are all returning.
Embracing Life Fully
You are That now! Each one of us, just as we are, is an expression of life’s intelligence. We are the Totality expressed. Evolution is an aspect of this Oneness. Always Being, always becoming.
Going to the Root: An Online Meeting
Your body, feelings, and thinking all occur within the undefined space that you are. Mental habit has developed a “grip” to orient itself as a localized focal point within the vastness that we are. By realizing what is ‘prior to’ manifestation, we can loosen that grip and discover that we are, in fact, the unmanifested birthing itself as the manifested. We discover that both are true at once: we are the formless as well as form, one indivisible whole.
It is important to realize that true maturation of spirituality must include the willingness to see and embrace our unconscious shadow, both our own and the collective. Just as a ship listing to port will go in circles, so will our own evolution unless we open ourselves up to include all aspects of life. If you look around you will see that the world is comprised of light and dark, good and evil, emptiness and form, honesty and denial. If all is infinite intelligence, then all aspects of life are That.
Learning How to Welcome All that is Arising
We are conscious beings becoming ever more awake to our true nature as Totality. The more we recognize that we are, in fact, pure consciousness, regardless of what is arising, the more we can experience all aspects of ourselves without getting lost, identified, or overshadowed. This includes feelings, sensations, and our lives as they unfold.
