Dissolve the division of within and without in this exploration of emptiness and form with spiritual teacher Sharon Landrith.

Sharon Landrith describes how the truth of being wants to reveal itself within the sangha.

For thousands of years, most spiritual traditions have attempted to separate spirit and matter. Yet, the primary teaching of the heart sutra points to emptiness and form as one indivisible whole.

Form as emptiness, emptiness as form.

Through silent meditation, inquiry, and question-and-answer sessions with spiritual teacher Sharon Landrith, we explore what each moment reveals from the Ground of Being. The awake radiance brings forth the overlay of past conditioning to be made conscious. The images from the past are spontaneously dissolved.

In deep seeing, we have a direct experience that the interior within the true body and the vast being of the outer, the everything, are simply the whole. All is included.

In silence we directly explore from the Ground what is constant and what is always changing; keeping our seat in what is true and embracing what is coming and going as an appearance.

We ask everyone to prepare their computers and cellphones for no use during the retreat. ​

The following books are required reading for the course:

  • A Mind at Home with Itself: How Asking Four Questions Can Free Your Mind, Open Your Heart, and Turn Your World Around by Byron Katie
  • The Most Important Thing: Discovering Truth at the Heart of Life by Adyashanti
  • The Practice of Pure Awareness: Somatic Meditation for Awakening the Sacred by Reginald A. Ray

Additionally, the Faculty recommends you read the following books and listen to the following recording in preparation for the course:

  • Emptiness Dancing by Adyashanti The Way of Liberation: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Adyashanti
  • A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are by Byron Katie
  • Listen to Faculty’s Satsangs and Guided Meditations at sharon-landrith.com/audios
