Workshop

The Way of Grace

Freedom Through Ego Relaxation

Aug 11 - Aug 16 2019 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking registrations for this workshop.

End your struggle of living in fear and separation through the practice of ego relaxation with Miranda Macpherson.

Even if we have tasted moments of freedom, many of us struggle to live each day truly aligned with our spiritual beliefs. The Way of Grace is an invitation to authentic spiritual surrender and nondual realization based on the practice of ego relaxation—learning to relax the consciousness of fear and control, so you can truly be present and undefended with what is.

Living with grace is a saner, wiser, more spiritually elegant way of being in the world. The Way of Grace reconnects you to the living presence that you are, bringing boundless love, clarity, peace, joy, and freedom. Through discussions, inquiry, devotion, and meditation, you support the unwinding of your ego fixations, freeing you to be a more potent embodiment of love and peace in our troubled world.

You return home with insights and practices you need to move beyond fear and judgment, so you can cultivate patience, humility, and trust, and become the embodiment of grace in your life.
