For thousands of years, most spiritual traditions have attempted to separate spirit and matter. The results have been denial, spiritual bypassing, and repression. The gaps between the ascending in spirit and the daily life as form do not reflect one another.
In this weekend retreat with spiritual teacher Sharon Landrith, we explore the microcosm of the interior of the body. The Silent Ground, the dynamic movement of light, and love arising and falling as thoughts and appearances are discovered within. The vast universal body of consciousness without is realized as the same, simply the microcosm of the whole. The division of within and without is dissolved. The focus in the body without boundary is the most accessible moment by moment awakening to our Shared Natural State.
Throughout the weekend we explore through direct experience, periods of silence, meditation, and guided transmissions.
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
