Deepening Retreats

Spontaneously present, infinitely spacious, fundamental consciousness may be experienced as a sheer transparency pervading our whole body and environment. Authenticity refers to the extent to which we experience this unbound luminous consciousness as our true nature.

It is our birthright to be powerful, loving, sensuous, wise human beings – each with our own voice. As we shed constructed images and superficial layers of our being, we realize a shimmering field pulsating and vibrating throughout our body and beyond. Embodying this clear light can be as natural as breathing.

  • Nondual meditations awaken fundamental consciousness in our whole body.
  • Relational attunements dissolve fixed patterns of self and other.
  • Healing practices release chronic fragmentations in our own being, and between us and our environment.
  • Embodiment and movement exercises cultivate our capacities to feel vibrantly alive, substantive and secure, and at home in our own body.

Deepening Retreats are designed for certified Realization Process teachers and experienced RP meditators seeking to encompass the depth, intensity, and free flow of life with grace and ease. Sensitive to subtle aspects of energy and consciousness, I offer gentle, precise guidance, grounding, real-time tracking, and practical feedback.

    • releasing all mental concepts, including time and space
    • encompassing the depth, intensity, and free flow of emotions, cognitions, physical sensations, and perceptions, with grace and ease
  • Relating
    • recognizing and releasing chronic, unconscious constrictions within our own Being and between us and our environment
    • being grounded and rooted in mutually-nourishing relationships without being entangled or losing contact with yourself
    • embodying yourself as a powerful, loving, wise adult, with your own voice in the presence of others
