Realization Process Workshop

Saturday, December 7, 2019
10 am – 4:30 pm
Los Altos Hills, CA

Fee $225

This one-day workshop focuses on the foundational Realization Process meditation practices for awakening into a fully embodied life. Sitting, standing and walking meditations attune you to a fundamental, unified consciousness permeating your whole body and the environment. Absorption and subtle breath and energy practices open the subtle core of the body, your entranceway into self-other oneness. Core-to-core attunements with partners deepen your connection with others through deepening contact with yourself. Refining and unifying the senses allow you to stabilize in your nondual realization. Designed for both beginning and experienced Realization Process meditators, this workshop focuses on practices that cultivate wholeness, depth/openness, subtlety, luminosity and steadiness.

Authentic Relationship Workshop

Saturday January 18, 2020
10 am – 4:30 pm Pacific time
Los Altos Hills, CA

Fee $225

This one-day workshop explores how to relate authentically – how to experience oneness with others – without losing contact with yourself. The self that distances from others is just a shadow of our true self. The connection we make by merging is just a fraction of our capacity for intimacy. When we attune to fundamental consciousness together, we can experience a mutual transparency – a single expanse of consciousness pervading us as a unity. We also can experience resonant connection between the essential qualities of our being, such as intelligence, love, and physical sensation. We are able to see and touch each other on a subtle level, beyond the surface of the body to the being within. Designed for both beginning and experienced Realization Process meditators, this workshop focuses on practices that dissolve obstacles to intimacy through finding our true boundaries. Come alone, with an intimate partner, or with a friend.

Awaken Your Whole Being in Nature Retreat

Saturday-Sunday May 2-3, 2020
10 am – 4:30 pm Pacific time
Los Altos Hills, CA

Fee $450

This week-end retreat provides the ideal setting for accelerating your embodiment practice, whether you’re a beginner or experienced meditator. Together we’ll attune to the transparent stillness of fundamental consciousness, which is deeper than the physical, energetic, and conceptual levels of our being. We’ll awaken subtle energetic channels and integrate the breath and energy systems. We’ll refine our senses so we see, feel, hear and touch on a subtler level. Weather permitting, we’ll meditate under the green wisteria, surrounded by purple and red fuchsias, golden lantanas, and blue agapanthus or under the sequoias in my backyard. The invitation is to realize yourself as silence and stillness even as you are entertained by squawking crows, fluttering hummingbirds, scampering squirrels and scurrying bunny rabbits. Awaken your whole being in nature, and open to the flow of life as you sit by the pool, lie in a hammock under the redwoods, or explore pathways meandering past apple, pear and plum trees.
