"Enlightenment or awakening is not a particular experience or state of mind that may be achieved by practicing hard enough or meditating long enough. It is the recognition of the very nature of the mind itself. " Rupert Spira
This course is open to anyone feeling ready to dive deep into self-exploration. The emphasis in this series is on EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING and different from a class that teaches information and knowledge. Awakening Together gatherings are about unlearning, lightening up and letting go. We will explore various videos, quotes, and books from the 'wisdom keepers' of our time. These are ordinary people of all walks of life who live in a more awakened state, in harmony with the nature of their true self. Each session highlights teachings that support us to examine ourselves in relation to the selected course theme. Perhaps most importantly, this series is an opportunity for you to be in a space among a supportive community so you can nourish yourself and fill up your tank.
How you choose to participate is entirely up to you and you are encouraged to integrate the themes in a way that empowers your own personal transformation. You will receive a weekly email with a re-cap of the session, along with additional resources and supports. You will also be matched with a "series sidekick" partner who will act as your peer support.
