Please Note: The Talks and Guided Meditations from this retreat are available for purchase separately.
Q&A Session Topics Include:
“To accept the great unfolding of the human drama, we need both a strong and a soft heart.”
“What death is taking away is personhood, not presence.”
“Spirituality is the process of letting go of our dream of who we think we are so that our true nature can present itself.”
“Spiritual teachings are not ultimate truths.”
“Until we realize that relative existence is also the face of God, we are continually separating out our humanness from the divine.”
“The spiritual impulse lives in a constant state of discovery.”
“The most useful spiritual practice is the practice of acknowledgement. What grows in experience is what we give attention to.”
“Kundalini is the raw energy of the immensity of the unconscious that can flood the consciousness.”
“Not knowing is really nice, but it is not the final step; it is along the way in.”
“Be the willingness to be a conscious mystery, the greatest enigma of life, and just rest there.”
“One mistake most people make is that we think the intuitive guidance will give us certainty. It won’t.”
“We must go deep enough into stillness to allow stillness to inform our actions.”
“Most experiences of meaninglessness come from pain.”
“When your mind gets confused, take it by the hand and say, ‘We’re going to look at experience.’”
“There doesn’t have to be a self to have thoughts.”
“Silence is what hears sound.”
“Spirit is an awake, aware, vibrant, and inspiring nothing.”
“If we develop the delusion that 'I' have awakened, everyone around us should fasten their seat belts.”
“Express and embody the deepest thing within you.”
Recorded at Granlibakken Tahoe in Tahoe City, California on May 17-24, 2019.
