This 4-download set includes all of the Q&A sessions with Adyashanti and retreat attendees during the August 2019 Woldingham silent retreat in Surrey, U.K.
Please Note: The Talks and Guided Meditations from this retreat must be purchased separately.
Q&A Session Topics Include:
“The good meditation is the meditation that’s actually happening. That’s the one that’s supposed to be. And how do you know that’s the one that’s supposed to be? Because that’s the one you’re having.”
“Your true nature is so much more than your mind imagines.”
“Our greatest freedom comes right through the heart of where our greatest pain is.”
“Give all of yourself to the deepest place in you. You won’t always feel it necessarily; it might seem to come and go, but the more we give it attention, the more it grows, and the more obvious it becomes.”
“Even the Buddha is eternally becoming Buddha. The Buddha is Buddha, incomplete and total, and even the Buddha is becoming Buddha, always.”
“What’s this experience of being when the ego is just left to itself? There’s something there that’s not a thought. It’s not a feeling really. It’s not a memory. It’s more like a quiet awareness or quiet presence.”
“One of the ways you know it’s a real awakening, rather than a nice experience or something, is it feels like all of a sudden everything is redeemed.”
“Unfortunately spiritual teachers are just like coat hangers for people’s projections.”
"When we have some revelatory experience, we will be quickly presented with an opportunity to embody it in our human lives. Sometimes the opportunity may not feel so much like an opportunity.”
“Maybe the most difficult thing when we face challenging experiences, especially overwhelming ones or frightening ones, is that they convince us that there is something wrong with us. We lose touch with 'I am actually whole.' There is completeness having a human experience right now. Maybe it is a very challenging human experience, but it doesn't mean that we're not whole and complete, right from the beginning.”
Recorded at Woldingham School in Woldingham, Surrey, U.K. on August 11–16, 2019.
