This 5-download set includes all of the Q&A sessions with Adyashanti and retreat attendees during the September 2019 silent retreat at Granlibakken Tahoe.
Please Note: The Talks and Guided Meditations from this retreat are available for purchase separately.
Q&A Session Topics Include:
“There is no such thing as psychological or emotional tension not showing up in the body.”
“The desire for enlightenment is the first indication the spiritual instinct has arisen.”
“The ego will turn everything into seeking, even non-seeking."
“From the standpoint of true nature, meditation is like planting a seed in the ground. See meditation as a way to allow true nature to arise on its own."
“Imagine that there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that isn’t part of the divine expression. Even the ego is part of the divine expression.”
“An enlightened being is completely at ease with their humanity.”
“A heart that’s open is also a heart that’s broken.”
“The capacity for surrender does not come from the ego; it comes from true nature.”
“The way to the deeper experience of knowing is right through the center of not knowing.”
“If we go into a spiritual practice, and we try to be what we know, that itself is a barrier.”
“You have to be willing to be disturbed.”
“The way to move out of the spectator is either to look really deeply into the nature of the spectator or really deeply into the nature of the forest.”
“When awareness and its object collapse, it is a very different experience of awareness. The world is seeing itself through you.”
“One of the fundamental erroneous assumptions is that we are ‘doing’ awareness. Awareness is aware. There’s no somebody behind it that is doing that.”
“Never assume that anything about your makeup is in any way not how it is supposed to be.”
Recorded at Granlibakken Tahoe in Tahoe City, California on September 22-27, 2019.
