This 6-download set contains all of the Talks from the March 2020 silent retreat at Mount Madonna Conference Center. This set includes the first evening talk and all the morning talks, including the Friday morning session (which is also part of the Q&A session download set.)
Please Note: The Q&A Sessions and Guided Meditations from this retreat are available for purchase separately.
Talk Topics Include:
“We’re very used to hearing ourselves; we’re not so used to listening to ourselves.”
“We have an infinite capacity for the Infinite to realize itself.”
“One good encounter with the Numinous can alter someone’s entire life course.”
“There is no instant we are not our true nature, but we can be distracted by the brighter or darker aspects of human nature.”
“In a certain sense, the spiritual instinct is the Numinous seeking its recognition of itself, its remembrance.”
“The bigness of a given experience is no indication of how deep that moment of insight actually goes or how long it will last.”
“The Numinous is always right there at the center of our immediate experience of being.”
“There’s something about what’s always been that transcends our descriptions of it.”
“Notice That which is only aware.”
“The experience of open mind and open heart is a taste of the unconditioned.”
“It’s a wondrous experience when we connect to the Universal. We’re home. Consciousness is resting in its absolute Ground.”
“We have a deep instinct to be connected to the Totality because we are the Totality.”
“The individual seeks transcendence and the Transcendence is seeking its embodied articulation in the individual.”
“Insight is the result of an instantaneous harmonization of body and mind—all of your depth comes together, and it comes from the Totality.”
“Meditation is so much bigger than the form of ritual embodiment of sitting down on a cushion.”
“Underneath the diversity of our lives is a living Presence in all whom we encounter.”
Recorded in Watsonville, California on March 1-6, 2020.
