In this comprehensive and compelling talk, Adyashanti conveys what it means to wake up at all levels—in the mind, heart, and gut. First, he points to the spacious emptiness discovered when we faithfully enter the inner solitude beyond our conditioned thinking and self-identification. He then explores what it means to experience the intimacy of oneness with a trusting and sensitive heart. Finally, he describes the irrational clench of “no” in the gut, and diving so deeply into it that we connect with the instinct of “yes” to everything, the calling to completely return to God.
Topics Include: Bringing Your Creativity to Spirituality / Emptiness Beyond the Conceptual Mind / Trusting Inner Solitude / Perceiving from the Heart / Extreme Intimacy / Fearing the Infinite / The Deepest Calling of “Yes”
