Falling in Love with Where You Are

A Day with Jeff Foster and Matt Licata.    Embracing the Joy and Heartbreak of Spiritual Awakening

How can we rest deeply, even as our hearts break open and our illusions turn to dust?   

How can we stop running away from our pain, our grief, our exhaustion, our failures, even our longing for spiritual awakening, and start embracing ourselves exactly as we are?

How can we stay present and truthful even in the midst of the mess, bliss and confusion of intimate relationship?

Join writer/psychotherapist Matt Licata, and British author/teacher Jeff Foster for this special daylong gathering, to explore the intelligence, wisdom, and creativity buried in the darkness and the shadows of our experience, hidden in the so-called ‘negative’ and unwanted aspects of life.

A new understanding of spiritual awakening is dawning in the West – not as a goal or a fixed destination, a special state or experience of perfection, but a never-ending journey of discovery of the vastness of our true Being, a pathless path of radically opening up to both the pain and joy of life, both the perfection and the heartache.

Sometimes it’s okay to feel broken! Your sadness, your longing, your frustration, your loneliness, your fear, your anxiety are not mistakes on this journey, for there are no mistakes. They are not obstacles on your path. The freedom you long for is not found in the eradication of these ‘messy’ parts of experience, but held in the intelligence they carry. You need not transcend or ‘go beyond’ anything, but be willing to become deeply intimate with your lived, embodied experience. The present moment is your greatest lover and friend. Your own intimate presence is what you have always sought.

Your heartbreak, your confusion, your not-having-the-answers-right-now, is not pathology, it is path; not a sign of your ‘failure to awaken’, but a confirmation of your exquisitely imperfect humanity. The nature of all feelings, both ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ is wisdom, but you must make a home for them within you, in order to receive their gifts. Even your profound confusion or loneliness has something to reveal to you that certainty and joy could never, ever show you.

Your life cannot go wrong, when you see that everything that happens is an invitation to awaken. Join Matt and Jeff for a day of talks, restful meditative silences, exploring feelings, and intimate dialogues; a day of laughter and tears; a day of seeing your struggles, your fears, your sufferings in a fresh new light; a day of resting deeply, of letting go of the exhausting search for ‘something more’…

ABOUT JEFF FOSTER

Jeff Foster studied Astrophysics at Cambridge University. In his mid-twenties, after a long period of depression and illness, he became addicted to the idea of ‘spiritual enlightenment’ and embarked on an intensive spiritual quest for the ultimate truth of existence.

The spiritual search came crashing down with the clear recognition of the non-dual nature of everything, and the discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary. In the clarity of this seeing, life became what it always was: intimate, open, loving and spontaneous, and Jeff was left with a deep understanding of the root illusion behind all human suffering, and a love of the present moment.

Jeff was voted #59 on Watkins Review’s 2014 list of the world’s 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People. Jeff has published five books in over six languages. His latest book Falling in Love With Where You Are is now available from Non-Duality Press.

Jeff’s website can be found at: http://www.lifewithoutacentre.com/

 

ABOUT MATT LICATA

Matt Licata is a psychotherapist in private practice in Boulder, Colorado, and editor of A Healing Space, a blog dedicated to the exploration of vulnerability, intimacy, and the path of the heart.

For the last 20 years, he has worked closely with many of the world’s most respected psychologists, psychotherapists, authors, and spiritual teachers, as Editor-at-Large for the multimedia publishing company, Sounds True.

Matt is co-organizer of The Wake Up Festival, an annual 5-day of transformation, held each year in the glorious Rocky Mountains.

The 21 Stages of Meditation with Gurucharan Singh

Every time we sit down to meditate, whether we are a beginner trying for the first time or a master sitting for the ten thousandth time, there is a journey we each take to reach that intangible quality we call realization—to reach our true Self. The only difference between the beginner and the master is how fast we are able to transit through a Stage, and our willingness to keep proceeding on the journey to the next Stage. By articulating and describing the 21 Stages of Meditation, we have attempted to put into words the states of consciousness that are traversed by those who use the power of meditation to enhance their lives in the pursuit of happiness and peace of mind.

This course will:

- Examine the nature of meditation

- Provide an in-depth experience of the stages of meditation

- Contrast a variety of different meditative techniques

- Provide specific tools that access different parts of your mind and heart

- Increase your personal contemplative capacity

 

Instructor Gurucharan Singh Khalsa, PhD, KRI Director of Training

GurucharanGurucharan is a leader in the design and delivery of applications of meditation and controlled breathing. He is the author of several texts on yoga and meditation including The 21 Stages of Meditation. He is currently Research Professor in Contemplative Science and Transdisciplinary Dialogue at Chapman University while continuing a broad based consulting and clinical counseling practice.

Gurucharan is an expert in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and has been his interpreter and compiler of his teachings since they met in 1969. In addition to developing the 21 Stages, he co-authored with Yogi Bhajan Breathwalk and The Mind.

Learning with Gurucharan is playful and dynamic. His caliber is wonderful and compassionate. I am impressed by the combination of simplicity and clarity. His approach is fun and comprehensive.-- Liliana Rosas, teacher, San Vicenti Chile

Sophia Elements Meditations

Come in good spirits and ready to engage – these require your participation in relation to challenges facing the elements of our world (earth, water, air, fire and the fifth element).

6:30 PM gather for a light share-a-plate meal at the outdoor tables near the WaterHouse, readying for a 7:15 PM start in the StarHouse

These sessions are working, focused meditations engaging high levels of energy, using the StarHouse as a powerful tool. They stand on their own in relation to the body of Sophia (the 4 sacred elements, including the fifth sacred thing–Love) and are also opportunities to experience the inflow of Sophianic energy to see you wish to relate more closely to this transmission. You can try one, ideally early on; they are not repeats of the same content, and will build over time.

Sacred Sound Gong Bath with Richard Rudis

Solar Plexus – 3rd Chakra – Personal Power

$20 prepd/$25 @ the door

prepay @ www.bodhitreeenergetics.com

 

‘Sacred Sound’ is found within all world cultures and spiritual traditions.

It is the basis of music’s ability to calm, awaken, heal, balance and energize the human spirit.  It is a spiritual language (a sound matrix) that is intrinsically understood by all sentient beings and that is experienced universally in therapeutic terms.

A ‘Gong Bath™’ is an expression of ‘Sacred Sound’. It is a construct of sound frequencies, harmonics and overtones rooted in Buddhist teachings and practice techniques. It is a powerful vibrational journey which positively affect emotional balance, cellular healing and spiritual awareness. It is an alchemy of eastern philosophy, bio-energetics and quantum science; a most powerful tool towards the realization of our greatest innate potential. Within every ‘Gong Bath’ each participant is bathed with rhythms, tonalities and multi-tonal octaves of Sacred Sound that are naturally revitalizing, stress reducing and induces profound natural healing physically, mentally and spiritually.

 

Presenter: Richard Rudis, (Karma Sonam Dorje), has studied Eastern philosophy, principally Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist practice, for over thirty years. Granted refuge in the Buddha from His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa while in Tibet in the year 1996; he has been teaching Buddhist Dharma and conducting ‘Vibrational Sound Healing Workshops’ since 1988.  He is a published writer, musician and lecturer on the subject of sacred sound healing; as it is reflected within Tibetan Buddhist tradition and current scientific understanding. He conducts sound healing experience know as a ‘Gong Bath™’ nationally and has produces several sound healing and teaching CD’s/DVD’s (see www.sacredsoundgongbath.com).

StarHouse Autumn Equinox

We will honor the Four Elements in High Communion ritual, weaving them all with the Fifth Element, which is Love.  This event is open to the public, and we invite you all to enter it with an intention to bring resonance into the Field, using ourselves and our commitment to working with planetary magic to find balance, within and without. We walk in a world where we can feel the sense of helplessness, at a time when we are most needed to rise to a Higher Vision. The Four Element Communion will help restore the sense of inner alignment, which we then will focus towards high blessing of the Earth.  Facilitated by Lila and David Tresemer, Candice Knight and Amber Ortega.

Suggested Donation: $15 adult $5 youth.  Open to the public and free to StarHouse members.
