Loch Kelly and Anna-Lisa Adelberg: Effortless Heart Mindfulness: Level Two Retreat

Many of us have had glimpses of the freedom from separate sense of self, which can be a powerful, but initial, “waking up.” Some consider this transcendent “not-dual” state the goal of awakening and can end up in a detached witness, a couch-potato stage, or continually “getting it and losing it.”

Just as there are helpful pointers to “waking up,” there are ways to support the unfolding of “waking-in” to an energetic embodied well-being and then “waking-out” to be able to create and compassionately relate to others. Each stage brings its own liberation. Waking up leads to freedom from the fear of death. Waking-in leads to freedom from the fear of life. Waking-out leads to freedom from the fear of love. We will learn contemporary versions of ancient wisdom practices in order to liberate shadow parts and shift from head to heart-mind. We will learn to navigate our consciousness through small glimpses of open-hearted awareness. From this intrinsic support, we can learn ways to energetically embody and live from the joy of effortless heart mindfulness.   

Please Note: This Level Two Retreat is designed for anyone who has listened to or read Shift Into Freedom or attended a previous event with Loch or Anna-Lisa.
