“I want to unfold. Let no place in me hold itself closed, for where I am ...
The theme of Healing and Awakening brings together two movements of consciousness unfolding: the Eastern and now also Western wave of non-dual spiritual teachings, and the Western wave of healing the pain of humanity through the development of ever new forms of therapy and healing.

Gail will be in conversation with Grace, the organizer on Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 2pm PDT.
Topic: Putting It All Together: The Fertile Ground of Life
Life continuously offers us opportunities to awaken from the dream of our personal suffering. In this open-ended conversation, Gail and Grace will look at how we can bring the insights from the retreat to the continuing unfolding of our lives.
This retreat is an opportunity to come together from all over the world as a virtual sangha (community), to explore this fertile ground of Healing and Awakening in our own lives. It is also an opportunity to hear non-dual spiritual teachers, many of whom are or have also been therapists and healers, reflect on this topic and share their insights. And most of all, it is an opportunity to participate in satsang, a gathering for and in Truth.
As we sit and inquire with teachers whose sharing expresses Truth, a potent field of awareness arises that has the power to transform and help us shift out of the limited perspective of the separate self. The unique expression of Truth, by each of the teachers, adds richness, variety, and depth to the inquiry throughout the weekend, like a bouquet of flowers compared to the unique beauty of a single one.
The wonder and gift of the internet is that it allows us to gather in satsang no matter where we are on this planet. It also gives you the opportunity to participate live by asking questions and interacting with the teachers. The typical format of the sessions will be a first part where the organizer, Grace Bubeck, is in conversation with the teachers about the specific topic for the session, and a second part where you are invited in with your questions and comments (either by posting them on the YouTube comment thread, or by coming onto the Google hangout directly).
