The Joy of Collective Awakening ~ Zoom Online with residential zoom option.
with Amma Ṭhanasanti and Deborah Eden Tull
November 20 - 22, 2020
In this time of disruption, we have compounding challenges internally and globally causing heightened anxiety and overwhelm for many. Alongside these challenges, many of us sense the invitation for collective awakening that is calling us. We will begin this online retreat using body awareness meditation to ground our attention. We will focus on the joys of body-centered meditation practices and mindful inquiry to take us beyond the limiting beliefs that hold our suffering in place. Then ritual, relational mindfulness, and deep time in nature we will connect with the joy in being present with ourselves, the natural world, and with others. Through these practices, we come to know the natural experience of joy, resilience, and courage in ourselves and in spiritual friendship with each other dedicated to collective awakening.
