Awakening To The Infinite:
The Heart Of Non-dual Awareness

Meditation Retreat Led By Lawrence Edwards, PhD - March 15-17, 2019
Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY. 

Awakening to the Infinite is awakening to your true nature, an inexhaustible source of creativity, wisdom, love, and power beyond anything the ordinary mind can even imagine. We will draw on the power of Kundalini Shakti and the non-dual teachings of Kashmir Shaivism, ecstatic poet saints, meditation and chanting practices to shift consciousness out of the confines of the ordinary mind into the state of sublime unity awareness.  This is the boundless awareness of "I Am" that embraces all beings, all things and beyond. Everyone has the capacity to know the Infinite, the Divine, as their own Self and to live their lives with wisdom, grace and boundless love.  Repeated immersion in that state transforms your mind, body and your entire life. 

The classic forms of Shaktipat Diksha are offered in the retreat.  Shaktipat means the descent of grace - Shakti Kundalini, the power of Infinite to know Itself in all its fullness.  Shaktipat initiates the process of awakening and transformation that carries you home to the Self, the Divine, the Creator at one with creation. Shakti is the boundless, loving energy of the Divine, also known as Holy Spirit, Chi and by many other names.  It is your essential nature and your birthright to know the freedom she bestows. The ancient Vedas declare, "Tat Twam Asi", Thou Art That.  Come home to the non-dual awareness of I Am, come home to your true nature.

Please register before the limited spaces are taken.

Sharings from people who attended past retreats with Lawrence:
"I received more than I ever could have imagined."
---
"I struggled with my mind, but more and more I settled into profound stillness and peace."
---
"I have studied with many teachers and Indian Gurus, but never before had I received Shaktipat.  I could feel the energy flowing into the top of my head when Lawrence placed his hand there, so powerful, so loving."
---
"I'm taking home the laughter and delight!"
---
"The power of mantra and the Maha Kali Yantra simply swept my mind away."

Sophia' Gifts

My beloved,
You see what I’ve become
But you don’t see me!
I’m delighted you're so enthralled
by all the forms my dancing
energy takes!
Earth, water, fire, air,
galaxies and universes!
Beings beyond number!
Countless minds and
all they think!
Life and death in all their
glory and gore!
Yes, I become all that is
Or ever will be.
But, my dearest, you don’t see me.

You tire of knowing
what can be seen.
Now dissolve back into the
One who’s never seen,
yet sees all.
It’s the only way to know
me, my beloved,
and to know the infinite Love
that has become this
magnificent universe,
holding it all
in Love’s sublime embrace.

Know me in the stillness
of complete surrender,
beyond seer and seen,
where our eternal union
alone exists.
