Living Meditation: Deepening & Integrating Practices
Spring Meditation Retreat Led By Lawrence Edwards, PhD - March 20-22, 2020
Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY.
Living Meditation will take you into the rich meditative practices and teachings found at the most profound levels of the great spiritual traditions. This is where the ultimate state of non-dual awareness unfolds in all its ecstatic glory! During this retreat you will learn to deepen and integrate meditation into everyday life, opening the mind and heart to the boundless love, joy and expanded consciousness of one's true nature. Living Meditation uplifts our home life, work, health and all that we engage in. Meditation begins as a set of practices and then the transformative power of meditation becomes apparent. We shed old conditioned patterns of mind that have us stuck. The transformative processes of meditation develop and ripen, opening the boundless domain of the state of Living Meditation, also known as sahaja samadhi, in which the waking, dream and deep sleep states are illumined and transformed. In this retreat you will learn how to deepen your practices, further empower the transformative process of meditation and discover the state of radical freedom, the state of Living Meditation. This is the state of the Living Presence that already exists within you as your true nature. Some call this their Buddha nature, or their Christ nature, or their Divine Self. Whatever we call it, it is beyond words, beyond the mind, yet at the very heart of our Being. Come to know your state of radical freedom, come to know the living presence of the divine within.
The retreat will include instruction for all levels of practitioners. We will dive into meditation, chanting, mantra, contemplations and integrative practices for bringing it all home. Discussions and Q&A time will help to further integrate the practices. All the classic forms of Shaktipat Diksha are incorporated in the retreat and pass the living flame of Kundalini Shakti to everyone wanting to receive it.Give yourself this weekend retreat to joyfully deepen your meditation practice and immersion in the Divine.
