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."

Dear Friends,

Our mission at Anam Cara is to make meditation training freely available to everyone and supporting people in their ongoing meditation practices. Given the state of turmoil in the world it is especially important that we have an inner state of calm centeredness that empowers us to bring wisdom, compassion and transformation to the world. 

We make meditation training available through free and paid programs, free meditation resources on our website and this e-newsletter. We're looking forward to the next retreat, Awakening To The Infinite: The Heart Of Non-dual Awareness, at the Garrison Institute March 15-17, 2019.  Space is limited so please be sure to register early. 

As a non-profit educational organization we are grateful for the support of participants and donors whose generosity makes all this possible.  If you would like to make a donation there is a button below, just click and donate! I deeply appreciate the many ways people help us to fulfill our mission, including sharing this newsletter with others.  It's a privilege for me to serve the Anam Cara community.  Please contact me, le@anamcara-ny.org, if you have any comments you would like to share with me.

When I Return
    By Dorothy Walters
    The Kundalini Poems, p.145-6
 
When I leave
I will become
Buddha again.

My face, my arms, my body --
all will glow
with quivering light.

I will sit quietly,
enjoying the bliss,
send rays of healing
in answer to prayers.

I will return,
the way the raindrop
falls
into the ocean
and becomes one with
the pounding surf,
the quiet pool.

If you want to see me,
you can look everywhere,
even in the paintings
and the sculptured forms.

I am the cloud passing,
the light
streaming through the forest.

I am the child crying,
the animal struggling in the trap.

I am all this and all else,
I am that I am.
