Ecstatic Union: The Way of Poet Saints & Mystics!

Meditation Retreat Led By Lawrence Edwards, PhD - October 11-13, 2019
Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY. 

Every spiritual tradition has its poet saints and mystics who express the ecstatic, love-drenched state of union in language and poetry that propels the mind back to its source. Dissolve the mind and its endless stream of chatter in the ocean of ecstatic Being through the inspired poetry of the great mystics of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism.  The truth is that we're all mystics seeking the direct experience of what lies beyond the ordinary mind and senses.  You can fulfill that longing to penetrate the mystery of the transcendent One through meditation, practice, and the gifts of grace. 
This weekend retreat will be a celebration of the living presence of the Divine within everyone, right here, right now. We’ll use the power of mantra and meditation, as well as the inspired words of great masters, to leave the ordinary mind behind and rest in the immeasurable joy, love, compassion, and equanimity of Unity Consciousness! You are invited to bring your own favorite spiritual poem to share. Give yourself this weekend retreat to joyfully deepen your meditation practice and immersion in the Divine.  The retreat includes the classic forms of Shaktipat and teachings on unlimited power of Consciousness known as Kundalini in the yogic tradition.

Program Fee: $230, plus Garrison Institute's accommodations fees. Visit the registration page for details.

Dear Friends,

Our mission at Anam Cara is to make meditation training freely available to everyone and to support 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 into the world. 

We make meditation training available through free weekly programs, our website, retreats, courses, and this e-newsletter. Now we're looking forward to the next retreat, Ecstatic Union: The Way Of Poet Saints And Mystics, to be held on Columbus Day weekend in October.  I hope you can join us for this joyous meditation retreat and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage on the majestic Hudson River!

The free weekly Thursday evening meditation programs are open to everyone, nothing to join, no registration needed, just come!

As a non-profit educational organization we are grateful for the support of participants and donors whose generosity makes all this possible. I deeply appreciate the many ways people help us to fulfill our mission, including sharing this newsletter with others and telling people about our programs.  It's a privilege for me to serve the Anam Cara community.  Please contact me,, if you have anything you would like to share with me.

With love and respect for all,

Lawrence Edwards, PhD - Founder & Director

Sophia' Gifts


in death I lose a body
and He will lose
my phantasies of Him

I go shirtless
to this lovemaking

my body becomes all soul
every hairtip alive

love, enter this body's house
or I must leave it
to seek you

my soul is a ship
scudding the waves
in pursuit of love

be drunk on love
for love is all that exists

mother and father played at love
and one such as you
sprang from nothingness...
