How do we awaken here and now as everyday people?
Awakening is not just about Waking Up –- to realize the Mystery of our Infinite Nature. It’s also about Waking DOWN -- into life, our bodies, our issues, and relating to others in Mutuality with honor and authenticity. These are the insights of Saniel Bonder, founder of the Waking Down teaching.
Our gatherings, called sittings, will include silent meditation, mutual gazing meditation, and conscious sharing in a setting that facilitates embodied trust. The Boston gatherings are usually led by Allan Morelock (embodiedheartawakening.com; http://teachers.wakingdown.org/AllanMorelock/) and Gena Netten (http://teachers.wakingdown.org/GenaNetten/).
We offer compassionate listening to each other as we explore embodied awakening in mutually conscious relationship, and we practice acceptance in Being with whatever is happening in the moment, without pressure to redirect things or "fix" ourselves. Transformation happens readily and organically through the wisdom of Being, in each person’s right timing.
Come to a Waking Down Meetup and give yourself the chance to steep in a sacred space dedicated entirely to the deepening recognition of all that we are, as a platform for individual and collective evolution.
You may have an extensive spiritual history, or little, or none. We welcome you to join this collaborative exploration of Embodied Awakening!
