This group is based on The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, and similar teachings in nondual wisdom. The meetings are lead by Jordan and are intended to offer a practical encounter in experiencing The Now and meeting yourself as you are.
This is not a "discussion" or "study" group, as such, because discussing is mind activity that only leads to more mind. Instead, this group offers the opportunity of being present with others, which alows you to experience your true nature, inner peace and the state of being below the level of awareness.
There may be some teaching that arises out of the moment, and some questions may be posed and answered; however, the main intention is to experience silence and the field of presence with others.
According to Eckhart, group work can be helpful for intensifying the light of your presence. A group of people coming together in a state of presence generates a collective energy field of great intensity. This raises the degree of presence of each member of the group and helps to free the collective human consciousness from its current state of mind dominance. This will make the state of presence increasingly more accessible to individuals."
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
