Freedom is here and now.
This talk will strengthen the awareness of what it takes to live in daily sanity and happiness.
Yes - it’s totally possible… because we really want it!
It's simple, and at first, not so easy... but it gets easier and easier.

Brian and Alexandra draw on A Course in Miracles and the tradition of Ramana Maharshi in their exploration of relationships as a path of awakening. The structure of any relationship can be a vehicle to go beyond that structure itself. Relationship, if given to truth, is a path of awakening to what lies beyond all concepts and definitions.

“The only real relationship is with your Self. Everything unlike love must get exposed and felt in the light of loving awareness, and seen through. There’s no way around that fact in our experience. Whatever a relationship may seem to be, as we become willing to relate without a past, everything is forgiven and healed. All definitions of our relationships are way too small, and are bound to be disillusioned. But love is real, and knows how to use all our relationships for continuous awakening.”
