The year is 2016. You are in San Francisco. You are ready to awaken. Actually, you've been awakening. You’ve read spiritual books and maybe attended meetings and retreats. You love Awakening Conversations that deepens your Presence. You are ready to give up ego, drama, suffering, mirages, and unconscious relationships. The ego is not as ready to give up sometimes. We can together create this space to return to peace.
You want to find inner peace, conscious loving and continue on your next step in your spiritual journey. You still have to juggle work, family, money, health and other challenges at the same time. Or, maybe not.
You are interested in self-realization, enlightening relationships, freedom, happiness, harmony and even prosperity and raising human consciousness in the world. You are spiritual, not necessarily religious, but still living in the horizontal world of form.
Spiritual teachers you like: Eckhart Tolle, Buddha, Byron Katie, Adyashanti, Nisargadatta, Ramana Maharshi, and many others. Your favorite spiritual books: The Power Of Now, A New Earth, Loving what is, ACIM, Tao, BG, and many other books about enlightenment, awakening, personal growth, yoga, healing, helping, consciousness and spirituality.
What (format): mostly awakening conversations and book club & study group of the most helpful spiritual teachings of all times.
I am a spiritual student and seeker just like you. I had similar groups in my home for years before moving to SF almost a year ago based on the Practicing Presence format of Eckhart Tolle right after the 2002 retreat. We had a silent nature meditation walk prior to the Saturday morning meetings. I love SF and want to participate, share in the awakening, meet other interested people and go from there. My most recent favorite spiritual book is ‘I am that’, but I love many spiritual books and have had a collection of hundreds only to find out the simplest way to enlightening.

"Whether or not you are engaged in a lot of "doing" in your life, "being" is primary. If you lose touch with being, you lose yourself in your mind, you lose yourself in doing, and you won't do any good for anybody, really." Eckhart Tolle
