Awakening Embodied Two Day Nonresidential Retreat

Poet’s Corner

“In my many years of knowing and working with Loch Kelly, I feel that he is one of the clearest expressions of authentic awakened freedom and love that I know.” – Adyashanti, author of True Meditation Fee: $150 REGISTER HERE: https://lochkelly.org/event/berkeley-ca-2-day-nonresidential-retreat/ In Awakening Embodied we will explore ways of supporting living an awakened life. It is not enough to simply wake up out of everyday ego mind to pure awareness. In order to live with your eyes open, in relationships and work, we need to familiarize ourselves with new ways of "doing from Being." Loch will give us a map and methods of navigating through the five levels of mind, that are talked about in many of the world’s wisdom traditions. We will move through and glimpse everyday ego mind to subtle body-mind to awake awareness to simultaneous mind to heart-mind. Most importantly, we will learn to recognize awake awareness and then to realize embodied awakening. Loch Kelly, author of the best-selling book, "The Way of Effortless Mindfulness", offers simple maps and transformational tools that you can learn in a weekend and practice at home: https://amzn.to/2TR1U6K REGISTER HERE: https://lochkelly.org/event/berkeley-ca-2-day-nonresidential-retreat/

Esalen | Five-day Workshop with Loch Kelly & Anna-Lisa Adelberg

REGISTER HERE: https://www.esalen.org/learn/workshop/effortless-mindfulness-how-to-live-an-awakened-life/4062 For everyone. What would the world be like if more of us discovered how to live an awakened life? Loch Kelly and Anna-Lisa Adelberg have integrated wisdom practices, neuroscience, and psychological research to support awakening as the next natural stage of human development. This retreat is for those who have benefitted from mindfulness meditation, yoga, psychotherapy, service to others, or have had a non-dual, transcendent awakening but feel like they “get it and lose it” and are asking "What’s next?". Awakening begins with a shift out of our small, separate sense of self to discover an “awake” awareness that we sense has been there all along. That awake awareness is inseparable from unconditional love and the dynamic aliveness interconnected with everything. Learn easily accessible methods that weave together feminine and masculine approaches to awakening and combine an ancient wisdom map, contemporary psychological models of healing and unique energetic ways of connecting. Come learn how to shift out of your chattering mind and into embodied, openhearted awareness in the midst of everyday life. Small glimpse practices, spontaneous chi gung, walks in nature, yoga, shadow healing, peer inquiry and small group support bring us into energetic connection and embodied joyful flow.
