About the Trillium Path
The Trillium path stems from the principles of Waking Down in Mutuality, and includes the investigation and realization of infinite Consciousness (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#consciousness) as your fundamental identity and core essence. Discovering you are free of limits, while also being in touch with them, helps pave the way for the second birth (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#second-birth) awakening where you recognize the underlying unity of Consciousness and matter. To activate this realization, our teachers offer transmission (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#transmission) by non-verbally conveying the awakened condition from one individual to another. Transmission rapidly catalyzes your awakening, and is readily available via gazing (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#gazing) meditation, writings, recordings, personal sessions, small group sittings or large group events. As a practitioner, you might notice shifts impacting many areas of your life in a short period of time. Within a few months to a few years, you’ll most likely achieve your second birth (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#second-birth), and be deeply engaged in embodying that awareness throughout your life.
The Trillium journey helps you discover you are simultaneously infinite and finite. The embodiment dimension of our work helps you embrace infinite Consciousness throughout the full range of your unique human form, from its messy, uncomfortable aspects to its most delightful qualities. We use greenlighting (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#greenlighting), a form of profound compassion and radical acceptance, to become aware of whatever we are experiencing so that we can integrate it, and allow it to be organically transformed over time. Greenlighting relaxes the body-mind and enlivens the body’s experience of infinite Consciousness. Facing patterns and revisiting past wounds is a natural part of the awakening process. It frees energy and attention for greater levels of aliveness in the present. For support throughout the process, we recommend you turn to your teachers, mentors, and peers. Support teams can also include licensed therapists (http://teachers.trilliumawakening.org/contact_teachers.asp#Therapist) as well as other practitioners within and outside the Trillium Awakening community.
Mutual, conscious relating is essential to the Trillium journey. Mutuality is a relationship disposition that self and other are two aspects of singular Being (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#being). In other words, other is not really “other”; it is also you, and it is therefore impossible to harm another person without also harming yourself. Living this aspect of relatedness means having profound respect for others, listening deeply, and reflecting consciously. It also means honoring and speaking your truth while making room for others to do the same—which can be challenging. Through the practice of mutuality, you deeply explore and claim your authentic nature though vulnerable self-expression, even when it is uncomfortable. You also build capacity to perceive the tension and experience the discomfort in your differences with others. Old wounds might surface when engaging in mutuality, but, over time, the practice builds trust and facilitates deep healing and transformation. While honoring each other’s truth and existential equality in Being (http://www.trilliumawakening.org/about/glossary/#being), mutuality simultaneously evokes respect for the functional hierarchy within our community.
This meet up is for the spiritually minded who feel drawn to an earthy-bodily connection to being alive and presence as their lives.
For those who are not satisfied with soaring spirituality as enjoying as that can be but only temporary but long for an embodied heart-ful connection to themselves and others. We meet in meditation and contemplate our already whole-being lives.
The alchemical charge and transformational field that gets activated when we come together completely without an agenda, just for the sake of itself, is moving and inspiring. Please join us.
