Yet if we never discover it for ourselves and make it a living presence, how can we ever relieve our suffering and transform our lives? In this talk, Stephan will explore this paradox, known as the gateless gate in Zen or the open secret, and discuss the paradoxical value of the search. Enquiries: [masked] About Stephan: Stephan Bodian has been practicing and teaching the direct approach to awakened living for more than 40 years, including 10 years as a Buddhist monk and another 10 as a close disciple of Jean Klein.

Stephan Bodian - Weekend Intensive - Coming Home to the Heart of Awareness

Date: Saturday 27 July and Sunday 28 July Time: 11.00am - 17.00pm each day VENUE: The Philadelphia Association, 4 Marty's Yard, 17 Hampstead High Street, London, NW3 1QW Tube: Hampstead Station on the Northern Line Price: £50 for individual days or £85 for the entire weekend. Concessions are available Stephan is giving a Friday evening satsang the night before at the same venue and details of this can be found here here: https://www.meetup.com/London-Advaita/events/261397114/ Coming Home to the Heart of Awareness The journey of awakening is an arc of return back home to our natural, inborn condition of happiness, peace, and love, from which we have been estranged by years of conditioning and apparent separation. Rather than seeking outside ourselves in meditative states and cultivated qualities, we need simply take the backward step that turns the light of awareness back upon itself and reveals our inherently awake true nature, which is always shining in the midst of difficulty and suffering. This weekend retreat will feature powerful pointers back to our homeground of awakened awareness; silent and guided meditations that invite us to recognize this awakened ground directly for ourselves; and lively, heartful dialogue that both explores what we truly are and reveals and releases the false beliefs and identities we take ourselves to be. As a practicing psychotherapist, Stephan brings to his teaching a deep sensitivity to the poignancy and complexity of our human condition and an appreciation not only of our absolute true nature as awakened awareness but also of the challenges of embodying this truth in the everyday world of love and work.
