This is a weekend of heart-awakening practice—powerful teachings and methods for opening up your hidden capacity for relationship to the Beloved—both within yourself, in the people in your life, and in the world.
It’s been said that the path of love is the easiest of all paths to enlightenment. Relational spiritual practice—devotion– has been part of every spiritual tradition. But there are skills to be learned if we want to walk the path of love, and we need to know how to apply them not only in ecstatic moments or times of intimate connection, but also in the moments when love seems far away and difficult to access.
In this workshop, guided by two powerful teachers, we’ll practice at the cutting edge of enlightening love.
We’ll begin with a pragmatic post-traditional perspective on the devotional path, how to practice it in our relationship to spirit, and also in our intimate, ordinary, and difficult moments with lovers, friends and family.
We’ll find out what it means to be held by the divine, and to hold the divinely human in others. We’ll explore how we can let love transmute pain and confusion into light. We’ll look at insights from two great traditions about surrender to the divine.
We’ll practice entering into divine presence for uncovering and healing emotional wounds.
We’ll explore how to love through your wounds, love in the crunch, love as perception, and love as an energetic experience.
The weekend is layered with deep meditation, ecstatic chant, transformative partner work and contemplation—offered with Marc’s loving visionary wisdom, power and humor, and Sally’s sublime transmission of expanded states of the heart.
