“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"
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 distinguish subtle body from simultaneous mind and embodied heart-mind from the no-self view of awake awareness.
Loch Kelly, author of the award-winning book, "Shift into Freedom: The Science and Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness" and his new audiobook "Effortless Mindfulness Now: Awakening Our Natural Capacity for Focus, Freedom, and Joy", offers simple maps and transformational tools that you can learn in a weekend and practice at home.
