Our paths of personal development and spiritual awakening are propelled forward spontaneously by inner drives that are inherent to our true psycho-spiritual natures. Too often, however, this natural development becomes blocked, particularly at the leading edge of our individual evolution. In this workshop, you will look at the sources of this blockage and gain tools for releasing them by asking:

  • What are the internal forces that "endarken" rather than enlighten me?
  • Why do these forces want to keep me blind to certain self-truths?
  • Do I have any control over their presence within me?
  • Is there a place inside of me that is free of their control, and if it exists, how do I find and access that place?
  • What can I do to preserve my contact with that place from moment to moment?

We will address these questions through a combination of group discussions, sharing of experiences, and practice periods using individual and group methods designed to release the grip of our egos and deepen our access to our inner truthplace. You will come away with a greater clarity regarding the nature of ego, how it does its job within each of us, and how to slip its grip; greater clarity about the location and nature of your truthplace and how to access it; increased capacity to bring compassion to your inner self; greater capacity to live in alignment with your own felt truth; the experience of a deeper and more grounded sense of personal authenticity, authority and agency; and a broadened and deepened connection to others of like mind.
