Do you find it difficult to embrace the discomfort of the unknown?
How are you relating to the prevailing, almost hypnotic tendency toward worry, overthinking, and fear?
It’s fairly common to want guarantees and certainty in life… to try to force specific outcomes… to be anxious about what may come. Yet, these difficult states of mind can breed tremendous stress and pain in the emotional, physical, and mental realms of your being, and may lead to insomnia, headaches, and a host of other physical and psychological ailments.
Abiding in the crucible of the unknown is at the heart of many Eastern spiritual teachings, and is the essence of becoming a spiritual warrior.
The Buddha said, “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
Embracing the unknown through heart-centered awareness can be a much-needed grounding and therapeutic practice — especially now when the present is so challenging and the future so uncertain.
Yet, you can become a spiritual warrior and heartfully embrace the unknown.
What would it take to experience a pure or clear mind — a mind that knows how to let go and rest... a mind willing to relax into lush inner pastures of calm? And, going one step further, how could you increase your capacity for joy and courage, regardless of your circumstances or world events?
Rather than being an unattainable ideal that only a select few can reach, joyfulness and courage can be nurtured by simple shifts in your frame of reference, and a gentle commitment to consistent mindfulness practice.
During this timely series, you’ll receive teachings from a diverse assembly of speakers representing the numerous paths and traditions under the large umbrella of mindfulness and meditation.
They’ll be sharing ways that mindfulness and meditation can vastly impact your mental and emotional wellbeing, increase your ability to stay centered and at peace, and bolster your innate resources for navigating disturbing or difficult experiences.
During the Mindfulness & Meditation Summit series, a convergence of leading guides, practitioners, and teachers will equip you with time-honored methods to become a strong and stable meditator.
They'll offer a stream of practical, fortifying, and simple insights for living a more present, centered, peaceful, and compassionate life.
Whether you’ve been practicing mindfulness and meditation for years, or you’re just starting out, you'll receive profoundly life-enhancing transmissions you can benefit from right away.
Anchor in the ‘Ground of Being’ and Restore Peace & Confidence
What an interesting time to try to clear your mind... in the midst of the torrential downpour of information, conflicting opinions, and general noise we hear these days, all of which contributes to fear and upset.
What if you could use this unusual global pause to reclaim your own mind’s natural state of ease?
Does it mean you ignore the news? Pretend like tragic things don’t happen? Not at all. But you can choose to focus your mind in ways that affect your inner landscape and bring you to a state of grace.
Seasoned meditators will tell you that the practice of becoming present and abiding in the NOW never gets old or becomes irrelevant — and that the results you’re seeking depend on your gentle daily tending, much like a garden, so you can stay healthy and whole. Over time, you'll find that less and less in your inner or outer world has the power to disturb or preoccupy you.
During this 4-day journey into mindfulness and meditation, you’ll return again and again to the deep well of wisdom… to be reminded of your core nature, the part of you that’s vast and timeless.
Our remarkable speakers, representing a wide variety of wisdom traditions, will provide timely (and timeless) insights, inspiring stories, and practical teachings that hold keys to transforming relationships, social structures, and humanity’s engagement with the planet.
You’ll hear inspiring personal stories from each speaker about how the power of mindfulness changed their lives. And, they’ll share unique examples of how mindfulness is being used to heal personal, cultural, and racial trauma.
You’ll learn to access your innate, authentic way of being in the world, embodying compassion, courage, and presence with every action.
Here’s a brief preview of what our inspiring speakers will be sharing with you…
Join Pamela Weiss as she stresses the importance of the feminine qualities of embodiment, intuition, nourishment, and connection as you walk the spiritual path.
Quiet your thoughts and shift into peaceful awareness with Amma Thanasanti as she provides insights on stress and change — and guides you in a short meditation.
Experience mindfulness, heartfulness, and Buddhist wisdom with Pascal Auclair — and submerge into these deeper forms of awareness to become balanced and feel freer.
Immerse yourself in nature-based mindfulness meditation practices with Mark Coleman, who will offer skilled guidance in how to open hearts and minds to the gifts and teachings of nature.
Ruth King will explain how rage sits at the crossroads of personal transformation… and, when embraced with awareness and compassion, can become an intimate and empathic teacher of stability and integrity.
Join the “resilience revolution” with Dr. Larry Ward — who’ll help you shift your focus to deeply embodied resilience and the cultivation of an enhanced nervous system.
Experience a deeper dimension of meditation and self-compassion during difficult moments while walking the dharma path, with James Baraz.
La Sarmiento will help you dissolve the deep conditioning of constantly needing to prove yourself, sharing empowering practices of mindfulness and self-compassion to transform feelings of insecurity and doubt into trust and self-acceptance.
Suzanne Bryant will convey teachings to equip you on your path to becoming a catalyst for others to embrace their authentic self.
And much more!
Become a Resilience Practitioner & Increase Your Capacity for Joy
Sometimes it’s that one unsettling comment, an unexpected tragedy, or an upsetting piece of information that sets the mind racing into turbulence and agitation, toppling the balance of your entire system.
That’s when your mindfulness and meditation training can help keep you grounded in equanimity, spaciousness, and the capacity to accept what is.
While there are many ways to get thrown off center, there are just as many ways to practice gradually building up your core resiliency over time. Meditation and mindfulness assist you in “practicing presence”— becoming skilled at shifting from states of feeling powerless to states of surrender and openness.
In this groundbreaking series, you’ll discover:
- How mindfulness can help you alchemize rage and glean the spiritual gold that lies beneath it
- Restored peace, renewed compassion for yourself and others, and greater tolerance of uncertainty and the unknown
- The feminine aspect of the Buddha's awakening, dismantling the hyper-masculine trope of awakening as a solo, heroic process
- How you can use mindfulness and meditation to unhook from the habit of self-attack
- The beauty of the “Indigenous Presence” meditation, which overlays the fundamental wellbeing qualities of Indigenous ceremony onto mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation
- “Heart fluency,” which brings your mindful attention to the fundamental and unlimited nourishing qualities already within you
- The spontaneous awakening of joy within you
- How to unlearn the habit of self-criticism and develop a greater capacity for kindness to your loved ones and others
- Concrete tools you can put into practice right away to lessen stress and anxiety, and help you tap into freedom and ease
- How benevolence, compassion, joy, and equanimity are the path to — and the expressions of — wisdom
- And much more...
Plus, you’ll receive many other insights and gifts from our extraordinary gathering of skilled teachers...
Sign up for the Mindfulness & Meditation Summit series, and find out how to transform your inner life into a beautiful garden of compassionate presence, peace, and courage that nourishes you in quiet moments and challenging moments alike.
You’ll be in good hands with series hosts Deborah Eden Tull and Kaira Jewel Lingo.
Each interview offers not just powerful teachings, but also models the power of individual and collectively shared presence. The hosts will share their practices and the quality of deep listening and receptivity that meditation cultivates.
They interviewed experts and pioneers in meditation and mindfulness from all walks of life — sharing actionable, practical tools you can start using immediately to create peace, foster joy, and prepare your body and mind for clear and courageous action.
