We have been fortunate to have a variety of teaching opportunities this spring and summer, but it has been several months since I have held a discussion at this office. We will meet this Sunday (August 22) at my office (46 Riverside Dr. in Binghamton) at 3 pm for meditation and 4:15-5:45 teaching and discussion. I am still reflecting on the topic I want to consider, but this my current interest:
There has been remarkably little discussion of life after awakening. Adyashanti addressed this issue in his recent book and CD series (The End of Your World). Psychological and physical problems, energetic darkness and much more may well continue following even the most profound awakening. How do we recognize, learn from and release difficult patterns and experiences? Does clearing out the emotional debris of our minds facilitate awakening in those for whom it has not yet occurred? How is the essential psychological work required changed by awakened awareness-or is it?
As always, if you are interested in attending, please email me, as space is limited. The next silent retreat at Light on the Hill will be the week-end before Thanksgiving.
