MuktiThis is an opportunity to discover and know exactly who we are ever more deeply. The deeper knowledge of being, our nature as spirit, or spirit incarnate in human expression, can be hidden or less conscious. So this is an opportunity to bring that into consciousness, a consciousness that registers not only in our mind, but in our body, heart, and whole being.

Think of this as an opportunity to really nurture the fullness of all that you are and bring that forward, especially with respect to the quality of being that cannot be contained in ideas or notions. The essence of being that I point to and support is something that can’t be contained in such notions, and yet has been present throughout the entirety of our lives.

There is a kind of open listening, open sensing, an innocent vantage point that’s not layered over by the conditioned learnings that we have. So one of the opportunities is just to let that sense of pure being shine and come forward more, in whatever ways it appears.

The San Francisco Airport (SFO) is also an option, although it is farther away (2 to 3 hours, depending on traffic).

When making flight arrangements for retreat, keep in mind that you must arrive on time (during registration on the first day) and stay through the end of retreat.

If necessary, consider arriving a day early and/or leaving the day after retreat ends.
