Loch Kelly and Anna-Lisa Adelberg: Effortless Heart Mindfulness: Level Two Retreat

Loch Kelly and Anna-Lisa Adelberg: Effortless Mindfulness

This retreat is designed to provide support for living an awakened life. You will be introduced to ways to shift from head to heart-mind and learn to walk, talk, create, and relate from this new, loving operating system.
Many of us have had glimpses of the freedom from separate sense of self, which can be a powerful, but initial, “waking up.” Some consider this transcendent “not-dual” state the goal of awakening and can end up in a detached witness, a couch-potato stage, or continually “getting it and losing it.”

Just as there are helpful pointers to “waking up,” there are ways to support the unfolding of “waking-in” to an energetic embodied well-being and then “waking-out” to be able to create and compassionately relate to others. Each stage brings its own liberation. Waking up leads to freedom from the fear of death. Waking-in leads to freedom from the fear of life. Waking-out leads to freedom from the fear of love. We will learn contemporary versions of ancient wisdom practices in order to liberate shadow parts and shift from head to heart-mind. We will learn to navigate our consciousness through small glimpses of open-hearted awareness. From this intrinsic support, we can learn ways to energetically embody and live from the joy of effortless heart mindfulness.   

Please Note: This Level Two Retreat is designed for anyone who has listened to or read Shift Into Freedom or attended a previous event with Loch or Anna-Lisa.
