Living Meditation: Deepening & Integrating Practices with Lawrence Edwards, PhD

Living Meditation: Deepening & Integrating Practices

Living Meditation will take you into the rich meditative practices and teachings found at the most profound levels of the great spiritual traditions, where the ultimate state of non-dual awareness is all that exists. In this retreat you will learn to deepen and integrate meditation into everyday life, opening the mind and heart to non-dual awareness.
Living Meditation uplifts our home life, work, health and all that we engage in. Meditation begins as a set of practices and then the transformative power of meditation becomes apparent. We shed old conditioned patterns of mind that have us stuck.  The transformative processes of meditation develop and ripen, opening the boundless domain of the state of Living Meditation, also known as sahaja samadhi, in which the waking, dream and deep sleep states are illumined and transformed. 

In this retreat you will learn how to deepen your practices, further empower the transformative process of meditation and discover the state of radical freedom, the state of Living Meditation.  This is the state of the living Presence that already exists within you as your true nature.  Some call this their Buddha nature, or their Christ nature, or their Divine Self.  Whatever we call it, it is beyond words, beyond the mind, yet at the very heart of our Being.  Come to know your state of radical freedom, come to know the living presence of the divine within.
