“Initial waking-up leads to freedom from the fear of death. Waking into energetic embodiment leads to freedom from the fear of life. And waking-out to creativity and compassionate activity leads to freedom from the fear of love.” ~ Loch Kelly

The goal of meditation is awakening, which begins with a shift out of our small separate sense of self into spacious awake awareness. We have found that people can have glimpses of their awake nature of mind, but often feel like they “get it and lose it.”

How do we live a compassionate, awakened life? The key to embodiment is to discover the ordinary tantric level of awareness-energy: the awake ground of our being that is inseparable from the expressive energy that animates everything. This gives us the feeling of bliss-emptiness and the ability to connect openly with people from open-hearted awareness.

Awake energetic embodiment gives us the ability to be vulnerable and courageous. We can then connect deeply from effortless heart mindfulness, without being overwhelmed by other people’s emotional or energetic burdens.

Three-day retreat, suggested donation: $175
LIVE STREAMED: This event will also be live streamed and available on demand from Aspen Chapel website.

ORIGINS is a journey into where we came from. As we developed technology to help us survive we were able to thrive and develop our civilization. This progress has now pulled us out of balance with nature and is now making us ill and harming the planet.

The purpose of this film is to inspire everybody to choose a healthier lifestyle so we can preserve this planet for the generations to come. In order to understand how we can do this there’s, only one place to go: back to our origins.

Every single one of us can take steps right now to make our planet, our families, and ourselves much better.
