Hello Dear Friends
You are warmly invited to join us for another Adyashanti DVD satsang gathering next Monday evening, 7th May at my place in Ocean Shores South.

I will be showing the DVD “Causeless Happiness” .

The pursuit of happiness outside ourselves can only lead to sorrow because anything attained can be lost. Even the search within ourselves can lead to suffering because of unconscious beliefs and misperceptions. In this incisive and playful satsang Adyashanti cuts to the heart of what’s really true and points to the causeless happiness that comes with knowing the sacred reality of who we are.
The DVD goes for about 90 mins.

We start at 7 pm with a short period of silence, so please arrive by 6.50 pm  to get settled. Satsang will finish somewhere around 8.45 pm.

Everyone is welcome.   Please ring or email to let me know you are coming, and if you have not been here before, let me know and I will send the address and directions.

A small donation is welcome to support these gatherings.

I look forward to seeing you there, it is always such a joy for me to share with friends of the heart

with love Grace

“True stillness happens when we see through the next thing the mind is creating” Adyashanti.

Hello Dear Friends
You are warmly invited to join us for our monthly Adyashanti DVD satsang gathering next Monday evening, 2nd April at my place in Ocean Shores South.

I will be showing the DVD “The Gift of Uncertainty” recorded in 2011.

This satsang is Adyashanti’s invitation to step beyond our limited, dream-like view of reality and enter the amazing realm of uncertainty. Though many spiritual seekers believe that ultimate satisfaction will come from knowing the truth of who they are, Adyashanti shows us how it’s opening to the unknown that actually gives us access to the profound wisdom, peace, and freedom we seek.

Topics Include:
•    A Fuller View of “Self-Centered”
•    Caught in the Dream State
•    Divine Discontent
•    The Illusion of Control
•    A Crack in the Veneer of Reality
•    Opening to Uncertainty
•    Courage for Inquiry
•    Connecting with Children

The DVD goes for about 90 mins.

We start at 7 pm with a short period of silence, so please arrive by 6.50 pm  to get settled. Satsang will finish somewhere around 8.45 pm.

Everyone is welcome.

Please use the contact page to let me know you are coming, and if you have not been here before, let me know and I will send the address and directions.

A small donation is welcome to support these gatherings.

Much love, Grace

Dear Reader – You are warmly invited to the next DVD satsang gathering, next Monday evening – 5th March,  7pm – 9pm in Ocean Shores.   We  will be showing a DVD of Adyashanti entitled “The Full Aliveness of Being” recorded in August 2010.

“Many people engage in spirituality with a grasping energy to acquire beliefs, attain experiences or become somebody.  Yet it is this seeking mind that actually prevents our direct perception of what we already are.”  In this enlivening satsang, Adyashanti reveals a different way of listening and perceiving that can help us recognize what doesn’t need to be acquired”

If you are new to Adyashanti’s  teachings, you may find, as I have, that his simplicity, freshness and originality  in unravelling the journey of spiritual awakening and beyond is quite unique.  While honouring his Zen lineage, he also stresses the importance of not relying on any teacher, and instead looking to our direct experience and fearlessly exploring our own lives.  The author of “The End of your World”, “Emptiness Dancing” and “True Meditation”, Adyashanti dares all seekers of peace and freedom to take the possibility of liberation in this lifetime seriously!

Please arrive at 6.50pm to get settled before we begin at 7 pm.  Thank you

Please  send a message via the contact page if you would like to join us – or join up on the Meet-Up group – http://www.meetup.com/thebyronbayadvaitaand nondualmeetupgroup

Warm regards,
