  • Isaac Shapiro ~ *Worldwide Web-satsang*

    Isaac_from his website_2014_08-23

    Isaac helps us inquire into how we live our lives moment by moment, and how to better align ourselves with the deepest spiritual truths. He works through direct but good-humored questioning, reflecting back to us, and helping to unravel, the conditioning of the mind and the nervous system, allowing a deeper participation in the moment. -- "An invitation to recognize the Truth of your self, who you are and have always been. As you are already This, there is no need for any effort or "getting there", just the simple recognition of That in which everything appears."...

    Joan Tollifson_Laughing_!cid_image0

    This event with Joan will invite an open exploration of the living reality Here / Now. Joan’s bare-bones approach is simple, direct and down-to-earth. She points beyond concepts and beliefs to the immediacy of direct knowing and being. Instead of a search for self-improvement or a future attainment, this is about being awake to what is, here and now. Joan has roots in Buddhism, Advaita and other forms of non-duality, but she belongs to no formal tradition. Joan is the author of Nothing to Grasp; Painting the Sidewalk with Water: Talks and Dialogs about Nonduality; Awake in the Heartland: The Ecstasy of What Is; and Bare-Bones Meditation: Waking Up from the Story of My Life. Joan currently lives in Southern Oregon....

  • Susanne Marie ~ The Cosmic Body

    Susanne Marie 200x300

    A lifelong spiritual explorer, Susanne Marie offers a space of meeting in the unconditional nature of the heart, where our own humanity is celebrated as the divine, and where nothing is left out. Her work is transformational and empowering, as she points to the remembering of what we have always been, allowing truth to become ever more conscious of itself in a human life. In a relaxed, empathetic and personable manner, and with deep personal insight, humor, and grace, she helps others deconstruct their beliefs of what living a life of freedom looks like. Susanne, who is the parent of two teenagers, lives in Northern California and offers spiritual mentoring to those who feel called to work with her....

  • John de Ruiter ~ The Intelligence of Love

    John DeRuiter_sml

    We are excited to welcome back to the US the celebrated Canadian teacher John de Ruiter. Raised on the prairies of Alberta, John experienced a powerful awakening at age 17 that left him hungry to permanently realize its truth, which he did several years later, after much exacting inner investigation. At first his ministry found expression through the local Christian community, including seminary study and pastoral work, but, over time, it became clear that he needed to work outside of any traditional structure. Over the years John has amassed a large following, and is known for his powerful meetings, deep transmission, and a clear and original style of teaching that emphasizes open-heartedness and “core-splitting honesty”. An avid outdoorsman, he is also the founder of the College of Integrated Philosophy in Edmonton, and the author of Unveiling Reality and The Intelligence of Love....
