May 12 – 14, 2017
Berkeley, California

This 3-day retreat is open to anyone with a sincere intention to share nondual awareness with others. If you are a teacher, therapist, healer, entrepreneur, artist, or unclassifiable agent of awareness, please join us! We will explore how consciousness connects us — individually and collectively — with session topics including:

  • Unconditioned Connection
  • Awakening to Divine Abundance
  • Beyond Authenticity: An Exploration of Nondual Relating
  • Secret Agents of Awareness – Undercover Interviews
  • Awakening, Deep Listening, and The Tapestry of Being
  • Into the Heart of Sexuality
  • The Intimacy of Contact Awareness
  • Attuning, Stabilizing, Exploring Through Intimate Relationship

. . . and a participatory exploration of Communities of Consciousness with the pioneering founders of SAND, Nondual Wisdom & Psychology, and Open Circle Center. The Communities of Consciousness session only will be a public offering, open to the broader community as well as retreat participants.
