Hello, everybody!

To be free of the endless commenting, reviewing, anticipating, and frequent chaos in the mind, a remarkably effective strategy is to shift the focus of awareness from thoughts and emotions into the immediate sensory experience of what is seen, heard and felt in the immediate here-and-now. Bring attention to your body and the physical world around you. Include in this special attention to the sensations of breathing. Do this for fifteen to thirty seconds and see if you don’t experience a…


Wake up

Posted by Alaya Dickinson on March 16, 2016 at 4:23pm 0 Comments

Question your beliefs, perspectives, ideas, feelings and inquire with a open heart into what manifests them.  Allow them to un-manifest. What remains is stillness, presence and love. The is the natural state of who you are. Every moment provides you with the opportunity to wake up.  You don't have to be on a mountain top to find what you need.  All is already here and showing up in your regular life.  The invitation is always here, always arising and pointing you within, pointing you…

It's also time to register for February's Sunday Satsangs. Come join us at Peace...

Where is This Thing Going?

Posted by Trey Carland on January 17, 2016 at 8:09pm 0 Comments

Like most people, I find myself caught in repetitive thinking from time to time. It’s usually about something that I need to do in the future, and can be rather bothersome. For example, when I’m laying in bed thinking about something I think I need to do in the future. Obviously there are times when you may need to think ahead or plan, but we tend to get stuck in overthinking things that are really of no importance in the grand scheme of things. It may be helpful to ask yourself, “Can…

What does it mean to meet something?

   In Satsang we often talk about "what's going on".  This is the way my teacher Neelam would often speak to others and I remember feeling very confused and very frustrated by the question.  Over time as I heard and opened deeply to these words I was able to see changes in my perspective and experience of what was going on-slowly realizing she was always pointing me into was was going on inside of me at that moment. At first it was all a mind story as I would circle thoughts and be taken into…See More

“How We Deny Ourselves Love“ at Well Being Conference Center

July 15, 2016 at 5pm to July 17, 2016 at 1pm
The immensity of love is ever-present, but we somehow find this birthright elusive. It doesn’t sound possible and yet we do it all the time. We have only to drop our denial of love’s presence and it is there in abundance. It is there already. We don’t need to manifest it. We just need to clear away a little debris and watch it bloom. A $60 per person donation is suggested and we ask that you bring and prepare one meal. We typically have 10 – 15 people attending. The format will include silent…See More
