Asheville Spirituality, Satsang, Meditation
What is it to be in intimate relationship with the growing knowing of our deepest nature?
New Harbinger is publishing one of our members new books! Lynn Marie Lumiere has written an inspirational and informative book full of potent transmission, her own experiential wisdom, practical guidance, and interviews with spiritual teacher couples such as Adyashanti and Mukti, Ellen Emmet and Rupert Spira, as well as her psychotherapy clients and others.
In this gathering, Sara Naon will be speaking with Lynn Marie on how bringing awakened awareness directly into the depths of intimate relationships is the next step of ‘conscious relating’ - taking it to an entirely new level. “When we get into contact with the source of Love itself, it changes the game. We now have the infinite source of wisdom itself to navigate the challenges; along with the ever growing awareness that we are essentially the same thing.” ~ Lynn Marie Lumiere.
Awakened Relating addresses an important issue in our modern western awakening times, that deep seeing of our true nature and spiritual enlightenment does not, in fact, instantly resolve the deep seated emotional, interpersonal, and early childhood attachment wounding that cause problems in intimate relationships. Lynn Marie is passionate about providing teaching and practical instruction about applying awakened Truth within ourselves.
After interview and group discussion time, we will head into an experiential guided meditation on Lynn Marie’s three R’s of awakened relating.
Awakened Relationship begins with Recognizing awakened awareness, continues with continuously Resting as that, which turns into a deep commitment to Relying on it as we navigate the deep relational and psychological terrain of intimate relationship.
After this guided meditation there will be time to dialogue directly with Lynn Marie about your personal experience.
