SAND Presents: Continuous Awakening - Nonduality in the Midst of Life

Feb 28 - Mar 04, 2016 Begins in 6 months
with Sally Kempton, Jeff Foster, Rupert Spira, Peter Russell, Dorothy Hunt, Ellen Emmet & Helen Palmer

Many of us have experienced some form of realization and are beginning to recognize ourselves as awareness. What does it take for our understanding to fully penetrate body and mind and to be lived as a permanent reality, fully embodied in the world? Is there a process of unfolding and stabilizing of our nondual understanding? What is awakening in the midst of daily life and relationships? While life expresses itself in continuous flux of perceptions, feelings, thoughts, and experience, how do we remember and know ourselves as pure awareness?
