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

Feb 28 - Mar 04, 2016 Begins in 2 weeks
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?


Embodying Shakti: Awakening Sacred Power in your Body, Mind and Speech

Sep 04 - 09, 2016 Begins in 6 months
with Sally Kempton & Silvia Nakkach

In this highly practical retreat, two powerful teachers will initiate you into core sacred practices from the tantric traditions of goddess wisdom. Silvia Nakkach’s work with healing sounds, voice, and Indian ragas will combine with Sally Kempton’s meditative and mythopoetic teachings. “We’ll chant medicine melodies, move, meditate with deity qualities, and deepen our relationship with devotional sound,” the leaders write. “Contemplative practices will help to open your subtle body. This work can dissolve subtle energetic blocks and awaken sacred energies.
