Adyashanti – The Continuous Commitment of Retreat

Published on 14 Jun 2018
Imagine what it would be like if the experience of a residential retreat continued after the retreat. Adyashanti explores how the commitment we make during retreat can be a lifetime choice. By bringing an ongoing commitment to your spiritual life, and applying that daily, you are able to create a profound and beautiful life.

Excerpted from “The Edge of Your Own Evolution”:

Quotes from this Video:

“Retreat is a state of mind. It’s a commitment. When you sign up for a retreat, you’ve made a statement that whatever the retreat represents for you is the most important thing that you could be doing for that particular week.”

“Imagine that retreat never ended. That retreat was, in essence, a lifetime commitment. Then you’re really onto something powerful. Then your spirituality isn’t segmented into this little corner of your life.”

Awakened Relating: A Guide to Embodying Undivided Love in Intimate Relationships by Lynn Marie Lumiere MFT (Author)

Our natural state is to love and be loved. From deep within, we’re compelled to seek connection. Yet relationships remain a struggle—even for the most spiritually enlightened among us. Traumatic experiences, insecure attachment, and especially the false but commonly held belief that we are separate, both from each other and from the love we seek, can cause endless problems in relationships. As long as our connections are built on this untruth, lasting love and harmony in relationship will elude us. Awakened Relating can help.

Written by a licensed therapist and pioneer in bringing the most direct teachings of non-duality into the practice of psychotherapy, this book offers practical guidance for improving relationships through “awakened relating”—a more enlightened experience of falling in love, communication, conflict resolution, and sexuality. With examples, guidelines, and experiential inquiries for realizing your true nature, this book will dispel common myths and mistaken beliefs about intimacy and help you cultivate a loving relationship with yourself and others.

Including inspirational stories of people who practice awakened relating in their own lives, this book will show you how to identify, transform, and resolve the deep psychological issues that prevent you from having the harmonious, loving relationships you seek. Now is the time to realize the deep and ever-present love that exists within and all around you.

Lynn Marie Lumiere, MFT, is a seasoned psychotherapist with a focus on transforming issues at their source through dissolving the belief in separation that creates and sustains them. She is dedicated to awakening consciousness and meeting life’s challenges as doorways to greater freedom. Her work is sourced in over forty years of dedicated spiritual and psychological exploration, as well as almost thirty years of marriage and practicing psychotherapy. This experience led her to the understanding that no matter what the problem, transformation and freedom from suffering is possible when we tap into the infinite and ever-present source of Love. She has been especially interested in applying this understanding to healing relationships and trauma.

Lynn Marie has been involved in the exploration of non-dual wisdom and psychotherapy since it began in 1998. She is a repeat presenter at the annual Nondual Wisdom and Psychology Conference and the Science and Nonduality (SAND) Conference, and is a contributing author to The Sacred Mirror. Lynn Marie is also coauthor (with John Lumiere-Wins) of The Awakening West. Her primary spiritual teacher is Adyashanti, and she has studied with many other teachers from non-dual, Buddhist, and Hindu traditions. She lives in Grass Valley, CA.

A Duet of One: Nonduality and Intimate Relating, Lynn Marie Lumiere

True intimacy is the One celebrating itself as two. There is nothing more intimate than directly knowing that we are one Being and consciously sharing that together. Although we all long for this intimate union, it cannot be found through relationship or sexuality that is based on a belief in separation and duality. In order to experience true love and intimacy we must come to know our nondual nature and begin to embody that in our relating. This presentation will explore how to embody nondual realization in intimate relationship in practical, real life ways, such as bringing nondual understanding into communication and conflict. The
root cause of all relational disharmony can be traced to the belief in duality, which leads us to seek love outside our self in others. Once the source of the problem is known and true love is awakened within us, it is possible to fully resolve relational issues related to our wounding and conditioning. When we bring the whole truth, absolute and relative, to our relating, relationship becomes a joyful meeting in our shared Being with a vast potential for further healing and awakening.

Adyashanti – The Root Cause of Suffering


What would it be like to not be attached to your ideas, beliefs, and opinions? Without dismissing your beliefs, you can take a step back, and not be so limited and restricted by them. Adyashanti looks afresh at attachment, the suffering it creates, and offers up an open stance of being.

Quotes from this Video:

“We all know that in almost every form of spirituality, attachment is seen as an essential difficulty. It’s one of the root causes of not only suffering for our self, but also the way we project the suffering out into the world.”

“We all know what it’s like to be attached to our own ideas, our own opinions, our point of view. To be attached doesn’t mean to simply have a point of view. You can have a point of view, you can have a belief, you can have an opinion–without being attached to it. It’s pretty rare, but it’s possible.”

Tina RasmussenLiving The Enlightenment Drive’ Interview by Renate McNay

Tina teaches Jhana Meditation and helps students recognise their deeper nature, both on the cushion and in daily life. She wrote the book “Practicing the Jhanas” with her teaching partner Stephen Snyder. She also worked as an organisation development consultant and coach for more the 25 years and published several books on humanistic business practices.

Tina learned to meditate at age 13 and had been attending long silent meditation retreats. For years she practiced in Buddhist and Non-Dual traditions. She had a natural talent for concentration meditation and undertook an intensive year-long solo retreat during which a profound awakening to true nature occurred. 

After life-changing experiences Tina felt the strong pull to become a “cave yogi” but as the awakening matured, it was compelling to her to function in the world from an awakened perspective. 

She was the first Western Women who completed the entire Samatha path including the eight Jhanas and was authorised to teach by Burmese meditation Master Ven.Pa Auk Sayadaw. She is also practicing the “Diamond Approach” by H. A. Almaas. http://www.awakeningdharma.com

Adyashanti: The Paradox of Unity and Spiritual Autonomy


Published on Mar 13, 2018

Adyashanti talks about the changes that arise when the psychological self is seen for what it is, when the sorrow of becoming falls away into effortless being, when the heart starts to come online and the will is finally understood by its absence. A deep paradox arises, the understanding that we are one, and the realization that each individual is unique in itself and unspeakably valuable. This spiritual autonomy has an endless capacity to express itself through its humanity and can become a redemptive presence in the world, helping us all remember who we are.

Adyashanti – The Great Truth of the Unknown

Adyashanti invites you to shed all ideas of what you think you are, including your spiritual worldview that the ego often identifies with. As your worldview drops away and you fully experience the unknown, a great truth and vitality can flower and move you in a way that is not in rejection of life.

Adyashanti – Enlightened Action

Where does enlightened action originate from and how does it express itself? Adyashanti explores the connection between self-consciousness and enlightened action, and how by allowing yourself to be in the flow with existence, you can relieve yourself of all unnecessary suffering.

Video Excerpted from “The Existential Paradox of You”:
http://bit.ly/2CFr6p3

Quotes from this Video:

“Enlightened action is action that is not distorted by one’s self. It feels clean, instantaneous, unpremeditated, and unselfconscious.”

“Self-consciousness is, for most people, part of every moment — whether you’re concerned about how you’ll be perceived, or you’re worried about how you’re perceiving yourself.”

“How you are perceiving yourself is usually the harshest critic you’ll ever run into.”

“In the gap where self-consciousness grows is where all forms of unnecessary suffering happens.”

Know That Whatever You Are Perceiving In This Moment Is You ~ Francis Lucille


The perception and the Reality of the perception are one.
