Biography
In the mid-nineties, Isa began developing Depth Hypnosis as she entered into clinical practice. Her studies, both in academia and in the field, of cultural and linguistic anthropology, comparative religion, and transpersonal psychology formed the basis of her approach with clients and students. As the body of work that grew out of her clinical practice became larger, she began teaching others so that more people could benefit from the techniques she had developed. In order to accommodate the number of classes that grew out of this process, she co-founded the Foundation of the Sacred Stream, which is now a school for consciousness studies in Berkeley, California, serving hundreds of students each year. Isa teaches and speaks nationally and internationally, and she has published numerous articles, podcast episodes, and videos, and the book Return to the Great Mother. She maintains a private practice with institutions and individuals in Depth Hypnosis and Coming to Peace processes. Isa speaks five languages and has lived in eleven countries. She is the mother of two children and lives with her partner in San Francisco.

In this video, Eckhart Tolle acquaints us with the Peace which lies beyond thinking!

OCTOBER 4, 2017

How can we possibly play an integral role in global peace when our own world seems to be in such disarray? On the surface it seems a bad news story is permanently happening, and this filters into our day-to-day mindset. Not to despair we are here to share a beautiful insight to how we are making a contribution to good news! Our mindset not only shapes our own internal patterns and state of mind but also reflects how we relate to the outside world.

Each of us has our own unique life journey and how we interact with Mother Earth and each other. When we look outside, in many ways we see little progress towards serious issues that affect the planet and her citizens. Today, we are able to make a far more positive contribution, by reaching peace within our self.

Peace within conveys a particular energy to the outside world. After all, we are all part of the collective consciousness. When we make positive choices in our own lives, this immediately is converted into an energy, which ripples outward. As the energy flows outward, within us, we become far more aware and conscious of all that is.

A shift in consciousness is happening across the globe, yet we very rarely hear about it. Modern day technologies allow us to connect with other like-minded individuals, bypassing mainstream media. This is a tool that is being utilized far more, by awakened souls, to convey their messages. Switching off the television, or not reading the news, is one sure way to hook into the higher consciousness. In reality, not listening to the noise, allows our mind to seek something far more powerful.

Inner peace is not something that is achieved overnight; it is a process that, in many ways is a game. The game is played between the mind and heart/soul which is literally all within our self. We begin to reach the very core of our life, and remove anything that is not our own truth. Simultaneously, we open up to the powerful energies within, to truly transform our life path. It is a free will choice, as always, the way in which we choose to live our lives.

With so many imbalances in the world today, and the lack of true solutions by the powers that be, it is in our own power to make a change in the balance. Each day we can contribute to ending global poverty and other serious issues, by making an action. Whether that be to take a walk in a park to call in the energies of Mother Nature, or to make simple changes in our living habits. Taking responsibility for our own contribution is an assertion, that will impact others lives. As more of us make these conscious choices and focus on inner peace, rather than global peace, we are sending a message.

Inner peace sets us free from the mainstream but does not prevent us from living a normal productive life. In fact, our lives become full of positive manifestations and self-abundant. Maintaining inner peace will be a daily task and one that will represent the best investment ever. Dedicating time and energy to ourselves is an investment and one we shall make sooner rather than later.

The changes necessary all begin with our actions and choices on a daily basis, ones that will bring amazing returns and rewards. What better way to create a positive impact in our lives, and that of others. Positive changes that do not rely on money or technology – just our own true self! Reward yourself and others around the world, and invest a little time and energy towards Inner Peace. It will be the best investment you have ever made – because Inner Peace is a priceless commodity!

In this special Open Gate Sangha broadcast, Adyashanti and Mukti introduce our new Peace Room Project and its intentions. Together, they explore their shared commitment to bring forth teachings on the lived experience of being an embodiment of peace in the world.

Quotes from this Video:

“The enlightened view shows us that each thing and each being is of infinite value. Each being and each thing is a manifestation of God, of the divine, and when we really see this — not just as an idea or a concept — it’s a way of falling in love with the world, with all of its imperfections.” –Adyashanti

“A wonderful contemplation that relates directly to peace is ‘How might I orient in my life to a sense of what I regard as meaningful and precious?’” –Mukti

“The Peace Room is about how we interact with all of life, and bringing the more enlightened way of being into the world.” –Adyashanti

“One of my focuses is really to help those who are listening into a sense of attunement to what is valuable, into a journey of greater consciousness and direct experience, into knowledge through our being of what is important, and how to recognize that, nurture that, and bring it forward.” –Mukti

When we make peace our primary concern, explains Eckhart, we begin to free ourselves from the “problematic world” and open to higher consciousness.

What is the moment calling forth in you? What kind of response is life calling forth in you? Adyashanti explores the interplay between finding an inner resource of peace within and expecting the world to conform to your ideas of peace. By becoming the manifestation of whatever change you want to see in the world, you are redefining your expectations of the world, taking responsibility for your own life, and engaging with your spirituality in a truly deep and profound way. Adyashanti invites you into the space where this vital question can be a living inquiry in your day-to-day practice.

Video Excerpted From “Being an Expression of Peace” (ID #245):

Quotes from this Video:

“We are all most powerful and most benevolent when we are actually being whatever we want to see in the world. This is our first responsibility—to be what we want the world to become, or be the way that we would like human beings to be, interact, and engage with each other.”

“If you haven’t found the inner resource of clarity or peace or love or whatever you want to see in the world, then you’ll feel more on edge. Because you won’t be coming from being the change you want to see in the world. You’ll want the world to change so that you can be at peace, so that you can feel safe, secure, and loving.”

“In many respects, finding the right question is more important than an answer. If we think of answers in the sense of something that we are going to receive, that has some sort of final stamp of authority, that we can hold onto for the rest of our lives—that’s to misunderstand something very important about life, which is that life is a movement.”

“We human beings have the tendency to want to hold onto almost everything. If we get a revelatory experience, we tend to want to hold onto that and concretize it into a new system of thought or description of explanation. And as we are doing that, the flow of our lives is continuing on, and the next moment may call for a slightly different response.”

“To really be present for what life is calling forth in each of us is extremely important. Most people that are engaged in one form of spirituality or another, at least at a deep or inner level, part of what they’re valuing is peace, love, and clarity—and often there is a desire to see life as more whole or complete, and to experience your whole being in a clear and more complete way.”

“If we are engaged in a spiritual orientation, that comes with a kind of responsibility. The responsibility is: to be able to find within ourselves what we want to find or would desire to find in the world around us. Because if we can’t find it in ourselves, then we don’t have a whole lot of right demanding that the world conform to the way we want it to be.”

“Part of spirituality is taking that responsibility so that you become the manifestation of whatever change you want to see—you become it in your attitude, in the way you feel, in the way you move in the world, in the actions that you decide to take. This is really the heart of the spiritual life.”

“It’s so important that our spiritual life doesn’t become overly self-centered. It’s one of the dangers of a lot of inner work—that we can become so involved with our self that we are not really breathing out, we’re not engaged with our own lives and with our own existence, in a way that’s really fulfilling.”

“Our lives are the greatest gift we are ever going to give to the world.”

A short introduction to Amoda’s work.
Music by Kavi Jezzie Hockaday: ‘Rain Song.’

As human beings and especially as spiritual aspirants who search for enlightenment we want peace of mind and deep happiness, but disciple of Ramesh Balsekar and spiritual teacher Roger Castillo explains how seeking or longing for peace of mind creates exactly the opposite: suffering. This happens because we create an idea and an expectation that peace of mind has to happen and expectations are one of the roots of suffering. The solution to this, as Roger Castillo advice us, is to allow everything just as it is, including suffering.
