“Initial waking-up leads to freedom from the fear of death. Waking-in to energetic embodiment leads to freedom from the fear of life. And waking-out to creativity and compassionate activity leads to freedom from the fear of love.” ~ Loch Kelly
The goal of meditation is awakening, which begins with a shift out of our small separate sense of self into spacious awake awareness. We have found that people can have glimpses of their awake nature of mind, but often feel like they “get it and lose it.” How do we live a compassionate, awakened life? The key to embodiment is to discover the ordinary tantric level of awareness-energy: the awake ground of our being that is inseparable from the expressive energy that animates everything. This gives us the feeling of bliss-emptiness and the ability to connect openly with people from open-hearted awareness. Awake energetic embodiment gives us the ability to be vulnerable and courageous. We can then connect deeply from effortless heart mindfulness, without being overwhelmed by other people’s emotional or energetic burdens.
Anna-Lisa Adelberg brings a feminine approach to awakening, grounded in awareness-energy love and focuses on the embodiment of awakening in relational practices and in life. She is well known for her capacity to articulate and transmit the mechanics of subtle phenomena and her uncanny ability to help people feel this subtle dimension of their being. Loch's specialty is in helping people navigate the unfolding after initial awakening to live from open-hearted awareness in their everyday lives. Please join us for this unique in-depth retreat.
