Shift into Freedom: The Practice of Open Hearted Awareness
Two Registration Options: Live Classroom or Audio via the Internet
January 12 - March 15
10 Tuesday evenings 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
It’s possible to live within the same clarity, sense of oneness, inner freedom, and love realized by the world’s great meditation masters and mystics. You do this by learning how to shift your habitual identification as a small, solid, separate, ego to a deeper level of Being that is an open field of awareness. This deeper identity centered in the heart is always safe, loving, and free of fear. With this shift in awareness you can find an entirely new way of knowing, experiencing, and connecting with your inner self, your relationships, and the world around you, enriching your life in a continuous flow of awakened discovery.
Readings will be assigned from Shift Into Freedom by Loch Kelly. Participants should purchase their own copy of the book and begin reading before the first class.
To get the most out of this learning experience, class participants are strongly encouraged to attend the companion retreat, The Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness, described below. Take advantage of our combined registration discount when you sign up for both.

Audio recordings for the Level 2 class will be posted here.
