As we connect to this Ground of Being, what we discover is our original innocence wherein every moment feels like a new creation, like something that has never been before.” ~ Adyashanti, The Rediscovery of Innocence
April 2022 News & Offerings
Spring Renewal
Robin's eggs
With its long-awaited infusion of sunlight and warmth, the advent of spring is naturally accompanied by a palpable sense of renewal and rebirth. Spring can bring fresh insight and provide an opportunity to revisit and potentially reignite our personal spiritual practice. With fresh beginnings in mind, this month’s newsletter will focus on revisiting some of Adyashanti and Mukti’s foundational teachings, including a new article by Mukti, plus complimentary downloads and video teachings, and product recommendations.
We are also excited to feature Shining the Light of Awareness in Our World, a three-day weekend online retreat with Mukti, being held April 2224. Registration is now open—details below!
“The green sprout, symbolic of spring, grows toward the light because it is its nature to do so. It does so without any gaining idea. Being free of gaining ideas is an expression of beginner’s mind.” ~ Mukti
“Because it is a timeless state of only the eternal Now, the Ground of Being sees through the eyes of eternity and feels through the constant renewal of the senses.” ~ Adyashanti

Doorways to Realizations

Mukti speaks to the relative and absolute tracks of this journey and to the key inquiries that open doors to facets of self-realization. Learn which doorways may most deepen your realization and serve the integrated expression of your spirit and human natures.
