My intention as Spiritual Leader of UNITY OF UKIAH is to inspire that spark of individual expression within each of us, using the principles of practical spirituality to replace the limiting beliefs and error thinking of the collective consciousness, creating a clear playing field of spontaneous, joyful, creative expression. The goal is to step off the karmic wheel, from cause & effect and fight/flight into spontaneous action, what the scientists are now calling the quantum field. In 2012 I believe Humanity moved from 10,000 years of karma into the quantum, an evolutionary shift that we are just beginning to comprehend and activate. 2017 can be a year of quantum leaps both individually and collectively. That is my vision. And, this is your invitation to join me!
Starting March 19 with THE PRESENCE PROCESS.
A Journey Into Present Moment Awareness
This will be the 10th time I’ve moved through THE PRESENCE PROCESS (the seventh time with a group). Why do I keep coming back (or I should say moving forward) through THE PRESENCE PROCESS? BECAUSE IT WORKS! The authentic movement I see in myself and others away from drama/karma and into life is amazing!
What I’ve come to expect from doing The Presence Process so many times is that the decision to move through the process or just to read the book sets the process in motion.
The Presence Process tell us “If it’s happening, it’s required.” and reminds us that our spiritual practice “is not about feeling better, it’s about getting better at feeling.” These statements embody the practices of non-resistance and emotional liberation, core principles of Buddhist teaching.
Thousands of years ago the Tibetan Buddhist invited us to step off the karmic wheel–to move from cause and effect into what they call spontaneous action–by allowing the emotions to self-liberate, to simply “be with the emotions without grasping or averting.” Sounds simple but not necessarily easy because the mental body has been programed to move into fight/flight whenever the emotional body gets triggered. We’ve learned to fix rather that feel. Reactionary fixing triggered by a fight/flight response creates more karma (more uncomfortable and unintegrated emotional baggage).
This ancient wisdom is at the very heart of THE PRESENCE. Couched in present-day language it’s a step-by-step process that foster a harmonious relationship between the mental and emotional bodies creating the space for the emotions to self-liberate.
Allowing the emotions to self-liberate, LIBERATES THE SELF. Limiting and negative patterns, behaviors and beliefs begin to melt away. Error thinking about ourselves and the world based in lack or not-enough is replaced by an awareness of ever-present support and abundance. A me-against-the-world consciousness that sees life and/or the self as a problem that needs to be fixed or solved is replace by Present Moment Awareness, an experience of connection and wholeness that encourages the spontaneous action that leads to authentic movement. In short, life becomes an adventure to be experience and savored rather that a problem to be solved.
