The Mystery of Being
Within each of our forms lies the existential mystery of being. Apart from one's physical appearance, personality, gender, history, occupation, hopes and dreams, comings and goings, there lies an eerie silence, an abyss of stillness charged with an etheric presence. For all of our anxious business and obsession with triviality, we cannot completely deny this phantasmal essence at our core. And yet we do everything we can to avoid its stillness, its silence, its utter emptiness, and radiant intimacy.
Being is that which disturbs our insistence on remaining in the life-numbing realm of our secret desperation. It is the itch that cannot be scratched, the whisper that will not be denied. There is only being living itself through you, as you, and as all that exists.
Join Adyashanti in this exploration of bringing to life the flowering of a living and undivided eexpression of being. During this weekend retreat, you will participate in talks, guided and silent meditations, question-and-answer dialogue sessions, and enjoy the beauty and supportive environment of 1440.
