The Significance of self?

Last week we had some interesting discussions around “self significance” – and looking at it side by side with “it’s all about me.”

In our dialogues, we uncovered some remarkable seeming contradictions and subtle distinctions between those concepts.

(While voicing how curious it is to observe/ explore these ideas with words that don’t even begin to convey what people are trying to express!)  Have you had any further thoughts or insights about “big ‘s’/ little ‘s’ self ” significance or “big ‘m’/ little ‘m’ me” ??  Do you think making a distinction between self and Self/ me and Me is helping you to discern any deeper insights?

How about the idea that sometimes people feed their sense of self significance by making themselves “less than” others – treating themselves poorly to think well of themselves?

And who is this “self” about whose significance we wonder?!

a-n-d, We’re Back! :)

Have you been wondering where we went? !

Sometimes the weeks just go sweeping past in a moment! 🙂

A quick overview to catch up with the class, and then we’ll post some individual posts on the topics for last week and this week.

Last week, we looked at “self significance.”

This week, the topic is “what is real?”

And why the belated posts?

Last weekend we were honored and, quite literally, blessed, to be able to serve at both of Mother Meera’s darshans in Boston.

Sooo much wonderfulness!

October Series: (up to) The Five Ds (and counting?) :)

The Five “D”s: Dhyana, Dialogue, Deeksha and Dancing with the Divine

In response to frequent inquiries by people looking to have a deeper understanding of Deeksha and Oneness, we are offering a series of classes, being held on three Thursday evenings in October ( 14, 21, 28) and one in November (4), open to anyone who is interested in Deepening their experience of Oneness, and integrating Oneness more fully in their everyday lives. We will be sharing more tools and approaches you can use to help you ease into and through your transitions ever more gracefully, inviting more joy into your processes. You do NOT need to be a deeksha giver to attend this class. For deeksha givers, it will be a wonderful deepening opportunity.

This is not a “repeat” of the previous series – it will be a further deepening for people who have already attended a “3-Ds” course. At the same time, you do not have to attended the previous classes in order to attend this series.

Each evening will begin with a Dhyana (meditation), followed by a time for focused dialogue about the evening’s topic, and deeksha. Each class will be 2 ½ hours long. Fee for the series of four classes is $80. (reduced rate for Deeksha givers)

We are holding a free, ½ hour introduction/ orientation/ registration on Wednesday, October 13th, at 6:00 p.m. (There is a deeksha circle that begins at 6:30, you are welcome to stay for that, as well!) Please contact Elizabeth if you are interested in these classes. The October 13th session is REQUIRED if this is the first series you are attending, and open to anyone who wants more information about the series.
