Philosophy Focus = Unlocking the Ego
Is the ego truly an obstacle that needs to be overcome? Or could it also be an extraordinarily useful tool for the transformation of consciousness? The Non-Dual Kashmir Shaiva Tantric tradition brings forth the idea that all manifesting things are an expression of Consciousness itself. The concept of the human ego gets caught in misunderstanding between non-dualistic and dualistic traditions as the views on the functionality of the ego differ between the two. Join Catherine in unlocking a higher understanding and perspective of your ego as explained by these ancient traditions via the Non-Dual Shaiva teachings and it’s role in your spiritual path.
After the Intensive
Students interested in learning about Neelakantha Meditation have an opportunity to join Catherine on Sunday and Monday (June 9 & 10) to learn about and receive a formal meditation practice. One of the primary teachings in the Non-dual Kashmir Shaiva tradition is the necessity for the synergy of both knowledge and experience. It is wonderful to experience intellectually what these wisdom traditions say about consciousness and you must also experience it in meditation and life to fully understand. Join Catherine for two days of personal instruction into Neelakantha Meditation where you can formally begin an effortless practice and experience the movement of your own awareness into the depths of consciousness.
