During this silent virtual retreat you have the chance to explore meditation in a whole new way. Often when exploring meditation we focus on the instructions for the practice, in other words on how we are doing the practice.

On this retreat we will focus on the other critical aspect of meditation - who is doing the practice. We don’t just meditate, we meditate as someone and whatever self-identity we are meditating from has certain potentials and limitations inherent in it.

On this retreat you will discover how to shift your identity and meditate from an entirely new place.

I am thrilled to be offering this retreat because these four days I intend to share one of the most profound shifts in perspective I have ever experienced - meditating from a cosmic identity.

From the start of this retreat you will be asked not to meditate as yourself, and instead to shift into a cosmic sense of self. It will not be you meditating, but rather it will be the universe who is meditating and you will realize that you are a cosmic being.

There is no way to describe the profound experience this shift in perspective will have on your practice, and it will not be easy to hold. You will undoubtedly slip back into your normal identity over and over again, but with time and practice, you will come to rest for longer and longer periods of time in the direct recognition that you are the cosmos.

On this retreat we will spend 8 hours each day together. You will receive detailed guidance for attaining and maintaining this shift in awareness and you will have many hours to rest in a new perception. At the end of each day I will respond to questions so that we can refine our practice.

I do not believe that there can be any more powerful way to meditate than from the vast foundation of a cosmic identity.

I hope you will join me.

Sincerely,

What We Will Explore on this Retreat
 
Thursday, November 17th, 2022
Embracing Cosmic Identity
During our first day we will explore how to meditate from a cosmic identity. We will recognize the true source of our awareness as the energy and intelligence of the cosmos itself and engage with our practice as a truly cosmic being.
Friday, November 18th, 2022:
Meditating as the Cosmos
During our second day we will let go of our separate sense of self and allow the cosmos to meditate through us. By ceasing to hold onto any limited identity we surrender our practice to the cosmos and unleash its full transformative power.
 
 
Saturday, November 19th, 2022:
Embodying Cosmic Being
In our third session we see that every aspect of our mind, body and soul, and even our limited sense of self, are all part of the great adventure of cosmic emergence. In our practice we sit in the immediate realization that we are the cosmos.
Sunday, November 20th, 2022:
Embracing Cosmic Destiny
During our fourth session we see that our spiritual path has always been about the universe waking up to its own existence through us. As we relax into this realization we see that our journey has always been leading toward a cosmic emergence.

What past retreat participants said about their experience...

"We were able to only do three days of this event. But the impact for me was most profound. On our day 4, integration day an awareness of the Truth arose in me and left me totally flummoxed. Just what I have been working for, for so many years. I am truly a different person than the one who started the retreat last Friday. Profound gratitude to Jeff and the team."

~ W. Francis.

"The daily teaching, Q&A's and and meditation sessions were so powerful, they brought such calm and flow to me and in turn to my family. Jeff's teaching enabled me reach greater depth in my meditations as each day passed."

~ T. Bird.

"Jeff’s instructions and felt his passion to lead us into a available view of the world and ourselves. My life is so completely different. I’m looking out with Cosmic Eyes now... Wow So simple and so wonderful. Thank you."

~ N. Torrence.

"This retreat was a wonderful and profound experience of sinking into the depth of Being. Experiencing blissful happiness and liberation, just abiding there, without needing anything. Even in the face of challenges from outside, like a noisy neighourhood."

~ J. van den Bogaard.

"The retreat came at the perfect time in my life. It was the calm at the end of an internal and external storm that led to deep insights and deepening Awareness of my True Self. Jeff has an ability to transmit deep truths that find a home in soul."

~ M. Earlenbaugh.

"The retreat was eye opening and life-changing, giving me a new understanding of me as a soul, and deepening my relationship with it. Giving all day to meditation for a few days, rather than an hour a day for a prolonged period, has brought changes in me that are indescribable. I did not want it end!"

~ J. Aebi.

The Most Frequently Asked Question
Can I still do this retreat if:
  • …there are other people living in my house?
  • …I will need to take care of my children?
  • …I won’t be able to do all of the retreat?
  • …I will need to do some work in the evenings?

Essentially, people want to know if this virtual retreat can be customized to fit their schedule and needs, and the answer is yes, it can be, and I want to explain a little more about how.

First of all let me explain how the retreat will work.

I will be online with you for 8 hours a day, from Thursday, November 17th - Sunday, November 20th, 2022.

I will start the day with teachings and instructions, I will end the day with a Q & A session, and in between we will meditate together.

Now to give a more detailed answer to the question above:

If you can devote yourself entirely to the virtual retreat from Thursday, November 17th - Sunday, November 20th, 2022, then I suggest you do. That means unplugging your phone, remaining in silence, and doing extra practice around the 8-hours with me. You will receive detailed instructions for how to best organize your time as the retreat draws nearer.

I realize that many of us just can’t devote that much time and attention, but you can still get tremendous benefit from the retreat while accommodating responsibilities and family.

Variation 1:
You can do just the 8 hours a day live with me for four days and take care of other responsibilities around that. You would stay in silence during the 8 hours with me, and speak as necessary outside of that.

Variation 2:
You can listen live to the teaching session and/or Q and A session with me, and do as much (or as little) meditation as you can in addition to that.

Variation 3:
You will get the recording of both the teaching session and Q and A session with me each day, so you can listen to them whenever it works for you, or do the entire retreat over again at your convenience.

Any variation of the retreat can be profound and even life-transforming, especially when you keep one critical guideline in mind - commit to the retreat you’re doing and don’t worry about it.

If you need to do work, or take care of children, or anything else while doing the retreat, just do it and don’t worry about it. Taking care of your responsibilities doesn’t have to have any negative impact on your retreat, as long as you don’t worry about it.

If there are things you need to do outside of the retreat, even if they involve talking, just do what you need to, as fully as you can, and then return to the retreat without giving it another thought. As long as you don’t make a problem out of it, these activities won’t mean a thing. In fact one of the great insights you could get from doing the retreat would be the realization that nothing can disturb your retreat if you don’t let it.

These thoughts should answer any questions you might have about accommodating this retreat to fit your schedule.
