Let Go of the Limited Sense of Self
In this program you will continually discover how to let go of the habitual ways that you have learned to relate to yourself. The sense of identity that has always accompanied you through life, will gradually fall away. Letting go of the sense of self is like removing a heavy iron straight-jacket that you didn’t know you were wearing. You will stop experiencing through the lens of separation and enter direct contact with reality as it is.
Enter the Mystery of Not-Knowing
You will also be guided during this program to let go of any ideas you hold about anything. You will learn to simply let thoughts float past you without assuming they mean anything at all. Eventually you will enter the restful vast open space of non-conceptual awareness. You will stop trying to understand anything and you will discover what it truly means to relax and surrender.
Rest in the Miracle of Pure Awareness
Embody Your Essential Nature
How to Be Free is an invitation to embrace inherent freedom and immediate fulfillment. It is an exploration of a simple and obvious truth that is easy to understand, but very difficult to accept - you are already free, whole and fulfilled exactly the way you are right now.
We’ve all learned to think about ourselves and our lives in ways that leave us feeling perpetually incomplete and unfulfilled. We’ve been taught to look for happiness and fulfillment everywhere except the one place where it can actually be found, right here in the present moment.
In this book, Jeff Carreira will show you what it really means to live in the moment and how to be fully committed to life as it is. This is a book about inner freedom and spiritual liberation, and that means being free to live passionately, unselfconsciously, and wholeheartedly right now. It doesn’t mean life’s challenges will go away; it means life’s challenges can no longer stop you from being free.
In addition, on this year's retreat we will be working with the wisdom held in The Miracle of Meditation Oracle. This tool for divination authored by Jeff Carreira contains short transformative statements that have the power to shift our awareness. We will be using this deck throughout the retreat as a tool of divination that will take all of us in directions that none of us could predict.
The Miracle of Meditation Oracle is a tool for divination that allows us to tap into and illuminate the mystery of spirit. This deck is a guide to enlightened consciousness. The short and profound truths that each card contains have the power to shift our minds into a direct awareness of our luminous source.
When used sincerely with sensitivity and care in any circumstance, these cards will continually return our attention to that within us that is always already free, whole and fulfilled.

"My meditation experience was deeper than ever during this program. Some days I felt like I got swept up in the flow, like I was absorbed in life. No self-conscious concerns. I felt that what was happening was the most wonderful experience. I was in a place that I just wanted to stay in. I felt complete gratitude because there seemed to be a collective experience happening. I was at the still point; no push, no shove, just enough."
