Open Meeting-Satsang with Jared - Thursday 22nd August 2019

This open meeting (or Satsang) with teacher Jared Franks is an opportunity to get a taste of retreating from the noise of the world, to turn your attention inwards and to discover the source of the thought “I.”  Jared's invitation is to stop where you are, and discover what is already here, already awake, alive and shining with intelligence and love. This is who you are. No thought can capture it, or touch it, or keep it or use it. It is as it is.

Silence in the world is rare, and yet we all crave it. Peace, quiet and rest give us the opportunity to allow ourselves to simply be as we are, without trying to be anyone in particular. To rest as yourself is to discover yourself as peace itself. When the outside world is retreated from, even for a few days, you can discover what is untouched by noise and movement. Your own presence, your own Being, is already quiet, already at rest, and is only waiting for you to rediscover yourself and become completely in alignment with yourself. Jared

Meeting starts promptly at 7pm.  Registration is from 6 - 6.30pm. $20 at the door.  There is also likely, the opportunity to attend the following 3 days of silent retreat if you feel moved to do so.
