This relational online course will guide us back home to our deepest sense of being – that which lies beneath all of our self-conceptions and judgments.
During our 4 weeks together, Willa will help us to explore 4 ways of being: “The Way of Allowing,” “The Way of Metaphor,” “The Way of Recognition” and “The Way of Love.” We will practice these ways of being in our daily lives through pre-recorded video lessons, daily sitting meditation, meditation journaling, independent inquiry group meetings, and weekly LIVE teaching/practice sessions.
Practicing the 4 ways helps us to see beyond the thinking mind, to the one who witnesses. We will come to understand that this witness is not a “self” in a conventional sense; it is an innate awareness. It is a vivid receptivity. It is a loving gaze on all of experience, capable of melting a sense of separation into a sense of oneness.
