One Mind isn’t in this endless game in search of the right experience—it’s just seeing everything as an expression of itself.” ~ Adyashanti, One Mind

Ending Seeking
Mushrooms on forest floor
To lay the groundwork for awakening, we must first let go of seeking and struggling. We often assume that something needs to change for us to experience true peace and freedom. But imagine for a moment that this isn’t true. What would it be like if you didn’t need to make an effort to search for truth and happiness?

This month, we feature video teachings by Adyashanti and Mukti, in which they offer pointers toward the recognition that what you are seeking is already immediately present in your experience.

Also in this month’s issue you will find complimentary downloads relating to our monthly theme, Ending Seeking, as well as highlights about Adya’s upcoming six-week online retreat, A Revolution of Being ~ 2021.
At any given moment, there is something in your immediate experience of being that is unborn. In this video entitled, The Immediacy of Being, Adyashanti redirects our focus away from what we are looking for, and instead toward where we are looking from. In this process, we discover the difference between what we are conscious of, and consciousness itself.
In this video entitled, An Attitude of Curiosity, Mukti explores the nature of wanting, where it originates, and how to trace this energy back to its source. By bringing an attitude of curiosity to your inquiry, you are afforded the freedom for your answers to be innocently discovered. Exploring this within your own experience offers the opportunity to transform this energy into a peaceful sense of being.

In-Person Programs and Retreats

We will resume offering in-person programs when we feel confident that we can provide an environment that encourages openness and a feeling of safety, where people can comfortably share lodging and dining together, and in which we can gather safely in close proximity to each other. For now, we will continue to monitor news and information regarding public health concerns. When we feel ready to add an in-person program to the calendar, it will be announced via email in our monthly newsletter and published on the calendar page of our website.
Visit Adyashanti’s and Mukti’s Teachings pages to access their complimentary introductory teachings, new and selected teachings, videos, audio recordings, and writings.

The you” who is chasing enlightenment will never become enlightened. This engaging and classic satsang reveals the futility of striving and illuminates the simplicity of Oneness.
