Most spiritual seekers pursue a projected image of what awakening will look like. Yet, as Mukti points out, these images and pursuits detract us from experiencing wakefulness right now. Through a guided meditation, exercise, talk, and dialogues, Mukti illuminates the pure awareness that is not a projection and that expresses itself both as our own true face as well as the infinite myriad of faces of existence.

Talk Topics Include: The Wakefulness Already Present / Resting from the Managing of Experience / Sensing Your True Face / Freeing How We Divide Things

Q&A Topics Include: Approaches to Negative Thought Patterns / Grounding Unbalanced Energy / Bringing Heart Awareness to Pain

Quotes from this Download: “I want to shake out the idea of what awakening is, flush out the images and assumptions of awakening as a finish line, and see that which is present here and now.” • “Awareness is bearing witness to everything that arises and passes away, just like the space of the room that receives everything within it.” • “Often enlightenment is seen as going from point A to point B -- a place to reach. But instead, if we can come fully right here to point A, we can open to the wakefulness that’s already here, that doesn’t require striving or seeking.” • “When the one who is managing experiences rests, and the movement to manage can come to rest, there can be a great clarity and a greater chance to experience ourselves as awareness.”
