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.”
