Richard Miller won’t be coming back in 2015, so don’t miss this precious opportunity to learn directly from the founder of iRest!
Navigating the Landscape of Spiritual Awakening involves two essential movements, one that is evolutionary, that restores us to the realisation of our essential nature, and one that is involutionary, during which we learn to integrate our realisation into everyday life.
During the evolutionary phase of meditation, we recognise and experience our essential nature as nondual awareness, the ground of being from which the entire cosmos is born. Here we learn to abide as awareness, where all boundaries of separation, self, and other dissolve and we experience our birthright of peace, joy, well-being, and freedom from suffering.
During the involutionary phase of meditation, we learn how to embody our essential nature as awareness, equanimity and well-being amidst the ever-changing circumstances of our ordinary everyday life, in all our relationships with friends, lovers, children and co-workers, while we are at work, at play and at rest.
