Amidst all of the complications and distractions of modern life, we are entrusted to remember that we are here for two fundamental reasons-to awaken to our intrinsic divinity, and to love in such a way that our presence here redeems the sorrows of life. There are two spiritual instincts that reside deep within our being. The first is the impulse toward transcendence, and the second is the instinct to experience the divine in and as the world of time and space. These two complementary impulses are the negative and positive poles of spirit working in tandem to reveal a more complete view of reality than either can on their own. This talk explores how these two dynamics of spirit work in tandem to open our eyes to our full potential.
Adyashanti, author of Falling into Grace, True Meditation, and The End of Your World, is an American-born spiritual teacher devoted to serving the awakening of all beings. His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence. Asked to teach in 1996 by his Zen teacher of 14 years, Adyashanti offers teachings that are free of any tradition or ideology. "The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine, but is open to all and found within all." Based in California, Adyashanti lives with his wife, Mukti, Associate Teacher of Open Gate Sangha. He teaches throughout North America and Europe, offering satsangs, weekend intensives, silent retreats, and a live internet radio broadcast. "Adyashanti" means primordial peace.
