Spiritual Musings

Silent Retreat with Mooji’s Sangha

Hey y’all. I am so behind in updating this blog. Life has been quite busy. Lots of travel to report on and fabulous experiences with friends and family.  Over the past few months, I enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Delft, the Hague), excursions to the Hudson valley, New England (Massachusetts and Maine) as well as jaunts to New York City (where, among other things, I had the pleasure of meditating in Time Square, enjoying amazing vegan meals, being moved by musical and dance performances and meeting Savion Glover..)  And then there was last week’s retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, where, along with a group of friends — and about 1500 other buddies – we sat just a few feet away from him as he gave a Dharma talk and later led us in walking meditation.  It was an incredible day – and my second visit to Blue Cliff Monastery. Lots of pictures coming soon.  I hope.  Maybe.  I’m on sabbatical right now and have my hands full with writing articles and book chapters for my tenure file.  But as soon as I can, I’ll post those pictures. They’re beautiful.

But before I can properly update you, I’ll be fluttering away again — this time for a silent “retreat” with Mooji’s sangha.  I’d planned on attending this in person at the retreat site in Portugal, but things changed.  However, I am thrilled to report that I’ll be joining the group remotely, for a week long intensive.  In between writing, data analysis, work and meetings, I’ll participate in the live satsangs and reflect on whatever it is that Consciousness wants to reveal to me at this time.  I’m very excited.  For the next 7 days, we’ll be minimizing social activity and focusing our attention on awareness.

I’ll see you on the other side . . .

  1. I am delighted you have been blessed with the time and energy to be able to partake in as many spiritual gatherings as possible on top of so many other things your life experience takes you.
    I have been following Mooji’s pointings for a year now and freedom is here!

    With life and all it’s “choices” (career and otherwise) I’ve given myself to the spontainaity that my consciousness and awareness provides me. You have certainly inspired me to maintain that connection to real source. The Being Awareness that I am and always been.
    Keep shining brightly.
    Eric

  2. Are there any local gatherings to watch Mooji satsangs? Maybe in large USA cities? Mooji mentioned this, but there is not much about it on the Web…
