January 20: The Practice of Presence: Awakening to Your True Nature

Date: Friday, January 20.
Time: 7-8:30pm.
Location: New Renaissance Bookstore, 1338 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210
Cost: $15, (purchase ticket at the bookstore next door).

Seemingly every spiritual path affirms the pivotal importance of the practice of presence. We dwell in a metaphorical state of sleep. Our Presence slumbers, enthralled by the myriad of sensations, thoughts, feelings, and reactivities that typify eyeryday life. Spiritual awakening is awakening to and living as the Presence of our True Nature.

In this workshop, we will clarify the existential dilemma of our slumber. We’ll learn what the practice presence entails by surveying how different spiritual paths teach it. And hopefully, we will vivify your own commitment to awaken from your slumber to your True Nature.
