Activation is something most of us have experienced at some point on our path. It happens when we allow ourselves to come under the influence of someone who has more access to the infinite reality of True Being than we do. When such a person also has the mysterious ability to activate our own innate awakened awareness they can reveal deeper dimensions of our own True Self to us.

In the great wisdom traditions, this activation was often referred to as transmission or initiation and it has always been considered an essential component of any path to awakening.

Although many of us have experienced our enlightened nature being activated by a more awakened human being, what we may not realize is that to truly become grounded in enlightened consciousness, most of us need regular reactivation until our own true nature becomes so apparent to us that we no longer lose touch with it in the midst of the challenges of daily life. For some of us, this reactivation needs to occur repeatedly over several years. For others, it may require decades to achieve stability.

This is why, in the great traditions of the past, the earnest disciple would often decide to leave the world behind to live in a monastery or ashram in the company of a spiritual master. This gave them the precious opportunity for the repeated activation that is so crucial to sustain an embodied awakening.

Activation continuously awakens our heart, mind and soul. And this, especially when coupled with regular meditation rooted in the Pillars of Profound Spiritual Practice, gives us the courage and strength to deeply embrace reality as it is and transcend our unconscious habits of existential struggle and resistance.

In the light of activation we realize, again and again, that we are already awake. We were awake before we were born, and we will continue to be awake after we die. Suddenly our energy and attention are liberated into a mystery beyond comprehension.

When we stop struggling with the way things are our consciousness soars into uncontainable freedom.

Most of us know deep down that we benefit in tangible and life-changing ways from spiritual activation. But, unfortunately, our cultures emphasis on independence and individualism often leads us to minimize the very real interdependencies that exist, including our potential to be positively and unalterably influenced by another human being.

Additionally, in modern life, most of us have few opportunities for the profound and regular reactivation we truly need to stabilize our awakening.

The monthly retreats in this program give you the opportunity to experience the repeated reactivation that you need to live a life of freedom and illumination. Craig and Jeff have both done decades of intensive spiritual practice that has given them each a solid grounding in the mystery of being.

Activation will occur during these events in two distinct but interrelated ways.

The first is through precise instruction and guidance leading you directly into an experience of awakened mind. By carefully directing your practice and responding to your questions, Jeff and Craig will guide your attention past false assumptions, limiting beliefs and unconscious habits into the subtle and direct recognition of your own true nature.

The second way activation will take place in this program is through a mysterious transmission of deep inner faith and conviction in the reality of our true nature. This subtle transmission of the truth of wholeness can occur in dialogue and in silence, but however it occurs, it is always unmistakable in its illuminating power and immediacy.

The activation that will occur on these retreats will not be limited to what Craig and Jeff bring into the field, but will include contributions from each of us. Many of the participants on this program will bring decades of spiritual practice and experience with them and together we will create a powerful activating field of awakened awareness.
