what is a sitting?
A sitting is a gathering where mutuality is uniquely practiced in the Trillium path. Sittings are held virtually and in-person, and generally include gazing meditation, discussion relevant to the embodied awakening process, and participant sharing. During the sharing time, you are invited to explore something important to you in your awakening or seeking process – particularly your current “edge” of growth or development or a place where you are stuck and want movement.
The teachers provide guidance and reflection, while honoring each person’s inner wisdom. The intention is to provide a supportive and trustworthy container in which participants are deeply met and seen in all their Infinite Radiance, as well as their very human limitations. As you share, the group listens consciously with their whole Being and without offering solutions or advice, which provides support and safety for you to come forth as your authentic self.
Openly feeling into the darkest portions of ourselves unexpectedly gives us the freedom to also deeply feel our spaciousness, gifts, and freedom. The energy and attention that has become stagnant from resisting these difficult feelings then give way to movement and become available for deeper inquiries and integration. Being held in mutuality, together with the teacher’s transmission of embodied consciousness, helps to quicken and deepen your embodied awakening.
In the context of awakened activism, these sittings will focus on our edges around participating ever more fully in life and offering ourselves in service.
what is whole-being realization?
Whole-Being Realization is awakening into non-separate conscious embodiment. Consciousness paradoxically fuses into feeling-union with the body-mind, becomes self-aware as the Core Paradox (of being both infinite and finite), and realizes its existential nature as the same essence with all that is. While this is a permanent shift of one’s experience of the ground of Being, it requires integration over time that may be categorized into early, middle and late stages for its fullness to be realized.
As you relax more fully into the discomfort of the Core Paradox of existing simultaneously as infinite and finite, divine and human, you recognize your identity has shifted to being this paradox. This fundamental shift may be gradual or sudden. It is often felt as a “landing” into self as never before, and actually changes your whole orientation to life.
Your sense of self is no longer exclusively identified as the finite body-mind, or as infinite Consciousness, but now incorporates the entire spectrum of being, which includes everything and excludes nothing. Whole being realization is just the beginning of an ever-deepening journey of awakening and integration which over time becomes an embodied awareness that’s stable amidst life’s fluctuations. This tacit knowing brings relaxation, openness, and well-being.
