You do not need to know what is happening, or where it is all going.
What you need to recognize are the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment,
And to embrace them with courage, faith and love.
The world is transparent and the Divine is shining through all the time”.
Join Miranda from the comfort and safety of your own home for this 5 day virtual retreat called WAKE UP AND LOVE: Embodying Grace in Challenging Times which will be delivered via Zoom.
Living from a consciousness of real love in each moment is surely the core curriculum of being human and the most important fruit of spiritual practice. It calls us to wake up out habitual ways of being and relating, and bring every defense to the light of unconditional awareness. This retreat is dedicated to liberating you from the unnecessary bondage of your story, and in particular, how that story plays out in your most important relationships and way of being in the world. Gain greater precision on your path and deepen your capacity to embody the love you are.
These five days together will provide a safe container to dive within and let our personal, relational and collective confusions unwind in a ground of grace.
Miranda Macpherson is a contemporary spiritual teacher, counselor, and author of
The Way of Grace: The Transforming Power of Ego Relaxation and Boundless Love,Meditations on Boundless Love (an audiobook). She has been teaching internationally since 1995 and is known for her depth of presence and refined capacity to guide people into direct experience of the sacred. Miranda’s work is a synthesis of self-inquiry, spiritual psychology, devotion, and meditation practice offered with feminine grace that embraces the totality of our human experience as a gateway into the depths of our true nature.
Together, we will journey through the most important themes of your life, into the unending ocean of clarity, kindness, compassion, courage, fulfillment, and joy within you. Taking our seat in the Boundless Love of our true identity, we will explore what it takes to relate and move through daily life from this depth of being.
Through holistic self-inquiry, meditation and devotion we will explore:
* Facing what scares you with curiosity and compassion.
* Receiving love – accessing spiritual nourishment.
* Embracing your life circumstances as a divine curriculum.
* Abiding into the non-dual condition of Boundless Love.
* Embodying the love you ARE in a world in need of your unique gifts.
Miranda’s vision is to integrate The Way of Grace teachings and practices with a specific emphasis on the themes that she feels will best support us given these uncertain times. In addition, Miranda will emphasize supporting inner peace and holistic well-being. Spiritual practices that reduce stress and cultivate equanimity is one of the most powerful positive things you can do to boost your immune system.
