THE WAY OF REST – A Weekend of Exploration
This weekend consists of 2 full day meetings on Saturday and Sunday with themes that complement each other and together form a whole. The meetings may also be attended separately without any problem. We look forward to welcoming you!
SUNDAY MEETING THEME:
THE MINDFUL CALM IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM:
Letting go of the struggle, and remembering your natural happiness.
“Stop waiting for others to make you happy. They’re too busy waiting for happiness themselves. You’ll be waiting forever. Stop waiting for the external world – objects, events, substances, circumstances – to bring you joy. Find a self-generating inner joy that is not dependent, a love that is undiminished by time or loss…”
– Jeff Foster
Perhaps, right now, you don’t need all the answers. Perhaps, right now, there is nothing wrong with you, and there never was. Perhaps spiritual awakening is not a destination; perhaps enlightenment is not a special state reserved only for a special few. Perhaps true freedom is available to everyone, all the time.
Perhaps your life cannot go wrong. Perhaps you have always been One with Life.
Join Jeff Foster for this special daylong gathering. Jeff will invite you to let go of everything you think you know about yourself and the world, to drop all your assumptions about spiritual awakening, and meet existence with fresh eyes. He will invite you to come out of your struggle, your drama, your story of past and future, and rest in presence. He will invite you to be truly alive, today.
It will be a day of talks, intimate dialogues, guided meditations and restful silences. A day of seeing our struggles, our fears, our sufferings in a fresh new light; a day of resting deeply, of letting go of the exhausting search for ‘something more’. A day of being present with whatever arises in ourselves and each other.
Whether you are struggling with your life and are looking for peace and space amidst the chaos, or you are a healer or therapist interested in meeting your clients in a new way, this meeting is for you.
“All suffering contains a deeper Invitation – to know and be what you are, the space for the pain, the space for the heartbreak, fear and confusion, instead of the victim. To be the capacity for the moment, instead of the captive. This is not passivity or ‘giving up’, but creative emergence, and alignment with all the intelligence of a universe.”
– Jeff Foster
You don’t need to have attended one of Jeff’s previous talks to attend this one. All are welcome.

“Great talk yesterday. Thanks for really driving home the point that there is nothing to wait for, and that freedom is in every experience – it just may look different from what we may expect. Freedom in life, not freedom from experiencing the ‘bad/scary’ parts of it.”
“I had been secretly searching for the ‘perfect moment’ all of my life, the moment I would be happy for good, thinking that something or somebody could give me a magic tool which allow me not to suffer for the rest of my life. After attending Jeff’s meetings and reading his books, I allowed myself the freedom to experience any sort of situation and emotions without having to feel guilty about it or feeling I am going backwards and beating my self up for it. Today being happy, crying or feeling like a failure are all opportunities for me to celbrate this life with open arms…”
