FALLING IN LOVE WITH WHERE YOU ARE – 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:
WHY YOUR LIFE CANNOT GO WRONG (EVEN WHEN IT GOES WRONG)
Waking Up, Slowing Down, and Mindfully Embracing Life’s Challenges
“Between ‘what was’ and ‘what will be’,
there is a vast space called Now.
It is your true home.”
– Jeff Foster
Jeff Foster will invite you to see the perfection even in the imperfection of your life. He will invite you to slow down, reconnect with the present moment, and embrace both the joy and sorrow of your days…
He will invite you to see how everything is a gift on this unbreakable path that you call your life – the laughter, the tears, the times of great sadness, the experiences of profound loss, the pain, the confusion, the times you believe you’ll never make it, even the overwhelming heartbreak of love. It is all path, all part of a greater perfection.
He will explain why life can be trusted absolutely, even when trust seems a million light-years away. He will talk about why spirituality is profoundly simple, as simple as breathing, as natural as gazing up at the stars at night and falling into silent wonder.
He will help you bring acceptance and understanding to your body, your relationships, your work, your sense of self.
He will invite you to let of your mind-made destinations, and fall in love with where you are. Because when there is no fixed destination, you cannot ever lose your destination, so you cannot ever lose your path, so nothing that happens in your life can take you off your path! Your path IS what happens, and what happens IS your path. There is no other. This is the secret.
This will be a day of talks, meditative and honest dialogues 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, aware and alive, meeting 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.
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…”
