FALLING IN LOVE WITH WHERE YOU ARE – A Weekend of Exploration

SATURDAY MEETING: “FROM EXHAUSTION TO SURRENDER”
Is a brand new invitation
To let go of the story
To crucify history
To remember presence
To come back to life
~ Jeff Foster
“Whatever it is, stop trying to figure it out now. Let it remain unresolved a little while. Stop trying to fast-forward to the ‘answer’ scene in the movie of your life; trust the present scene of ‘no answer yet’. Allow the question itself space to breathe and be fertilised. Relax into the mysterious ground of Now.”
~ Jeff Foster
Being a “person” can be so exhausting, can’t it! But is a separate “person” who you really are? Are you limited to your beliefs, your feelings, your history and your future? Or are you much vaster than you ever imagined? Are you Life Itself?
We try so hard to control and understand life, to fit in, to succeed, to reach our goals. We try so hard to be perfect, to be happy, even to be enlightened or awakened, and often we can feel so far away from where we think we ‘should’ be. Often, no matter how hard we try, life doesn’t go according to our plans. Sometimes we feel exhausted, fed up, or depressed. We feel like a failed ‘self’, so far from home. We long to rest deeply, but we just don’t know how. But perhaps it’s not even a question of ‘how’….
Join Jeff Foster for a day of laughter and tears, a day of remembering who you truly are, and have always been. A day of rest and deep acceptance. A day of truth and openness, of coming home…
Jeff’s message is this: You were always perfect from the very beginning – perfect in your total imperfection! Your imperfections, your quirks, your flaws, your weirdness, your unique and irreplaceable flavours, were what made you so loveable, so human, so real, so relatable. Even in your imperfection, you were always a perfect expression of life, a beloved child of the universe, a complete work of art, unique in all the world and deserving of all the riches of life.
It was never about being a perfect ‘me’. It was always about being perfectly Here, perfectly yourself, in all your divine strangeness. “Forget your perfect offering”, Leonard Cohen sings. “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”
This will be a day of talks, restful meditative silence, exploring feelings, and intimate dialogues on the theme of exhaustion and surrender – a day of seeing your struggle, your fears, your suffering in a new light. Permission to rest deeply, no matter what is going on in the story of your life. A day to fall in love with where you are…
You don’t need to have attended one of Jeff’s previous talks to attend this one. All are welcome.
