Menla Training Level 2 – Advanced

The Menla 2 Advanced Training series takes us to the next level of insight, skills set, discovery, and explorations into the inner workings of our subjective world. It is an invitation to move beyond the confines of linear thinking into more relational, and ultimately a non-conceptual, non-dual experience. Through these road maps and stages, we can eventually access an authentic healing presence, and know what healing really means.

Ways to Give in…

What are the ways that hinder us to be the best that we can be…in body, heart, and mind; and the ways that can help? Here, we’ll bring up the courage and alertness to look with ‘fearless’ awareness into ourselves, and the places we hide. Together, we’ll explore contemplative interventions that will stick to help us http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photos-spa-composition-stones-healing-salt-image18713148on the path of our intent.
