PUBLIC MEETING at Open Circle Center in San Rafael, California - LIVING THE TRUTH OF AWAKENING

There’s a new conversation happening. There’s a growing collective desire to evolve beyond ego. Because ego’s power no longer works in our lives and in our world. More and more people today yearn to awaken. But this isn’t the pursuit of enlightenment as a transcendent state, it’s not spirituality as a hobby or a luxury or an accolade. It’s a new frequency of awakening that embraces the grit and dirt of the human experience. It’s about bringing spirituality right into the places where it hurts, where the rubber hits the road. Such as relationships, and work, and pain and loss. 

Amoda’s invitation is for you to discover the openness of your true nature .. to be fully awake. And then to live from this openness in every interaction of your everyday life .. to be fully human. Her teachings take you deep into this discovery, offering you an intimate conversation that includes the totality of the human experience within the unbounded space of unconditioned awareness.

There will be time for silent sitting, discourse and questions/answers. 

"My invitation is to say a radical YES to the totality of this moment ... this is the heart of You meeting the heart of reality!” - Amoda Maa

All welcome, both those familiar with Amoda's teachings and newcomers. 

This event is hosted by the Open Circle Center, a non-profit organization that supports teachings of wisdom and compassion. 

A donation of $15-25 is suggested. Please pay at the door.

WEEKEND INTENSIVE in Seattle, Washington - LIVING AS THE OPEN HAND OF LOVE
Sep
28
to Sep 30

WEEKEND INTENSIVE in Seattle, Washington - LIVING AS THE OPEN HAND OF LOVE

In this Weekend Intensive, Amoda offers an intimate conversation that includes the totality of the human experience within the unbounded space of unconditioned awareness. She invites you to inquire with radical honesty if you're willing to surrender all psychological weapons of war - the reactivity and rightousness of the ego - so that you can live as the open hand of love. 

Friday, September 28, 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Saturday, September 29, 10am - 5pm

Sunday, September 30, 10am - 5pm

Each day includes time for Silent Sitting, Discourse, and Inquiry (Q&A) Sessions. 

Amoda will be joined by her husband and beloved, Kavi, who will offer improvised music of the heart as well as engaging in the conversation with his wisdom and love. Kavi is a "holistic inquiry" coach, as well as a talented musician. His awakening has flowered gracefully through his relationship with Amoda over the past 15 years.

“What really matters is your willingness to turn towards tenderness in the midst of that which offends you, to stand as openness in the face of brokenness, and to bear the unbearable. This is the path of surrender .. and the only way I know to enter the slip-stream of unspeakable grace inside this human experience.” - Amoda Maa

Both newcomers and those familiar with Amoda's message are welcome - although it is recommended that you read her book "Embodied Enlightenment" prior to attending this event or watch her videos.

You are welcome to attend any or all of the days. Although we highly recommend that you attend the whole weekend, so that we can dive deeper together. If you choose to book for just one day and decide to attend for an additional day, you can make a last minute reservation at the door (cash or check only) if there are places still available.

On the Saturday & Sunday, there will be a short lunch break - please bring your own lunch. Teas & refreshments are available during the breaks.

Cost - we offer a full rate as well as a discounted rate. See below for tickets.

Location - held at a private residence in Bellevue (near Seattle), Washington.

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype

An opportunity to speak privately with Amoda Maa in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world. 

Through dialogue and inquiry, Amoda offers a space of loving presence in which you can share and explore what stands in the way of knowing your innate nature as innocent openness. 

 

What You Need to Know Before You Book a Session - 

  1. These sessions are not self-help or therapy. Amoda does not provide any tools for self-improvement or on-going support for psychological issues. Rather, she offers the clarity of her wisdom as a spiritual teacher, always pointing you within to a deeper truth that is the source of freedom, love and intelligence. It is possible that just one session is enough to give you the guidance that you need, or you may choose to receive guidance on a more regular basis.

  2. The sessions are particularly useful if you are already familiar with Amoda’s teachings by having attended her meetings and/or retreats, watched her on Youtube, or read her book 'Embodied Enlightenment'.

  3. It is helpful to prepare yourself for a session by having some questions ready, or at least to know the focus of your inquiry. When you book your session, you will be sent some questions to guide you. You do not have to answer all the questions if they are not relevant, they are simply guidelines - you can also come absolutely empty and simply be open to how the session unfolds. However, Amoda asks that you make the most of your time with her by contemplating what your deepest desire is, what you are looking for in life, and what freedom means to you.

  4. These sessions are often intimate and tender; your complete confidentiality is kept.

PUBLIC TALK at Science & Nonduality Conference (SAND) in San Jose, CA - BEING AWAKE AND FULLY HUMAN IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS
Oct
25
to Oct 28

PUBLIC TALK at Science & Nonduality Conference (SAND) in San Jose, CA - BEING AWAKE AND FULLY HUMAN IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS

Being Awake and Fully Human in Intimate Relationships

The nondual rubber hits the road in our intimate relationships where we must face all that remains hidden in the shadowy recesses of our hearts. This includes our unexamined beliefs about love, the fear of aloneness, and the powerful emotions that arise when our buttons are pushed. Wherever we are on our spiritual path, relationships can offer a crucible to see where we are identified and defended. They can also help us transform co-dependency to a deeper communion in which we relate to one another from a sense of genuine inner freedom and fullness. 

In this presentation, Amoda will speak about the true purpose of relationship, as well as speaking from her own direct experience of being in a long-term relationship. She will explore central questions, such as: What is it like to relate from an inner fullness rather than lack? How does the awakening process impact the experience of intimacy? How does one deal with emotional reactions when they arise? What if one’s partner has no interest in the process of awakening? Is there such a thing as an “enlightened relationship”? She will also take questions from the audience. 

beloved.jpeg

This talk (with time for questions and answers) will be presented in the San Martin Room of the Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND) 

on Sunday 28, 11.50am - 12.30pm

The Science and Nonduality Conference is a gathering inspired by timeless wisdom, informed by cutting-edge science, and grounded in personal experience. SAND honors and nurtures the exploration and experience of nonduality as a pathway to greater wisdom and wellbeing in the context of the unique challenges of the 21st century.

This year the SAND Conference will be bringing together some of the brightest minds in science along with spiritual teachers from various traditions, to expand and deepen our understanding and experience of what it means to be human. Through these two lenses – of science and spirituality – the theme of this year's conference will be: The Mystery of Being Human

WEEKEND RETREAT at Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY - AUTHENTIC FREEDOM: Embodied Enlightenment for the Modern Age

to Aug 5

WEEKEND RETREAT at Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY - AUTHENTIC FREEDOM: Embodied Enlightenment for the Modern Age

Many of us yearn to evolve out of the egoic paradigm of consciousness, and many have had momentary experiences of an awakened state, yet true peace and spiritual fulfillment are still elusive. In this weekend retreat, spiritual teacher Amoda Maa unravels some of the myths of enlightenment as a transcendent state, inviting you to discover authentic freedom by being both fully awake and fully human.

Take this opportunity to dive into deep spiritual inquiry and discover what stands in the way of living your awakening in every moment. With Amoda’s support you explore the full depth and breadth of your earthly experience with courage and tender honesty. Lectures and question-and-answer sessions are followed by periods of silence and guided meditation. You also receive guidance about the process of awakening and its embodiment from mind to heart to belly.

Both newcomers to Amoda's teachings as well as those who are familiar with her work are welcome to attend this retreat. If you are unfamiliar with her teachings, we highly recommend you read her book "Embodied Enlightenment" prior to the retreat, or watch her videos. 

This event is offered by the Omega Institute and all tickets are purchased directly from this organization. 

Tuition = $360.00

A variety of accommodations are available at Omega, ranging from Private Single with Private Bath to Shared Room with Shared Bath; a camping option is also available. Accommodation fees are in addition to tuition fee, and include all meals.

DAYLONG MEETING at Open Circle Center in Berkeley, California - RELATIONSHIP AS A DOORWAY TO AWAKENING
Jul
28
10:00 AM10:00

DAYLONG MEETING at Open Circle Center in Berkeley, California - RELATIONSHIP AS A DOORWAY TO AWAKENING

As awakening descends from the sanctuary of enlightened mind to the fullness of the heart, a deeper surrender is called for. It’s in the places where it hurts - such as relationship, pain and loss - that awakening demands a deeper opening and willingness to be vulnerable.

Whether we’re talking about our relationship to an intimate partner, a family member, a passing stranger, the world or even to our own feelings - the invitation is to put down our weapons of war and meet everyone and everything as the open hand of love. In this way, relationship becomes a potent doorway to awakening as a lived expression.

In this Daylong Meeting, Amoda invites you to consider questions such as … 

  • How do we deal with triggers in relationship?
  • Are you willing to face the fear of aloneness? 
  • Are you willing to expose the myth of the special relationship? 
  • How do we stop making an enemy out of those who don’t agree with us or give us the love we want? 
  • What is the true purpose of relationship? 

Amoda will be joined by her husband and beloved, Kavi, who will offer improvised music of the heart as well as his wisdom and love. Together, they will also offer insights from their own relationship. 

“What really matters is your willingness to turn towards tenderness in the midst of that which offends you, to stand as openness in the face of brokenness, and to bear the unbearable. This is the path of surrender .. and the only way I know to enter the slip-stream of unspeakable grace inside this human experience.” 

- Amoda Maa

This event is hosted by the Open Circle Center, a non-profit organization that supports teachings of wisdom and compassion. Tickets and registration available only through Open Circle Center, the rates are - 

  • Early-bird rate = $65 (up until midnight July 16th)
  • Usual rate = $85
  • At the door rate = $105

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype

An opportunity to speak privately with Amoda Maa in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world. 

Through dialogue and inquiry, Amoda offers a space of loving presence in which you can share and explore what stands in the way of knowing your innate nature as innocent openness. 

 

What You Need to Know Before You Book a Session - 

  1. These sessions are not self-help or therapy. Amoda does not provide any tools for self-improvement or on-going support for psychological issues. Rather, she offers the clarity of her wisdom as a spiritual teacher, always pointing you within to a deeper truth that is the source of freedom, love and intelligence. 
     
  2. The sessions are particularly useful if you are already familiar with Amoda’s teachings by having attended her meetings and/or retreats, watched her on Youtube, or read her book 'Embodied Enlightenment'. 
     
  3. It is helpful to prepare yourself for a session by having some questions ready, or at least to know the focus of your inquiry. When you book your session, you will be sent some questions to guide you. You do not have to answer all the questions if they are not relevant, they are simply guidelines - you can also come absolutely empty and simply be open to how the session unfolds. However, Amoda asks that you make the most of your time with her by contemplating what your deepest desire is, what you are looking for in life, and what freedom means to you. 
     
  4. These sessions are often intimate and tender; your complete confidentiality is kept.

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype
Apr

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype

An opportunity to speak privately with Amoda Maa in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world. 

Through dialogue and inquiry, Amoda offers a space of loving presence in which you can share and explore what stands in the way of knowing your innate nature as innocent openness. 

 

What You Need to Know Before You Book a Session - 

  1. These sessions are not self-help or therapy. Amoda does not provide any tools for self-improvement or on-going support for psychological issues. Rather, she offers the clarity of her wisdom as a spiritual teacher, always pointing you within to a deeper truth that is the source of freedom, love and intelligence. 
     
  2. The sessions are particularly useful if you are already familiar with Amoda’s teachings by having attended her meetings and/or retreats, watched her on Youtube, or read her book 'Embodied Enlightenment'. 
     
  3. It is helpful to prepare yourself for a session by having some questions ready, or at least to know the focus of your inquiry. When you book your session, you will be sent some questions to guide you. You do not have to answer all the questions if they are not relevant, they are simply guidelines - you can also come absolutely empty and simply be open to how the session unfolds. However, Amoda asks that you make the most of your time with her by contemplating what your deepest desire is, what you are looking for in life, and what freedom means to you. 
     
  4. These sessions are often intimate and tender; your complete confidentiality is kept.

 

Dates & Availability -

Amoda offers very few private sessions. Her preference is that you join her in the deeper work that happens at retreats, but if you are unable to do so - or wish to use the sessions as an adjunct to this work - she provides this service whenever she can. Dates are limited to several days per month .

ONLY THE DATES & TIMES SHOWN BELOW ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE - please check the EVENTS page for more dates as they become available - or sign up to Amoda’s NEWSLETTER to stay updated.

About Your Session (please read carefully) - 

  1. After you choose your date & time and make payment (about a week before your session), you will be sent Amoda's Skype address - please use this to contact her at the appointed time of your session. 
     
  2. Check your time zone carefully - all times shown below are Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) - if you are unsure, contact us here before you book your session. 
     
  3. Familiarize yourself with using Skype video calling several days before your session - if you have any questions about this, contact us here in advance. 
     
  4. Set yourself up in a quiet space, without distractions and with good lighting. 
     
  5. All sessions are 60 minutes.
