What You Need to Know Before You Book a Session -

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.

  7. Transforming conscious relationship to enlightened relationship.
  8. The deeper purpose of relationship - the evolution of humanity.

The day includes talks by Amoda, time for questions and answers (inquiry), and silent sitting/guided meditation.

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype
Dec
14
to Dec 15

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.

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.

5-DAY RETREAT at Mount Madonna Center, Watsonville (near Santa Cruz), California - UNWAVERING PRESENCE
Nov
12
to Nov 16

5-DAY RETREAT at Mount Madonna Center, Watsonville (near Santa Cruz), California - UNWAVERING PRESENCE

A 5-day Immersion into Amoda’s Teachings

This retreat is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the illumination of Amoda’s teachings. Her invitation is for you to discover what is deeper than the reactivity of the ego, to dive into the immovable core of your true nature, and then to commit to moving from that unwavering presence in response to your world. 

Through dialogue, inquiry, and radical self-honesty, we will investigate how we can lovingly expose this reactivity and then relax into our inner core in all circumstances. In the safe container of this gathering, everything that is experienced is a doorway to transformation. While the theme is "unwavering presence", ultimately it is about love .. the kind of love that is the deepest knowing in your heart, and the kind of love that is the openness of your natural state.

The retreat is suitable for all, whether you are a newcomer to Amoda’s teachings or more familiar with her work.

Daily Schedule 

This will include -

  • Discourse, Q&A, Inquiry (2 to 3 sessions a day).
  • Silent & Guided Meditations.
  • Time for contemplation, integration, and relaxation.

There will be time in the early morning (before breakfast) for movement practice -  Yoga/Pranayama classes are offered by the Mount Madonna Center teachers. These are optional and you are also welcome to follow your own yoga or meditation practice at this time

Mount-Madonna-2016-165.jpg

Please note - although not officially a "silent retreat", you will be invited to keep silence throughout (apart from the Daily Sessions in which you are invited into inquiry/Q&As). The aim is to put aside social chit-chat to see what is here in a deeper dimension of being. There will also be formal "silent sitting" (silent meditation) sessions include daily. For those who are sharing a room with a friend or wish to walk or share a meal with a friend, the silence is not strict but we ask that you keep an attitude of respect and quietude. We can provide “In Silence” badges for those who wish to be in complete silence. There are plenty of places at Mount Madonna Center for both solitude and interaction, according to your preference. 

The full schedule will be given to you at the start of the retreat, but please note the schedule for the first and final days - 

First Day of Retreat, Sunday 12th

Arrival & Registration from 4pm onwards                                                                                  Dinner at 5pm
