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 in order to go deeper.

  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 -

Dates are limited to usually just one day each month, according to Amoda’s schedule. These are usually added to the calendar on a monthly basis - please stay informed of upcoming availability by signing up to the newsletter, or by checking the Events page each month.

Join her for an intimate dialogue that invites you to reject nothing, welcome everything, and surrender into the deepest falling of the open heart. Includes a silent and/or guided meditation, discourse, and ample time for questions and answers. 

Listen to the visitors who knock on your heart … knocking from the inside. Shame, pain, loneliness, grief and more … all these are your allies not your foes. They yearn to come in, to be acknowledged, accepted, loved. For what is broken is the doorway to gold, what is shattered is the entrance to inconceivable love, what brings you to your knees is not a punishment but God’s invitation. Your brokenness is holy.”

There is a suggested contribution of $15 - 25 for this event.

Full details and registration are on the Open Circle Center website

NEW YEAR'S RETREAT at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado - COMING HOME TO THE CORE OF YOUR BEING
Dec
29
to Jan 2

NEW YEAR'S RETREAT at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado - COMING HOME TO THE CORE OF YOUR BEING

Come deep dive into truth and celebrate with us!

This retreat is an invitation to discover your deepest longing to “come home” and to “fall open” into the core of being. Held in a container of loving inquiry, you will be supported in bringing to light everything that stands in the way of your true radiant nature as this being-ness. Through tender yet unwavering honesty, you will be invited to bring your brokenness, your vulnerability, and your wildness, right here into the present moment, to simply be with whatever arises, and to hold it in the bowl of unconditional acceptance. Together we will enter the radiant field of openness at the core of all experience. And together we will celebrate the unspeakable grace of being human! 

The retreat will be supported by Kavi (Amoda's husband and beloved), who will provide improvised music of the heart, and his own unique brand of wild wisdom and unbounded love. His awakening has flowered gracefully through his relationship with Amoda over the past 15 years, and he brings to the conversation his deeply poetic nature and clarity of vision.

The Daily Schedule will include Talks, Inquiry (Q&A) Sessions, Silent Sitting, Guided and Movement Meditations, Sacred Music of the Heart. The sessions allow for an intimate and spontaneous conversation, effortlessly traversing the depth and breadth of heartbreak, humor, and sacredness. There will also be time for contemplation, rest, and walking. In the evenings, there is usually music and meditation and on at least one of the evenings there is a spontaneous dialogue on stage between Amoda and Kavi where through songs, poetry, humor and personal stories, they share the essence of an embodied love and presence that expresses itself in the grit and grace of the human experience.

(Please note - all our retreats are held in a container of silence. In other words, we invite you to refrain from social conversation during meals and break-times so that we can go deeper. All dialogue happens during the sessions, which are intimate and powerful.)

“ I'm not interested in how spiritual you are. I'm interested in how willing you are to stand as openness in the face of life’s vicissitudes. 

In openness, there is no problem because there is no resistance to what is. The whole spectrum of the human experience – from heaven to hell – is deeply accepted. We stop trying to be spiritual, stop handing over authority to our imagination of how it should be, and come to rest in the true authority of our innermost openness.

And when we seem to fall, when we seem to fail, when we find ourselves back down on our knees broken open by pain or loss, we remember that we don’t need cower in shame or fix ourselves or look for salvation in spirituality.

We remember to be right here, in the bare bones of our humanity, in love with the openness that holds every experience.” - Amoda Maa 

Deep dive retreats are for those who are ready for real transformation, and the results are often life-changing. We recommend that you already are familiar with Amoda’s teachings, either having attended a previous event, having read her book 'Embodied Enlightenment' or having watched her videos.

What people say about retreats with Amoda and Kavi -

“A deep dive retreat with Amoda Maa will change you. She is what an awakened humanity looks like and reminds us that we are that too. If her beloved husband Kavi joins her with his beautiful music and insights from his own poetic heart, so much the better!”

“One of the most important spiritual teachers of our times. Do not miss this opportunity!”

“A retreat with Amoda and Kavi is a **** masterpiece!”

5-day IMMERSION at Synergia Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico - GRACE & GRIT (Discovering Unbroken Presence in the Human Experience)

This deep dive retreat is an invitation to fall into the unbroken presence that holds the totality of the human experience.

Join us, as we explore what it means to embrace the grit and the grace of being human, as we examine assumptions about spiritual awakening, and as we enter the field of radiant openness that is at the core of all experience.

You will be invited to tenderly bring your brokenness, your wildness, and your vulnerability right here into the present moment, to simply be with whatever arises, and to hold it in the deepest acceptance. You will also be invited to courageously bring to light the often hidden tendency for spiritual by-passing, so that the full flowering of your consciousness can be rooted in the very belly of your humanity. 

The retreat will be supported by Kavi (Amoda's husband and beloved), who will provide improvised music of the heart, and his own unique brand of wild wisdom and unbounded love. His awakening has flowered gracefully through his relationship with Amoda over the past 15 years, and he brings to the conversation his deeply poetic nature and clarity of vision.

The Daily Schedule will include Talks, Inquiry (Q&A) Sessions, Silent Sitting, Guided and Active Meditations, Sacred Music of the Heart. The sessions allow for an intimate and spontaneous conversation, effortlessly traversing the depth and breadth of heartbreak, humor, and sacredness. There will also be time for contemplation, rest, walking, and enjoying heart-centered celebration with each other. Together, we will enter the slipstream of unspeakable grace inside the human experience!  

“Listen to the visitors who knock on your heart … knocking from the inside. Shame, pain, loneliness, grief and more … all these your allies not your foes. They yearn to come in, to be acknowledged, accepted, loved. For what is broken is the doorway to gold, what is shattered is the entrance to inconceivable love, what brings you to your knees is not a punishment but God’s invitation.

Friend, can you embrace the grit and grace of being human? Can you reject nothing, welcome everything, surrender into the deepest falling of the open heart?

Friend, listen closely. Your brokenness is holy.”

- Amoda Maa

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype

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 in order to go deeper.

  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 -

Dates are limited to usually just one day each month, according to Amoda’s schedule. These are usually added to the calendar on a monthly basis - please stay informed of upcoming availability by signing up to the newsletter, or by checking the Events page each month.

9.30am / 11am / 2pm / 3.30pm / 5pm

About Your Session (please read carefully) -

  2. Check your time zone carefully - all times shown below are Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) - if you are unsure, contact us here before you book your session.

11:00 AM11:00

DAYLONG MEETING in Albuquerque, New Mexico

This Daylong Meeting is an opportunity to join Amoda Maa in an intimate conversation that supports the journey of awakening and the deepening into living an awakened life. How do we move beyond egoic reactivity? Does awakening transcend the human experience? How can we open to grace? What is the source of true fulfillment? These questions and more are welcomed to be investigated.

The meeting 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 to support a deepening into being. 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.

There will be a short lunch break - please bring your own lunch.

Cost - $75 full rate / $60 reduced rate.  

Please reserve your place in advance, if you can. You may also show up and pay at the door - but please make sure you arrive about 5-10 minutes before the start so we can register you.

Please note - we cannot make refunds if you purchase a ticket and do not attend. If you make a cancellation up to 3 days prior to the event, we can make a refund minus a $15 admin fee.

5-day RETREAT at Santa Sabina Center in San Rafael, California - SANCTUARY OF SILENCE
Jun
5
to Jun 9

5-day RETREAT at Santa Sabina Center in San Rafael, California - SANCTUARY OF SILENCE

This retreat is an opportunity to turn within and allow a deeper inquiry that arises from the tenderness of the heart.

By gathering together and turning away from daily activities, you are supported in the ever-deepening realization of silent being. From this inner sanctuary of silence you are invited to tell the truth without the habitual narrative of story-telling, allowing questions to arise spontaneously from simplicity and answers to arise in clarity. 

The Daily Schedule will include periods of Silent Sitting, Talks, and Inquiry (Q&A) Sessions. There will also be time for contemplation, rest, and walking.

The retreat is held throughout in a container of silence (no talking or interaction outside of the Inquiry Sessions, and no social conversation at meal-times or during breaks). In this silence, mind and heart are given the possibility of coming home to their deepest longing.

The retreat will be supported by Kavi (Amoda's husband and beloved), who will provide sacred music to take you deeper into the inner sanctuary of the heart.

“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

We recommend that you already are familiar with Amoda’s teachings, either having attended a previous event, having read her book 'Embodied Enlightenment' or having watched her videos.

Arrival - Wednesday June 5th, 3pm

Departure - Sunday June 9th , 2pm

This is a residential retreat (accommodation and full meals included). But for those who live close by, we also welcome commuters (no accommodation, with or without meals). The special atmosphere of privacy and quietude provided by the venue supports commuters to enter silence as soon as they arrive each day. See below for full info about accommodation & meals. 

Please note - if you are attending as a commuter, you are required to attend all the sessions. Sessions start immediately after breakfast (breakfast is served 8-9am) and continue after dinner (dinner is served 6-7pm) up until about 8 or 8.30pm. If you choose the "no meals" option, we request you bring your own lunch & dinner so that you can stay within the sanctuary of the center. 

Held at Santa Sabina Center - a unique sanctuary in Marin County, just 30 minutes from San Francisco.  The center was originally built as part of the Dominican monastic order, and continues to have a quiet elegance and sacredness that supports contemplation and meditation despite its proximity to the urban environment. There are woods close by, as well as many quiet streets around the Dominican University campus. There are also plenty of places to sit privately, either indoors or outdoors in the beautiful gardens.

Accommodations are single or double rooms (twin beds). Rooms are simple but elegant and comfortable - all bedding and towels are provided. Bathrooms are shared (men & women separate) and are conveniently located in the common hallways.

Meals - 3 full meals are provided daily, with teas, coffee & hot water/lemon available throughout the day. All food (non-vegetarian, includes dairy, sustainably-raised salmon and free-range chicken) is locally-sourced, organic whenever possible and deliciously healthy. Special dietary requests (such as vegetarian/vegan/gluten and dairy free) can be catered for. 

How to get there - If you are driving, the center is easily accessible from either north or south Highway 101. The center is 60 minutes from the San Francisco International Airport; the Marin Airporter to San Rafael and a short taxi-ride are available. More info about location here. (You will be sent more complete travel instructions and transportation options after reserving your place). 

Costs - 

Tuition = $495

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.

Dates & Availability -

Dates are limited to one or two days per month, according to Amoda’s schedule. These are usually added to the calendar on a monthly basis - please stay informed of upcoming availability by signing up to the newsletter, or by checking the Events page each month.

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype - SOLD OUT

PRIVATE SESSIONS via Skype - SOLD OUT

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.

 

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.
