A non-residential weekend. You can attend one or both days.

This Weekend Intensive is an opportunity to join Amoda Maa in an intimate conversation that includes the totality of the human experience within the unbounded space of unconditioned awareness. She asks you to investigate with radical honesty what prevents you from knowing your true nature as openness, and then invites you to live from this openness in the midst of the challenges and turbulence of everyday interactions. The conversation is always spontaneous, allowing jewels of wisdom to arise naturally in support of the journey of awakening and the deepening into living an awakened life. 

Each day includes time for Silent Sitting, Discourse, and Inquiry (Q&A) Sessions. Please bring your innermost questions, or simply rest in silent presence.

Saturday, April 27, 10am - 5pm

Sunday, April 28, 10am - 5pm

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. 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 retreat or watch her videos. 

Please note - this is a non-residential event held over 2 days. You are encouraged to attend both days, as we will create a safe container within which we can dive into a deeper inquiry. This container also amplifies the frequency field of love to facilitate transformation. If you choose to register for just the Saturday and you then wish to also attend the Sunday, you can make a last minute reservation at the door (cash or check only) if there are places still available.

Seating is provided, but please feel free to bring your own cushion for extra comfort. Please bring your own lunch. We will provide snacks & refreshments. 

The event is held at the beautifully elegant Treman Center in Newfield, just 10 minutes drive from downtown Ithaca.

Single day (Saturday or Sunday) - $100
