bringing the world into the heart

What does it mean to bring the world into the heart? In these divided times, for those of us practicing peace, for those of us dedicated to liberation, we’ve been offered a grand opportunity to accept what we haven’t be willing to accept. To give what we haven’t been able to give. To love what we haven’t been willing to love. What else is possible when we allow our mistaken perception of an “other” to rest in the recognition of oneness?

The ultimate Relationship: opening to love

We are deeply conditioned to look for love outside ourselves. In that desperate search, we not only experience the frustration and the futility of grasping, we lose sight of who we authentically are. In this session, Caverly offers practices that not only remind us of our true nature, but guide us to a direct experience of it.

befriending the emotions

So often we struggle because we’re resisting, fixing, changing, or even “transcending” our experiences. What shifts when instead of pushing our emotions away, we invite them closer in? What changes when we learn to relate to our emotions like a welcoming friend? And, what changes when we are able to access the place in which there is no welcomer and no separate thing to be welcomed?

the voiceless voice of awareness

How often does it seem that the master of your life is the conditioned mind? To what degree does this mind of limitation color your experience? When the conditioned mind reigns, it becomes difficult to hear the still, small, voice within. This voice could also be talked about as the voiceless voice of awareness itself. What shifts in our practice when the recognition of ourselves as awareness colonizes our experience? What becomes possible?

surrendering to awareness

Often in spiritual practice there is the encouragement to observe. From that place of observation we attempt to “be with” what arises. When does that intention get colonized by the ego? Who is it that is “being with”? What is it that is “being with”? What shifts in our practice when we surrender what is arising to awareness? What shifts when we recognize ourselves as awareness?

awakening from fear

We need not avoid fear. Fear belongs to the illusion of a self that is separate from life. It is the byproduct of identifying with that illusion. Often, fear arises in the very moment that our awareness practices are bringing us closer to a direct experience of who we authentically are. For this reason, in practice, we can reframe our experience by seeing fear as a green light rather than a red light. We can learn to move towards, rather than away. If we want to live without fear, we must first learn how to live with it.
