From Barbara Brodsky:
Dear friends,
Frank Levey first walked in my door in 1989, curious to attend an Aaron night. He came with a strong background in vipassana, and quickly became a regular, then joined the 3 year teacher training program. He met his wife-to-be, Larissa, in class, and I had the honor to officiate at their wedding.
Frank was a first teacher to many in our sangha, and also a beloved friend. As a teacher he was clear and spoke from his heart, offering his own dharma experiences to encourage and elucidate. As a friend, he was deeply wise and compassionate, always supportive.
He was also a fine builder and carpenter. You can see his craftsmanship in my office, which for some years was our DSC meditation hall and will serve again now as the site for the new Dharma Path program. He was a great environmental champion as well, deeply knowledgable.
Frank, you are beloved and will be missed. Go brightly into this new adventure, carrying all of our love.
Barbara

Darshan is energy sharing between the human and divine. The Mother is channeled by Barbara Brodsky

Darshan is an event in consciousness – as the Mother takes each person’s hands and looks into his/her eyes there is an interaction between the human and the divine, which focuses and draws up the consciousness of the human.

Our first fall workshop held locally (Ann Arbor, MI) and live streaming from anywhere. There are 3 workshops through 2018, all available locally and live streaming.

The first is titled Vipassana, you will learn about and how to use Vipassana meditation. Suitable for beginners to experienced meditators.

Saturday, September 29, 2018
10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Led by: Barbara Brodsky, founder and guiding teacher
Suggested donation: $75 - $225

Description:
Vipassana is a beautiful practice of clear seeing. We start with a focus, often the breath. Then we move to whatever is predominant in our experience. We don’t say, “I should stay with the breath”; we just move to whatever is predominant.
When that object is no longer holding our interest, we come back to the breath. When we are present in the moment we see deeply into the experience of that moment and genuine wisdom becomes possible. Whatever arises will cease. It does not belong to me!

This understanding allows us to relate to our present experiences with more ease and spaciousness. It allows us to greet the innate wise and joyful in ourselves.

Aaron Quote:
When you say ‘Thy will be done’, you’re not saying, ‘I’ll do whatever you want,’ you’re saying, ‘I obey this sacred sound within me, this sacred wisdom and clarity and love. I will listen for that and no matter how quiet it is and no matter how loud the ego’s voice is, I will keep coming back to that sacred vibration within the heart. That is the will I will follow and not the voice of ego.'

2018 Fall Silent Retreat - Mon., Oct. 8-Mon., Oct. 15 - FULL WEEK.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, Sept. 28; Full payment due at registration

Teachers: Barbara Brodsky, John Orr, Aaron* and including Darshan with The Mother*. A silent retreat held at Oakwood Retreat Center, Selma, IN.

Registration and information: ow.ly/1my630jl2fw

OUR RETREAT HAS THREE INTER-WOVEN THEMES: VIPASSANA MEDITATION, PRACTICE WITH THE NON-DUALITY OF RELATIVE AND ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE, AND LIVING FROM THE OPEN HEART

We have found that the combination of a silent Retreat with meditation and darshan with the Mother,* is a very powerful way of releasing long-held conditioned beliefs about the self and coming home to our true Buddha Nature/Christ Consciousness, our own deepest divinity. Mornings will include vipassana instruction and practice. Our afternoons will be a blend – as led by Spirit – of meditation, darshan, short teachings and guided meditations. Each evening there will be a dharma talk.

*Barbara Brodsky is the channel for Aaron and The Mother.
