 Suffering the Grand Gate of Integrated Awakening
Too often the role and purpose of suffering have been overlooked in most spiritual traditions. But suffering is not a force we can simply transcend or ignore, for suffering is a component of evolution and evolution is the nature of God. While the Buddha and many other great teachers taught there was a way to live free from unnecessary suffering, we cannot live without suffering. To deny suffering is to deny the dynamic quality of Divinity known as the force of evolution. Upon realizing this truth that we will never realistically escape suffering, we may ask ourselves, what then is the role of suffering?Through the years there have been courageous individuals who have deeply investigated the experience of suffering and discovered within the pains and the wounds of the psyche there are precious seeds of Divinity. When we look deeply, we find seeds stored in every aspect of our humanity—even the very aspects of self which most spiritual traditions work to transcend or eradicate from our humanity. Within the very heart-wrenching experience of pain is a transformational doorway—a gate into a greater aspect of Divinity. Through the experience of anger, is the gate of Divine power, through the experience of sadness is the gate of compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love, through the experience heartbreak and insecurity is the gate of indestructibility and deathlessness. Everything in this realm is not only here to wake us up, but as a stepping stone into greater and greater ever expanding aspects of our Divinity. When we embrace this teaching, we are able to live fearlessly in the world, for we know that every aspect of our humanity, has both a seed of truth within it and a is a gate to a greater aspect of our True Nature.

Awakening to our Boundless Divine Nature
Please join Craig Holliday and Michael Rodriguez for an intimate dialogue, of what it means to be awake in the world. For most of us on the spiritual path, we desire to be free of the world—free from suffering and inner turmoil, yet paradoxically most of us live in a way where we are bound by these forces. Could it be, though, that we are not here to escape to a heaven above, but rather discover a heaven within? Could it be that the doorway to what we truly are seeking, is right here in our very heart space?
Join us as we together deeply investigate this question, of how our humanity and our divinity intersect in a space of boundless freedom and the potential for this freedom to be lived in our practical everyday lives. Time and dates TBA.  Satsang/dharma talk, a short meditation and time for question and response.

Cost: $15-20 Donation

INTO THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE UNKNOWN: INTEGRAL YOGA AND NONDUAL REALIZATION

Science and Nonduality Conference

San Jose California

3pm San Juan Bautista Room

Friday, October 21st

 If we lack an evolutionary understanding, we miss out on the potentiality of what’s available for us to experience as Divinely awakened beings on the path.  Through embracing the evolutionary nature of God, we begin to open to the expression of God not simply as vast empty spaciousness, but as the movement of our very own lives.  The Spiritual path begins to make sense and we begin to see that we are the very evolving edge of God Herself.This knowing, transforms our ordinary human lives into something quite extraordinary—as we walk forward from darkness into the light. 

Come join Craig and many other great teachers at this powerful conference October 21-23.

2015:

Preventing Spiritual Attainments from Becoming Pitfalls.

At Sofia University in Palo Alto.

10 am Thursday, October 22nd.

Join Craig and other Buddha at the Gas Pump teachers for a Panel discussion on Preventing Spiritual Attainments from Becoming Pitfalls.  At Sofia University in Palo Alto.

A small audience is welcome to view the discussion which will be recorded for Buddha at the Gas Pump.

Also, if you are attending the Sand Conference come say Hi to Craig Saturday evening where he will be offering an informal discussion on his work as a nondual teacher and therapist.  Craig will share how he works with the shadow, ego and support for spiritual awakening.

Sofia University in Palo Alto

Sofia University, 1057 E Meadow Cir, Palo Alto, CA 94303, USA. People can park in the parking lot of the building and enter through the main entrance for that building, which is on the side of the building in the middle of the parking lot (it has a red canopy that says Sofia University on it). The room is right off the main lobby so a sign will be enough to get them there. They will just pass through the lobby and head right into the room.

There is a second Sofia University building right next door at 1069, whose main entrance is on the front. It is not that building (though we can make sure that anyone who arrives in that lobby gets redirected).

And here’s who’s in it at the moment:
