Beyond Belief: Self-Respect ~ Tuesday evening at Anubhuti

Tuesday 24 April, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Anubhuti Meditation and Retreat Center
820 Bel Marin Keys Blvd
USA

Tuesday 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Being Beyond Belief Series

To ‘believe’ is also to say ‘I don’t know’. A belief is not necessarily a truth. So how are we to realize and know our own truth? How do you know that you know? What is the difference between belief and truth? In this series of Being Beyond Belief, we will examine how certain beliefs get in the way of the truth.

Beyond Belief: Self-Respect

You have frequently heard the term ‘don’t lose your self-respect’. But it isn’t necessary and it’s not possible. Only when you reside in the awareness of your own worth, value and goodness, are you ‘able’ to create and hold others in the same way with your consciousness. Respecting others is respecting self. Let’s learn and know for yourself.

Weekend Retreat

Friday 6 pm to Sunday 2 pm

Access peace, creative expression and your inner wisdom 

Whether you are an experienced or beginning meditator you can benefit from a period of silent meditation to quiet the mind and reset your priorities.

This creativity and self-awareness connects us with our deeper selves and each other. Learning to deepen this process of silent meditation in a group is easier than meditating alone, as the collective resonance enhances the experience. Join us and access your true potential. Side effects may include feeling joyous and content.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Ability to easily tap into the power of inner peace and wisdom at any time
  2. Cultivate concentration skills that enhance creativity and clarity

TO LEARN MEDITATION MEANS TO BRING MORE PEACE, HAPPINESS AND MEANING INTO YOUR LIFE!  

Sometimes taking a meditation course can be experienced as a new beginning.

Learn to see and experience yourself filled with only positive energy like peace and love.  Bring happiness back in your life, no matter what is happening.  Establish and strengthen your relationship with The Source of all goodness.

You have been conditioned to believe ‘all things come to an end’. But do they really? It’s highly unlikely. Just notice how we have a tendency to rush towards conclusions.

Being Beyond Belief Series

To ‘believe’ is also to say ‘I don’t know’. A belief is not necessarily a truth. So how are we to realize and know our own truth? How do you know that you know? What is the difference between belief and truth? In this series of Being Beyond Belief, we will examine how certain beliefs get in the way of the truth.

Beyond Belief: Change

In the last decade, we have witnessed the re-emergence of some wonderful clichés around change. Such as, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Or “When I change the world changes”. But no one questions the beliefs that sit at the heart of such philosophical ideals. It’s Time! Come and learn more for yourself.

Beyond Belief: Opinion

You have probably learned to believe that it’s good to have your own opinion. But is it? It seems to imply that if you don’t you must be weak or lack conviction. Few realize that to have an opinion about anything is almost a cast iron guarantee that suffering must accompany its expression. Why? Well if you have an opinion about having opinions you may find this workshop somewhat challenging. Come and see for yourself.

Beyond Belief: Attraction

Belief in, and the application of, the law of attraction has become a popular way to get what you want. But can it bring you what you need? Which is what you really want…deep down. To get what you want you have to attract it. In fact, this is possibly so ‘not true’ that when you realize it’s a myth you will likely feel much freer inside, thereby becoming more…attractive.

“The natural result of living our values is experiencing love, peace and joy. After this workshop I feel I can be proactive to the needs of the world by implementing positive changes at home, at my school and in the community."

“I felt truly inspired by the Living Values Education Seminar and I embraced the ideals and "values" immediately.  They were things that I already knew I believed and wanted to impart as a teacher.  Teaching the 3 Rs are important, but I always felt my duty was to do more, especially in this world we live in.…”
