I’m back from the first retreat but it seems not to have ended. It would be nice to be able to make a list of Main Points, such as Tom has done on his retreat reports. But this one was not like that. There was no lectures or teaching. It was simply a conversation of Self with Itself. Some questions answered to satisfy the mind enough to get it out of the way. But otherwise, this was avoided to prevent activating the mind.
I cannot begin to find words to express how powerful it was. The warmth and love and happiness and power were exceptional. If I shared the statistics of how many left the retreat awake, you would likely not believe it. It is unbelievable. I didn’t accept it before, until I knew some of the people. Even in these remarkable times of many people awakening, these particular retreats are exceptional. The facilitators have a rare gift for walking people past their last barriers to awakening.
Some things that were particularly inspiring. A young woman who awoke on her third day of meditation, having her experience verified, a full adult life ahead of her without burden. A young man who not only awoke, but 3 days later had a complete second awakening into Unity. We’re talking 3 major shifts in the perception of reality. In his return of the small gift of support I offered him, I was witness to the birth of a remarkable teacher.
Considering what was once required to get to such a place, these things are a clear sign of what one might call the ‘quickening’. And it’s really quickening.
They have asked that I not yet publicize the group. Not all the infrastructure is in place yet. When all those many people long on the path realize what this is… So I will leave it at that. Suffice to say, the next few years will be astonishing.
In 2 days I begin a week long retreat, in silence. It will be a little more heart, a little more mind, but another nice rest.
