The Way of Rest: Day-Long Retreat with Jeff Foster
October 23, 2016 | 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$90
Jeff Foster’s latest book ‘The Way of Rest’ was released on October 1st. Join us for Jeff’s only West Coast event for the remainder of 2016.
Through talks, intimate dialogues, guided meditations and restful silences, Jeff invites us to stop trying to heal, awaken or fix ourselves, and instead to slow down, breathe, and sink into a field of radical permission. This down-to-earth invitation leaves us with nowhere to go and nothing to become. It is disorienting but ultimately exhilarating, to be so deeply in the Now … and discover that we actually are the Now! What a joy and relief to realize that our true home, our deepest sense of belonging, has been right here all along, embedded in each and every precious moment, the only moment we have.
Please arrive in the Auditorium for an 11am start. There will be a lunch break in the afternoon, so feel free to bring your own lunch and eat on the beautiful grounds, or it’s a short drive into town to enjoy the culinary delights of Ojai…
Everyone is welcome to stay after the meeting for a book signing! Jeff will be reading a passage from his brand new book ‘The Way of Rest’ and will be available to sign books afterwards.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID…
“Jeff shows us how to meet everything and to turn toward instead of away from Life… He has no lineage, so he has no spiritual guru baggage to carry around. His meetings are just raw, naked, unconditional love…” – R.P.
“Jeff in his person and in his teaching is absolutely genuine, consistent, humble, gentle and real.” – C.T.
“With unshakable patience and softness, Jeff approaches all questions with a completely un-rushed and peaceful style, always searching to find the most skillful words that can capture his thought and best be conveyed. In truth, Jeff’s teachings are alive…” – W.R.
“Jeff’s message is a relief for seekers who are tired of chasing dreams, and a true calling to re-examine what’s present in our lives and find out if we don’t already have exactly what we are looking for.” – P.L.
