THE HEART & THE GROUND
A Friday Evening Dialogue and
Saturday Daylong Retreat
with John and Christiane Prendergast
in Portland, OR
April 12–13, 2019


The heart is neither inside nor outside of the body.
—Ramana Maharshi


water fallWe will explore the multi-dimensional nature of the heart and the ground, which are complementary portals to our true nature. 

As we empty out our limiting self-images and stories and uncover our inherent love, kindness, gratitude, stability and inner authority, the relationship to our conditioned body-mind transforms. Increasingly, the deepest dimensions of our heart and ground support our human vulnerability, allowing for its self-liberation. 

Through silent and guided meditations, subtle body sensing (gentle Kashmiri-inspired yoga), potent dyadic meditative inquiries, talks, and dialogues, we will deepen our felt-sense of intimacy with our true nature.

Please wear loose comfortable clothes for two sessions of yoga on Saturday.

Christiane Prendergast

Originally from France, Christiane Prendergast studied with Advaita master Jean Klein who taught subtle-body yoga learned from Kashmir Shaivism. Essentially, this is a form of somatic inquiry, where the body, rather than the mind, is the primary portal for the experiential investigation of energy and consciousness. Open to people of all fitness levels, the body is explored through gentle movements and postures, with all the sensations welcomed effortlessly in the open space of awareness.
