Free Online Event
with Senior Waking Down Teacher
Saturday, December 13, 2014
10am Pacific/1 pm Eastern
Starting early in 2015, CC will be offering A Year of Living Deeply: a 12-month study program based on the 12 chapters of her acclaimed book, Becoming Divinely Human: A Direct Path to Embodied Awakening. (More details coming soon!)
This will be an excellent opportunity to take your practice to a very deep level, with a group of like-minded people who are equally dedicated to the love, investigation, and expression of awakened life. You will be immersed in a richly supportive field of transmission and support designed to help you complete, stabilize, and/or integrate your own profound awakening.
Together the participants will explore the stages people typically encounter along the path to a full, irrevocable awakening. Each month will have a training call (recorded and downloadable) and also an intimate small-group sharing call, plus there will be a private Facebook group where course participants can ask questions and discuss their experiences. Students in the course will have the special attention of the teacher throughout the year, as well as many opportunities to practice conscious mutuality with other members of the group. While each month will be focused on a particular chapter, your process will be honored wherever it is on the spectrum of awakening.
In preparation for this significant opportunity to really go deep together over a sustained length of time, you are invited to join CC for a free conference call on Saturday, December 13, as she presents some of the myths of embodied awakening that can really hang you up. Clearing some of these erroneous expectations will facilitate putting your time and energy in the places where it will bring you the greatest benefits.
For instance, here are some examples:
- Myth: you have to be an exemplary student of meditation or yoga in order to awaken
- Myth: so-call “negative” thoughts will prevent your awakening
- Myth: enlightenment happens when a spiritual “high” becomes a permanent state
- Myth: adopting or copying the behavior of an awakened person will lead to becoming one
- Myth: awakening only happens to the chosen few, and usually takes multiple lifetimes
- Myth: awakening immediately erases karma and solves all your problems
Curious to know more?
Join CC for a lively discussion, and bring your own favorite myths to share with everyone. Let’s clear the way for a fresh start in 2015!
About CC Leigh
CC awakened in the mid-1990’s after a devastating “dark night” experience in which she felt herself to be an utter spiritual failure. After some years of struggling to integrate the insights she had gained with the confusions of her human existence, she joined the Waking Down community and became one of its most dedicated members and a senior teacher in the work. In 2005 she co-founded the Waking Down Teachers Association which has grown to 40+ teachers. In 2011 CC published Becoming Divinely Human: A Direct Path of Embodied Awakening, based on her own experiences and those of her many students over the years. Although CC kept a minimal teaching schedule following the devastating loss of her beloved husband to cancer in 2012, she is now coming forward again to support those who are ready for a dramatic shift in the quality of their awakening lives.
Here’s what one student said about CC’s book:
CC, I’ve been so meaning to tell you for such a long time now how wonderful your book is proving to be for propagating Waking Down. Even a dear friend of mine who doesn’t like reading much at all devoured it from cover to cover in a very short time. And I can see how it has opened her perspective, and its effects are still rippling through. As for me, I read it recently too, which was sooooo very satisfying… Really satisfying… hearing your voice in the words, the laser clarity, the beautiful structure, the opportunities everywhere for enriching and deepening my awareness. The delicious epiphanies. I’m just so happy that this book is in the world!
