It is time to change speed, depth and amplitude and adapt our understanding of Spiritual Awakening to the post-modern reality we live in.
Ancient and worshipped canons of classical mysticism are useful in a very limited way and, at most, they can help to be a little more present, more centered, less conflicted, les reactive, more understanding, but rarely they give access to spiritual awakening.
As a Zen master used to say, awakening is an accident and practice can only make us more prone to the accident. But, it has to be necessarily so?
Perhaps this has been true for many centuries but does it have to be true still or something new and different is possible?
I have often stated that Enlightenment is non an abstract goal at the end of the journey but rather the most powerful and dynamic force that moves the Kosmos, In this phase of evolution enlightenment is not anymore only an individual possibility but also a collective one as well.
Spiritual awakening is in fact something that we often experience in our day to day life that nourishes our souls and actualizes our potential, even when we are not aware of it.
Is it possible to participate with passion, intention, love and efficiency to our own awakening? How do we do that? Is it possible to practice FROM Awakened Consciousness rather that FOR waking up?
This teaching is for people who are sincerely interested in awakening and ready to let go of the attachment to dark egoic compulsions, to old habits of resistance and contraction, old paradigms and holy cows and are open to realize, own and claim their uniqueness and awakening. NOW.
Am I free? And, what does it mean to be free? Is it perhaps the capacity to make choices as implied in the ‘Freedom of Choice” concept, or it is something different and much vaster?
And what has Love to do with Freedom? Do they limit or support and nourish each other?
Is it possible to live Love and Freedom, embody them in everyday life, consciously interweaving them in every action, every relationship, every longing? Can we participate with passion, joy and especially creativity in our personal evolution as well as in the collective one?
Fundamental understandings and practices to integrating spirituality in everyday life.
What’s the place in our life of love and truth? How do I experience them in my heart, in my guts, in my mind? What are the illusions, prejudices and concepts that prevent me to know love and truth as embodied presence, original and unique manifestation of who I really am, rather than the imprinted models of society, family, religion?
Our hearts feel truth and feel love, no matter how much we have been hurt, betrayed, how much we hide to be able survive and defend, to belong and avoid loneliness. Our bellies recognize love and long for truth, in our actions, in our behaviors, in our deep desire for authenticity, spontaneity, integrity. Our minds too, in the luminosity of our intelligence, recognize the need for the simple clarity of truth guided by the warmth, kindness and passion of love.
Two days of exploration, together, to see and feel where you are now with all this and strengthen your connection with truth and love; to live without fear but rather with curiosity and involvement the powerful wave of this moment.
This course is free; you only pay for food and accommodation.

The Hara Center (Tanden) is situated four to five centimeters below the navel, inside the body, and it is referred to as the Source of Life in the ancient traditions of China and Japan.
Hara is also the center of Being, the place where we can experience ourselves in our true identity, in inner silence and peace and where we can find physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.
As we become aware of the Hara point and we start living from it, looking from it, experiencing ourselves and the world from it, we will connect with the source of strength and silence within.
In this retreat we will reclaim our deepest center through specific ancient, and for long secret breathing techniques called Hara Breathing or Pre natal breathing, as well as specific meditations and exercises of centering and grounding. We will also explore the potential of the Hara Center through focused inquiry.
“The more you are aware of the Hara, the less you will become afraid of life and death —because that is the center of life and death. Once you become attuned to the Hara center, you can live courageously. Courage arises out of it: less thinking, more silence, less uncontrolled moments, natural discipline, courage and rootedness, a groundedness.” Osho
No previous experience is needed
We look in new and deeper ways into the basic steps of liberation from the judge and the effects these steps have on ourselves and the people around us.
We face the issue of authority and our relation to it, both the external and the internal one; we inquire into the issue of loyalty to different authorities: family, religion, nation, teachers, ideals etc. and the results that this loyalty produces in daily life.
We explore how our reactivity binds us to an infantile dimension capable only to experience authority as external. We recognize our capacity and natural intelligence in discriminating between the true authority and the false, egoic and narcissistic one.
And, most of all, we begin to recognize and honor our Natural Authority as we explore its symptoms, facets and ways to support it.
