Embodying the Transformed World: HOMECOMING

A Seven-Week Online Learning Adventure

October – December, 2021

For Journey Participants: Base Camp (Password Required)

The Majesty of Your True Nature Is Calling

When we venture out into unspoiled nature, we experience the beauty and magnificence of our own true nature. We taste the promise of an enlightened world. At the same time, the challenges of these times are indicating where there are deep opportunities for healing and integration within humanity as a whole. As we do the spiritual work – especially when we do this work together – a mysterious healing occurs within life itself, we remember our real Self, and we find more and more evidence of peace and harmony in the world around us.

Be Home Now ~ Embody Love

The resolution of every challenge lies in our ability to remember who and what we really are, and to nurture this knowing while engaging in everyday life. This is the way of being love, and it is also the way of “Embodying the Transformed World” – a series of online journeys hosted by Enlightening Journeys over the last year.

The first journeys, Transform at the Speed of Love and Awaken Yourself, Heal the World, set the stage for the journey of HOMECOMING, which will run from mid-October to early December. Whether you have been with us on a previous adventure or are new to Enlightening Journeys, you are wholeheartedly invited to participate in what is sure to be a remarkable experience of loving presence, awakening, community.

What You Will Receive

All of the Embodying the Transformed World journeys offer uplifting teachings, community, meditations, practices, and insights into these times. HOMECOMING will be our deepest dive yet as a community, and everyone who feels the calling is invited. Together we will:

  • Activate and deepen into an embodied knowing that we are already at home within true nature
  • Open to receive and utilize the powerful, and practical, gifts of oneness, nonduality, limitless mind, and beyond
  • Celebrate the oneness and sacredness of Life
  • Practice living as all-embracing loving presence that brings healing and harmony to the world and ourselves
  • Explore the big picture of spirituality, including where homo sapiens has been as a species and the luminous possibilities before us

Additionally, you will:

  • Experience the power and healing benefits of shared loving presence
  • Learn body-based and contemplative practices that will support your homecoming journey
  • Connect with a community of like-hearted souls on the spiritual adventure of embodying joy and true abundance
  • Discover insights and ideas that will help you to live an awakened life that benefits your family, communities, and the world

This journey will be a participatory and co-creative experience in which you will have many opportunities to share your wisdom and learn from the lived experience of others. Your presence will contribute to creating a potent field of healing, transformation, awakening, and peace.
