The Power of Awakening

Upcoming Events with Jim Dreaver

To realize true inner freedom is the most important gift you can ever give yourself.  Freedom manifests in a clear, loving presence. You are awake, alert, patient, and listen attentively. Everything flows better, including your personal and work life.

You are invited to join us at any of the below events for meditation, dialogue, an exploration of the simple awakening practice as it applies to actual situations, and a celebration of our always-existing true nature, here and now…

Note: All times PST (Pacific Standard Time)

For questions or more information, call Jim at 310-916-4037. 

Monday, June 26, 7 - 8.45 pm. Gathering with Jim. Private residence, 2860 Verde Vista Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93105.* By donation, all welcome!

*Private residence, take State St north to E. Alamar, which is marked by a stop light/Lemon Tree Inn. Right on Alomar, Verde Vista is 2nd street on right, 2nd block on right, 4th house—standing stone Buddha in front! (Please - no wearing of any scents/perfumes).

Awakening to love and freedom within is the greatest gift we’ll ever give ourselves. Jim teaches a way of shifting our awareness that opens our hearts and heals everything in our lives, whether it’s a problem concerning our relationships, work, health, finances, creativity, or meaning and purpose.

Say the mantra “Be one with this moment…,” then breathe, get grounded in your body, and become one with this moment. Connect with your surroundings, then observe your inner reality.

Notice how your thoughts and “stories,” including this ego “self” you most personally identify with, just like your feelings and emotions, come and go. However, “you,” as the awareness that sees, are always here.

The more you see this, the more you realize that the whole world of “me, myself, and my story” inside your head is a fiction, an illusion. This seeing frees you to be fully present. Then you can deal with the reality of your circumstances with clear eyes and an open heart.

The results of this shift are profound and liberating. You feel cleansed, healed, renewed—and more present, open, and loving toward everyone. Come join us and bask in the ease, harmony, and flow of our true nature…
