The Experience

Seeing with the Eyes of the Heart
Living the Wisdom of the Jesus Story
with Adyashanti and Cynthia Bourgeault

There are times in every life when the heart opens and we suddenly experience a deep and intimate connection to all that is. This opening to love can come in a moment of joy, in the midst of great sorrow, or simply as an unexpected grace, unasked and unearned. In such moments, the resistance and separation of the egoic personality drop away, revealing an inner spaciousness without judgment or fear.

Spiritual teacher Adyashanti calls this discovery of our true nature “the power of redemptive love”—a love that delivers us beyond our stories of right and wrong and restores us to our original wholeness. Episcopalian hermit-priest Cynthia Bourgeault refers to it as kenosis, the path of self-emptying. This letting go, she says, is the path that Jesus taught—an openhearted surrender that connects us directly with the divine Reality.

Joining together for the first time, Adya and Cynthia will discuss how we can begin to embody this loving, heart-centered presence in even the most challenging moments of our daily lives; explore Jesus as a wisdom figure from whom we can learn these heart lessons; reveal how the crucifixion, the resurrection, and other key events of Jesus’ life are a blueprint for awakening and deep surrender; share everyday practices for keeping our hearts tender and awake even in the midst of challenges and trials, and much more.

The afternoon will feature a dialogue with Adyashanti and Cynthia Bourgeault hosted by Sounds True founder Tami Simon and will include two guided heart-opening practice sessions led by Cynthia and Adya.

The Buzz

“As always, Adya’s teachings are clear, compelling, and profound.”

“I’ve been following Eckhart Tolle for a few years now and Adyashanti is every bit as brilliant.”

“Cynthia Bourgeault is always enlightening and wonderfully surprising in her talks. She is so down-to-earth, but her information is heavenly and inspiring.”

“Adyashanti gives an excellent interpretation of the Jesus story. It is clear, rational, and makes total sense. Having been alienated from Christianity because of its dogma, but being a Westerner and Christianity being my tradition, I felt a need to understand it better. Now I do. Many Thanks to the wisdom of Adyashanti.”

“Cynthia Bourgeault is a very helpful resource for me and my faith journey. I am an ordained, seminary-trained minister and I need something more for my intellectual and spiritual understanding of Jesus. Cynthia Bourgeault meets both of these needs . . . ”

“I am enjoying listening to Resurrecting Jesus and find that Adyashanti’s mystical approach to the Jesus story is both unique and profound. This is certainly much different than you might hear from most church pastors. I would certainly recommend it to anyone that might be drawn in that direction.”

“A lovely and challenging teaching that has breathed new life into old stories. Cynthia Bourgeault provides the framework for a more enlightened Christianity.”

“I find Adya’s interpretation of Jesus’ story very beautiful and profound. Resurrecting Jesus is also a wonderful offering to those of a more Christian orientation and disposition. Taking Jesus’ life as an example, Adya provides an understanding of the awakening process from a perspective that is likely to be more resonant to those steeped in the Christian tradition.”
