Berlin, September 7 – 8, 2019

“In my many years of knowing and working with Loch Kelly I feel that he is one of the clearest expressions of authentic awakened freedom and love that I know.”
– Adyashanti, from his foreword to "Shift Into Freedom"

What if you could open into a natural flow of wisdom, compassion, and joy in any moment? This possibility is closer than you think. Loch Kelly has integrated wisdom practices, neuroscience, and psychological research to support awakening as the next natural stage of human development.

This experiential weekend workshop is based on Loch Kelly’s newly translated book, Shift into Freedom: The Science and Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness. Come discover your natural wellbeing, compassion, and freedom in this transformational meditation weekend. Rather than meditating to calm and focus your mind, we will learn to intentionally shift into open-hearted awareness, which is already calm, stable, and able to effortlessly focus.

Through micro-meditations and inquiry dialogues, you will learn:

  • The “off-switch” for your chattering mind.
  • “Awareness yoga”, moving awareness throughout your body and mind in the midst of your daily life, to live from a natural flow state.
  • Unique modern versions of ancient wisdom practices to directly access your true nature: effortless mindfulness, nondual awareness, embodied presence and heart mindfulness.
  • Ways of liberating difficult mental and emotional states by discovering the resource of open-hearted awareness. We will learn how awake awareness becomes energetically embodied and open-hearted, so that we can experience wellbeing and live a compassionate life. All are welcome! It is recommended that you read the new German translation of:
  • Shift Into Freedom: The Science and Practice of Openhearted Awareness by Loch Kelly

    The workshop will be taught in English with consecutive translation into German. 

    All are welcome!
