Throughout our entire life - from birth to death, in moments of great joy or utter darkness - we are intimately connected with the Open Ground of Being. When we live in conscious connection and understanding of this fundamental reality, our lives become infused with Love and Openness and we know ourselves to be home.
The Open Ground of Being is so unassumingly simple and ever-present that we tend to easily miss it. Innocent misunderstandings, cultural conditioning and looking at reality through the small or conceptual mind, make us believe that we are inherently deficient and separate from Love, Life and Spirit. Not recognizing that what we are longing for is already closer than our own breath, we erroneously seek then fulfillment and peace in objects, others, future goals or special experiences - which is fleeting and temporary at best.
To see through our personal and collective trances, Annette offers a two-folded approach: Through contemplative dialogue, non-dual inquiry and natural meditation we are guided to recognize and remember that which is naturally complete, awake and undamaged. Secondly, we gently examine and undo our erroneous notions of deficiency and separation and also assist our minds and bodies to release old traces of trauma.
Annette offers a group-environment that fosters safety, authenticity and natural compassion. Everyone who has an interest in living as Openness and being true to the Heart is welcome and supported in their awakening and unique unfolding.
"To be whole, we need to include,
accept, and connect all parts of ourselves.
We need acceptance of our conflicting
qualities and the seeming incongruity
of our inner and outer worlds.
Wholeness does not mean perfection.
It means no part left out.”
