In this four-part program, Jeff Carreira offers a brief but comprehensive presentation of the essential aspects of his teaching. By uniting the individual work of spiritual awakening with the collective work of paradigm shifting, he shows us how we can work together to change the world.
Session 1:
Spiritual Liberation: Freeing Our Hearts and Minds
In the first session of this four-part course, we will explore the essential first step in the transformative process: letting go and giving up control. We have to realize that we ourselves, and the world we live in, will be different once the transformative process is complete. The person who begins the journey is not the one who completes it. The world that we were in when the journey began is not the world that exists when the journey is over. In order for us to be available for this magnitude of change, we must let go of all the mental and perceptual habits that keep us tied to and limited by the person we think we are and the way we assume the world works. This profound release from everything we know has been the aim of deep spiritual practice throughout human history. In this session, you will explore what it really takes to let go enough to allow a truly transformative process to unfold.
Session 2:
Elevating Our Center of Gravity in Consciousness
On the spiritual path, we too often overemphasize the significance of our peak experiences and neglect to pay enough attention to the consciousness that those experiences land in. We all have a center of gravity in consciousness. This is the place in consciousness that we tend to rest. It is also the consciousness that we identify with as ourselves. It is the one we return to after our peak experiences. And it is the one that will ultimately interpret the meaning of our peak experiences and determine their value in our lives. Two people can have exactly the same peak experience, but then draw dramatically different conclusions about it, and, in the end, the conclusions we draw about our peak experiences will determine what effects they have on us and our lives. In this session, you will learn about the significance of steadfast consistency in practice. Our center of gravity shifts with our continued practice. Over time, it rises rises upward so that our consciousness comes to rest in a place far beyond the level of fear, worry and self-concern that so many of us find ourselves trapped in.
Session 3:
How Peak Experiences Expand Our Sense of What’s Possible
Although peak experiences tend to be overemphasized in spiritual work today, that does not mean that they are not essential. Our peak experiences transport our awareness beyond the confines of the familiar and the ordinary. They expand our sense of imagination and open us to new worlds of possibilities. They inspire us to continue forward and fuel our passion for more. They reveal every next step and point out any missteps we might have taken. These gifts of grace are our greatest teachers. Like flashes of lightning on a pitch dark night, they shine with brilliant clarity and illuminate the way forward. In this session, you will discover the nature and value of peak experiences and you will explore how to engage in spiritual practice with enough intensity to generate the energy of lift-off that will propel your awareness into extraordinary new visions of reality.
Session 4:
Bringing New Possibilities to Life in the Space Between Us
If we continue to let go so that we are always available for more, the habit of being that open and receptive will allow our center of gravity to float upward in consciousness. Our peak experiences, landing in a base consciousness that is open and receptive, will continually open us to new possibilities. But seeing new possibilities is not enough. We must bring those possibilities to life by living them with others. As our hearts and minds open, we see that our individual consciousness is part of a collective consciousness that is held between us.The consciousness that we hold between us, what has been called intersubjective consciousness, is the true source of ourselves and the world. That shared consciousness contains all of the assumptions and perceptual filters that make up reality for us. If we want to change the world, we must change the nature of the consciousness that we hold together. In this session, you will explore how we can re-create ourselves and the world by changing the consciousness we hold between us so that the new possibilities we have discovered can manifest into existence.
