Beshara’s 7-day course (Nov 8-15)

Beshara SEA 7-day Discovering Unity course - Nov8-15 2014
Pleased to announce that Beshara SEA will be holding a seven-day Discovering Unity course at the Portibi Farms, Sukabumi, on November 8-15, 2014.

Principal of Beshara School, Peter Young, will be facilitating the course.

The course will have daily themes aimed at providing space for each student to start establishing in themselves a unified perspective on reality while remaining in her/his particular life circumstances.

Each day one aspect of each theme will be looked at together in greater depth, using a short text as the basis for conversation. Students will also be guided through a series of mindfulness practices together with group activities and conversation on questions and themes that arise.

The course is open to all, regardless whether the student has participated in a Beshara course in the past. Willingness to fully participate with the intention to know oneself is essential.

We truly hope that you could join this wonderful opportunity. Feel free to share this with friends whom you think would be interested too.

I remember this conversation from many moons ago.

A consultant came to her supervisor and said, “Tell me, what are the key skills of successful consultants?”
Her supervisor said, “Listening.”
“Okay, what else?” she immediately said upon hearing this.

Her supervisor responded, “You’re not listening.”

Beautiful, beautiful response.
