and Some Real News
Do as the French do.. Send your New
Year's wishes up until January 31st and continue "la fête" or
celebration of the end of the past year and the coming of the new year
as long as possible! This is reason enough for us to seek
out new and more profound ways of being together than anyone has ever
experienced, and in doing so, naturally contribute to creating a
more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
A more beautiful world is one which we and
others appreciate who we are and what we have to offer, one in which we
can feel an unexplainable deep connection with others and all
"things"--in the heart--and one in which there is a true
life-work balance or integration--the workplace is alive and
fulfilling and there is wellbeing with others and ourselves.
For most, this may seem to be an impossible
endeavor--to change or evolve society and culture to such a degree,
especially considering how much the show of populism is likely
to distract just under half of this country for the next four
years. But exciting new ways of being with others have been
incubating mainly in the San Francisco Bay area and in Boulder,
Colorado over the last twenty-six years, and are now being offered
right here in D.C. and Virginia through the D.C. Awakening
Collective and others. The D.C. Awakening Collective includes Samsara House 2023, Awakening New Possibilities LLC and
launching this January, Meditate Everywhere LLC (see below).
In January, we restart the successful
monthly Open Fireside Chat Awakening Circle (see below) and
an inaugural launch of Meditate Everywhere just steps from the White
House (Jan 25th). You are invited to come see what this movement
is all about and learn how to increase the capacity to be with yourself
and others in a more authentic way than anyone ever knew was possible.
Be sure to read our article published in the January 2017 edition of Natural Awakenings
magazine. [Flip through the Full January Guide]
To you and yours, and all others who may cross
your paths or come into your lives anew this year, may this 2017th
year be one in which we all find more ease, more stillness, and
more brightness in the relationships with ourselves and others, and may
our lives be and become full of more space, more healing and more

Open “Fireside” Chat Awakening Circle with
Bennett Crawford & Cullen Kowalski

We're doing it again! This
monthly community gathering for discovering how to
cultivate real connection with ourselves and others happens again
next Saturday January 28th!
There is no community without connection. Samsara House
2023 seeks to create and hold space in which profound connections
happen. The result is a real community of humans who live and die
(continuously), committed to each other like never before. A community
that lives, acts and talks from the Heart and no longer from only the
head of ideas and concepts.
Open to the participants of our workshops and anyone who
is committing to changing the world by how they show up in the world.
We automatically transmit our new way of being to others around us; we
create ripples. Sitting in mutuality with others helps accelerate our
individual awakening. Mysteriously, we gradually relax into the ground
of Being and all Knowing while we continuously let go from the ground
of fear, and polish the mirror of our consciousness along the way. The
leading edge of meditation is interpersonal and the practice of
mutuality. The future spirituality is experiential. Like everything, we
only get good at it when we practice. Come on out and practice in
togetherness. You won't regret it.
Save the Dates for these upcoming
Fireside Chats: Feb 11, March 11, April 8

About DC Awakening Collective, (est. 2016)
Teilhard de Chardin once said,
is almost a sensual longing for communion with others that have a
larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those
engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost
impossible to describe.”
D.C. Awakening Collective contains a group of organizations, which
collaborate and share resources to fulfill the overall purpose of
the collective: to ignite an evolution in both cultural and individual
conscious. The collective was launched in March 2016 and governs
itself with Holacracy, an evolutionary organizational operating
system recognized within the movement of Teal Management.
Be and become inspired to come participate in
one or more experiential events being offered, and join us in building
the awakened society our hearts know is possible.
