When you realize yourself as completely empty and devoid of all form...this is wisdom
When you realize yourself as the fullness of love overflowing itself without object...this is bliss,
And when you are aware of yourself incarnate in the appearance of form...this is leela.
We are very excited for the re-release of "Sudden Awakening." As Hampton Roads eagerly expressed interest in this project, we now have a beautiful new cover, poetry written by Eli and a foreward written by Gangaji.
“Eli Jaxon-Bear is a master teacher, and this book is a clear reflection of his mastery. When read carefully, the reader receives a transmission of the awakened mind. With care and exquisite timing Eli reveals the culmination of his spiritual search as irrefutable evidence of the possibility of freedom for all.” --Gangaji

Public Meetings with Eli offer the opportunity to recognize the deepest truth of who you are and support in living a life true to this realization. They are open to all who feel the desire to come regardless of previous experience or knowledge.
For many, public meetings are an introduction to Eli and the transmission of silence. The meeting contains a period of silent meditation and an opportunity for questions and reports from the audience.

Enneagram of Character Fixation as a tool for self inquiry
"The great gift of the Enneagram is that exquisitely describes who you are not. It shows the veiling of true consciousness by habits of egoic definition. When these habits of mind are revealed, there is a clear choice to end the false identification and realize your true nature." Eli
The Advanced Enneagram Retreat is for those who already are familiar with their fixation and are ready to go deeper. If you are called to true liberation in this lifetime, the enneagram can be a wisdom mirror to see where you may still be trapped.

“It is not how deep the client can go but how deep the therapist is.” Eli
Exactly thirty years ago this summer, Eli started training therapists at Esalen Institute. These early month-long certification retreats became the basis of the Three Year Retreats and then the Leela School. After Papaji asked Eli to have satsang the third time in 1995, the emphasis of Eli’s work shifted and he prepared others to lead the professional retreats.

“I do not know how much time this body has left. We all have an expiration date stamped into our genes and reflected in our circumstances. But as long as there is life breathing in these old bones, I will be sharing what I have realized. I invite you to join with us if you are called from your heart” ~ Eli
The intention of the Intensive Retreat with Eli, first and foremost, is passing on the precious, holy incomparable gift of Papaji: the living presence of truth and silence. With this living silence realized as the seat of the heart everything that shows up is useful. From this primary transmission come secondary teachings relative to the historical conditions that humans find themselves in.
