Course of Awakening Spring 2011
With Loch Kelly
In this course, we will explore the direct experience of Awake Awareness, which is at the heart of the world’s mystical and non-dual teachings. Being Awake is our natural condition, not something that is created or earned. Most of us have not been aware of this overlooked dimension of consciousness because we have not known how to re-connect with it. We can rediscover the freedom that is already here as we learn how to look, where to look, what to look for and who is looking. Loch presents an easy to understand framework for the paradoxical journey of waking up from our mistaken identity, waking in to an embodied life and waking out to relationship and activity. Each class will include a talk, dialogue, meditation and inquiry aimed at helping us re-connect with Awake Awareness at any time. Each class builds upon the previous one, so that we can explore the process of awakening as it unfolds.
Attending Students - The Course will meet on the dates below in New York City. Registration for the class includes home study materials (downloadable audiobook recording and a transcript) so you can review each class, and if you cannot make any class in person you will not miss any of the material.
Home Study Option - Home Study is not a live broadcast but is available as a downloadable recording and transcript, which you can listen to and read at your convenience after each class meeting. Recordings are in audiobook (.m4b, iTunes) format, which can be played on a computer or an ipod, and can be converted to mp3 or an audio CD. Home Students will be able to email questions, which will be integrated into the next class meeting. This format has been extremely helpful and effective to those who have taken it from Australia to Europe to all parts of the US. Home Study students have reported that the experience of the Course of Awakening is different than listening to individual dharma talks or a series of satsang CD's, or watching a DVD of a teacher. The Course is taught in an experiential, adult-education style in order to encourage you to get in touch with and learn to rely on your own inner teacher as awakening unfolds.

Recordings and Transcripts will be available for download to everyone who registers for the full course, whether you attend in-class sessions or not - this allows for review of class sessions and at-home listening for those who were not able to attend. Recordings are in audiobook format, which can be played on a computer or an ipod, and can be converted to mp3 or an audio CD. Home Students will be able to email questions, which will be integrated into the next class meeting.
