“Return to the Heart of the Christ Consciousness” Conference

“Behold, the Kingdom of God is Within You” – Luke 17:21

Join us this March for the major Integral Spirituality gathering of the year, featuring presentations from an unprecedented group of spiritual teachers and leaders, as we explore the emergence of Christ Consciousness in the 21st Century. Today as we stand on the cusp of a new understanding of Jesus, there are many important, sometimes conflicting perspectives on the life of Jesus Christ. There are also many approaches to his teachings and his timeless message of unconditional love. These stories, perspectives and practices all shape our spiritual lives in profound and intimate ways, depending on which ones we choose to include and which ones we don’t.

In this extraordinary four day gathering, all of these perspectives will be invited into the room, as we explore the many diverse narratives illuminating the Christian path of love – from the traditional to the rational to the mystical – noticing how all of these different facets of the Christian story can “light us up” in different ways. We will uncover powerful spiritual practices that can be used to help you to move into a deeper and more personally fulfilling relationship with these sacred narratives, allowing the stories to truly come alive in your heart, mind and soul. We hope you will join us in the remarkable gathering of souls, where together we will celebrate the light of Christ Consciousness shining brilliantly through countless perspectives, illuminating the path to the Inner Kingdom, and ripening the fruits of our practice in the world.

OVERVIEW OF THE CONFERENCE

the Sacred Heart of ChristThe Return to the Heart of Christ Consciousness conference is designed to be an inclusive spiritual community experience. Each of our teachers will lead a series of practice sessions that will illuminate your own personal contemplative development and help you to create a more compassionate and loving culture. Practice sessions will include; Centering Prayer, labyrinth meditations, Christ Consciousness meditations, candle lighting ceremonies, and much more.

In addition to the live presentations and practice sessions, the conference will also feature incredible new video teachings recorded especially for this conference by Father Thomas Keating and Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault at Snowmass Monastery. This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these powerful teachings and practices of the Christian path of Love — teachings that will enlighten your heart for many years to come, regardless of what religious or spiritual beliefs you may hold.

The Conference Begins on Friday Night March 27th and closes Monday Evening March 30th at 6:00 pm

Join us as we…

  • Explore the diverse variety of narratives that chronicle the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the individuals that were drawn to the Christian path of love. The sources of these narratives include official church documents, historical sources including additional “lost” Christian gospels uncovered in the last 60 years, as well as fictional and “channeled” accounts.

  • Experience the contemplative practices and ceremonies represented by these narratives.

  • Discover how our contemplative state experiences are influenced by the way we translate who Jesus was and how his radical teachings of love continue to transform our lives.

  • Reflect on the qualities of Christ Consciousness through the eyes of other established spiritual traditions, with a focus on how it informs the development and evolution of a truly world-centric Integral Spirituality.

  • Explore a newly unfolding vision of Christianity that strives to be less ethnocentric and more world-centric, less exclusionary and more inclusive, less mythological and more mystical, less belief-based, and more experience-based.

To get things started, Integral Life has gone through their extensive Integral Christianity archive and pulled out some classic moments with some of the beloved teachers who will be presenting at the event. These teachings are free. Look for them on the home page of the conference web site.

Esoteric Spirituality: Two Kinds of Religion

Father Thomas Keating, Rollie Stanich, and Ken Wilber discuss the “inside” and the “outside” of the Christian tradition, exploring the rich contemplative legacy that exists at the core of the world’s largest religion.

 Jesus: Faith, Formula, Trikaya

Father Thomas Keating and Ken Wilber discuss the scriptural and historical roots of contemplation within the Christian tradition. Ken compares and contrasts the Christian Trinity with the Buddhist concept of the trikaya or the “Three Bodies of the Buddha”.

 The Lost Years of Jesus and the Ancient Mystery Traditions

Tricia will take us deeply into who was the man known as Jesus (or Yeshua as he was called back then) and what was His mission? Where did He go during the many lost years unaccounted for in the Bible? Was He involved with the many ancient Mystery religions that surrounded the Kingdom of Israel? Who was Joseph of Arimathea, and how did he figure into Jesus’ travels? What was His standing within the Roman Empire, and what part did Joseph play in Jesus’s life, death, and crucifixion? Is it possible that Jesus was a master initiate within these ancient schools, and that His teachings sought to bring all nations and religions into a unity of the heart?

We hope that you will join us for this outstanding conference — and be sure to take advantage of our early bird pricing while you can!

 What Women Want From Christianity

Leslie talks about her experience of utilizing a diverse range of contemplative teachings and powerful tools in her groups, how this process was shaped by her own spiritual challenges, and what she is hearing from women about what they want from their Christian faith.

 Jesus: Postmodern and Above

Father David McCallum, a Jesuit priest and educator, shares his thoughts about the differences between “religion” and “spirituality”, the role of sacred documents like the Bible in today’s world, and the beauty of the integral principle of “transcend and include”.

We will be exploring many of these diverse narratives at the gathering, and will be offering other free media clips on the Return to the Heart website in the weeks ahead!
