This talk from a virtual sitting in May, 2019, examines this essential part of the Trillium dharma. In Sugandhi’s brief talk, she characterizes greenlighting as “recognizing and allowing what is buried in the basement that needs to come into the light.” The talk includes a guided “recognition meditation” to help you bringing your hidden parts out of the basement.
Trillium Awakening Podcast
This Podcast Series features teacher talks on a variety of topics from the Trillium Awakening Dharma. We hope you enjoy them. Please feel free to reach out to the teacher if you want to continue the conversation in person!
In this talk from one of her online sittings, teacher and Visionary Council member, Cielle Backstrom, explores the nature of a forever connection in the unfolding of Whole-Being Realization. In the Trillium work, one of the aspects of the awakening process is a “direct experience, recognition, and realization of that ground of Being that underlies all creation.” Join Cielle as she unpacks this Forever Connection of awakening.
Join Trillium Awakening teacher and psychotherapist, John Bottone, in this lively discussion of our work from a psychological perspective. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs eventually went beyond “self-actualization,” which is reminiscent of the rot and core paradox, to “self-transcendence.” Learn how our own survival strategies align with self protective strategies that can impede our awakening to our true and total nature.
How do we understand and apply the idea of Greenlighting? It’s a revolutionary concept that invites us to come forward and bring our story to life rather than bypassing or transcending it. “Bring yourself to the forefront, and allow yourself to be seen to yourself.” Join Sandra and Deborah Boyar for a discussion on the nature and practice of Greenlighting.
This “Guided Conscious Awareness Exercise” audio is a recording of an improvised guided exercise (with some explanation) that Van Nguyen provided for his small group at the Northeast Deep Dive Retreat on September 17, 2015, to help one of his students clarify Consciousness.
This talk was given at the 2018 Transfiguration Retreat in Olympia, WA, by Trillium teacher and psychotherapist, John Bottone. “When all is said and done, the fundamental need of our time, the precondition of creating a peaceful and sustainable world is the spread of a new and more evolutionarily adaptive consciousness, a consciousness of oneness and belonging.” Join John as he explores how this “consciousness of oneness and belonging” is reflected in the Trillium path.
We are both absolutely uniquely embodied, and totally at one with all beings and the entire cosmos. Different psychological and spiritual perspectives tend to emphasize one or the other poles of these perspectives, but what does it mean to live both as a way of life? Join Trillium Awakening teacher Kelly Yi as he explores this paradox.
One of the beautiful aspects of the Trillium path is that leads us to holding paradox as our lived experience. How do we balance our mind’s desire for logic and the persistent messiness of our lived “reality?”
Pausing . . . in today’s fast paced world do you take time to pause? When people speak of awakening they often use the word “presence” or the expression, “present moment awareness.” Pausing, even for just a moment, can bring us in direct contact with presence.
Trillium Awakening teacher and Visionary Council member, Cielle Backstrom speaks about the connection between presence, consciousness, the ground of being and fundamental wellness.
In this interview by Deborah Boyar for the Trillium Teachers Living Library, Teacher Steve Boggs discusses his journey from a follower of “practices” to the transformed “effulgence of the Self . . . and the Divinity of everyday life.”
