The Art of Letting Go
-Peter Russell-
Ballroom 2:00pm - 4:00 pm

The essential wisdom of the world's spiritual traditions might be summed in two words: Let Go. To find true freedom, we need to let go of our fears, judgments, assumptions and attachments. These are all creations of the mind; they have no independent existence. So why do we hold on to them? How can we let go? Peter will explore the challenges of letting go. What is it we really want? And why aren't we getting it? How can we step behind the thinking mind to subtler levels of consciousness? What does it take to be more in the present moment? How can we listen better to the still quiet voice within?
*Learn how to relax the mind.
*Learn how to access one's own inner wisdom.
*Practice being in the present.

The Awkening of Consciousness
— Peter Russell —
Ballroom 9:15am -10:15am

We stand at a most critical and exciting point in human history. For thousands of years, mystical and spiritual traditions have encouraged us to wake up to who and what we really are, to discover our essential nature. Knowing that essence, not just as an intellectual understanding, but as a direct personal acquaintance, brings a profound ease, a relief from our inner suffering, and opens the heart to unconditional love.

In the past, this awakening was held to be critical to our individual salvation. Today it is critical for our collective salvation. So many of the problems we are facing on a global level have their roots in a limited, self-centered mode of being. If we are to navigate our way safely through these turbulent times then, as well as doing everything we can to heal the planet, we need to take seriously the wisdom accumulated over the centuries on how to free the human mind from its attachments and self centered attitudes. We need to heal ourselves; heal our souls.

What does the awakening of consciousness entail? Beneath all the various teachings and techniques lies one a common principle. Let go. Release the mind from attachments and judgments. Return to the experience of present moment. And in so doing, discover the freedom and ease that comes when we open our awareness to the truth.Goal: Appreciate the value of the world's wisdom traditions for contemporary times.
