But can we create a healthier relationship to money, one that isn't simply playing into the dominant cultural assumptions around money. Can we use money in a healthy way? Can money become yet another channel through which consciousness can flow into the world? – Daniel Lev Shkolnik ________________________________________ About Daniel: Daniel offers a practical approach to inner growth that combines nondual teachings with modern therapeutic practices. Through his work, Daniel helps people discover an authentic and deeply personal relationship with the cosmos, the earth, and their own innermost truth. His specialties include helping people cultivate inner peace, discover their life’s calling, and navigate nondual spiritual awakenings. ________________________________________ What is Spiritual Awakening? Spiritual Awakening, sometimes called enlightenment, is simply realizing our true nature: the felt sense that we are the cosmos, and the cosmos is us. When we are connected in this way, we become a channel for the universe to flow through us. It liberates us from our cramped personal identities and we become capable of immense compassion. This union with Everything is the central teaching of all mystical traditions. But truly living this truth can be difficult, destabilizing, and even frightening — especially if our ego conditioning is not ready for it.

Why is it so hard to be in a relationship after spiritual awakening?

Spiritual Awakening Guidance – Free consult: https://www.stableawakening.com/service-page/free-consult?referral=service_list_widget ________________________________________ Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Mohammad, St. Francis of Assisi—none of them were married or were depicted with their families. Spiritual leaders and spiritual teachers are not portrayed in relationships. It makes it difficult to understand how to be in healthy, romantic relationships (or family relationships) while progressing on our spiritual paths. Learn why it's so hard to be in relationships. – Daniel Lev Shkolnik ________________________________________ About Daniel: Daniel offers a practical approach to inner growth that combines nondual teachings with modern therapeutic practices.

Contain the Uncontainable | The Power of Structure in Spiritual Life

Why should you meditate? Why should you do ritual practices? In fact, why do temples, monasteries, ashrams, and various spiritual traditions rely so much on structure and strict limitations? Structure is powerful in spirituality. The bounds of structure allows us to approach what is boundless. Spiritual awakening, or nonduality, is the substance that no container can contain. So it's all the more important to have a steady boat when you set out into the empty waters of the absolute. Eventually, you'll have to give up the boat, too. But don't jump out too early. – Daniel ________________________________________ About Daniel: Daniel offers a practical approach to inner growth that combines nondual teachings with modern therapeutic practices.

Deep Listening: An Alternative to Meditation

Deep Listening: An Alternative to Meditation

What if you can't meditate? Let's face it, meditation may not be for everyone. But good alternatives to meditation are hard to find. In this video I want to share an alternative to meditation that I use called "deep listening." In many ways, I find it more powerful and direct than many forms of sitting meditation. Many of us are trying to practice in urban landscapes, without temple structure or expert guidance. This is a very difficult thing to do. This alternative to meditation helps us find the sacred all around us and allows us to make a temple of our lives. When we make a temple of our lives we are able to treat everything that arises around us as part of sacred space and time. This is similar to how Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel described shabbat: "a palace in time." Using deep listening we become the center of our spiritual world. Sacred space unfolds around us like a flower blooming, and every object and person we meet becomes part of the sacred fabric or reality. – Daniel ________________________________________ About Daniel: Daniel offers a practical approach to inner growth that combines nondual teachings with modern therapeutic practices.

We Come to Nirvana By way of Samsara | Adyashanti

We come to Nirvana, the state of nonduality, not by trying to avoid reality, but by being present to it. Spiritual awakening is not about transcending this reality, but by coming to fully love and accept our experience of being. This is an excerpt from Adyashanti's book "The End of Your World."

30 min Meditation for Authenticity | The Field of Consciousness

In this 30 minute authenticity meditation, I will guide you to a vast open field where you can experience the inner peace of your authentic self. When we are settled in our bodies, we feel centered and aligned with our own truth. When we no longer have to people-please or perform for others, we are free to be honest with ourselves. On one level, authenticity is a key stepping stone toward enlightenment. At the deepest level, authenticity is the very core of enlightenment: the realization of who and what we truly are. ________________________________________ About: Daniel offers a practical approach to inner growth that combines nondual teachings with modern therapeutic practices.
