The 3 Doors Academy - Begins October 2018

Marcy and Gabriel will teach the next U.S. 3 Doors Academy beginning this October.

The Academy provides you with the opportunity to engage deeply in the process of self-discovery. It is rigorous in the sense that you are asked to make an active and on-going commitment to self-reflection and meditation. It is challenging at times, since facing yourself can be humbling and disorienting. And it is frequently joyful, since the freedom of going beyond perceived limitation and experiencing the abundant resources of your true nature is liberating. A great strength of the program is that it draws upon the collective power of the group for support in transforming personal limitations. The trainee participates in six residential retreats, shares experiences in monthly small group conference video calls with a mentor, and draws upon the mentor relationship for individual guidance and direction.The Academy environment is one of complete confidentiality, support, and the genuine warmth that emerges when people openly share their journeys with one another.

Saturday/Sunday Meditation Retreats with Gabriel and Marcy: The Healing Power of Contemplation

Through meditation we connect with our essential nature: unbounded spaciousness, infinite awareness, and genuine warmth of positive, healing qualities. In this workshop, through the support of guided meditations, you can directly experience this nature and begin to harness the great healing power of non-conceptual awareness. Opportunity will be given to reflect upon your life, to bring to mind situations in which you may find disquieting or uncomfortable. As you bring naked observation to places you habitually move away from or try to figure out conceptually and instead connect more deeply with spacious awareness, the healing warmth of love, compassion, joy, and equanimity naturally arise.
