The Ground

of Being

Opening to Spacious Awareness

This class is an intermediate class for those individuals who can see how systems are interconnected and can identify leverage points to impact multiple systems simultaneously, and planet-wide for the good of future generations. Now you are ready to grow into a new level of awareness in which you release your reliance on your knowledge of complex systems as your base, and open to a spacious, groundless Ground of Being, also known as Concentration Without Support or Seed Samadhi in meditation terms or Construct Aware in adult development research.  This can be a challenging transition for some because this type of awareness is not mirrored by society as a whole. It requires opening to infinite perspectives and seeing the constructed nature of human meaning making, which results in a sense of freedom, spaciousness and sometimes a sense of groundlessness. As you open to this stage, your whole view of life is called into question and you begin to understand awareness of awareness as a new baseline.  This class supports those who are transitioning from the systems (Strategist) paradigm to a stabilized sense of spacious Awareness (early Construct Aware) as their primary vantage point.

If you are interested in joining this class and you are unsure about your readiness, please contact me. If I dont know you, I may require one paid private session or a StAGES Assessment to assess your readiness.  

If you live in a country in which the exchange rate and your circumstances make this class cost prohibitive and you'd like to join us, please contact me.

Class Size is limited to 22 students.

 

Please plan to attend all sessions for maximum benefit. However sessions will be recorded for those who have a random scheduling conflict.

"In each and every session with Venita, I relish the experience of feeling seen and met in ways that continuously, exponentially, and cumulatively open my awareness week-by-week to simple and expansive recognitions of my sense of existence, ability to anchor colorful and fulfilling love and joy in my relationships, and more spontaneous joy and playfulness."

Scott Schwenk, Consultant and Coach, Los Angeles, USA

"Venita’s very presence is a natural conduit for human development. Her highly developed ability to recognize and normalize the transitions and challenges of later stages of development is rare and potent. Work with her reveals clarity and opens potential.”  

Melissa Ransdell, Purpose Agent, Melissa Joy Strategies - Seattle, USA

You may consider becoming a student of this work if you are willing to:

  1. Face, feel and accept anything you have avoided and/or clung to, and have the strength to release, heal and/or integrate past issues that prevent an open heart and clear seeing. 

  2. Learn to train yourself to manage and determine your own thought processes including learning to empty the mind of thought altogether.

  3. Perceive and resolve subtle energies and subtle impressions that continue to obstruct access to clear light awareness.

  4. Surrender to the passion and spirit that is both all pervasive and which moves you uniquely. Allow your divine passion to express as contribution to the world.

  5. Embrace a greater capacity to experience the self as both an infinite variety of expressions and as Awareness itself.  

This six session on-line class is open to anyone who has completed/received foundational personal growth and awareness training such as counseling, psychotherapy, coaching and/or meditation,

whether individually or in a group format and who is ready to take that learning to the next level of self awareness. Prerequisites are a degree of emotional intelligence, sensitivity to others and to the environment, a stable sense of self/mental health, a willingness to receive direct feedback and reflection, and a desire to move toward a greater level of freedom.  In Developmental terms you are likely late Achiever through early Strategist. In meditation terms you have some experience calming mental chatter, bringing yourself mindfully present, and can turn inward at will.  If you believe you meet these criteria, you are welcome to register without prior approval.

The class format consists of:

  • Teachings and meditations on individual and collective awareness

  • Exercises individually and in small groups

  • Large group discussion/questions

  • At home practices
