Perennial Wisdom: The Four-fold Truth at the Mystic Heart of the World’s Religions
September 16-18, 2022
Humanity stands at the crossroads of horror and hope.
Humanity is experiencing a dark night of the soul, a time of profound environmental and spiritual collapse when millions of us have lost all sense of meaning, mission, and purpose, and where far too many of us find ourselves adrift, frustrated, frightened, and angry.
To meet the challenge and opportunity of this moment we must evolve, we must cultivate a new consciousness rooted in Perennial Wisdom, the four-fold truth found at the mystic heart of all religions:
1) All life is a manifesting of a dynamic nondual Aliveness called by many names: Tao, Mother, Brahman, God, Allah, YHVH, Nature, etc.;
2) You have the innate capacity to awaken in, with, and as this Aliveness;
3) Awakening as Aliveness calls you to be a blessing to all the families of the earth, human and otherwise; and
4) Awakening as Aliveness and being a blessing comprise your highest calling as a human being.
Blending study of Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent and The World Wisdom Bible, both by Rabbi Rami, with a variety of contemplative practices—nada yoga (listening to fragile voice of silence), mantra japa (recitation of a sacred word or phrase), passage meditation, chanting, and labyrinth walking among others—this deep dive into Perennial Wisdom helps you cultivate nondual consciousness and the capacity to act ethically from it.
To prepare you for this retreat, during the week leading up to the retreat you will receive daily pre-recorded lessons providing you with a solid grounding in Perennial Wisdom. Each retreat participant must bring their own digital, paperback, or hard copy of Rabbi Rami’s Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent and The World Wisdom Bible with them. There will be no copies sold during the retreat.
The faculty for this One River Wisdom School are Rabbi Rami, Frank Levy and Susan Levy.
This One River Wisdom School program is a presentation of One River Foundation.
