Workshop: Awakening Into a Complete Human Being

with Atreya Thomas

Saturday, August 5th, 10 am until 5 pm - $45 at the door

 Atreya Thomas

Day long intensive “Awakening into a Complete Human Being” We will explore awakening in ordinary life from transcendence to embodiment. Atreya will share his insights and practices giving you the tools to cultivate more Joy, Beauty and Peace in your life.

Atreya Thomas, author of Revealing the Absolute, Awakening into a Complete Human Being; and Revealing the Christ, is an extra-ordinary teacher who grew up in the inner cities of New Jersey; and writes as he speaks. Having cut his own path from outside any particular “school,” he speaks from experience and free of dogma, and the results are fresh and enlivening. His own life combines the duties of householder, devotee, and teacher in a lifestyle that focuses on being awake in the midst of ordinary life.

Atreya Thomas is a father of five children whom were all adopted through foster care. He continues to foster drug exposed newborns with his wife in California and works closely with underprivileged communities. Atreya holds Satsangs where invited, works as a preschool teacher, studied Shaolin Qigong for 30 years, and holds a degree in Psychology.

“Atreya shares with us a very practical guide for awakening in ordinary life. His language and examples are down-to-earth and draw upon his own life experience. He gives us both a clear map that is easily accessible and extremely helpful.” ~ Loch Kelly, author of Shift Into Freedom: The Science and Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness
