The heart opens us to the mystery of divine love and its secrets of oneness. This seminar will explore how the Sufi path awakens us to this mystical truth that is both within and all around us.

Mysticism—Living Love's Oneness includes talks by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, silent meditation, and discussion. Advance registration required, and is through the Mercy Center. The Mercy Center will be offering retreat accommodation for a special reduced rate. Please visit the website for details

This event is co-sponsored by Mercy Center Burlingame and The Golden Sufi Center. 

Deep inside every human being there is a place that connects us with our primal nature and gives us access to an inner wisdom. If individuals or groups make a connection with this inner core, they access the universal knowledge of unity and thus experience life from a broader perspective. The Oneness Center offers a space that allows us to learn how to access this simple and yet dynamic state of oneness individually and collectively, bringing it into our daily lives.

Buddha’s Daughters - History and Emancipation of the Tibetan Nuns

28. Februrary 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
7pm - approx. 8:30pm, Talk with Noemi Brog

In the West, Buddhism has been very popular since the beginning of the 20th century. One of the reasons for that popularity is the fact that it addresses all human beings, independent of social origin or gender. Therefore it is even the more surprising that equality and gender issues are very present in Buddhism. Despite the fact that Tibetan nuns get less attention than Tibetan monks? How are Tibetan Buddhist nuns viewed today? How do they get supported in their pursuit of spiritual development?

The Secret of Forgiveness

28. March 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
4:30pm - 7:30pm, Afternoon workshop with Natalie Knapp

We all carry around a list of things that we cannot forgive ourselves or others: big disappointments, small acts of unkindness or simply missed opportunities. This hidden list is sapping much of our energy. It keeps open past wounds and binds our energy until we are able to forgive. Only forgiveness can heal our open wounds and pave the way for wholeness and wellbeing.

But can everything be forgiven or are some things just unforgivable? What steps do we have to take in order to be able to truly and profoundly forgive?

In the workshop we will look at the secret of forgiveness, discover its life-enhancing power and try to take a few steps on the road to the soul's ultimate test. For understanding is an important part of forgiveness as the Indian poet and philosopher Rabindranath Tagor says: If we knew everything about each other, we would happily forgive each other.

Spiritual Ecology

December 3, 2011 
Mercy Center, Burlingame, CA 94010
10am - 5pm, $65

Spiritual Ecology is an exploration of the spiritual dimension of our present ecological crisis. At the root of our crisis, this irreversible climate change and a mass extinction of species, is a deep forgetfulness of the sacredness of creation. This primal split between spirit and matter has allowed us to pollute and desecrate our planet until its ecosystem is dying. How can we reclaim this inner connection that is so vitally needed at this time, work to heal our wounded and suffering world and its soul, the anima mundi.  How can our spiritual practice, our prayers, help the world?

This seminar will include a talk and discussion, as well as a practice of praying for the world. For event details, and registration information, please visit: Dec 3rd seminar: Spiritual Ecology

Breath and Silence—A Breath Cycle—Part 3

10. December 2011, Bern at the Oneness Center
2pm - 5pm, Seminar with Ursula Hofer

The breath cycle holds the mystery of coming into being and passing away. If we consciously experience the breath in its threefold nature of in-breath, out-breath and pause in-between we can experience the fundamental laws of life. In this three-part cycle we turn our attention to the three phases of the breath (cycle): Part I In-breath (April 29), Part II Out-breath (June 25), Part III Pause in-between (December 10).

The Quantum Leap of Thinking

5. November 2011, Bern at the Oneness Center
10.30am-5pm, Seminar with Natalie Knapp

Today’s problems are manifold but one problem prevents us from finding solutions. Unknowingly, we have learnt to think in a specific way and we get stuck again and again. Natalie Knapp illustrates how to free ourselves from a world view that constricts us and how to learn to think differently.

The Smile of the Senoi

16. September 2011, Bern at the Oneness Center
7.30pm - 9pm, Reading with Franziska Espinoza and Patrick Blank

The ancient People of the Senoi live a simple and elusive life in the mountain jungles of Malaysia. No watches, no phones, no cars. They start the day with sharing their dreams, stories from the “real” world. They call themselves Senoi, the People, and they see themselves as being part of All-That-Is. Robert Wolff’s stories are far more than just an account of a displaced people. They hold up a mirror to us and our way of living and they challenge us to rediscover our humanity and the interconnectedness with all of life in today’s fragmented world.

Breath and Silence - The Power of Being

13. June 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
4:30pm - 8:30pm, Seminar with Ursula Hofer

We often rush through our everyday lives and do our jobs with a lot of effort and willpower. Only rarely we allow ourselves moments of "being", because "being" is seen as a state of inactivity and inefficiency. This, however, is one of the big misunderstandings of our time. In a true state of being all things fall into place. Thoughts arrange themselves, emotional confusion is lifted and our relationship with ourselves and our environment starts to flow naturally. This creates a space that exists in the present moment and gives us access to a real power that nourishes us in order for us to give our life true meaning and act in a way that serves all of life. If we align ourselves with the breath and its rhythms we access this state of being naturally and we get given a connection to our innermost source that is waiting to pour forth into life. Basic breathing exercises, texts, and metitation supoort us in that process.
