“There is no such thing as your realization separate from mine.”

– Miranda Macpherson

COMMUNITY

All events, retreats and programs happen within a tangible atmosphere of loving kindness, mutual respect and care for one another. While some teachings have regarded human relationships as an impediment to spiritual awakening, this feminine perspective on awakening poses a very different view. We can explicitly harnesses the field of our togetherness as a powerful support to deepen our practice.

Miranda invites us all to actively serve one another through deep listening, witnessing and being truly present. This protects our spiritual practice from subtly becoming a narcissistic endeavour, inviting us all to give and receive support on the journey home. The Living Grace community takes three forms:

Living Grace Online Community:

You are invited to join a global online community of friends dedicated to reading and practicing The Way of Grace.

Support one another to live spiritual depth and bring more Grace into our world. We have plans to significantly expand our offerings in 2019! MirandaMacphersonTeachings#

Living Grace Sangha – Marin County, CA:

This is an ongoing, committed group with Miranda that meets two Tuesday evenings a month in Corte Madera, Marin. CA from 6:30-9:30pm (when Miranda is in the Bay Area). This group is designed for those sincere in deepening their spiritual and psychological evolution through the practice of Ego Relaxation. The format of this group is highly experiential. Each meeting is structured as follows:

  • Meditation, chanting & silence
  • Wisdom teaching on a specific subject
  • Inquiry practice in dyads (mostly using repeating questions)
  • Satsang (individuals welcomed to work with Miranda in the chair)
  • Group reflections
  • Chant and Dedication to close.

This group is now full. Miranda will receive applications in the fall of 2019, to join the sangha in January 2020. Two open evenings to explore whether this is for you, happen in early January each year.

At every retreat, daylong or sangha meeting, we have a “prayer bowl” into which names and requests for prayerful support are placed. At the end of each meeting we dedicate the benefits of our practice to those who have specifically requested it, as well as to the benefit of all beings. If you would like to be included in this list, please email your Prayer List request with your name, your location and in one short sentence – the area where you wish for support.

“My commitment to the Living Grace Sangha is a commitment I’ve made to myself, and my spiritual practice. It has kept me going when I feel discouraged or disconnected, knowing I am not alone. Walking in the door to our monthly meetings with Miranda feels like coming home. It is a place of respite, retreat, recognition and love. I leave feeling deeply fed, connected and grateful for this community where we support one another deeper on the path.”
