Maui, Hawaii Magnificence! Silent Retreat & Satsang February 11-16, 2010 With Katie Davis and Sundance Burke
PRIVATE & SECLUDED UPCOUNTRY SPA ESTATE nestled in the Olinda Hills of Haleakala in deafening stillness and extraordinary bi-coastal views, surrounded by tropical gardens. Intimate sharing with Heart Friends. Sundance and Katie are joining the spiritual family throughout the retreat and living at the estate with plenty of wise love!
CHECK-IN is 11:00 AM-3:00 PM on Thursday, February 11 before the President's Day Weekend in the U.S. The estate is 15 miles from the arrival airport Kahului, Maui, Hawaii, USA. Please arrange your own shuttle.
SILENT RETREAT with Sundance and Katie is an opportunity to step out of daily activities and profoundly rest as deep silence. This stillness is the aliveness that is already within you, untouched by the ego, its time and suffering. This is an extraordinary chance to realize the Heart that you genuinely are at the core of being, through being present, deep resting and Self-inquiry. Gathering together for an extended period in the frequency of satsang, you may realize the conscious freedom and causeless joy that is endlessly available through spiritual awakening, enlightenment and Self-realization.
SATSANG will be offered in (2) two hour sessions daily with (1) the evening of arrival; all with talks, deep resting, music and an opportunity to ask questions, share and be spiritual friends.
SILENT JOY SATSANG will be offered in (4) one hour sessions each evening in total silence as radiant stillness with Sundance and Katie.
AWAKE TEACHINGS are based on Non-duality, consistent with Advaita and the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, who encouraged Sundance and Katie to start sharing in 1998 and who also encouraged them to write their books, Awake Joy by Katie Davis and Free Spirit by Sundance Burke. They have offered six week seminars on Eckhart Tolle Teachings.
Sundance and Katie also guide the Self-inquiry Teachings of Ramana Maharshi for the simple reason that they have found them so successful with the appropriate guidance at their six week seminars on Ramana's Teachings.
That said, these teachings are based on Self-realization, rather than conceptually based, and therfore blessed by the palpable Radiance.
Sundance Burke awakened in 1982 with the sage Shunyata named the Rare Born Mystic by his friend Ramana Maharshi. Katie Davis spontaneously and radically awakened in 1986 without practices or teachers. Sundance and Katie met in 1988 and since 1999, they have been traveling worldwide.
STILL ROOM doors slide open the entire length of the room to bring the tropics inside. The still room will be open 24 hours a day for meditation, silent sitting or Self-inquiry.

A few of the benefits that you will enjoy from the practice of Yoga are: improve posture, muscle tone & flexibility; healthier functioning of the internal organs, nerves & glands; greater mental clarity & concentration; stress reduction & sounder sleep; increased vitality & inner peace." ~ Meenakshi Angel Honig
HANDS-ON ENERGETIC HEALING SESSIONS WITH AMARA are available for an additional charge by contacting Amara directly to schedule (details on the Registration Page).
"I have been a chiropractor and energetic healer for over 20 years. Over the course of this time I have hired numerous hands-on healers and energy-working practitioners, in addition I have run workshops on energy healing and have received energy work from over 100 different practitioners. I am happy to report that over the course of this time I have found no one more gifted or qualified than Bonnie Amara. She brings to her work a very deep understanding and profound sensitivity to the workings of energetic, spiritual and physical healing. Her work is gentle, nurturing, restorative and extremely balancing. Amara’s sessions not only offer the possibility for healing of physical maladies, but her work also opens the possibility of deep connection with spiritual opening. Her treatments include a balancing through the laying-on of hands and also personal guidance from deep spiritual understanding. I am sure that anyone receiving the gift that she has to offer would be benefited in ways deeper than this recommendation can articulate."
