​February Events

February 17 Meditation With Bert 10am - 2pm









Bert Levitt MA, LPC has been working with couples and individuals for over 38 years. He has seen firsthand that everyone has within them the ability to change. The skills set that Bert brings to his practice comes from a wide array of sources and experiences.

He has worked with abusive partners, addicts, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, chronic pain syndrome, and numerous other conditions, as well as all sorts of life and relationship issues. Working with couples to clarify intentions and act skillfully is a special focus. His marriage of 35 years has been his greatest teacher in couples counseling. Bert has been nurturing and facilitating our meditation group here at NaMestoy since its birth in 2011. This is what he has to say about meditation: 
 "My life long spiritual quest has led to my current meditative practice. The non-dual (not two but one out of which all things arise) way of meditation that leads to an awakened heart in the most direct way I know. Ramana Maharshi, perhaps the best known teacher of the non-dual way here in the west, also instructed students to meditate this way.
*Participants are invited to do walking meditation when they need a break from sitting for long periods of time, and they may come and go as they please during the four hours. Please enter and leave quietly.

February 24 Healing With Karen 12 noon - 2pm










Karen is our beloved energy healer who is with us the last Sunday of each month! She has so many modalities of proficiency. She is certified in yoga, Aruvedic medicine and naturopathy so she does more than just reiki healing while she focuses on each indiviidual who enters the sacred healing space in our meditation room. Having such a comprehensive approach to healing and wellness, she can always suggest a natural way for us to heal and maintain our body, mind and spirit. The minute we enter the room we can sense the holy Presence of Spirit. Karen becomes the conduit through which blocks in our mind, body, and spirit are removed so that our natural ability to heal ourselves is released. This Sunday Karen will be working with individuals in the meditation room while the rest of us will be receiving healing from the Gongs and group healing from one another.
Love offerings accepted

Nancy's Notes

Beloved Community, 


I've really been missing all of you who are in and out of NaMestoy throughout the week! I'm finally back on my feet and looking forward to our usual routine. Sacred Circle has been happening every Monday since the birthing of this community that welcomes everyone in all of their diverse ways of being, thinking, worshipping, and relating; knowing that the Divine Family includes all of us. We are the one Self; and yet, we all create an imaginary self, too. The "I" of Awareness is seemingly veiled and, along with it, so is its innate peace and happiness. Once the imaginary self has come into apparent existence, the innate peace and happiness that is the simple knowing of our own Being is apparently veiled. As a result, this imaginary self leaves the Now, where Awareness eternally resides, and ventures out into a past or a future, seeking an object that will reinstate this lost peace and happiness.(Once again, I'm quoting some of the words of Rupert Spira).

Yesterday, Carol and I were both in the veiled state. Everything was going wrong. People were breaking promises, threatening, ignoring, and excluding us. Even the dogs were in a hyper-tension mode! The remarkable thing was that we both died to our imaginary self at the same time. I withdrew to my room, and Carol was in the apartment. I stayed in the dark silence of the room waiting for my imaginary self to die. Relief always comes when"I" Awarenessthe is all there is. This True Self lacks nothing within itself, and is always fulfilled, simply by being itself. As such, peace, fulfillment and happiness is its ever-present nature. 

Without communicating with one another, Carol appeared at the Shakespeare balcony and I arrived in the kitchen at the same time. Calling to me from the balcony like Romeo calling Juliette, she invited me to come on up to the apartment. That's when we realized we had both been set free from the imaginary self at the same time. We celebrated the joy that was in our hearts. We had reclaimed our True Identity; this open, empty, undisturbable and naturally fulfilled presence of Awareness - it finds or recognises itself - ever-present, unlimited and without agitation or lack. That discovery is the experience of peace and happiness for which the imaginary self was in search.

As the moth touches the flame for which it longs, it dies. That is its way of knowing the flame, by dying into it, by becoming it. Likewise, that is the way the imaginary self discovers what it longs for, by dying into it. The imaginary self can never have or know peace and happiness. It can only die or dissolve, and that dissolution is the experience of peace and happiness.


Nancy & Family






























Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child,

So with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings;

Radiating kindness over the entire world

Spreading upwards to the skies, & downwards to the depths; Outwards & unbounded
