Sacred Circle Mondays 9-11 am
When we sit together in Circle, we wait for inspiration; and when it comes, we speak as the enlightened beings we know ourselves to be.. Everyone is welcome to join us. No reservations are necessary, and there is no fee.....
To Be Announced
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.
During the meditation time we search inside ourselves for the “I” we most fundamentally believe ourselves to be. The work is to put all our attention on the inner feeling of “I”, holding that feeling for as long as possible. Aides in this quest are questions to pose to ourselves; "From where does this 'I' thought arise?" Or "Who am 'I'”?
What we discover is that the “I” which we believe to be our individual self in the world vanishes when searched for. In it's place appears Absolute Being. Residing effortlessly and constantly in unshakable Absolute Being is theAwakened State.
Format For Meditation:
10:00 - 10:15: First Meditation

We sit in silence together most of the time and take breaks occasionally for walking meditation and brief discussions. Participants may come and go as they please while still respecting the silence.
to be announced Healing with Karen
We are happy to have Karen Cole, our beloved energy healer, with us the last Sunday of each month! She has so many modalities of proficiency. During the week she is coordinator of wellness at Central High School here in Cumming. 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.
