Sunday Dec. 3 Meditation with Burt 11am-3pm








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, instructed seekers against “standard” meditation practices. He said that meditation requires an object to meditate upon whereas there is only a subject without an object in vichara, the non-dual practice he recommended.

Being in complete agreement with my meditation practice, it is the one I invite you all to. It conforms exactly to what Ramana recommends as the direct path to awakening. 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, sometimes quickly most times slowly, 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 the Awakened State.

You are invited to this practice each month in this very precious space of NaMestoy Farm. An internet search for Non-dual or non-duality will yield many options to study this way. I recommend books by Sri Ramana Maharshi and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj"

"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.  
It's a way of enterring into the quiet that's already there
buried under 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks
every day" (Deepak Chopra, M.D.)

Practiced for thousands of years, medtation is a tool for rediscovering
the body's own inner intelligence. Primordial Sound Meditation uses
mantras to discoonnect us from the activity of life. These primordial 
sounds are based on the vibration the universe was creating at the 
moment of your birth. Practicing Primordial Sound Meditation on a
daily basis will help you manage stress to reduce anxiety, improve
your relationships, create inner peace, enhance your sleep patterns,
lower your blood pressure, and connect more deeply to spirit.

About Our Sacred Circle

When we sit and gaze together in Circle, we wait for inspiration; and when it comes, we speak as the aligned beings we know ourselves to be.. Everyone is welcome to join us. 
No reservations are necessary, and there is no fee.....

I must tell you that our Sacred Circle on Mondays is a most special time for me; and my daughter, Carrie, even plans her visits to NaMestoy around this special gathering. And now we are also attending a similar group on Tuesdays at 1pm hosted by Kim Lemen in her lovely home in Canton. I envision more and more of these Circles of Light shining forth throughout Metropolitan Atlanta. If you, too, feel the call to host a group in your local community, I will be happy to support you in this. When getting started there may be just one person show up, so I would be that third person until there are some regulars attending.

In a country of people who don't seem to have the time to build deep relationships, the Vision Alignment Project presents this vision:
"We see a world where groups and circles of people gather together regularly to support one another in the manifestation of whatever their individual dreams are; where people easily align with each other because everyone wants only for the highest good of all... devoting time together for the sacred aspects of life; where they remember to create a spiritual environment that makes it easy for everyone in the community to experience Oneness."



                       

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.....

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
