Having trouble with spam

Yosemite falls, Spring 07
Dear All,

Because of a ridiculous amount of spam that is coming in through this blog, I am considering what is best to do. Deleting spam is not something that I enjoy doing a LOT of. If anyone knows how to deal with this issue in WordPress blogs, let me know. Until then, I think I’ll see if I can make this blog disallow comments altogether. If people wish to communicate, just send me an email. My email box has better spam filters. Thanks for understanding,

Alice

Small Group Mentoring session starting in mid April 2007

greyhills.jpg

For the first time the Awakeness Mentoring will now be offered as a group session, which just means that up to eight people start around the same time for a ten week period doing the one-on-one mentoring over the telephone with Alice, but the group members will also have additional options for supporting each other both during and after the ten week mentoring session is finished. A passworded part of the blog will be made available to those eight people, and also there will be the possibility of group phone calls if there is interest in that. If you are interested in doing the mentoring with a small group of others, please let Alice know right away at alice@wideawakeliving.com and she will hold a place for you until your payment arrives. Details are at http://www.wideawakeliving.com/Mentoring/letter.html

Namaste,

Alice

Developing a Support System for Awakening

img_0306.jpg

It gives me great pleasure to announce the availability of what is being called “Awakeness Mentoring” on the Wide Awake Living website. This very simple model of mentoring is based on knowing that it is not the personal self of the mentor who is offering support to the personal self of the mentee. Rather it is the setting aside of space for the inherent mutual awakeness that already exists as both people to live, move and speak that is the essential factor.

To set aside this space in the midst of our busy lives, is to commit to allowing awakeness to extend itself into all the areas of our busy modern lives. We are not informed by the mentor as to how to live, but are supported in our own awakeness, and in externalizing our own already present knowing about awakening and living that awakening in the midst of our daily lives.

The conditioning that may continue to obscure that awakeness serves to illuminate and energize the process of clearing itself. We find ourselves in the midst of the exactly perfect life for us. We find ourselves to have been already awake all along.

This “method”, almost “non-method” of mentoring has been in use since July of 2006, but is only now being offered publicly, after an extensive period of working with it for free with a variety of people in various settings and situations. The results of that process are very encouraging and it is an honor to offer it now through the website at this link: Awakeness Mentoring.

The first session is free, so that you can see what it is like, and see if the energy is right for its being an effective part of your support system for awakening and living it fully.

Blessings, Alice

Progress with “Life Beyond Belief”

Surf on the Rocks

The new book, “Life Beyond Belief, Everyday Life as Spiritual Practice” has now reached a milestone, and an edited version has been sent out to peer reviewers, and proofreaders and such. It will be a month before those comments and corrections come in, but until then, I would like to offer this community the opportunity to preview an excerpt. I will put some pdf files below for your reading enjoyment, along with some recent photos from a trip to Point Lobos, near Monterey Peninsula.

Chapter 6 is still being offered with new subscriptions.

Life Beyond Belief, mine too

This weekend has been brought a most wonderful surprise. I have finished the first draft of the book “Life Beyond Belief”. It has taken four months in total and at the moment it is 145 pages long. I am sure there will be LOTS of editing to do, but it has been a truly amazing experience to have had it just flow out from me in this way. Each chapter has been a personal journey of both writing and living the material all together. Even if no one ever reads it, it was a wonderful experience to write it. But maybe people will want to read it! If so, now I need to do a lot of learning about what happens next, as well as doing editing. I am enjoying it totally, and hope that many of you out there might also enjoy it one day soon.

A Global Community on the Web

First Alice needs to figure out how to manage a blog site!! Anyone want to be of assistance? I will be working on setting this blog up over then next month or so, and anyone who is intrigued by the idea of using this software to create an online support for awakening folks out there who do not have more immediate more human support, then I would be delighted to work together on this.
