"Ego-work pokes a
finger in a wound.
But then, like a gift:
you become aware of it,
and do what needs
to be done to heal it."
WHAT is the ego? Why is it a "wound," and why do we need to "heal" it?
It doesn't take long on the spiritual path to begin to hear about the ego. Often, it's vilified and described as Public Enemy #1 on the road to higher levels of consciousness.
Or, it's seen as something we must annihilate or destroy—hence: ego death.
In THE EGO 101, we'll flip the script on these common narratives and learn how to approach the ego in a way that is both nourishing and supportive of a larger spiritual process.
We can start here: The ego isn't inherently bad—it can become the instrument that we utilize to express an expanded state of being. The ego does not die—but rather dies to itself any Self-limiting identifications that naturally arise in the process of living in service to something Greater than itself.
Q: How will we start?
Q: What will you talk about?
Q: What will I walk away with?
Q: I'm in! How do I register?
A: We will begin our time together with a short grounding meditation to encourage us to enter the space with renewed clarity. And then, I will go right into giving my talk about the ego!
THE EGO 101 will get right to the point:
What is the ego?
Why is it relevant on the spiritual path?
What can we do to work with it?
Throughout my talk, I'll offer insights about:
the spiritual context of the ego itself [why does it exist within the Divine play of Consciousness?!],
the ego vs. the personality.
the importance of working with it in relation to Grace [you can purchase my Grace talk here before THE EGO 101 to gain some valuable context],
& traditional and modern approaches to working with it.
A: You will walk away with more confidence to begin relating with your own ego and the egos of others. You will walk away with a new framework for why the ego exists in the first place, and the role that it plays in the larger Divine Dance of life itself. You will walk away with a perspective on the ego that is supportive of your own spiritual process and awakening. You will not walk away feeling like there is a part of you that you need to destroy. Rather, you'll walk away with a deeper understanding of how to utilize this misunderstood aspect of the human experience, not only for the sake of your own evolution —but also for the sake of all beings.
AND: You'll also walk away with the recording of our time together. :) :) :) :)
