Wake Up and Love:
Embodying Grace in Uncertain Times
5 Day Home Retreat with Miranda Macpherson
Monday 25 - Friday 29 May 2020
Join Miranda Macpherson from the comfort and safety of your own home for this 5 day virtual retreat which will be delivered via Zoom.
"You do not need to know what is happening, or where it is all going.
What you need to recognize are the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment,
And to embrace them with courage, faith and love.
The world is transparent and the Divine is shining through all the time”.
Living from a consciousness of real love in each moment is surely the core curriculum of being human, and the most important fruit of spiritual practice. It calls us to wake up out habitual ways of being and relating, and bring every defence to the light of unconditional awareness. This retreat is dedicated to liberating you from the unnecessary bondage of your story, and in particular, how that story pays out in your most important relationships and way of being in the world. Gain greater precision on your path and deepen your capacity to embody the love you are.
These five days together will provide a safe container to dive within and let our personal, relational and collective confusions unwind in a ground of grace.
"The intimacy and deep connection with Miranda and the other participants was a welcome surprise for this virtual retreat. There was nothing "removed" about it. Miranda's exquisite Presence and teaching was immediately and profoundly felt. This was greatly enhanced by the opportunity to work with Miranda and to share with each other through Inquiry and Satsang. This engendered a wonderful sense of spiritual community as we held each other in unconditional acceptance and Love. Having been in a number of in person retreats with Miranda which were amazing, I can highly recommend a virtual retreat with her in which she transmitted palpable Grace, deep connection with participants, joyous chanting, wonderful meditations and profound teaching so relevant to our times right now. We need this broader virtual community now more that ever as we navigate these unsettling experiences that life is bringing to us. We can discover that there is a precious gift in the midst of all of this."

Together, we will journey through the most important themes of your life, into the unending ocean of clarity, kindness, compassion, courage, fulfilment and joy within you. Taking our seat in the Boundless Love of our true identity, we will explore what it takes to relate and move through daily life from this depth of being.
Through holistic self-inquiry, meditation and devotion we will explore:
* Facing what scares you with curiosity and compassion.
* Receiving love – accessing spiritual nourishment.
* Embracing your life circumstances as a divine curriculum.
* Abiding into the non-dual condition of Boundless Love.
* Embodying the love you ARE in a world in need of your unique gifts.
Miranda's vision is to integrate The Way of Grace teachings and practices with a specific emphasis on the themes that she feels will best support us given these uncertain times. In addition, Miranda will emphasize supporting inner peace and holistic well-being. Spiritual practices that reduce stress and cultivate equanimity is one of the most powerful positive things you can do to boost your immune system.
"This virtual retreat was one of the most meaningful group experiences of my life, in-person experiences included. The fact that it was offered with such care right as the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic became real for us -- at a time of unprecedented loss, uncertainty, and disorientation for the human family -- was, for me, a blessing beyond measure."

"The Zoom retreat brought the immediacy and intimacy of onsite retreat to the ease and comfort of being at home, sleeping in my own bed! Furthermore, the way the experience integrated into my ordinary at home life brought a richness and depth unique to this venue."
