What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

The Way of Perception: The Alchemical Transformation From Darkness to Light

Perception is the main path towards emptiness and the key to transform the ego’s contraction (state of non-surrender, tension) and fears into radiance and joy.

Shakti Caterina Maggi will use experiential meditations and Q&A to show us the center of the egoic contraction where there is only pure emptiness, something that is mistakenly conceived as fragile or vulnerable, but in actuality is openness itself disguised as someone.

Apparent shadows and conflicts become an opportunity to discover our talents and enjoy the blossoming of our individuality. Stillness itself, and “being human,” is the true reason why we appear as a human body, so that we can bring the Light of Awareness into form, without the sense of separation.
