Welcome to The Consciousness Explorers Club
Being human takes practice
Join our monthly newsletter for announcements about our meditations, explorations, retreats, courses and events.
In 2017, the Consciousness Explorers Club is rolling out a new programming paradigm. Starting in January, each month will be dedicated to a particular path of practice: mindfulness, surrender, concentration, intellectual inquiry, art, emotional health, the body, nature, story, action, devotion, and finally – in December – Rock n Roll, our path of celebratory freedom and jackassery, where we explode the whole year, and start over again with some new configuration.
Many people, especially busy urban dwellers, feel overwhelmed and undernourished. They struggle alone with their challenges, and are only rarely able to discuss – let alone practice – deep matters of belonging and connection and embodiment. The vision of The Consciousness Explorers Club (CEC) is to provide a fun and accessible venue where people can discuss these things as they emerge from perspective-altering spiritual and psychological and social practices. Our members go on mind-body adventures – together and independently – and then share their insights and discoveries and inspiration with the community.

In meditation the skill of concentration is both the engine and steering wheel of practice. Very simply, concentration is the skill of intentionally controlling attention. Putting your mind where you want it to go rather than letting it be swept wherever the winds of unconscious mental habits would carry it.
New class starts Wednesday, January 25th!
Not your typical meditation and yoga winter getaway. In addition to the daily yoga flows and meditation sits and beach lounging and ocean surfing and community chill-sessions and tropical monkey staring contests, every night we’ll going to explore a different aspect of consciousness. So: a lucid dreaming workshop, body archetype exploration, self-Inquiry practice, campfire kirtan, and guided Disco-swing dance party finale. A winter yoga and meditation retreat to reset your mind and reinvigorate your life.
Dates: Feb 11 – 18, 2017
“I approach meditation for what it is: a thrilling exploration – and transformation – of consciousness. Course features a mix of guided practice, discussion, and weekly meditation-in-action homework assignments. It is both practical and contemplative, with an honest take on both the limitations of meditation practice, as well as its strange and beautiful existential dimensions.”
Next class starts April 5, 2017. Click for more info and to register.
