Event Details

In this five-hour practice session, you will learn how to not only navigate but thrive through the inevitable challenges of spiritual growth.

There are times on the path when our connection to divinity is strong, clear and obvious. These essential times of expansion are an opportunity to increase our capacity for radiance and joy.

There are also times on the path when our connection to the meaning of spirit appears to be lost. We cannot find our previous connection to the divine either, because it appears to have simply abandoned us or because we are consumed by an extreme hardship. We may be tempted to see these dark nights of the soul as bad times that we must endure and get through. In this day of practice you will discover how to work with the inevitable challenges of life and discover their profound transformative value. You see, if navigated well, these times offer unique opportunities for the growth of our capacity for compassion and wisdom.

In this afternoon of meditation practice and dialog you will discover how to navigate through the hard times, when our higher spirit seems to have abandoned us. You will discover how to find the true source of faith even in our darkest hours.

Come to this workshop if you:

  • know that there is a better way to navigate through the inevitable difficulties we all face.
  • want to learn practices that will help you re-establish your authentic connection to the divine even in the most challenging times.
  • long to feel the support of a loving group of practitioners who are not afraid to face adversity with a big heart.
  • believe in your heart that suffering is more than an endurance test and in fact can be one of our greatest teachers of compassion and love.

Your guides for this adventure:

Jeff Carreira ​has taught meditation and awakening to thousands of people throughout the world for nearly twenty years. After initially working as an engineer and then a school teacher a dramatic awakening experience compelled him to leave his ordinary life completely behind and join an experimental spiritual community. For the next twenty years he was able to engage in extreme amounts of practice and was blessed with countless more awakening experiences and energetic breakthroughs. His teaching is based on the fruits of many years of practice and study and his guidance is always aimed at bringing us into direct contact with our True Self. Jeff is the author of six books on meditation and spiritual philosophy and is about to publish his first novel. He teaches courses, programs and retreats online and in person. You can find more information at ​​.

Nina Dudas ​is an intuitive guide to awakening. Her spiritual inquiry was encouraged from an early age by her first and lifelong teacher – her mother. Her initial awakening experience came as she surrendered completely to a dark night of her soul. On the other side she realized the perfection of all existence as the One Being. Her practice began, and today her highest excitement is people having a direct experience of their own truth. The essence is the same in all beings, but each expression of it is absolutely singular, powerful and necessary. She invites people to discover that connection in themselves, as she holds the space and surrenders with them fully, hand in hand, heart to heart, letting all that is not their truth fall away.
