Un-Selfing the Self: Dissolving into the Divine

End Date and Time

Mystics from all spiritual traditions describe the disappearance of one’s self into the Absolute. And the world’s many contemplative traditions speak of the necessity of it: ‘dying to self’ and ‘self-emptying’ in Christianity; ‘self-less service’ and ‘true Self’ in Hinduism; ‘no self’ and ‘beyond self’ in Zen Buddhism; ‘self-renunciation’ and ‘losing one’s self in the Beloved’ in Sufism; and ‘freedom from the bondage of self’
in 12-step programs.
False self, true self, no self, self vs Self – what does all this mean? Surely “I” exist, so what does it mean for me to ‘un-self the self’? And why is it so important for spiritual growth and encountering the Divine? In this retreat, we will explore ‘un-selfing the self’ from a variety of contemplative perspectives so that it may offer compelling inspiration for our spiritual journeys and everyday lives.
