With Zen Buddhist Meditation Teacher and Author
Deborah Eden Tull
New 7-week Live Audio Training Starts
Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Bring graceful closure to a whole year of life and set mindful, powerful intentions for 2019.

Get off the hamster wheel of self-improvement — and access the ease of your TRUE essence and highest purpose.

Have you ever longed to start the new year in a different way — free from the “shoulds” we resolve to achieve — yet deeply committed to living and breathing your heart’s truth?

Imagine stepping through a powerful gateway in January... into a new world of compassionate self-reflection, clear seeing, and self-renewal.

Imagine what’s possible when you greet your own self with the Zen spirit of Beginner’s Mind — and you approach the new year consciously — open, willing, receptive to the mystery of what’s to come, and POWERFUL in your ability to make your goals a reality...

You would harvest the teachings of the past year while releasing the difficulties.

You’d retrieve lost parts of yourself and be your own compassionate mentor for the life you’re here to lead in the year ahead.

You’d clear obstacles to your heart so you can align with the peace that’s already within you.

And you’d experience deep self-love and unconditional compassion...

By stepping through that threshold, you’d access the organic unfolding of ease.

This ease would become a river flowing out to everything in your life — your relationships... your work... your home... your dreams... and the way you create positive change in the world.

The good news is, this threshold is open to you now.

In Threshold to Freedom, renowned meditation teacher and emerging spiritual leader Deborah Eden Tull will show you how to cross this threshold, enabling you to dissolve separation and ignite interconnection...

In this transformational 7-week journey — through engaged meditation, mindful inquiry, creative expression, deep listening, and sacred ritual — you’ll explore:

WIth care and compassion, Eden will guide you in setting your intentions and doing the work of accountability to make your goals reality.

Eden has made it her life’s work to help people discover how to integrate compassionate awareness into every aspect of their lives. She’ll show you a different kind of template for starting the new year...

One that gives you loving support through the process of bringing graceful closure to a whole year of life — and consciously and powerfully seeding your next cycle in the year ahead.

During this heart-opening, life-changing 7-week program, you’ll discover:

  • The real meaning of the Zen teaching of compassionate self-discipline
  • What supports you need to stay on course — and how to get them
  • How to make sure that your heart (and not your ego) is in charge of your spiritual practice
  • The gift of vulnerability and asking for help
  • Ways to commit to process over product, in how you treat yourself and engage in our world
  • How Relational Mindfulness teaches you to be even more present and powerful in the interpersonal field (and honest yet empowered in relationship with the state of our world)

Special LIVE WORKSHOP Class When You Register TODAY!

Since Eden’s 7-week program does not officially begin until January, Eden has decided to lead a LIVE virtual bonus workshop for you before the official course start date.

LIVE Workshop: Applying the 9 Principles of Mindfulness During the Holidays
(Saturday, December 15 at 10:00am Pacific)

The intention is to help you “clear out the departing year” as well as supporting you in navigating the holidays. Eden will share with you the principles of Relational Mindfulness, including Deep Listening, Mindful Inquiry, the Mindful Pause, and more. Enjoy 90 minutes of teaching and 30 minutes of practice time!

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

Course sessions are on Tuesdays at Noon Pacific.

In this 7-week transformational intensive, Eden will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully bring graceful closure to a whole year of life and set mindful, powerful intentions for 2019.

Each weekly LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to access the ease of your TRUE essence and highest purpose.

Module 1: Seeing Through the Solidity of Your Sense of Self (January 8)

All that's required for our healing is the willingness to remember who we authentically are. Although the mind of separation has carried us far away from the love that is who we are, this love never leaves us — it is only ever we who leave it.

The more clearly you understand that you are not your conditioning, the more you become in touch with your authentic self or essence. Your essence is the unique way that consciousness illuminates you. As long as you maintain an outward focus in life, your attention is turned away from your essence.

Module 1 begins with an exploration of conscious compassionate awareness — the essence of Zen and the foundation for our journey. We will invoke the teaching of Beginner’s Mind and the spirit of curiosity as we step into mindful self-reflection.

The word “mindfulness” translates in Pali and Sanskrit to “remembering”... remembering who you really are beyond your limiting beliefs, identities, and conditioning. We’ll practice gentle attention, designed to help you discover that your sense of self is not solid, but held together by repetitive thought patterns.

We’ll explore how the myth of separation operates within us, thereby distracting us from our natural sense of wholeness and harmony with life.

In this module, you’ll begin to compassionately review your life in 2018 in order to integrate the depth of your experience from the past 12 months. You’ll pull out weeds from the past year, preparing the soil for the seeds of self-acceptance and renewal.

The spirit of Zen teaches that while sitting meditation is our training, ordinary life is our practice. Daily life will be your laboratory throughout this journey, and you’ll discover how to meet yourself with presence and fierce compassion in daily life.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Explore how to apply the principles of Relational Mindfulness to your relationship with yourself
  • Use gentle self-inquiry to see through your conditioned responses and strategies to a more spacious sense of wholeness underneath
  • Consciously review the year 2018 (from the heart rather than through the lens of judging, measuring, or comparing) in order to harvest the lessons from the past year
  • Discover how to “get out of the way” so that your personal growth can evolve organically, rather than through striving and efforting
  • Allow the realization of impermanence to inspire your willingness to be free... not “some day” but right here and right now

Module 2: Recognizing the Emptiness at the Heart of Self-improvement (January 15)

You’ll find great relief in getting off the treadmill of self-improvement. And great relief in seeing that there’s an easier — and also more powerful, demanding, and joyful — path to allowing yourself to be who you’re here to be.

Real practice does not begin until we drop our reasons for practicing altogether. Mindfulness is not about self-improvement. It is only ego that cares about “fixing ourselves,” “getting somewhere,” and “attaining something.” There is nowhere to get to and nothing to change or improve upon. We sit to remember the compassionate awareness that exists when we stop doing everything else. We sit to learn to meet life’s ups and downs from true compassion.

The myth of self-improvement can take endless time, resources, and money as we feed the notion that there is “something wrong” with us. When you access true acceptance and clear seeing, you realize that you’ve already arrived. You finally come home, to yourself and to your place in the world.

Self-acceptance is not a field of stagnant resignation. Ironically, it is the field from which you can love and support yourself into growth and fulfillment beyond anything you’ve imagined.

In this second module, we’ll see through our strategies for self-improvement, leading you to a larger understanding of how to create long-term sustainable change in your life. You’ll further harvest the teachings of 2018. And you’ll clear out obstacles to your heart so you can align with the peace that is already within you. We’ll also practice acceptance and forgiveness... both of ourselves and of others.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to see yourself (and others) more clearly, from the heart
  • Harvest honestly and fully from life’s lessons in 2018
  • Discover how to erase the dividing line that most of us have internalized, which creates the misunderstanding that aspects of us (and thus aspects of humanity) are lovable, while other aspects are not
  • Develop clear seeing in relationship to limiting beliefs and ego habit patterns
  • Explore a forgiveness practice that you can bring into everyday life, which will help you let go of residue from difficulties in the past year

Module 3: Opening to the Heart’s Recognition of a Deeper Reality (January 22)

This is the module in which you’ll be ripe and ready to create your new declarations for the year ahead.

Your essence carries innate qualities — timeless, ordinary, immeasurable — that are unrelated to effort and judgment. The ordinary self has no self-consciousness, no pretense, and no need to be seen as “special,” for it perceives no lack and does not live in the realm of comparison. It can also be called “no self” because it points to the quality of presence you emanate when you allow yourself to be free of identity... and to surrender to the spaciousness of awareness.

You will find it an extraordinary relief to encounter the perfection of your ordinary self in a world that is screaming loudly, “There is something better out there! There is someplace else you need to be. There is something more you need to prove! There is something you might not find!”

Embracing your essence ends the charade of conditioning, and all that’s left is acknowledgement of the preciousness of your unique expression of life — and the unique expression of all forms of life. You finally relax, aware that there is nothing worth more than being who you already are.

In this module, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how to let go of the limiting beliefs that have held you back in the past year. And you’ll gain deeper understanding of the quality of evolution, growth, and joy that’s possible when you fully accept yourself, and set your intentions with clear seeing.

You’ll take a guided journey to access your deepest intentions for your life and the year ahead. You’ll access your dreams, clarity, hopes, and visions. And you’ll explore practices for courageously stepping into and maintaining the powerful intentions you set for 2019. You’ll retrieve lost parts of yourself and uncover knowings that have gotten set aside or covered up by habit.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover how to move on, once and for all, from core limiting beliefs that have held you back
  • Create powerful intentions for 2019 through a guided process that takes you beyond limited notions of self and possibility
  • Reconnect with lost parts of yourself and commit to further wholeness
  • Explore the empowerment of humility, the place beyond self-deprecation and self-aggrandizement
  • Gain the understanding that relaxation is the seat of compassionate self-discipline, and that awareness works hand in hand with evolution and life goals
  • Discover how to trust the extraordinary nature of ordinary self
  • More powerfully take your seat where you actually belong, positioned to live and express yourself from powerful, peaceful presence

Module 4: Metabolizing & Moving Beyond Fear, Resistance, and Doubt Meeting Every Part of You With Compassion (January 29)

We need courage in our world right now.

Even when we’re willing to awaken to interconnection, there are aspects of our psyches that continue to resist and make the process much more difficult than necessary. It’s helpful to understand that resistance in all its forms — fear, procrastination, or attachment to victimization — is just a false protection against the all-powerful force of love.

Even though we say we want peace, freedom, and intimacy, ego is terrified. The more your meditation practice deepens and the more you step beyond the confines of old self, the more you need to learn how to meet ego skillfully — with awareness, precision, and a light heart. When you understand the nature of fear and resistance more fully, you gain insight into how to maintain clear seeing in the face of doubt. You can actualize your commitments and turn your dreams into reality.

With this part of the course, you’ll gain insight into how to show up — again and again — expressing your commitment to love rather than fear. You’ll explore... now that you’ve set powerful intentions, how do you stay true to them? How do you meet every part of you — even resistance — with compassion?

In this module, you’ll:

  • Explore the so-called “negative” emotions. How do you hold hands with fear, aversion, anger, grief, and boredom (and work with these states compassionately)?
  • Meet your inner resistance as an opportunity to renew commitment
  • Discover where to access willingness and genuine courage
  • Recognize what’s possible when you’re willing to be generous enough with yourself to call upon support on all sides
  • Understand what it means to connect with your future self, through the field of present-moment awareness, and to seek their guidance
  • Take even more creative, courageous, and playful steps towards your heart’s intentions
  • Learn how to discern when negative motivators impact your decision-making

Module 5: Living a Deeper Truth in Your Body by Aligning With a More Authentic Pace (February 5)

Are you finding that you cannot keep up with the ever-increasing speed of everyday life?

We can read all the books in the world about meditation and come to a deep intellectual understanding of it without having embodied its teachings. A good teacher can point to the experience of awareness, but it is up to each individual to cultivate an actualized practice. Practice does not just mean sitting on the cushion and finding stillness, but also learning to pay attention in every aspect of our lives.

It is one thing to have an understanding of compassionate awareness, and another thing to fully embody it.

In this module, you’ll take your intentions for 2019 to a deeper level and learn how to trust your body as your guide.

Part of living from our center is remembering the choice that we have in every moment of our lives. Regardless of external circumstances, compassionate awareness is always with us. It never leaves us, though we regularly leave it.

Having a practice in today’s world requires that we bring discernment to how we engage, or not, with collective conditioning. While there is a collective habit of busyness, burnout, stress, and the belief in “not enough time,” through practice we can find a more authentic pace and organic rhythm.

When we turn to the teachings of mindfulness and of nature, we learn how to reside in the spaciousness within, no matter what we are doing. In this module, we will explore practices for slowing down and finding our authentic pace in everyday life.

You’ll explore the teaching of process over product, and learn practices for personal sustainability and balance. Working in partnership with nature and cultivating sustainability begins by learning to work in partnership with yourself in a more subtle and attuned way.

In this module, you’ll engage in:

  • A personal exploration of balance and personal sustainability
  • Tuning into your physical experience and breath as the gateway to stillness
  • A Buddhist perspective on energetic hygiene and self-care
  • Practices to help you stay connected to your natural feedback system and make choices from your body and the still, small voice within
  • Practices for self-care and peace through both stillness and chaos
  • Setting goals for the year ahead — through the lens of presence and wisdom rather than future-focused and disembodied planning

Module 6: Relational Mindfulness Deep Listening as the Path (February 12)

Relational Mindfulness is based on the understanding that we are inherently whole, connected, and lovable — even with our imperfections. It asks us to affirm this understanding through how we relate.

Relational Mindfulness invites us to acknowledge our innate capacity for intimacy. It invites us to release or let go of who we’ve been and the perceived limitations we’ve been operating under, and instead be willing to risk. As we do so, we find that we do indeed have the capacity to meet each moment with loving presence.

We find that we become more loving and receptive to love. We find that when we are powerfully present we are equipped for intimacy with others. We find that by reclaiming our inner authority, we give others permission to do the same. We find that we have increased capacity to navigate challenges and conflict from the heart and are more empowered to contribute positively to any situation.

The teachings of Relational Mindfulness, which we've been learning to use within ourselves throughout this course, offer generous guidance for how to engage with each other more skillfully.

Every relationship we will ever have begins with the quality of relationship we have with ourselves. All of our relationships and communications are impacted by our willingness to live from compassionate awareness.

In this module, you’ll receive a teaching on how to bring the following principles of Relational Mindfulness to your interpersonal field:

  • Intention
  • The Sacred Pause
  • Deep Listening
  • Mindful Inquiry and Clear Seeing
  • Transparency
  • Turning Towards, Rather Than Away
  • Not Taking Anything Personally
  • Taking Responsibility
  • Compassionate Action

Module 7: Meeting the World Skillfully, Mindfully & Courageously (February 19)

It is natural for every single human being alive today to feel some degree of sadness, confusion, rage, powerlessness, and grief about the state of the world.

We would have to be utterly numb to not be impacted by the ongoing destruction of the living systems on this planet. When we witness life with an unguarded heart, we feel our deep cellular sensitivity and pain for the 500-year-old tree being cut down, for the whale being blasted out of its habitat by sound pollution, and for the young man incarcerated as a result for a bias related to his skin color.

When we ignore our feelings and allow ourselves to “numb out,” we diminish our power. We also diminish our sensitivity to life, which is the signature of interconnection. When we are healing, it’s not just for ourselves, but for all beings we share this planet with, now and in generations past and those yet to come.

In our final module, you’ll look more deeply at how to embody your personal intentions and practice Relational Mindfulness within the context of tumultuous times.

How can we meet the state of our world with a wide-open heart rather than from fear and reactivity? The principles of Relational Mindfulness are helpful in how we relate to the larger world, and what it means to live in partnership with nature and with life. They help you take care of yourself while responding to the struggles and suffering of our world.

In this final module, you’ll:

  • Explore your intentions for the world at large by turning towards your feelings and investigating both your reactivity and your perception of limitation
  • Acquire skills for compassionate engagement and communication
  • Gain insight into how to meet global uncertainty with a wide-open heart rather than fear and reactivity
  • Understand your personal intention and practice as an offering to all beings everywhere
  • Balance action in the world with withdrawal from the world to practice self-inquiry 
  • Discover how to know when to act on behalf of others — not out of fear or judgment, but out of wise action

“Working with Eden offers the opportunity to come home to all of who you are...”

When I said my work with Eden moved me forward in a way nothing else has, I didn’t mean “forward” in a self-improvement way — I meant forward as in unstuck — unstuck from self-hatred, from isolation, from being unable to receive love. Working with Eden offers the opportunity to come home to all of who you are — no one or nothing left out.

More Praise for Deborah Eden Tull...

“Our work together has generated my great respect for her integrity.”

Eden Tull meets us where we live: in constant interaction with self, other, world. What she offers is both ancient and to the moment. She draws on the Buddha’s timeless teachings, absorbed in her years as a monk, and ripened now by her engagement with the challenges of a society in crisis. Our work together has generated my great respect for her integrity.
Joanna Macy, Co-author of Coming Back to Life

“Eden has distilled... many years of monastic practice into pure essence...”

Eden has distilled learning from many years of monastic practice into pure essence, and [her book Relational Mindfulness] makes that wisdom available to anyone. Its storytelling, practices, and exercises will bring anyone great benefit, and they are clear, needed, and timely. For greater inner peace, personal alignment, and increasing your vital, present, and kind experience of life, I commend it to you.
Nina Simons, Co-founder of Bioneers and Director of Everywoman’s Leadership

“... she guides us in embodying the change, rather than just thinking about it...”

Deborah Eden Tull teaches an awareness of the big picture of our relationship with food, and offers a powerful, inspiring manifesto for how to apply this greater awareness to our daily lifestyle, starting with the meals we eat. Through her grounded and compassionate approach to sustainability and inspiring stories from sustainable communities, she guides us in embodying the change, rather than just thinking about it.
Penny Livingston-Stark, Co-director of Regenerative Design Institute

“... will change your life and how you relate to food and to the planet...”

Deborah Eden Tull's [work] will change your life and how you relate to the planet on a daily basis... a guide to help people make the shift from “consumers” to “earth stewards,” and teaches an approach to sustainable living that is about celebrating nature, mindfulness, community, pleasure, and long-term sustainability, rather than convenience and short-sightedness.
Helena Norberg-Hodge, Founder of the International Society for Ecology and Culture and author of Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh

“... a wake-up call for our times.”

Skillfully weaving practical exercises, personal stories, and illuminating observations, Deborah Eden Tull shows us how we can practice everywhere: personally, relationally, socially, and ecologically. [Her] wise and compassionate [work] is a wake-up call for our times.
Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center and author of Fully Present: The Science, Art, and Practice of Mindfulness

“... a much needed complement to traditional dharma teachings and practices.”

I have found Eden’s Relational Mindfulness is a much-needed complement to traditional dharma teachings and practices. It has introduced me to a unique interpersonal dimension of awareness that has its own path from confusion to insight. At the same time, it is nothing other than the mind recognizing its own compassionate and empty essence. Eden is well acquainted with this space and the practices that unfold it. Her gifts in this regard will bring tremendous benefit to anyone willing to look into the mirror of relationship.
Lama Karma Justin Wall, Tibetan Buddhist teacher

“Her ability to stay fully present and compassionate through it all is astounding.”

I’m not sure I can put my full experience of being... with Eden into words. The magic and the depth of connection that I have experienced through her teaching cannot be fully understood with words. I would highly recommend a person experiencing Eden’s teachings and work for themselves. Her ability to stay fully present and compassionate through it all is astounding.
Nicole Taher, Los Angeles, California

“... an authentic, gentle, compassionate, and wise teacher.”

Eden is such an authentic, gentle, compassionate, and wise teacher. I first heard her teaching online and she has become my favorite teacher since. I feel honored and extremely grateful to have been able to take part in her online course — it has already changed my life and how I relate to people and to myself. A bow of gratitude to Eden for embodying the teachings!

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What’s a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live and pre-recorded teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device, or telephone. If there’s more than one person in your household taking the course, you’ll each need your own connection. We use Zoom videoconferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes.

There’s no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. Please note that dialing Zoom from your telephone is a toll call; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. International access numbers are available.

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.

Q: Can you tell me about the private online community group?
