Weekend Retreat with John & Christiane Prendergast April 2020

Opening to the Deep Heart

 with John & Christiane Prendergast

April 3-5


Retreat Information

In this retreat, we will explore the multidimensional nature of the heart, ranging from what Ramana Maharshi called the “Heart of Awareness” – non-locatable pure consciousness -to the psychological level of feeling fundamentally lacking, flawed, and separate. As we deepen in the discovery of our true nature, emptying out our limiting self-images and stories and uncovering our inherent love, kindness, and gratitude, the relationship to our conditioned body-mind transforms. Increasingly we experience the universal Heart holding the vulnerable and conditioned human heart with affectionate awareness, supporting its self-liberation.

Through talks and dialogues, silent and guided meditations, potent dyadic meditative inquiries, and several sessions of body sensing and gentle yoga, we will deepen our intimacy with the multidimensional heart.

About John & Christiane

John Prendergast, Ph.D. is a nondual spiritual teacher and psychotherapist in private practice.  He is the author of In Touch: How to tune in to the inner guidance of your body and trust yourself (2015) and the senior editor of The Sacred Mirror (2003) and Listening from the Heart of Silence (2007). He is a retired Adjunct Professor of Psychology at CIIS in San Francisco where he supervised and trained masters level counseling students for twenty-three years.

John studied for many years with the European sage Jean Klein as well as with Adyashanti and was invited to share the dharma by Dorothy Hunt.


Originally from France, Christiane Prendergast studied with Advaita master Jean Klein who taught subtle-body yoga learned from Kashmir Shaivism. Essentially, this is a form of somatic inquiry, where the body, rather than the mind, is the primary portal for the experiential investigation of energy and consciousness. Open to people of all fitness levels, the body is explored through gentle movements and postures, with all the sensations welcomed effortlessly in the open space of awareness.

Registration Information

Weekend retreats and workshops at the Dharma Center have a 2-part “cost:”  Because the teachings are considered priceless and are to be supported by Dana (a voluntary, anonymous offering of no specified amount) we ask that you consider making a Dana offering to the teacher, in gratitude and support of the teachings – as best fits your circumstances and brings you joy in giving.

Secondly, we ask a sliding-scale registration fee to cover the Prendergasts’ expenses and the cost of putting on the retreat.  Scholarships are always available and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
