The retreat will focus on recognizing our already "enlightened mind"
directly in experience.
All personal suffering and egoic meditation practices
can finally come to an end.

The practice of the retreat is the "sudden enlightenment"
as transmitted in Zen and Tibetan Dzogchen.
He will also be teaching two other very powerful Dzogchen practices
known as "thogal" and "yang ti”.
Both bring about very profound insights and realizations.

New Project Japan Pilgrimage with Crystal started from 2014!

Just before James' mother passed away,
he received a vision to place as many crystals as possible in Japan, to bring the realms of the living, dead, and Nature spirits.

We started going all over Japan, from the northern island called Hokkaido to the southern island called Okinawa.

Secred Gathering with Hopi in 2007

Awake Nature Began its latest chapter in Malibu, California. In May of 2007, members of the Native American Nations of Hopi and Chumash, brought a message of the sacredness of the Earth, and the blessings of pure water, which must be shared equally with everyone, and not be controlled by private corporations.

It was here I met Ruben Saufkie, a Sacred Water-Keeper of the Hopi, who I learned was travelling to Japan on the 5th of November. After my arrival in Tokyo, I connected with him, and scheduled a small workshop at Turtle Shrine in Zushi. The night he arrived, rain was falling, and we wondered what the turnout would be like. As you can see, the event was a great success!
