October 2017 Retreat in Colorado Springs
In the World but Not of It: Awakening Christ Consciousness
October 20-23, 2017
This retreat with Gina Lake is an opportunity to immerse yourself in Christ Consciousness and to discover who you really are and how to live as Jesus taught long ago. We will invite Jesus and other Ascended Masters to be present and to provide whatever is needed for those who have gathered, including a direct transmission of the Ascended Masters’ love and light and channeled words of comfort and wisdom. We will be examining the nature of the clouds that obscure the blue sky of Pure Awareness, how to clear those clouds, and how to live from a place of clarity, peace, and love. You will have opportunities each day to ask questions and work with Gina around any issues that may be blocking your freedom, love, and peace. Talks, dialogues, guided meditation, music, and inquiry will be used to break through to a new level of being.
You will learn:
• The secret to peace, love, and happiness,
• How your egoic mind creates and maintains the illusion of the false self,
• How to clear negativity,
• How to work with difficult emotions,
• How to tell when you are identified with the ego,
• How to disidentify from the ego,
• Techniques for becoming present and staying in Presence,
• Spiritual practices, including meditation, inquiry, and prayer, that support Presence,
• How to embody the divine self in the world, and
• What awakening and enlightenment are.
From the Introduction by Jesus to In the World but Not of It: “What I have come to teach now is that you can embody love, as I did. You can become Christ within this human life and learn to embody all that is good within you. I came to show you the beauty of your own soul and what is possible as a human. I came to show you that it is possible to be both human and divine, to be love incarnate. You are equally both. You walk with one foot in the world of form and another in the Formless.”
"The consciousness that is within me is also within you. You are the son as equally as I am. You are the ‘I am’ I spoke about. You and I are one. You and everyone else are one. Many are ready for the Christ within to come forward and manifest in the world more fully. The birthing of this Christ—of Christ Consciousness—is the true second coming. ‘Christ Consciousness,’ as I am using it, points to the divinity within everyone and the potential for that divinity to become a living reality, to become what lives you. I was an example of that possibility in my lifetime two thousand years ago.”

Our sleeping accommodations will be in both Francis Place and Marian Hall. The Franciscan Retreat Center grounds are beautiful.
