How the enlightenment transmission enlivens my soul

UPDATE FROM ORIGINAL POST: Dave also posted a YouTube video here (for the first time) so you can see him as he speaks. ————– I wrote two blog posts on enlightenment teacher Dave Oshana a few years ago but nothing recent. I find my tendency is to avoid it because the experience is…difficult to word. Difficulty finding words or labels reminds me of a quote from Eckard Tolle: “the next step in human consciousness... Read More
