Jennifer Dumpert · Liminal Dreaming

Meet Jennifer Dumpert: a San Francisco-based dreamer, lecturer, and author of Liminal Dreaming: Exploring Consciousness at the Edge of Sleep. And that’s what we do today! We drop like stones into the sleepy space between dreams and ordinary waking consciousness, and then attempt to re-combobulate afterwards into coherent human beings.

Sebene Selassie · The Four Elements

Sebene is a meditation teacher, integral coach, Indigenous Focusing Oriented Therapy (IFOT) practitioner and author of You Belong: A Call for Connection. She’s also one of the most popular teachers on the Ten Percent Happier meditation app.

Sebene guides us through the four elements of earth, fire, water, and air. This practice is both powerful and practical. Sebene shows us how to harness the elements to balance our minds and bodies, and how the elements help us understand different aspects of who we are and how we connect to the world around us. A grounding journey into, in Sebene’s words, “our own indigeneity.”

John Prendergast · The Deep Heart

John is the author of The Deep Heart: Our Portal to Presence, a book that explores “the convergence of psychological healing and spiritual awakening.” For John, this happens most clearly and powerfully in the depths of the heart. How do we sensitize ourselves to this subtle space? This is our guide’s expertise. John shows us how to rest in the heart as a way to appreciate and embody a different way of knowing and relating. We ask our hearts about our core limiting beliefs, and what it might mean to no longer believe them.
