Spiritual Limbo: is it time to exit your cave?

Latest from the Members Workshop

In our recent dialogues we’ve been exploring Limbo Land. I have a feeling we are going to spend a lot of focus on this topic. Perhaps I should rename the workshop Limbo Lounge.

We start off with the question Why am I here? In Limbo—not asleep, not fully awake?

I’ve learned through personal experience, as well as mentoring others, that people who have fully awakened as well as those who are not awake, but have fallen some ways down the rabbit hole can end up in Limbo Land.

So the question is, now what? Are you destined to remain suspended in this spiritual amber? If not, how does one leave the cave? If you’ve lost your context in life, where do you find an authentic source of motivation, action, engagement?

"We’ve gotten into the habit of always wanting what’s next. We bring this consumeristic approach to spirituality as well. We learn something, file it away, and want what’s next. The next teaching, the next guru, the next spiritual blogger, the next method, the next initiation, a longer retreat, another psychedelic shamanic journey. We want what’s next when we haven’t even become intimate with the teaching or the experience or the knowledge that is right in front of us." continue reading
