Open to boundless love, deeper happiness and peace, and discover how to experience life as a blessing that continually contributes to your growth and wholeness

Do you recognize that God is in everything and everyone, but find it difficult to live this awareness in daily life?

Are you challenged to sustain an open-hearted love that brings joy and meaning to your life and those around you?

And do you still find yourself rejecting parts of yourself?

If so, you’re in good company. Almost everyone who is on a spiritual path and longs to serve as a pure vessel of love and grace falls short time and time again.

We all get reactive, and disappointed with life at times. Not being able to live up to the higher consciousness you experience in your most enlightened moments can be frustrating and cause a lot of self-judgement.

At times, the challenge of living a fully awakened life can seem insurmountable. To experience the Divine in each moment requires a level of awareness that seems unachievable in the midst of our everyday world.

We may idealize saints and “realized beings” but secretly suspect that we’re incapable of attaining the state they live from.

As a result, we may feel hopeless and get annoyed, depressed or cynical.

That’s why so many spiritual seekers strive to transcend their humanity. They’re seeking to get beyond the muck, challenge and ordinariness of their daily lives.

As you may have discovered, that doesn’t work. Trying to bypass the aspects of yourself that you deem as less than holy actually sinks you deeper into the quicksand of separation from your actual divinity.

Why?

If God is in everything, then God is in the aspects of yourself that you turn away from in denial, guilt or shame. When you distance yourself from these aspects, you distance yourself from God.

To live in a state of boundless love in which you see all things as an expression of the Divine, you need to integrate and include all the parts of yourself that seem to be obstacles on your path of awakening.

By exploring and embracing the full spectrum of your humanity AS a reflection of your divinity, you can relax into a vaster identity and stop resisting so much of your experience of life.

You open to the sacred essence that is your birthright.

You open to the profound blessing of each and every moment.

This is what it means to open to God Consciousness — to see everything as a blessing and an expression of love.

Only when you accept and embrace what you see as your imperfections can you reclaim the beauty, majesty and perfection of your true identity.

This kind of inner work requires a courageous commitment to self-forgiveness and self-love — and the willingness to recognize where you identify with a more limited and contracted vision of yourself.

That’s why we created the Living From God Consciousness program — to lovingly support you to live from a full-bodied, integrated awakening and state of loving acceptance of your full self.

As you do, the world comes alive around you!

The Power of an Authentic, Awake Teacher

The Living From God Consciousness program is led by a remarkable female mystic who underwent a life-changing spiritual awakening that shifted the core of her being — and prepared her to lead others in catalyzing deep shifts.

Her name is Miranda Macpherson, and her story offers a uniquely modern tale of awakening that builds upon the lineages of the past, but also blossoms in new directions.

After 20 years of dedicated spiritual study and practice, Miranda was graced by a powerful awakening in the same cave in Arunachala, India, that Hindu sage Ramana Maharshi once called home. Her concepts of self, God and world gave way to a deep silence.

She then underwent a great unravelling of her familiar ego identity that initiated powerful changes in all aspects of her life. It took her years to stabilize this awakening, integrate its wisdom, and learn how to guide others to live daily life from this deeper ground.

Since then, Miranda has emerged as a truly global spiritual teacher. She speaks with the refreshing candor born of her Australian roots. She draws from her deep study of world religions and practices as an interfaith minister. And she’s well-versed in many modern systems of psycho-spiritual growth.

Miranda’s teaching methods marry an exquisite and piercing capacity for clear insight with an overflowing, loving heart that will help you release your aversion to any aspect of yourself.

She’ll guide you in shedding the conditioning that obscures the truth of who you really are, and help you approach the path with tenderness and self-forgiveness.

In Living From God Consciousness, she’ll offer you a distinctly feminine perspective on non-dual spiritual realization that leads to the discovery of new dimensions of grace — and the possibility for you to embody divine love and live with a deeper awareness of and appreciation for the beauty and mystery of life.

We at The Shift Network first learned about Miranda from veterans of the spiritual path who have sat with literally every major teacher of the last 30 years. They told us, “You HAVE to meet Miranda. She’s the real deal.”

And we found ourselves dazzled by the luminosity and loving realization of this teacher.

Miranda’s teachings are informed by her extensive experience in educating and training others from all over the globe. Her decades of teaching include 10 years as spiritual director of a groundbreaking program in which she trained over 600 interfaith ministers and spiritual counselors.

In recent years, she’s been guiding groups of advanced aspirants who are ready to let go of the paradigm of “seeking, grasping and struggling,” and experience the loving presence of the Divine as the baseline for every aspect of their lives — from relationships to careers to running errands.

During these eight weeks with Miranda, you’ll learn to relax the efforting — the pushing, pulling and leading with the ordinary mind — and explore why so many of your attempts to improve, grow and evolve leave you feeling like you’re running in place.

You’ll be guided through the common pitfalls on a spiritual path and discover how to manage and integrate your instinctual drives.

She’ll share how to unconditionally accept and embrace all elements of yourself as aspects of the Divine and bring forth a deep and abiding sense of wholeness and wellbeing.

You’ll learn how to counteract your ego’s tendency to resist and reject any movement toward God Consciousness.

She’ll gently guide you to advance beyond an intellectual concept of awakening to experience a living, pulsating awareness that permeates every aspect of your body and being.

You’ll then learn how to apply this realization to daily life to become a more conscious and spiritually mature human being. You’ll even begin to view every challenge in life as a blessing in disguise.

If you yearn to discover how heaven can meet earth in the core of your own being, this program was designed for you!

With Miranda as your guide, you’ll discover:

The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me. One seeing. One knowing. One love.
– Meister Eckhart

Greater Connection Through Video

As a special aspect of this course, Miranda’s sessions will be offered via pre-recorded video to allow for more intimacy and greater communication of the teachings. Each video broadcast will be followed by a LIVE Q&A session with Miranda via streaming video for an even more intimate connection and direct guidance. The video broadcast will be easy to access and significantly aid your transformation.

What You’ll Discover in These 8 Weeks

Course sessions are on Wednesdays at Noon Pacific.

In this 8-week transformational training, Miranda will offer you an opportunity to integrate love and unity into your life through the non-dual state of unconditional allowing. You’ll more deeply understand the nature of the mind of God, open beyond your mental boundaries, and enter into deeper unity consciousness.

Each weekly LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to move into unity with God Consciousness.

This program is divided into three sections, each with a specific emphasis:

“Opening to God Consciousness.” Modules 1 and 2 give an overview of the integrated approach to non-duality, the vision of unity, the practice of unconditional acceptance, and its relevance to our personal deepening and collective awakening.

“Embracing the Forces of Our Humanity.” Modules 3 to 5 dive into substantial shadow work, powerfully challenging the aspects normally suppressed deep in the unconscious, and bringing everything to the heart-cave of Absolute Grace.

“In the World But Not Of the World.” Modules 6 to 8 lead beyond the ordinary veils to experience the Boundless dimensions. Opening up space within provides expanded perception and brings deep peace with wise discrimination, so God Consciousness can be embodied while taking graceful action in this world.

LIVE Integration & Deepening Sessions With Miranda

In addition to the 8 teaching modules, Miranda will join you for 3 special LIVE bonus sessions via streaming video where she’ll welcome your questions and concerns, inviting you to dive deeper in and through your direct experience of the course material. In these sessions, Miranda will present a review of the material covered in the course sessions followed by a full hour of addressing everyone’s questions.

SECTION 1:
OPENING TO GOD CONSCIOUSNESS

Module 1: The Indestructible Unity of Being
(November 9)

We begin our 8-week journey together by exploring what God Consciousness IS. How do we open beyond mere conceptual understanding of our underlying unity to experiencing it directly? How can abiding in the non-dual condition help us integrate our personal and collective shadow? How does this help us find the peace and wisdom to live authentic spiritual lives and be of benefit to our world?

At the core of absolutely everything is God... a love so total that it embraces everything, including your ego and its distortions, while beckoning you to come home. Tuning into this love and unity provides a powerful inner platform from which to grapple with our deepest challenges — both personal and collective — with spiritual maturity. It asks that we surrender our fixed perceptions, open into the mystery, and humbly let all the blessings and challenges of life spark our growth.

Miranda will introduce her feminine, integrated approach to non-duality that embraces both transcendent purity and our relative humanity as part of the same whole.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover how ego relaxation stops the war against yourself, prevents bypassing, and supports a settling into your true nature
  • Receive the transmission that invites you to experience your underlying unity — an individual but inseparable “window pane” of God
  • Recognize your limitations and how to bring more precision and potency to your practice
  • Embrace your challenges as gateways into deeper wisdom through the practice of holistic inquiry
  • Expand your capacity to open, soften and allow rather than contract and close
  • Melt your projections, defenses and tantrums against love

Module 2: Unconditional Acceptance
The Heart of Non-dual Practice (November 16)

Living from God Consciousness calls us to the practice of unconditional acceptance — of both the transcendent ground of our being that is always pure, always free and unchanged, and the relative dimension of our personhood. This means accepting that we’re all simultaneously inherently perfect and works in progress. Unconditional acceptance helps us anchor in our unity, while excavating the places where we might be caught in patterns that create suffering for ourselves and others.

Acceptance helps us walk an integrated path that is simultaneously one of Being and Becoming. This protects us from subtly hiding out in spiritual positions to avoid meeting that which we do not fully understand. Acceptance helps us open into the paradox of our divinity and humanity so we can live it as one integrated stream. Through acceptance, Grace can transform our emotional reactivity, drawing us to ever deepening wisdom. At peace within, we can respond to our personal and collective challenges; and our actions can birth more unity rather than further division.

In this module, you’ll open to:

  • Accepting even the difficult things as part of God (without bypassing or conceptualizing) and being grown by the forces of your life
  • Understanding the difference between acceptance that opens us and resignation that subtly closes us down
  • Finding peace with the paradoxes, clarity to discriminate the different levels of reality, and wisdom to act appropriately
  • Embracing the presence of acceptance as a dimension of Grace
  • Welcoming the all-embracing space of loving awareness that invites everything to come home to integration, including your ego

SECTION 2:
EMBRACING THE FORCES OF OUR HUMANITY

Module 3: Integrating the Splitting Defense (November 23)

The greatest challenge in embracing everything as part of the Divine is the instinct to judge “this is good” and “this is bad.” Judgment is the instrument of separation, dividing our consciousness into many separate parts, disturbing our peace, distorting our relationships, and leaving us feeling fragmented. This primary activity of our ego drives so much of our automatic thinking processes. Yet every time we identify with a judgment, automatically assume its reality, and act on it, we enact separation from our own true nature, from all beings, and from the Absolute. It is literally how we recreate duality moment to moment.

Miranda will explain the “splitting” defense that’s a driving force of the unconscious mind. We’ll see how the instinct to split off “the bad” to protect “the good” begins in infancy and develops into thick layers of division in our minds, and how splitting is powered by rejection, initiating a cycle of grasping and rejecting that keeps us bound. You’ll discover how you enact unnecessary separation, what you might be demonizing in the name of spirituality, and how to use objective discrimination while opening your heart to yourself, others and the world.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand the nature of ego judgment, and how it shields the mind from objective clarity
  • Discover what you tend to reject the most and why — and how to unlock the life force energy within this rejection so it can be harnessed for awakening
  • Intercept the cycle of rejection, grasping and checking out that keeps you from being at peace with yourself, others and life
  • Overcome your fears of opening your heart to whatever you had demonized as “bad”
  • Become a deeper embodiment of true compassion in the world

LIVE Integration & Deepening Session #1 (November 30)

Module 4: Harmonizing Our Survival, Sexual & Social Instincts (December 7)

Living from God Consciousness asks that we bring all parts of ourselves to the light of awareness. By hiding nothing we become transparent to the transforming power of grace. So many spiritual giants of all traditions have stumbled painfully with distortions relating to money, sexuality and power.

Deep spiritual practice often flushes up to the surface more primitive ego structures. Human beings all have three primary instincts — the drive to survive, the drive for pleasure, and the drive to belong to a tribe. Since these drives are so powerful, they’ve often been viewed as troublesome forces that pull us away from the spiritual life. Hence, many traditions have counseled celibacy, repression or renunciation from the world. This forced attempt at transcendence has at times encouraged a split, often feeding a painful sense of shame about our undeniable human drives. Repressing these forces as well as yielding to them indiscriminately has led to great suffering for individuals and whole communities.

Miranda will present an integrated approach to working constructively with your raw humanity, so that you navigate the classical blind spots of the spiritual path with wisdom.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand the three primary forces of your humanity and their impact on your awakening process
  • Examine how these instincts manifest in their purity, and how to recognize if you’re caught in their grip and being led away from truth
  • Inquire into the places you get lost, and compassionately forgive the ego forces obscuring your vision
  • Experience your instinctive drives coming into balance and harmonizing with your cherished spiritual intentions
  • Recover your sense of wholeness as a divine human

Module 5: Forgiveness
Welcoming Everything Home to the Heart-cave (December 21)

Our journey thus far into God Consciousness has brought us into greater intimacy with our own shadow, and a deeper understanding of the shadow elements we meet in one another and in our world. Without dismissing our relative human difficulties, we lay all we’ve encountered on the altar of true forgiveness. In humility and prayerful willingness, we offer up any remaining hardness, rejection, hatred, anger, hurt, betrayal or shame to the deepest chamber of the heart. We let Grace lead us into the pure realms beyond human emotion, beyond right and wrongdoing. There we rest in the mystery of the heart-cave, whereby Grace can come home.

We’ll open through the fears that such depth of forgiveness can evoke, honoring our humanity while compassionately walking together into the light of our indestructible innocence, our unchanging unity as divine beings. We offer the vision of absolute love to everyone, and to the most hidden parts of ourselves, allowing miracles to resolve all grievances.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover how true forgiveness dissolves the lens of guilt, hatred and projection, dissolving the inner violence that distorts your vision and wreaks havoc in our world
  • Forgive your taboo emotions such as hatred, anger and envy, and lovingly contact the spiritual poverty underneath them
  • Journey through the six stages of forgiveness, both as principles to support your release and as a practice of spiritual transformation
  • Let the presence of true forgiveness restore you to inner peace, whole-heartedness and right relationship to one another
  • Contact the heart-cave Ramana Maharshi spoke of as our true home, our unified Reality that shines undisturbed underneath the emotional heart
  • Rise above the impossible sufferings of the world to come home into the heart-cave and into the transforming grace of divine love

LIVE Integration & Deepening Session #2 (December 28)

SECTION 3:
IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF THE WORLD

Module 6: Beyond Your Mental Boundaries
Entering Unity (January 11)

The path of awakening invites us out of limiting patterns, fears and hurts to greater healing and wholeness while also inviting us into boundless love, awareness and unity. Waking up out of the trance of our separate “me story” helps us realize not only that God exists but that divinity is our very nature.

Yet often we experience reality through the filter of numerous boundaries, patterned by our history, our ancestral lineages, culture and possibly impressions from other lifetimes. On the ordinary human level, boundaries can support healthy interpersonal relating as well as clarity with time and commitments, yet when it comes to entering into deeper dimensions of unity, these same boundaries can become impenetrable barriers.

On the other hand, affirming “I am That” can nurture a dangerous arrogance. Authentic entrance into the non-dual state asks that we surrender our spiritual ambition. By Grace we can start to experience that everything we behold is our self. Our vision is unified, and our countenance is love. We taste sweet humility, freedom and reverence for all beings, which makes us naturally love and serve one another as our very self.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Bring to light the subtle mental boundaries acting as unnecessary glass ceilings on your experience of self and reality
  • Recognize where you are in the dimensions of awakening to the Divine, with the Divine and as the Divine
  • Understand the distinction between healthy boundaries and the wise application of Boundless experience
  • Discriminate between subtle bypassing and authentic expansion of consciousness
  • Enter more deeply into the non-dual condition of unity, letting the direct experience be your teacher

Module 7: Cultivating Equanimity
Revealing Your Magnificence (January 18)

Authentic non-duality helps us understand that our relative human experience and the absolute transcendent dimensions of our being are not two separate things, but a continuum. Equanimity is the virtue that helps us embody this truth as a lived reality. It helps us meet both the content of our experiences — our changing emotions, thoughts, relationships, phases of life — and the boundless space in which all content is happening. Inquiring into both dimensions helps us to meet the full spectrum of life’s ups and downs while not getting lost in the drama.

The primary block to equanimity is our subtle attachments and fixed positions, especially our spiritual ones. Seeing and smiling at these empowers us to advance spiritually, letting the guru of life enlighten us into ever deepening wisdom. Equanimity brings us the possibility of peace independent of the circumstances of our lives. This perspective helps us take a deeper seat in our practice, bringing maturity, grace and perspective into our functioning.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Meet the full spectrum of your experience — both its content and the witnessing awareness of the content
  • Liberate your blocks to equanimity: your fixed positions, assumptions, filters and the meanings you give to your experiences
  • Discover how grounding yourself in the unchanging I AM presence gives you greater perspective and peace within the inevitable ups and downs
  • Cultivate the virtue of equanimity itself by elevating your awareness of supportive practices, the traps to be mindful of, and how to rise every time you fall
  • Become “kindhearted as a grandmother, dignified as a king” (Lao Tzu)

Module 8: Navigating the World With Love & Wisdom
Revealing Your Magnificence (January 25)

Together we’ve taken a deep dive into the underlying ground of unity that’s the fundamental nature of everything and everyone, and faced things within ourselves that many spend lifetimes avoiding. Your willingness to explore both your transcendent depths and your most raw human places naturally begins to birth not only personal transformation but also a deeper understanding of the human condition itself. This is such a gift to our world.

Authentic awakening helps us experience our interconnectedness with all other beings and our planet. It seeks to translate fully into the way we speak, think and act, respond kindly to suffering where we find it, and stay grounded in our practice so we can walk wisely through our daily lives.

We’ll explore such questions as, What causes divine action? How do we live in the world but from a consciousness not of it? Miranda will share a simple practice of asking-listening: discriminating and then being obedient to our inner knowing amidst daily life.

In this module, you’ll

  • Begin to take a deeper seat in your ongoing practice of inquiry, meditation and devotion
  • Find out how you can embody the gifts from this journey together going forward in your life
  • Be given guidelines for inspired action, so you’ll know how to tune into the silence, enter into a receptive state, then ask and listen
  • Understand how to discriminate inner guidance from subtle delusion by employing a simple checklist
  • Discover how to practice God Consciousness in your daily interactions, enabling you to see through the appearances and the personality to the unified ground of Being — and how this helps call forward the highest in others as well as in yourself
  • Find out what to do when you get caught up in an ego knot or derailed by the unexpected

Whatever Seems to Be in the Way, IS the Way
Audio Dialogue With Miranda Macpherson and Mirabai Starr

Miranda and Mirabai, two feminine mystics from interfaith backgrounds dialogue together about how to embrace everything, including difficult issues such as loss, heartbreak, sickness and the unexpected, as gateways into direct mystical experience. They discuss how opening our heart to both the beauty and the horror of the mystery can birth in us a deeper humanity and more embodied wisdom, enabling our whole world to thrive.

Mirabai Starr is a critically acclaimed author and translator of sacred literature. She teaches and speaks widely on contemplative practice, interspiritual experience, and the transformational power of loss. Her works include Dark Night of the Soul by John of the Cross; The Interior Castle; The Book of My Life by Teresa of Avila and many more. Her book, God of Love: A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, winner of the New Mexico/Arizona Book Award, positions her at the forefront of the emerging Interspiritual Movement.

Tara Mantra
Audio Mantra From Miranda Macpherson

Om Tare Tutare Ture So Ha

Tara is the awakened feminine Bodhisattva of compassion. According to Tibetan buddhist mythology, Tara manifested from the tears the Buddha shed upon seeing the suffering of this world. Tara’s activity brings many kinds of blessings, from bringing support to peace and long life to bringing love, compassion and wisdom into our midst. However, her specific mission is liberating human beings from fear and the causes of fear.

As you chant this mantra, visualize the Tara presence showering rays of light down over you and over all beings, and let the grace of this manta work deeply upon your body, mind and heart.

What Graduates of Living From God Consciousness Are Saying...

I feel a deep resonance with the loving wisdom of Miranda’s teachings and a yearning to arrive at a more direct experience... Thank you for helping me to remember who I really am and helping me to get the small self out of the way... May I use this teaching to be of more service for the benefit of all sentient beings.
— John D., Birmingham, United Kingdom

The course with Miranda was very special for me, the best so far of online seminars. Each of the modules gave me an important insight into my own inner journey... I am very impressed by the love and kindness Miranda radiates; she has real integrity, wisdom, and at the same time she is so humble and honest about her own ongoing discovery and learning.
— Sophia

I was in Indonesia for the duration of this course and due to time differences could not listen live. I thought this might impact the benefits I could potentially derive from this course, but it did not at all. I enjoyed every minute of it. I so need to hear again and again the insights Miranda offers so I can meditate on them and the enquiry questions throughout my days during the course but more importantly beyond the course. The recordings act as gentle reminders to relax and dive ever deeper and beyond.
— John, Bali, Indonesia

I love Miranda’s feminine way of being and her honest sharing from her experience. The inquiry process she uses has opened up so much in me. I turn back to the inquiry questions to help me explore my experience in a deeper way all the time. I have come to be open and surrender so much more to my life. Thank you, Miranda, for being such a wonderful teacher.
— Sue, Dallas, Texas

There are so few teachers these days that are authentic living embodiments of conscious awareness. Miranda is certainly such a being, and to have the opportunity to connect with her in this way was sublime. I felt like I was leaning in with wide-eyed attention as she delivered the most profound teachings through her calm, radiant presence. What deep gifts Miranda offers — she inspires deep recognition of the Truth and gives the perfect guidance on how to let it blossom in all aspects of our lives.
— Laura Shaw, British Columbia, Canada

Miranda embodies what she teaches! Her feminine approach to non-dual teachings facilitates a complete acceptance of what is, regardless of whether it fits our “image” of being spiritual, etc..., which, in turn, opens up the space for us to directly experience our true nature! She is a masterful teacher and facilitator who doesn’t hold herself above her students. She genuinely cares and simply wants her students to live from the reality of who they are! What a delight to study with her.
— Ron, Boulder, Colorado

I have been doing this work intensely for 5 years now and had a lot of trouble going deeper than the mental layer. Compassion finally rooted in and while I don’t want to stop there it has become integrated with my completion processes. I think the benefit is working live with Miranda, an awakened being who has had all the experiences and can speak to any issues. [Thanks to] her energy transmissions where shifts happen, and using community support, this work continues in us after the course stops.
Nancy O’Carroll, Ontario, California

I have benefited hugely from this course. It has expanded my sense of who I am and enabled me to feel held in a wider presence than I was aware of before. I am also moved and inspired by the depth of openness and experience that others brought to this sharing.
— Susan, United Kingdom

This course has helped me to feel more connected to God’ s love and to start practicing true acceptance and surrender.
— Maria Cordon, Guatemala

Miranda was very skilled at holding space, and creating course content. Her self inquiry was masterfully created.

Obsolete defense mechanisms dissolved and I came to once again embrace my true evolutionary edge with courage, dignity and peace.

Miranda is a rare teacher in that she is able to facilitate direct realization in others that many teachers can only speak of. Her work carries forward the direct invitation I have offered for many years that ushers us into deep contact with God-within. She is a luminous being and a gifted teacher.
— Eileen Caddy, Founder of the Findhorn Foundation

Miranda Macpherson is the embodiment of wisdom and compassion. I continue to learn from her depth and to be touched by the expansiveness of her love. She integrates a rigorous clear-seeing mind, the beauty of art, and the wisdom of reflection and years of clinical application, making her teachings potent and transformational. She invites a new way of seeing and living, recognizing the non-dual nature of reality as well as working with people exactly where they are and honoring the sacredness of each moment and each experience. This work has the power to transform our individual and collective lives. I give Miranda Macpherson my highest recommendation.
— Shauna L. Shapiro, PhD Professor, Santa Clara University, Author of The Art and Science of Mindfulness

Miranda works with a blend of penetrating insight, profound intuition, expertise in spiritual tradition and psychology, a deep grounding in somatic awareness, and an almost angelic transmission of pure, radiant, soul-stirring LOVE. Working with her, and being led lovingly and masterfully back to direct experience of the divinity within me, has been a literal Godsend. I feel blessed, deeply, by her guidance and presence.

About Miranda Macpherson

Miranda Macpherson is a contemporary spiritual teacher, counselor and author of the spiritual guidebook, Boundless Love. Miranda, who has been teaching internationally since 1995, is known for her depth of presence, clarity and refined capacity to guide people into direct experience of the sacred.

Miranda’s work is a synthesis of self-inquiry, spiritual psychology, devotion and meditation practice offered with feminine grace that embraces our everyday human experience as a gateway into the depths of our true nature. Through a blend of silent transmission and articulate teaching, she leads ongoing programs oriented to guiding people into direct spiritual experience while providing a practical map for actualizing our realization into daily life. Drawing from the ancient lineages of Advaita and mystical Christianity, as well as from more recent wisdom teachings such as A Course In Miracles, Miranda leads from the ground of unconditional love and compassion for our humanity, emphasizing receptivity, discrimination and surrender.

Miranda is founder of the groundbreaking “OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation” in London, and today leads the “Awakening Love and Wisdom” sangha in Marin and Sonoma counties in northern California. She teaches retreats in the United States and in Europe, and is working on a new book, Tasting Grace. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Bob Duchmann, a teacher of the Diamond Approach (A.H. Almaas’ Ridhwan School).

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.

Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers. You can also use Skype to connect to MaestroConference at no charge, and we offer a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
