The Members Circle
Deep Dialog Sessions
Dec. 10th, 2021
Two years ago when I offered a Meditation and Awakening Teacher Training, I'd always planned to offer a second training for those who wanted to facilitate paradigm shifts and develop their unique expression of new possiblities.
This is that training.
This training will take place over 14-months starting with a 7-day retreat during the last week of September and will be open to only 16 participants.
The work you engage with in this training will be focused on three essential elements.
- Spiritual Freedom: Liberating yourself from conditioned habits of perception.
- Paradigm Shifting: Becoming adept at changing your experience of reality.
- The Artistry of Possibility: Developing the full expression of your highest potential.
The work you do over 14 months will include focused and intense spiritual practice, collective deep dialog inquiry, extended periods of time on retreat, and a commitment to transforming your life to reflect your highest potentials.
- To generate and maintain a profound depth of access to the universal source of conscious awareness, eternal wisdom and divine love.
- To creatively explore your deepest assumptions abour the nature of reality so that you can consciously shift our awareness into new forms of reality.
- To discover and develop your own unique expression of the infinite mysteries that exist beyond the veil of our ordinary perceptions.
- To create and produce your own body of work in the form of teachings, works of art, writings, entrepreneurial ventures, or any other way that the new paradigm can be expressed.
If you want to devote yourself to expressing new paradigm possibilities in the world, this training was created for you.
An Artist of Possibility is someone devoted to bringing new paradigm possibilities to life in the world.
- 3 x 7-day retreats with Jeff Carreira
- 12 x daylong virtual retreats with Jeff Carreira
- 12 x 2-hour deep dialog sessions with Jeff Carreira
- 12 x 90-minute peer group discussions (participants only)
- A commitment to daily practice and study.
- A commitment to making changes in your life that will support your highest potential.
If these details excite you, please consider joining me in this new adventure.
The foundational work of this program will be the ongoing and ever-deepening liberation of your consciousness.
This training is an opportunity to engage with Jeff Carreira in profound and sustained spiritual work. In it you will be asked to commit to radically increasing your own capacity to surrender to, and live from, the source of life.
Over the course of 14-months, you will establish yourself in a truly spiritual life in the most profound ways. You will discover your own access to Source and make changes that put that Source at the very center of your life.
You will learn how to release the mental habits that keep you from realizing the full potential of your being, and listen deeply for the call of divinity, trusting even the subtlest guidance you receive.
This training is about establishing yourself in a deeply liberated state of mind and living spontaneously from the most creative currents of life.
As we liberate ourselves from conditioned mental habits, we realize that how we experience reality can change much more dramatically than we might ever have imagined.
In this training, you will learn how to use profound forms of inquiry to move your awareness into a new world of experience - and you will discover that this is more than just the old world experienced differently - it is a new world altogether!
When we start to see how different things can be, we often feel overwhelmed. In this training you will learn how to embrace your immense transformative potential.
As you liberate your awareness and become comfortable with the experience of the unknown, you will enter realms of higher dimensionality, and new worlds of possiblity will open up to you.
You will see that so much of what we are taught to assume is unquestionably real, is not. You will also learn how shifting your awareness into new possibilities and acclimating to new perceptions rewires you and makes those realities stable in your system.
Above and beyond everything else, this training is designed to initiate a new life for you - the life of an Artist of Possiblity.
An Artist of Possiblity is someone whose life is an expression of new paradigm possiblities.
Through this training, you will discover the new possilities that you are here to express and you will find your unique way of expressing them.
If you feel drawn to this work, it's probably because you've known for a long time that you were here to share something extraordinary.
Your expression could simply be a lifestyle built on new possibilities, or it could involve the creation of your own body of work, authoring books, writing poetry, creating art, or establishing an entrepreneurial venture.
The success of this training will come as you discover what you are here to share, develop your unique way of sharing it, and establish the platform you need to share it from.
I've spent my life teaching, writing, creating online courses and leading retreats. I'm very familiar with how to produce vehicles for communicating to the world and all of my experience will be available to support you in becoming an Artist of Possiblity.
Do you want to want to express new possibilities in the world?
Are you ready to live a life that reflects your highest potential?
If yes, this program is for you.

There are so many sources that we will draw from in this training that we couldn’t possibly read all the books I’m recommending. Instead, we will each choose books to read and present them to the group. This will maximize the learning for everyone.
