How to Realize Endless Bliss?

Is it possible?
Who is destined to realize this?
Can anyone realize this?
Is it worth the effort/practice/commitment?
What do I have to know to achieve this?
Do I even truly want to realize endless bliss?
What's most important in my life, and why?
What illusions am I holding on to that are causing me subtle or gross suffering?
How am I distracting myself unnecessarily from realizing endless bliss?
How can I optimize my life to support my absorption into endless bliss?
What are the benefits of becoming endlessly blissful?
What will my practical life look like when I absorb myself in endless bliss?
How will my relationship to others change?
HOW precisely can I Realize Endless Bliss?

Coming together in community within the tight container of a retreat environment, makes it possible to drop all unnecessary mental activity and distractions, and allows you to naturally 'drop in' to your Natural State (and beyond). In this powerful and peaceful presence that Bentinho, Sedona's land, and the community will hold for you, directing all your consciousness into deepening your Self-Realization becomes surprisingly easy and profound levels may be reached that make you never the same again.

Bentinho will guide you to realize and establish the reliable stability of the "I" within you, that "I" which never moves: the "I Exist" until this intimate knowledge allows you to transcend your identification with the senses, the body, the world, and the me-assumption. Liberation ensues. 

After that you will be guided into a stage where merger with God (The Great I Am, the I Am of All That Is) becomes more and more real to you. You will start to directly experience how 'The World' is actually the same as your I, or I AM. And if you are ready, you may try experimenting with tasting the Perfect One Beyond the I-exist. Taste what's left without Creation in your view. Unending Joy ensues for most people when they actually manage to glimpse what's beyond Consciousness/Creation.

Bentinho says that although a true realization of the Absolute still is a rare occurrence, that even establishing oneself as the formless ground of all experience, will greatly liberate you from suffering as your entire perspective of life will become that it is in fact a dream-creation inside of your I AM. Suddenly you have the universe inside of you.

There will most likely be some verbal teaching and Q&A happening spontaneously, but the majority will be silent. And when not silent, it will still be rooted in a deep and unmovable silence. The intention is to make you FEEL and directly know the depths of Consciousness, God and the Absolute.

Since Bentinho is moving into this new phase of his life where he has let go of practically all attachments to showing up a certain way to meet other people where they are at, the depth and potential silence of his presence and transmission may not be everyone's cup of tea compared to the previous Bentinho, but those who this resonates with will know it without a shadow of a doubt.

He's been taking lots of time to himself for the first time in years, to assist him in deepening his Self Realization, but simultaneously feels a continuing calling to periodically come out into the world and share this newly-allowed stream of unconditional love, peace and unending bliss with you all in the intimate setting of a retreat space. He will do so in Sedona May 1-5, and in July again at the All-Inclusive Netherlands Retreat.
