The Love Serve Remember Foundation is dedicated to preserve and continue the teachings of Neem Karoli Baba and Ram Dass. The foundation facilitates the continuation of these teachings through web casts, Private Heart 2 Hearts with Ram Dass, online courses, e-books, Words of Wisdom, a vast media library, and a social network. In addition, the Love Serve Remember Foundation sponsors retreats led by Ram Dass featuring other esteemed spiritual teachers on Maui.
Spiritual practices are designed to awaken us out of separateness into connection with all things, with Spirit, God, the One. Ram Dass provides us with a range of loving resources and methods that take us out of our separateness into our awareness or oneness. We strive to enter a balance where we are both separate and not separate, a paradoxical reflection of the spiritual path. The cornerstone of Ram Dass’ philosophy and teachings is designed to bring us back to the one behind many.
There is no doubt that throughout our modern lives, thoughts, emotions and sensations will surface constantly and disturb our essential peace. How does one deal with things like anxiety, stress and depression, as they are an inevitable part of our spiritual path? When we are carried away by pleasurable experiences, or avoid unpleasant experiences, we reinforce our ego. Our ego is structured to seek pleasure and avoid pain and so we can use our practice to let go of attachment to our thoughts, emotions and sensations to get free and begin to shift perspective to our soul.
