The key word for the seminar is Surrender.

A Talk from Wisdom's Goldenrod Summer Studies 2013
by Jeff Cox
The primary purpose of practicing meditation is to learn to focus the mind on a specific thought or object so that we can develop the concentration necessary for stabilization of the mind. Once the mind is stable enough, it becomes possible to make a sustained, penetrative inquiry to discover our true nature. With stabilization and sustained inquiry, it becomes more likely that there will be (through the blessed response of grace) a shift of our identity from the personality and body to the Overself—a permanent shift, not merely a life-transforming glimpse!
“’Not to be told; not to be written’: in our writing and telling we are but urging towards it: out of discussion we call to vision: to those desiring to see, we point the path; our teaching is of the road and the traveling; the seeing must be the very act of one that has made this choice.”
Plotinus: On The Good, Or The One, VI-9-4
