THE ‘STILLNESS’ UNDERLYING ALL FORM

We will begin this week’s session with exercises that will enable us to slow down and take a peek at the underlying stillness within all form.  If we are able to simply rest our awareness as we are in movement with the body – we can get a sense of this beautiful presence – which is the core of our inner being and true self.  We are then not caught up in the busyness of the mind.  We begin to relax and embrace the flow of life moving through us – which, at its core is not really movement, but stillness.  We might notice the energy and sensation – this energy that is the medium of life – that through which life itself flows.

After practicing these exercises, we will then move into a Relaxing and Letting Go meditation – where we will further move through the body with focus and concentration – yet surrender, flow and ease.

HARMONY IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

The modern world that we see around us is nothing more than a mental construct created out of billions and billions of words.  Thought forms.  We live in a world of concepts and ideas of the MIND.  There is not a day that goes by in which we are not fully aware of all of the thoughts that we have moving through our MIND.  But, is it really our mind?  Or, is it the mind of those who have traveled before us – over thousands and thousands of years?  These thoughts that keep repeating themselves.  We might call this mind –  the ancient mind – the ONE mind.  It is the same for everyone in which it sees everything as separate and opposed to each other.

As we move through our meditative practice and explore qualities of expansion and lightness – we notice how harmony naturally arises from letting go of the mind.  We begin to become aware of the nature of awareness. It is self-supporting where no two elements are in conflict – where no one element is dominating another.  Where there is no separateness.   The very nature of awareness is harmony.  As we allow our consciousness to drop into this harmony – the sensation of that harmony translates into the experience of contentment.  As this experience of contentment deepens and matures – we can begin to sense the stability of its presence – from the very fabric of awareness into the fabric of being.

“FREE YOUR VOICE”

Mick and Tess Pulver have been leading personal / spiritual growth programs using music and singing for 23 years around the country.  They will bring their talents to the group and lead us in Voice/Body exercises to free the voice, body and spirit.

Our voice opens up unexpected pathways to the deepest resources of our soul.  Fully expressed singing is a transformational doorway—whether we can carry a tune or not.  It also allows us to release pain and traumas from our past.  It can be a surprising catalyst for cleansing and healing—and ultimately free our aliveness and joy.

Included will be inspiring exercises:   sound healing, soulful group singing, meditation, dynamic movement, and unique voice body processes to awaken your self-expression and ultimately “free your voice.”

This presentation will open your heart, energize you and connect you to your inner brilliance!

BACH FLOWER REMEDIES With TERESA DESILETS
The holistic approach to health, disease and healing is based on the concept of the perfect unity of all things, and the utter uniqueness of every system contained within it.  Each of us is on a unique and unrepeatable journey through life, and our state of health at any time serves as an indicator of the point we have reached on this journey.  Every symptom of body, mind or spirit gives us a particular message, and we need to perceive and acknowledge these messages, and make use of them for our journey.   Every true healing process is an affirmation of our wholeness.
 
Bach Flower Remedies, discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the early 1930’s, is a system from this point of view which may be described as ‘healing by restoring harmony in awareness.’  Heal thyself is at the very heart of Edward Bach’s philosophy.
