This course is for those who are devoted to find true peace within. A peace that is always there but mostly overlooked. We tend to give so much attention to thought-activity that we miss the peaceful "I Am" pure state of Being. That serene felt sense which is prior to thought and emotion.
We have learned to identify with our name, our gender, our cultural habits, ideas and beliefs, but have forgotten that which is before all of this, out of which all of these ideas arise; is the I Am sense. From the 'I Am' you can observe all the identifications, all that which comes after 'I am'; .. a man, a woman, successful or not successful, not good enough, not worthy of love, spiritual or not spiritual, etc. All the identifications are limitations, instable, and thought-based. The sense of Presence is stable and complete.
This course is meant to support those who would like to have a daily meditation practice. To find the "I Am" ground of being is one thing but to break the habit of ongoing identifying with mind and body asks for some daily devotion and support. To gradually stabilize in the feeling "I Am" and eventually to go beyond this sense too.
The "I Am" presence is like a door that opens one way to the world of names and forms (''I am this/ that'') and opens the other way to the formless Silence within; the Self. It is the subtle felt sense of existing before you create any idea about yourself, it is Here. It is a place of Completeness, Oneness, and True Rest.
Eventually this vibration of Being is also witnessed by That which is even prior to I am. Than the Self recognizes Itself.
Besides the weekly gatherings you will be encouraged to practice resting in Being as much as you can during these 6 weeks. You will be given simple tools and techniques to remember and abide in the source of silence within. Not only during your daily sittings but also when waiting in line for your groceries, talking to your boss or your partner, being with your child, drinking a tea, walking or driving your car or working on your laptop. Meditation becomes not a doing but your natural state of being that will uplift, harmonize and simplify every aspect of your life.
What and How:
Once a week for 6 weeks
Intimate group (max 12)
Meditation as a stabilisation in your life
Meditation and Self Inquiry Tools, not only for on your cushion but for daily life
" I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life. I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness. I am the Now. I Am." ~ Eckhart Tolle
