How is Spiritual exploration different from religion? This is a good question and, the answer may surprise you.
What Makes Spiritual Exploration Different
Spiritual exploration is the use of processes to develop awareness. It’s all about methods for exploring and developing the mind. Whereas, religion is about belief in myth and doctrine.
The processes we use come from many ancient cultures. These methods represent eons of practical research. What’s more, we can verify these methods with science. They are repeatable and provide measurable data such as reducing heart rate and increasing brainwave coherence. Many provide measurable health benefits, like reducing stress and the effects of PTSD for instance.
Think of these processes like following a recipe, like baking a cake. If you combine the right ingredients in the right order, the result is something delicious. All you need to do is to follow the recipe. You do not need to follow any religion to use them.
What are Spiritual Technologies?
There are many ways to list these processes. We like this simplified method. Some of these technologies could be in more than one category:
- First, the study of logical reasoning. This includes deductive and inductive reasoning along with companion tools, spotting logical fallacies and logical axioms. These tools sharpen your ability to discern fact from fiction.
- Another important tool is The Enneagram Personality Profile. This tool enables us to understand the mechanisms of Ego, personality, and instincts. It’s also an important doorway to understanding the virtues and gifts of the spirit.
- Progressions of seated meditation. This includes a range from Basic Mindfulness Centering exercises through Japa Meditation and the Siddhis of Patanjali.
- Next, progressions of moving meditation. For instance, this progression includes several methods of energy collection, like Forest Bathing, Qigong, and Tai Chi, Tei Ke.
- Awareness and consciousness expansion pathways of Lucid Dreaming and the Shamanic Journey or Guided Meditation.
- And last but not least, several Healing modalities, such as Pejut, Reiki, and Shiatsu.
