Spreading the knowledge of the ancient tools for expanding awareness and opening the doors of consciousness.
The forum we provide is based on 30 years of research and practical experience. It mirrors the learning processes found in many ancient traditions. We have not changed the teaching, just blended the learning aspect together so that participants can learn several techniques which complement one another.
Joseph Campbell called this type of spiritual voyage the “Hero’s Journey”.
The blended learning curriculum we facilitate includes theory, instruction, reinforcement, feedback, and teach-back components. This keeps the original integrity of the separate traditions intact and provides the proper background and checks to ensure the learner is ready for the next step in the learning progression. It’s a process that teaches several spiritual technologies in a complementary way that reinforces learning, reducing many of the common issues with learning these tools and results in better learning outcomes. Since the best way to learn a skill is to teach it, everyone is involved in the learning process. We are all students and facilitators. The more we learn the more we can pass along.
The spiritual technologies we provide fall into five categories. The first two are progressions of both seated and moving meditation. The seated meditation includes a range from mindfulness exercises through Japa (which commercially taught as Transcendental Meditation) and the Siddhis of Patanjali. The moving meditation includes a progression from energy collection to energy projection, Qigong through Tai Ka (Tai Chi). The third category of moving meditation naturally flows to the healing modality, which includes Reiki and Pejut (Japanese and Indonesian healing modalities). The fourth category engages the analytical mind through the application of the Enneagram Personality Profile, study, and application of deductive and Inductive Logic. The last modality is sometimes referred to as Creative Visualization, is a study in the Shamanic Journey.
Along with the blended learning curriculum, we provide a number of tools to provide the best learning outcomes. One of these is the use of a simple hand-written journal to keep track not only of the learning curriculum but also to record their personal experience. This is a valuable tool which helps the learner recognize incremental growth or spot trends which can indicate where there may be roadblocks. We study sound and vibration, the use of mantras and sutras, when and why to vocalize and when to use them internally. All of this is blended in a curriculum with theory and practice.
