Drawing on years of study and practice, John Van Auken carefully and thoughtfully outlines Eastern and Western techniques, along with Edgar Cayce’s techniques, for achieving a deep, meaningful meditation. You will be led by this expert into a semi-hypnotic state from which you can let go enough to awaken to your individuality, soul, and higher mind, then move into contact with the Infinite Consciousness. Both fundamental and advanced concepts will be presented and then guided practice sessions using proven techniques will follow. The sessions include kundalini meditation and passage-in-consciousness meditation. The passage-in-consciousness method is designed to achieve direct contact with what Cayce calls the “Universal Consciousness,” the infinite mind and spirit of God.
John has taught these techniques for years and finds that even beginners can have significant experiences with the Universal Consciousness. If there is one prerequisite for participating in his workshop, it is a desire to experience direct contact with the mind and spirit of the Infinite Universal Consciousness. Edgar Cayce taught some of these methods to only a few people. He used two maps of consciousness and very specific steps and markers along the way. It is a journey through dimensions of consciousness, ultimately leading to contact with the Universal Consciousness. Whatever your religious or nonreligious views, these methods can help you experience God directly.
The workshop includes breathing exercises, chanting prayers (spiritual, not religious), and journaling. There will be time for questions and sharing.
Two of the side benefits of practicing these techniques experienced by many participants are a rejuvenation and revitalization of the physical body and a calming and centering of the mind. Therefore, healing and guidance may also be achieved during the sessions.
