THE SPIRIT KEEPERS with Nishant Matthews 23 – 26.3.2017

Spirit keepers.  One of them may be you.  Or someone you know, or, maybe one of your children.

These are people who are here to bring light and confidence and assistance to the fundamental changes that are unfolding.  Changes in the earth and her systems.  Changes in the culture and its values.  Changes in the innermost sense of self.  All of these and more are on the move, are giving away old structures so that something fundamentally good and new can unfold.

The Spirit Keepers are able to connect into their own sense of spirit, even when the culture is doing something very different.  They can stand alone on a crowded street, and know which way is their calling. Spirit Keepers are part of a team, part of a family which has long and deep roots into a tradition of spirituality and light.  This soul family may not benefit from the full understanding of their family, their school, the cultural values of the country they are born to.  Even so, Spirit Keepers are available to the living light and guidance from their roots. They allow the strength, wisdom, and love of their team to be a familiar feature of their daily life.

Spirit Keepers training days teaches the kind of trust where you know you are good. That you are connected to other people, both in the body and out, who share a similar soul to you.  And that together, you have something of immense value to offer.  The training gives simple, precise tools for clearing negativity and self-doubt.  It gives you what you need to walk the path of Connection, and living in connection with your Spirit team. The training supports you in in-visioning the brighter future that is calling in these times.

Sex to Superconsciousness – Manipura Chakra 31.3 – 2.4.2017

Sex to Superconsciousness is a tantra journey through 7 chakras. You can join in at any stage of the journey (at any chakra).
Each unique weekend dives deeply into the essence of one chakra, but you can also come for just one workshop. This enlivening process helps us to overcome our conditioning and to evolve on a personal, sexual and spiritual level. Bringing each chakra into balance produces an ecstasy and ease in our life. We feel empowered, awakened and creative.  We invite you to join us in sensorial exploration of dance, meditation, emotional release, massage, group sharing and many other tantric techniques that will support us emotionally and spiritually through this dynamic journey.

Manipura Chakra 3

During the 3rd Chakra weekend, we discover unity of opposites, how to combine our power and our vulnerability. Inner division creates stress, leading to inner and outer war. The third chakra contains the lesson we are learning on a global level right now, how to let go of limiting beliefs and become vast enough to contain contradictions offered by life. As more individuals learn this lesson, the whole human collective will be benefitted.

This chakra digests new information and transforms it into lived experience; life experience becomes wisdom. Out of Balance: Fanaticism, blind belief, following the expectations of others, power trip or inferiority. In Balance: Following your soul calling, wisdom through experience, able to embrace the unity of opposites, and in sexuality, experiences of full body orgasm

Some of the highlights are:
· a powerful transmission of true power in tune with vulnerability
· rituals to promote a balanced third chakra within ourselves and within humanity
· chances to explore and release your inner fire
· gain vitality and self-confidence
· find your own true unique way in life
· discover how to embrace and unite contradictions

PRIMAL GROUP with Premartha and Svarup 5 – 12.4.2017

This Primal group allows you to travel back in time to explore what painful situations in your past still affect the way you live and love today. It also brings you back to the many positive and inspirational moments that you have already lived, alone and with others. When you can recall with all your senses the situations in which you felt loved, seen, heard and supported, these imprints become alive again. They become resources. You will learn how to bring these resources to the past and transform it, and to allow the healing to happen also in your present life. An alchemy will happen. Your system will relax, and a new future will open

The split we carry, between what we feel inside and what we think we should be on the outside, needs healing. Inside us still lives a child, which was born full of natural gifts, overflowing with sensitivity and connectedness with existence and people. In the past, this child has not felt supported in its true nature, and has learnt to renounce its longings. This child is still alive inside us, asking us to be true to ourselves and others. When we welcome this child back into our adult life, a transformation can happen: anger becomes compassion, fear becomes trust.

This deep and intense exploration is moving further back in time, reconnecting with earlier life issues, such as birth, pregnancy and conception. It offers more and different tools to understand and release the most unconscious layers of our personality.

In this group you will be accompanied step by step back in time, through the stages of your development, recovering parts of yourself at each stage. You will experience the rules and roles that have been imposed on you by your surrounding, and how they have molded a false personality around you. You will be supported to express and release old emotions that block the flow of vitality in your body. You will explore your family setup with depth and compassion, completing what has remained unfinished. By healing yourself at the roots, you will have access again to your potential, and you can celebrate the lightness and freedom of being that is regained when the old weight you carried has dissolved.

The course begins at Elontuli -center on Wednesday 5th of April at 17.30 and ends on Wednesday 12th at 17.00. Let us know if you arrive already earlier or if you leave later (Extra: night 35e, breakfast 10e, lunch 14e and dinner 16e). You can find our location (map) by clicking the topic: Contact.

Price and booking

Booking happens by paying the group price (980e) or the first part of it (200e) to Elontuli bank account. It includes food and accommodation. Sheets and towels from us 15e. More info on registration page.

The dynamics inside the group room include regular Tantra meditation sessions, various types of therapeutic exercises, massage, dance, sharing, celebration, emotional release, ritual and energy work. And every day, as part of the training, each couple goes to the privacy of their bedroom for experiential Tantra meditations which include sexual union.

Family Constellation and Trauma Healing with Svagito 1 – 3.7.2017

Svagito Libermeister, very experienced and ultimately skilled therapist in the field of family constellation is coming to Elontuli in July! Family constellation is something we warmly recommend for everyone to try atleast once in their lives. Now one amazing opportunity is available here.

Family Constellation is an effective and powerful method to recognize family entanglements in the family of origin and in the present family. Most often, unexpected solution oriented interventions bring relaxation and understanding into deep human problem situations. This allows love to flow again between the members of the family and to the people who are important to us in our present life.

Working with the energy field of the family we begin to recognize many traumatic experiences. So it is extremely helpful to know how our body responds to trauma and how the body can be supported to overcome the effects of such experiences and discharge the energy that became frozen within the nervous system.

In this course every participant will understand and experience family conditioning and gain insights and learn tools how to support oneself and others in difficult life situations. It is important for laymen and professionals both to know how to stay present without getting overwhelmed and lost in the emotional drama of the past. The life energy, which is frozen in trauma is enormous and it needs a resourceful, safe space to be felt and released.
In this course the latest findings of Family Constellation and new approaches of working with trauma will be included. We will learn how to find our place in life, how to be connected to our family and to our body in a healthy way and to experience ourselves as being part of the vaster movement of life itself.

Svagito is the author of “The Roots of Love, A guide to Family Constellation: Understanding the ties that bind us and the path to freedom”. His second book is “The Zen Way of Counseling: A Meditative Approach to Working with People.” His latest book is called “Osho Therapy” All books are available in many languages.

INTENSIVE LIFE TRAINING with Neeru 10.7. – 16.7.2017

Ready to go ..?? It is time to look at my lifestyle … It is time to expose the continuous lies and ongoing excuses …

It is time for cleaning the “house”. Now or never, finally, it is time for facing the step into the unknown accompanied by fear …

It is time for giving the chance to THIS what I always and again and again was longing for and never was finally facing …

The final Freedom of my soul undisturbed by the tortures of the mind wants to be lived

forever, forever, forever …

SIMPLE, EASY AND JOYFUL

The success of our Intensive Life Trainings for Entering OPEN CLARITY is based on four facts:

  1. MEETING WITH NEERU (daily) which is the center of the cyclone. It is a deep cleaning of all the garbage which hinders us to live this our Life in clarity. Neeru through her continuous presence accompanies the participants in their strong cleaning process during the whole Training.
  1. BODY ACTIVITIES Where we move the body strongly and breath deep in our power center for removing all blocks and traumas which don’t let us live our life in its simplicity, easiness and joyfulness. We train a free flow for finally opening the way into our potential and our divine power.
  1. OPEN SHARING The participants have here the opportunity to share freely without embarrassment or fear about themselves. It is a way of standing “naked” and expose totally naturally. A free flow into CLARITY.
  1. DETOX Other mediums for our success are the

digital detox  through removing all electronic devices during the Training.

physical detox through our strong Body Activities twice a day and the vegan food.

Neeru

“I am at service only

like a didgeridoo,

Truth speaking through me.

in this multidimensional life,

all the joy and all the pain,

coming from there

and there picking up
the people

being able to feel them

and take them by hand …”

Sex to Superconsciousness- Heart Chakra 21-23.7.2017

In every culture it is said that love resides in the heart. Love is the core of our being. We have been born to be loving  and compassionate towards ourselves and others.  When our heart is in balance we are full of love, self-confident and trusting in life.

If our heart is not in balance we feel cold, numb and isolated.

An important teaching of 4th chakra is also how to connect our sex and our heart. It surprisingly common that in our intimate relationships we cannot do that.

We also have our second brain in our heart and it is a source of great wisdom when we learn to listen to our heart .

In Heart chakra weekend we invite you through many different practices, meditations and rituals, one peak experience being the ” Orgasm of heart ”-party where you get to experience through dance and celebration the power of heart centered orgasm!

Sex to Superconsciousness is a tantra journey through 7 chakras. You can join in at any stage of the journey (at any chakra).
Each unique weekend dives deeply into the essence of one chakra, but you can also come for just one workshop. This enlivening process helps us to overcome our conditioning and to evolve on a personal, sexual and spiritual level. Bringing each chakra into balance produces an ecstasy and ease in our life. We feel empowered, awakened and creative.

We invite you to join us in sensorial exploration of dance, meditation, emotional release, massage, group sharing and many other tantric techniques that will support us emotionally and spiritually through this dynamic journey.

Our workshop is open to singles and couples. You can come also with same sex partner.
We do like to have an equal number of males and females to bring about a balance in masculine and feminine energy work.

This training will be in English (and in Finnish if needed.)

During each weekend, we will explore one chakra, taking 7 weekends to complete the whole journey. You are not obliged to attend the chakra weekends in any particular order and you can come for just one workshop, you don’t have to do all 7. The workshop weekends are every 3 months.

– explore the interconnections between personal, communal and environmental issues by diving into the depth of sound.
– learn about active listening the inner and outer environment and practice somatic awareness.
– use the transformative power of inner seeing, witnessing, writing, communication and creative expression as a tool for growth and clarity.
– learn to relate more fully to ourselves, others and the surroundings, and gain greater understanding of who we are today and where we want to go.

INTENSIVE LIFE TRAINING with Neeru 2 – 8.10.2017

Ready to go ..?? It is time to look at my lifestyle … It is time to expose the continuous lies and ongoing excuses …

It is time for cleaning the “house”. Now or never, finally, it is time for facing the step into the unknown accompanied by fear …

It is time for giving the chance to THIS what I always and again and again was longing for and never was finally facing …

The final Freedom of my soul undisturbed by the tortures of the mind wants to be lived

forever, forever, forever …

SIMPLE, EASY AND JOYFUL

The success of our Intensive Life Trainings for Entering OPEN CLARITY is based on four facts:

  1. MEETING WITH NEERU (daily) which is the center of the cyclone. It is a deep cleaning of all the garbage which hinders us to live this our Life in clarity. Neeru through her continuous presence accompanies the participants in their strong cleaning process during the whole Training.
  1. BODY ACTIVITIES Where we move the body strongly and breath deep in our power center for removing all blocks and traumas which don’t let us live our life in its simplicity, easiness and joyfulness. We train a free flow for finally opening the way into our potential and our divine power.
  1. OPEN SHARING The participants have here the opportunity to share freely without embarrassment or fear about themselves. It is a way of standing “naked” and expose totally naturally. A free flow into CLARITY.
  1. DETOX Other mediums for our success are the

digital detox  through removing all electronic devices during the Training.

physical detox through our strong Body Activities twice a day and the vegan food.

Neeru

“I am at service only

like a didgeridoo,

Truth speaking through me.

And having experienced it all

in this multidimensional life,

all the joy and all the pain,

coming from there

and there picking up
the people

being able to feel them

and take them by hand …”

Portals of Presence: Spirit Keepers Tradition part two 12 – 15.10.2017 with Nishant Matthews and team

Spirit Keepers know that there is a world within the world, a place of reality that you can touch and taste and count on in times when the outer world is missing something essential.

We look for portals of presence where we can drop through the world of busyness and should and ought and into the world of cool, still, connected, Presence. Can be from moment of contact with something in nature, a moment when our eyes open and really see. Can also be in times of contact with other people when suddenly the chatter turns into communication and the communication drops into communion. Can come in a glance at a rainbow, or the ancient sun rising fresh and clean for a new day.

In the portals of presence we remember how good the world basically is, and that we have a place in this good world. It is the ground that birthed us, the ground we stand on today. It brings nourishment and courage to our hearts, love into our eyes, clarity to the mind. It has nothing to do with any thing we have to do, or even who we think we are. It is the clear light of Being that is here and now, sharp and present any time we are open to it.

This workshop is to encourage and strengthen your ability to discover and enter through the portals of Presence that appear in your life. We will be working with elements of Tibetan tantra, nature wisdom, and the spirits of the Finland forest, as well as modern tools of self understanding. All of this is to open your eyes and heart to the natural world just under your feet so that you can find that same Presence wherever you are, in the city or forest, alone or with company. Then the magic begins!

Booking happens by paying the group price (480e) or the first part of it (200e) to Elontuli bank account. It includes food and accommodation. Sheets and towel from us 15e. See more from registration page.

Resting and Receiving Life Beyond Ideas

We are happy to offer the fourth Open Dharma deep rest meditation retreat in Finland, with Odelia Weinberg-Peri teaching!

Odelia has been practicing and teaching yogaodelia and meditation for nearly 20 years, among them several fruitful years in India involved with OpenDharma and Jaya Ashmore. A mother to three young children, Odelia feels inspired by intuitive and creative integration of traditional practices with the focusing approach for transformation, healing and heartfulness. Odelia lives in Israel with her partner and their children.

Just as literal rest allows the body and mind to renew themselves, so deep rest also drops us into direct and non-conceptual awareness. This contact with aliveness feeds a natural opening to deep mbear sleeping_350cmykeditation, where old habit-energies are resolved without the intense drama that occurs when we are forcing things. Life beyond ideas leaves room for spacious joy and powerful shifts that make a real difference in our lives, and allows each of us to discover the feel of her or his own unfolding path.

The retreat is held in silence. In addition to instructions, Odelia will give a daily Dharma talk and opportunity for one-to-one meetings. All the teaching will be in English. Participants are encouraged to try lying down for meditation, but sitting is also fine. The retreat also includes walking meditation, work meditation, connected yoga as well as optional meditative singing.

From participants of previous Open Dharma retreats:

“My own practice has been deeply insprired by the Open Dharma teachers and approach. For me this has offered a deep way of opening body, heart and mind; an escape from extensive doing and trying to achieve in meditation; encouragement in finding my own path; and trust in a more intuitive way of guiding my practice and my life, and in letting processes unfold by themselves.”
– Anna Backholm

“When I first heard Jaya’s dharmatalks, she spoke in a language that reached my heart, not my head. I did several retreats with her. And slowly my analytical brain, that wanted to understand, fell asleep. Cause Jaya encouraged us to lie down. Which was new to me. I used to sit straight, analyze, focus, visualize and trying to be clear. Lying down I fell asleep. I was dizzy in my head. I couldn’t get grip on my mind.
         But then, after a few days, when I came up from a deep rest, the world looked differently. The light fell so beautifully through the windows. The trees were glowing. The birds were singing. And under that was a deep silence, that I had never experienced before. The whole world resonated through me. I went to Jaya. Is this real, I asked. Yes, she said, without any doubt.
          When I gave up the control and my wish to understand everything, I found something much deeper. A deep wise love. That wasn’t something that I could achieve or find. But that comes to me when I surrender to life.
           That is what Open Dharma teaches. No method, no goal. Rest. Surrender to life how it is right now. Be available to life.”

Everyone is warmly welcome!

We will learn to recognise in ourselves different levels of our Being; physical, mental, emotional, energetic and astral and we will work in connection with our char system that are constant interaction and are catalyst for change; in a deep process we come to know understand and we start embodiment of our receptive powerful womanhood.

Calling to our ancient mothers of wisdom, our female lineage, we will reconnect to our greatest gifts and the life force that we have inherited from them.
