Biodynamic Craniosacraltherapist -training

Part 4

14 – 19.1.2020

Biodynamic craniosacral is a holistic and gentle method. It is based n the understanding that the same force and wisdom which has created our perfect bodies organizes, fixes and takes care of our body through our entire lives. Biodynamic craniosacral treatment supports and strenghtens this inner force. It gives support to balance on physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual levels. It helps the system to return into the natural, original state of balance.

The therapist focuses to remain in a state of neturality. The therapist does not act from the outside but rather listens and supports the systems own process of re-organization. This gives the possibility for the body to start using it’s own healing and reparing resources. Biodynamic craniosacral is based on research on the human anatomy, physilogy and modern neurobiology. The people participating get a deep understanding about health and healing processes. They learn that the presence of the therapist is a key factor in the clearing and healing process.

Program

If you want the sertificate to be able to offer the sessions to people the program also includes intependent practise and practising sessions. You can also participate only for the Basic modules and do the training as your own process.

No new participants will be taken in while training period is on.

Osho 21 days silent retreat

27.01 – 18.02.2020 

“As the meditation grows deeper there is only isness. Everything disappears, even ecstasy, because ecstasy too, carries with it, just behind it, the shadow of agony. It is a duality. Blissfulness carries with it, hiding behind it, suffering, misery. It is a duality. Only isness is not a duality because isness is simply synonymous with existence, and there is no non-existence.”
– Osho –

“Celebration is my religion.
Love is my message.
Silence is my truth.”
– Osho –

Retreat is fully booked.

MARCH

Deep rest meditation retreat

with Noon Baldwin

6 – 12.3.2020 

Your heart & my heart are very, very old friends

–Hafiz, Sufi poet

Where is friendship with the Lovely dwelling in us?

On this retreat, we will delve into our inner natural belonging and the befriending jagged edges of non-belonging. Exploring spiritual friendship with ourselves, others, and our surroundings, through Deep Rest resting into this ”lovelyness”, the freedom & empowerment inside it.

In a Deep Rest meditation retreat one is guided to give up trying to be “a good meditator”. Participants are encouraged to try lying down for meditation, but sitting is also fine. The posture can be adjusted freely before and during meditation. In a relaxed posture we are more able to let go of deep contractions of body and mind. Also, as we are not so dominated by our greed to try to get it right or try to be someone, we can find and develop a more authentic relationship with ourselves, the world and others.

With contemplative walking, one-to-one sharings, dhamma talks and some sacred chanting, we can gather ourselves into relaxed stillness and explore the curious fruits of this stillness.

In addition, each practitioner is asked to participate in one hour of working meditation a day, such as vegetable chopping or basic cleaning in the house.

The retreat is held in silence. All the teaching will be in English. The retreat is appropriate for people at all experience levels or with no meditation experience.

Noon Baldwin:

Noon’s influences are varied, with an interest in all spiritualities: retreats and courses with Jaya Ashmore from Open Dharma since 2008, the Buddhist tradition of Ajahn Chah, Tibetan Buddhism, sacred chanting, silent walking & movement. He enjoys how the traditional and open spirituality practices meet as one in his heart. Noon’s varied life experience brings a listening with vibrancy, an alive practice he loves to share.

Noon is an ex circus artist and street performer who retired from the circus in 2004 to dedicate his life to spiritual practice, living in dhamma centers (France & South Africa) and Amaravati monastery (UK). Noon co-created Ekuthuleni rustic retreat place with Sumedha (Hannah) Bagshaw. Ekuthuleni is a back to basics meditation center in the foothills of the french Pyrenees. The emphasis is on meditation and ecological awareness, and bringing these two together.

Connecting with curiosity & energy, with a sense of embodying spiritual practice through in depth body grounding meditations are Noon’s fields of exploration. He is transgendered… a two spirit person all in one.

Price and booking:

The standard cost for the retreat is 320€ (not including possible donations for teacher and managers). We are willing and able to support your practice regardless of your financial status at the moment. This means that it is possible to pay less than the standard cost. If you would like to support someone else with some extra payment, that is also possible and greatly appreciated.

Primal Group with Premartha and Svarup

17 – 24.3.2020

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.

Price and booking

Check the registration instructions at the registration page.

Price for the course is 1050€.
You can also pay the course in two parts, first part is 300€.
Price includes accommodation and food.

 

APRIL

Radical Honesty Gathering

10 – 13.04.2020

Get together of Honesty fans and weirdos!

Honesty Gathering Easter weekend — 10-13 April 2020

Do you really like the way of expressing yourself honestly and openly?
Do you want to make more honest friends?
Have you heard about Radical Honesty from friends or family and are curious to join the weirdos?

We see this Gathering of our tribe as a cross between a retreat and a festival. Various sessions will run concurrently from morning till evening. You can choose which sessions you want to attend. Or you can skip the sessions and just hang out with like-minded people. Or you can organize your session or request the session you want.

The sessions can include various group and paired exercises, hot seat sessions, basics for newcomers, sharing circles, work on shame, sexuality, inner child and other topics arising, Finnish-language session, German-language session, movement, yoga, seated and walking meditation, and / or (if there’s enough interest) a couples session.

Radical Honesty
Radical Honesty is about living in the Here and Now. It is a communication tool and lifestyle, which leads you to connect more deeply with others by expressing our fear, anger, appreciation and whatever is arising in the moment.

Radical Honesty is direct communication that leads to intimacy. It is the difference between making a performance and laughing and playing with friends. Honesty is kind of scary fun that turns out better than you thought it would. Lying is work and a pain in the ass and makes you lonesome as hell.

We claim that lying is the major source of all human stress. It wears us out and eventually kills us. When people engage honestly, energy that was wasted maintaining a performance to make an impression is suddenly available for real creativity in playing together. When we admit our pretenses we can refresh our relationships and powerfully create new ways of living together. That is the not so secret of Radical Honesty.

The Program

The Gathering will begin at 15:00 on 10 April with an opening ceremony and sharing. We will finish the Gathering at 17:00 on 13 April with a closing circle and ceremony.

The morning sessions will include conscious movement / yoga and meditation. Then, for the rest of the day, various sessions will be available for attendees to choose from. The exact timetable will be agreed upon and announced on the spot. The center’s sauna will be available in the evening for an additional fee.

Accommodation
All lodging will be in shared 2-5 person rooms.
If you have a preference of whom you wish to share your room with, please inform us of that preference via email. Please bring your own sheets and towel. You can also rent sheets and towel from the center for €20.

Price
We want the Gathering to be a reasonable price and affordable for as many people as possible and thus the prices are lower than at our other retreats. The price will cover the program, accommodation, and all meals (breakfast, lunch, tea break and dinner), which will be provided to us by the retreat center.

The program €200 (or €180 for low-income earners)
Meals and lodging is €240 (€80 per day).

The Early Bird price is €440 when paid by 15 February (+ Eventbrite booking fee).
(For students and low-income earners, the early bird price is €420.)

After 15 February, the regular price will be €480 (+ Eventbrite booking fee).

A Hero’s Journey with Jonathan

Module 3: Death and Love

17 – 19.04.2020

Love and Death

This is the 3rd Module of The Hero’s Journey series of workshops to help Men awaken the power of their Mature Masculine.

For many this is the most powerful module of the series. When a man overcomes his fear of death and discovers the alchemy of authentic love, he receives the greatest gift: acceptance of what is and the ability to let go and live in the present moment. The secret of true happiness and peace.

Love and Death are the primary obsessions of human society. They are recurrent themes of literature, poetry, music, art and films. Depending on our relationship with ourselves and ultimately with life, we experience love and death as either blessings or condemnations.

In this module you will:

· Use the facticity of death as a powerful tool of introspection and meditation to allow you to see what is truly important in your life and experience a profound process of letting go and rebirth.

· Learn the secrets of love and pleasure and how to enhance your experience of sex.

· Learn the magic of forgiveness and gratitude as tools for letting go and being in the present moment.

· Be shown how to work with your emotions and to allow yourself to release past conditioning.

· Open the door to authentic love and compassion and use the power of your heart to transform your life. Read More: https://yotan.org/mens-coaching

Breath Training Part 3

with Pragita and Sudeva

2 – 9.5.2020

Most of us can breathe deeply after we’ve been born. It is natural. The whole body of a baby is breathing. Even many kids still breathe naturally, but the more we grow the more superficial breathing gets. Traumatic experiences we can’t deal with are stored in our body as tension, making our living space smaller. We lose the ability to be spontaneous and breathe naturally.

Deep breathing is a key back to natural breathing. When we start to breathe deeply, many things such as memories, fears and feelings arise from our unconscious. In order to move forward we should dive into the old situations on emotional level and face them again. This opens up the possibility for healing. Human being is like an onion: with breathing we go deeper layer by layer.

We often try to solve our problems by breathing less. Superficial breathing protects us from difficult emotions. At the same time also the scale of positive feelings becomes smaller. We breathe less and live less. A person who breathes deep, lives life to the fullest. A naturally breathing person can’t be depressed, because the whole scale of emotions is available. Everything in the person is in a state of flow.

In breathing groups we laugh a lot despite going through painful experiences. Everything connected to the human psyche is absurd and even funny. Natural breathing brings joy, space and freedom into life.

BREATH TRAINING

The art and science of inner transformation by energy oriented body- and breath therapy is essential part of professional therapy today! A deep understanding of breath for healing, wellbeing, loving relationships and spiritual awakening is of great importance. Knowing the breath you know the secret of life! From native wisdom to spiritual practice breath is recognized as the great force in existence. In many languages the word for breathing is synonymous with life itself.

You can only participate in the third week if you have been to the first or second week!

Timetable

Course starts at 6pm on Saturday and ends at 5pm on Saturday.

Thousands of people on 5 continents in over 40 countries have attended ISTA trainings over the past 10 years.

The vision of ISTA is to expand consciousness and sexuality across the globe. We are a movement that brings a knowledge base and provides resources to everyone, especially practitioners and guides to enhance their skillsets in all aspects of life mastery.
