Awakening of Consciousness
In the theoretical classes we will work on the perception process. How do I perceive my reality? What does my reality say about me? Why do we suffer and for what? During the training we will be guided towards a new mental model away from established parameters and limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are unconscious programs that have been imprinted on our personality in the form of patterns that weave our destiny. But it is not an irremediable destiny, it is a base from which to begin to transform and grow. We can co create our reality and we do it but unconsciously, it is about making it conscious. Our unconscious patterns offer us a basis on which to work to keep evolving towards what is best for our spirit, that is, for us. We will take care of this task in depth.
We will learn to attend to our spiritual needs. What are the needs of my spirit? We will give them the power they really have.
Conscious breathing as a life channel between our personality and our being. Channel and source of vital energy, to which I can go to regenerate. We can get more energy through our breathing and find answers gracefully to it. We will study the breath as an extension of life and as a reflection of our mind. In the classes of conscious breathing we will isolate our mental blocks through the observation of our breathing. And we will learn to massage our internal organs through breathing.
Throughout the training we will follow the thread of the theoretical classes through an existential scheme that I have called “consciousness map”. We will develop topics such as the Jungian shadow, personality vs. individuality, desire in today’s society and relationships. In the map of consciousness together with the study of the concepts mind, body, spirit soul intertwines the study of the spiritual laws that govern existence. They will be treated in order to know them and make use of them for our greatest happiness.
