Elemental Meditation II
Elemental Meditation II is an 8 week course for intermediate and advanced meditators. Here we will look into the nuances of meditation. *Elemental Meditation I must be completed in order to participate in this course.
By using our senses, what we have used since birth, we already have a grasp into our meditation process. We turn our "searchlights" (taste, touch, smell, sound, and sight) inward toward what's happening in our body.
Referred to as "body awareness", the practice of this technique moves beyond the body into the astral realms. This is where the consciousness goes when one is sleeping.
As we are able to integrate into our waking life the understandings gained through conscious awareness in the astral realms, we develop the ability to move into the causal realm.
Here lies Superconsciousness, a state of all-knowing, all-seeing, and all-being. It is what is referred to as the opening of the spiritual eye. One-pointed concentration (dharana) leads into meditation (dhayana) which leads into samadhi (superconsciousness). This is what we will explore in this course.
