In this class, Hae Kwang Sunim will share his many amazing teachings of Zen and QiGong Healing which he learned while living in the monasteries abroad as he studied and trained to become a Monk. Learn HOW to access the stillness and Qi vitality that is your birthright. Please note that this class is a talk, and does not involve meditation practice.
In very practical language this class emphasizes tools and essential / experiential Zen mechanics to bring peace and harmony back into one’s daily life.
Topics discussed will also include:
What increases ‘Monkey Mind’ and strengthens unsupportive thought patterns in our rotating mental / psychological orbit.
How to untie painful knots and access True Self. Ego 101 and instructions on the skillful use of the Zen scalpel that liberate us from so many judgmental, limiting beliefs.
Zen, releasing & inner freedom: Mind and the two operating systems; how to address acidic ‘holding patterns’ and the body’s residual (energetic) karmic pull which can keep us stuck and limits deeper spiritual insights from arising.
An exploration of the deeper aspects of ego, its maturation and Velcro hold in the body-mind. It also addresses the ‘backward step’ to the boundless fundamental consciousness and freedom beyond the ego’s karmic pull.
All are welcome!
Upcoming Dates: Will be posted soon.
Hae Kwang Sunim started training at the age of 18 in Thailand. He has taken full seminary and in temple training, with graduated ordinations (including Bhikkhu ordination) under Patriarch Kun Sunim in South Korea. He spent over 25 years distilling the deepest and hardest to grasp teachings into a simplified language so it can be taught and effectively applied directly in daily life. In 2005, the 19th Headquarters in Korea appointed Venerable Hae Kwang as Director of Bo Kwang Zen Center Palm Springs, U.S.A. In 2013, the Western Bhikkhus Council nominated Hae Kwang Sunim 교구장 Kyo Goo Jahng of all American-European Temples (closest english translation: North American-European Oversight Head / Bishop / Director).
Hae Kwang Sunim drew from the most effective mind-body teachings he acquired from studying under different teachers in the East, including the teachings of Wat Bua Luang in Thailand. The methodology is based on the ancient Eastern principles of Hai Palung (Energy Healing), Pon Klie Kwan Sow (Emotional Release), Meditation, Food Based Healing and the importance of compassion, gratitude, oneness, outreach and the need to support the whole person holistically - body, mind and spirit.
A new style of yoga created by Suniti: Axiatonal Yoga!
Date to be announced soon.
Humans have a field of subtle energy which is often referred to as the energy field, aura or etheric body. This energy is made up of emotional, spiritual and mental particles. We also have Axiatonal lines, a type of acupuncture or meridian lines, which are energetic pathways that supply our physical bodies with vital energy. This energy extends from the ground, into the atmosphere and out into the universe. A few terms for this are the "Cosmic lattice", "Universal grid" and "Living Universe". The Cosmic Lattice is a specific kind of energy, it is something so common that it is around us all the time. It is the energy of Love. At one time, our own Axiatonal lines were connected to the Cosmic Lattice and specific points out in the Universe, however, over time we have become disconnected from these lines.
In this very unique class, we will combine the natural energetic opening that yoga brings with the re-awakening of our axiatonal lines to help us attain a deeper connection with ourselves, release blockages, and attain a greater sense of balance! As we engage in gentle hatha and easy flow poses, we will trace and activate our own axiatonal lines and spin points.
Benefits of Axiatonal Alignment:
* Opens and aligns your meridian channels, and removes blockages * Balances your chakras and the polarity of your body * Releases physical, emotional or spiritual limitations * Balances, centers and focuses your mind * Clears negative emotional patterns * Produces deep relaxation and a sense of well-being * Powerfully boosts the effects of other therapies such as Reiki, Massage and Reflexology. * Improves physical mobility and mental alertness
