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!
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.
Journey to the Expression of Spirit… Through the portal of your dreams
We are continuing our shamanic healing and transformational journey with the fifth chakra, the center that represents the expression of the truth of our spirit as we journey through this life. The element associated with this center is ether, the pure energy of spirit that enables our dreams to come to life. Dreams are connected to the specific, concrete expression of our mission in this incarnation, therefore honouring our dreams is very important for our soul’s evolution. The throat center also relates to our power to manifest what we desire. If between the ages of 25 and 40, we experienced many challenges, instead of having the ability to generate and self-actualize, we may find ourselves stagnating and incapable of bringing forth what we really want for ourselves. There may be a need to go back and heal some unfinished business in the previous chakras.
It is time for us to move past the nightmares and fears of the past and fully express our inner spirit, and this, we can do through a process of shapeshifting that involves powerful archetypal energies and the elements.
Highlights of this event will include:
Guided journey to actually find our dream so that we can interact with its energy, receive any messages it has for us, discover what it wants to bring to us and what it requires from us. The dream that presents itself may be different than the one you think you have. This may also be an opportunity to discover what your dream is if you don’t have one.
We will each construct our own mesa, a sacred altar with healing objects (huacas) that represent the five elements, and we will journey through the mesa to know if our dream is in fact coming from a place of integrity. This will help us distinguish dreams from fantasies.
We will “dance the elements” to activate our inner power, and practice a few yoga poses to “seed our dream”.
We will heal through a shapeshifting process, and practice a healing extraction on ourselves to release an old blocked energy that has been preventing our true self-expression.
Finally, we will “redream” our nightmares to bring forth protection, guidance, support and love to our fears to help them shift into higher vibrations that nurture instead of hinder.
Whenever we come together as a group with a heartfelt intention to heal and transform with the help of archetypal energies, the directions, and the elements, amazing things happen! Be prepared to experience a transformation that will bring you closer to the full expression of your spirit, and the manifestation of your dream.
Important: In order to prepare for this special event, you will need to bring to class a journal, a piece of cloth on which to put your sacred objects, and sacred objects that you can collect in nature or that you may already have that represent the five elements: earth (rock, crystal, branch, tree leaves, etc) water (any type of water in a small container) fire (an unscented candle) air (feather, bird image, etc) ether (anything that represents “spirit” for you)
