We are excited to offer this special weekend retreat , hosted by Eden Alkaline Health at Garragh Mhor with facilitator Mikael Spector
Oneness and the Glorious Body
The term Oneness implies unity, integrality or synthesis. It can have great meaning psychologically, socially, philosophically and physically. However "Oneness" is often considered a mere abstraction or a weak idea in the face of division, separation and disintegration.
The 6 main faculties of self - Spiritual - peace freedom and unity of being , Intellectual- conscious measure and speech intelligence , Psychic- Love balancing harmonizing direction Vital - will, sense , instinct and vitality, Executive - initiative and practicality, Material our physical body and world - are all one - yet in our divided awareness and energy are quite often dissociated, separated, not synchronized and not unified.
The Practice of MudrAsana
We can identify, reclaim and abide in it through a practice we call "MudrAsana". Bodily posture, position, gesture, movement, dance, music, stillness, form, force, spaciousness, fluidity, breath, attitude, intention, relation with what surrounds and with other bodies, become in MudrAsana, the very life, the chamber and shrine of wellness, health and happiness in balance and completeness.
I myself whether wide open, happy and all connected or separate in whatever distress. I am in the midst of all the six aspects of myself, Spirit, Light, Love, Power, Action, and Matter. The Merkava, chariot or vehicle of "the conscious-energy Self", is around me, near and far, extending into my body's structures substance and mass.
The activation of the Merkava - "MudrAsana", uses and integrates a wide range of methods/systems described below.
In the Integral Yoga
Understanding and experiencing Oneness within myself:mind, heart and body, in society and world, is the perspective and the method of Sri Aurobindo's Integral Yoga and the basis of MudrAsana. Oneness is wholly perceived from the depths of my "Psychic Being" - my manifesting soul presence, and from the wide silent concentrated expanses of "supra-mental" consciousness.
There is awareness in the body in the three Doshas (imbalancing tendencies in nature) -
Vatta - Distraction of mind; Pitta - Agitation of heart; Kapha - Dullness of body
There is awareness in the body of the 5 Elements
Space:Empty, Wide, Still; Air:Traveling, Relating; Fire:Radiant, Concentrated;
Water:Flowing, Unifying: Earth:Solid, Settle
There is awareness in the body of the unified play of the three gunas:(the primary modes of nature) -
Consciousness - Luminosity - Sattva Above
Energy - Intensity - Rajas Within and around
Substance - Density - Tamas Below
We study the science and art of Receiving, Containing, and Radiating from within the cosmic expanse all around, through the individual and group aura, and into body and world.
Awareness in the body of the 7 principle levels.
Corresponding to Seven Chakras
A core practice in the mystical tradition of the Kabbalah is breathing the spiritual unity of the Tree of Life which is Light-Love-Power-Precision, the Silent Name, lettered Yod-Hey-Vav-Hey. By opening our awareness through the fourfold breath to the Four Worlds on the Tree of Life:Emanation, Creation, Formation, Action, a sacred truth is within our reach by which the Merkavah, or conscious-energy of the self is progressively activated:
Material physical substance, is linked with life force, prana, and has its origin in it.
Energy or Prana, is linked with consciousness and has its origin in it.
Consciousness or awareness, is linked with being and has its origin in it.
Being purely perceived, is invisible silent still and all-pervading
Matter = Energy = Consciousness = Being
