The 21 Stages of Meditation: Journey 1 – The Crystallized Self
March 11 @ 9:30 am - March 12 @ 5:00 pm PST
If you are interested in The 21 Stages of Meditation course, you have likely already begun practicing some form of meditation. This course will give you a dynamic experience and help you gain a greater understanding of the effects of meditation. You will feel confident to explore ways to go even deeper in your practice. This course is for anyone – whether you are a beginner or an experienced meditator from any tradition.
Meditation develops the Default Mode Network in your brain, helping you to stay on track in your life and in your thinking. This network can be developed in many ways – by playing a musical instrument or by having a hobby that you love – but meditation is a profound way to promote your sense of happiness and joy in your life!
In this program, participants can engage in three separate journeys. Each journey is comprised of seven stages, taking you step-by-step into a deeper level of awakening and realization. We will move through the rudimentary skills of meditation to the deeper levels of awareness and integration and finally into identity, projection, and merger in the infinite pulse of creation.
Each journey takes two days – you can choose to sign up for a single journey or complete all three journeys consecutively. The dates for our 21 Stages are:
Journey 1 – The Crystallized Self: March 11 & 12, 2023
Journey 2 – The Expressive Self: April 15 & 16, 2023
Journey 3 – The Transcendent Self: May 20 & 21, 2023
Journey 1 – March 11-12, 2023
The First Journey is about the Crystallized Self. You can confront and overcome blocks that are encountered during the first stages of meditation. This stage involves feeling our way through the meditative journey of what “stops” us from meditation; frustration, being upset, boredom, etc. Learn how to bring your focus back when thoughts and emotions distract you from realizing your Essential Self.
