with Master* Awareness Facilitator
*From the Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic, by Osho:
"The master helps you to reach your own experience. He does not give you
Koran, the Bible; he throws you to yourself. He makes you aware of
your own juice, of your inner sources, of your own godliness. He liberates
you from the scriptures. He liberates you from the interpretations of
others. He liberates you from all belief. He liberates you from all
speculation, from all guesswork. He liberates you from philosophy and from
religion and from theology. He liberates you, in short, from the world of
words--because the word is the problem. To be an individual is to be liberated, is to be enlightened."
Create an AWARENESS FACILITATOR TRAINING SCHOOL in order to train a
multitude of AWARENESS FACILITATORS to go out into people's homes to start
up small, intimate AWARENESS GROUPS.
A School of TRANSFORMATION, an alchemical School--from unconsciousness to
consciousness, from intellectual to intuitional, from darkness to light.
The Gestalt Perspective and the Mindfulness/Meditative Approach will form the basis
of the Training. Since money is NOT the objective, the cost should be VERY
reasonable and fair. (Monies received go to pay the taxes, heat and
maintenance of the Retreat Center).
We are blessed with two physical locations: the New Age Center in Nyack,
and the Point of Infinity Retreat Center near Ellenville.
The TENTATIVE Components will consist of:
-short/long meditative exercises with IMMEDIATE feedback
-mindful stretching/yoga with feedback
-required/suggested readings, DVD's
-learn the Gestalt Perspective and applications
-listening/communication Facilitator skills
-other modalities as arise
NOTE: Many groups meet to SIT PASSIVELY to watch and listen to
"gurus"/"enlightened" teachers and maybe share for a short time afterwards.
Our vision is to have MAXIMUM communication/sharing, emphasizing
EXPERIENCES/EXPERIMENTS, yet with lots of SILENCE. Remember: SHARE, don't
People want to be heard
People want to talk
People want to be accepted
People want to BELONG
People want SILENCE
People want to grow spiritually with mutual support
People want to "AWAKEN"
Sample Group Circles (curricula) will be created with suggested group
activities (theory and practice) and Awareness Facilitators will also modify these and
create their own versions.
More information will be forthcoming in the near future, concerning
start-up meetings and dates. Inquiries are welcomed.
