Carlos De Leon – Talking to your Unconscious

 

5-day retreat, Arachova 25-30 June 2022

 

Meditation retreat Amrita.gr

The biggest part of our perception about our self and the world and the way we experience reality and act in our everyday life, are located in our unconscious mind.

 

Freud believed that our conscious part is only the top of an iceberg, when the huge mass of it is located under the water, away from the light, hidden in deep darkness.

 

What we call “I”, is just a small part of the reality we are. Our conscious views, thoughts and actions are dictated by the huge mass of information, experiences and archetypes hidden in our unconscious mind.

In these 5 days we will first review the principles involved in the work of recognizing and integrating our conscious experience with the unconscious.
One of the things that is most difficult for a practitioner to achieve, is to be able to identify their different states of consciousness in meditation on a path of liberation.
Always trying to find closer approaches to our modern way of being, we are going to experience a new presentation of meditative states.

 

We are going to practice different techniques to purify our mental experience and interpretation of reality, as well as take advantage of the power of working in conjunction with our conscious experience and the wisdom and potential of our unconscious.

Through explanations, exercises and guided visualization in deep relaxation, we will try to penetrate and identify the 7 States of the Experiencer (Pramatrin), of Shaivist Trika Tantra, related to the experiences of the Observer in Dozgchen.
 

This retreat is designed so that anyone can participate regardless of level of experience in meditation, and addresses to all those who want to connect to their self in a deeper level and evolve consciously

We are going to work in 3 different areas:

 

  •  We will review the principles involved in the inner work of recognizing and integrating our unconscious experience to our conscious self.

 

Though different techniques, we will purify our mental experience and interpretation of Reality. Also, we will try to use our unconscious wisdom and potentiality in our conscious experience working in those 4 areas:

 

  1. The recognizing of our neurotic contents and what to do with them.

  2. How to drink from your unconscious wisdom.

  3. Autogenic Therapy

  4. Guided visualizations to recognize different states of consciousness and to try to clarify the Contemplation state.

 

  • We are going to practice chikung, integrating different exercises of the martial art chikung.

 

  • We will explore the Seven States of the Perceiver (Sapta-Pramatrin), of the Trika Shaivist School, which constitute a map for the different states of consciousness produced in meditation. We are going to have a taste of them by working with Guided Visualization, aiming to clarify and facilitate our experience in a Meditation path.

 

The teachings will start on June 25 at 12:00 noon and finish on June 30 at 14:00.
