Class 4: The Soul Song
Each one of us is very much like a song. To live that song is our purpose. Our psyche is akin to the costume within the Divine Play. One of the most unfortunate side effects of deep identification as a separate self is the difficulty it adds to playing our part with any kind of fullness. In this class we will explore some ways of learning to listen to the authentic music of the soul, tuning into the heart, and recognizing the purpose (Dharma) at the heart of life. Additionally, I will draw from my background as an astrologer, and present some of the major ways the Dharma is visible within the natal chart.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After you RSVP, an email confirmation will be sent to you for this class. Your link for joining the class will be in the email confirmation.
An Introduction to Ascension Meditation with Ishtar Ishaya
We are welcoming back Ishtar Ishaya, an Ishaya monk. Ishtar aims to present techniques and knowledge that deepen and enliven the evolutionary process through many stages of the journey through a series of classes. This initial session will be an introduction to the whole series of courses. This series of classes can be taken as a whole or a la carte, even as he has designed them to be taken as a flowing sequence. They can be divided into three facets of spiritual development:
-the discovery and immersion into Pure Awareness,
-the often dynamic healing of our body-mind-psyche,
-and the flowering into one’s fullest potential.
Of course, all of these developments overlap significantly, and also tend to repeat at different levels of depth.
My childhood was filled with mystical and paranormal experiences, but the most impactful event was an NDE at age 13 from a car accident that also killed my beloved mother. Perhaps the most significant aspect was total oneness with everything, the core of that state being a state of consciousness with many names: Samadhi, Turiya, Satori, the Peace that Passes Understanding. This experience hung on for several months before fading at the commencement of 8th grade. Getting back to that experience soon became the driving desire of life, a drive which found me living in an ashram at age 18, and finding my way back to the vastness I found through the NDE. Helping other people to connect to this vastness (without the hassle of an NDE!) is a large part of my own life purpose.
