Presence, Flowering, Flow: Ascension Meditation Course w/Ishtar Ishaya
Friday, April 1, 2022 at 1:00 pm EST/ 10 am PST/ 8 am Hawaii/ 6 pm London
Class 3 Opening to the Intuitive, the Re-enchantment of Life
Intuition is a completely natural faculty, as natural as any other. It need not be thought of as something radically different from the five senses with which most are familiar. We’ve simply been taught to live in ways that dim the sense and constrict the intuitive flow. Even as intuition tends to naturally open with effective meditation, there are simple practices that nurture synchronicity and foster the opening of the intuitive. We shall explore several of these.

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.
