To A Mind that is still the whole Universe surrenders

BE Still… and know joy that isn’t dependant on the situation or circumstance.

This course offers insight into our thought patterns and how psychological tendencies (Kleshas) are distancing us from our true everlasting inner peace and happiness.

It is when we realize what we truly are (awareness) that a satisfaction and fulfillment shines forth from within.  This state of enlightenment, self-realization, reveals that you are Everything, complete and free.

This course is for you if:

  • Your mind is rarely still
  • You find that your thoughts disturb your meditation
  • You find it hard to surrender into silent witnessing
  • You have thoughts such as: ”When I have… then I'll be happy”
  • External circumstances decide how happy you are
  • You want to understand the making of ego (Iness)
  • You want to be able let go mind with ease
  • You want to know your true nature, causeless happiness and peace

Course Description

The nature of yourself is innate inner peace,

still fulfillment, bubbling potential and blissful joy,

which is not dependent of external circumstances or occurrences.

But before knowing yourself as non dual Awareness, boundless & formless presence, nothing and everything, you identify yourself as a body with a mind, a thinker, a knower… but you are so much more than that!

Perhaps you have felt a profound inner stillness in meditation, or moments of complete presence in nature, only to be swept away again by the whirlwind of mind. Again thoughts will reassure you of the mistaken identification as a limited self, which stands in the way of feeling the truth of what you are in every moment. Peace. Pure presence.

This course is conveying insight into the human tendency of suffering -conditional happiness- and the mind’s patterns and thought construct and most importantly how psychological tendencies relate to a notion of being separate, which we initially mistake for real.

Before knowing ourselves as All, a certain understanding is necessary for the egomind to loosen its grip to its own self-sustaining structures, which will allow for deeper surrender to happen and the recognition of what is already there.

You are already Enlightened, but when still under the influence of thoughts, the veil of ignorance is still seemingly there. This course helps you look into that veil, to understand it and see through it and see what was there all along. Your divine true nature as nondual Awareness. Sat Chit Ananda. Truth Consciousness Bliss.

Understand the false, know the real.

Is this not the purpose of life to uncover?

Course Outline

MODULE 1: Ignorance the cause of suffering

We look into suffering (which can be misery and pain but also the very subtle longing for more inner peace and joy) and conditioned happiness being the experience of lack of wholeness and learns how the mind turns our natural bliss into misery, or limited joy, by its own projection as a limited self.

 

Learn: 
  • What is ignorance?
  • What is suffering and conditional happiness?
  • What is veiling the intimate experience of our true nature and why?
  • What is ego?
MODULE 2: Perpetuating habitual patterns

Through studying the Kleshas of the Yoga Sutras we see how these psychological tendencies filter the present experience with the colour of our personal karmic imprints. Through understanding the Kleshas and their interrelational patterns we can begin to become more aware of our patterns of reassuring identity to the false self through the constant thought stream.

 

Learn:
  • About the 5 Kleshas and how they work together
  • How the Iness (ego) is formed
  • How and why we tend to avoid to see the truth of our being, and of the present moment experience
  • How we repeatedly create more un-ease for ourselves
  • How the cyclic nature of upholding and recreating an identity as a limited self functions
MODULE 3: See the false nature of Iness through self-reflection

In this module we study the Yamas and Niyamas and cultivate self-reflection as a way to understand the veil of ignorance, to come closer to observing and witnessing our experiences and thoughts.

Yamas are about restraining behaviours that are motivated by grasping, aversion, and delusion (three of the Kleshas, tendencies that create the veil of ignorance).

Niyamas are aspects to observe that are helping us to gain greater understanding of the mind patterns and understand the falsity of the thought-defined self.

 

Learn:
  • About the Yamas and Niyamas
  • 8 tricks to let go thoughts
  • Useful attitudes
  • How to step into an observing awareness and greater trust
MODULE 4: The Power of love

Looking into triggered reaction, we see egos getting hurt, stories of victimhood or wrongdoing on repeat, not feeling loved or appreciated, heard or seen enough. We see why challenging situations are attracted to you and how to use the internal power of Love to clear and release the trapped energy of previous trauma or withheld emotions, AND provide you with the opportunity for self-realization.

 

Learn:
  • How many triggers in everyday life stem from not being loved enough.
  • Two approaches to emotional reaction
  • The importance of Self-love
  • How to use Love to thin the coloring of Kleshas and decrease the effect from your karmic conditioning.
MODULE 5: See the false through waking, dream & sleep

The Mandukya Upanishads gives us another approach to unveiling the false and see how illusory our understanding of our self is.

 

Learn:
  • How what we take for real is not, through the debunking of basic definitions of why something should be real.
  • The inquiry of AUM
  • The inquiry of Self
  • How the three states of waking, dream and deep sleep is all in the forth called Turya and you are That.

Gyani Grace

With a childhood fascination of the relationship between thought and emotion, Gyani built the foundation for realization of the illusory self and a yogic life from early on. Life being the greatest teacher along with studies of Mindfulness, Samkya & Yoga Philosophy, Ashtanga Yoga, Vedanta and non duality, one could call this part of her path an inquiry of Gyan Yoga.

An understanding of the activity and nature of mind paved way for knowing the real, and as Shaktipat initiation by Rohanji met a prepared bodymind system an acceleration ensued, supported by a profound trust which mind and ego had developed through knowing its own nature as but a thought construct.

An intense sadhana of focused self-inquiry followed, continuing her path of logic yet intensely guided by intuition and mystical experiences. A natural surrender occurred and deeper more profound levels of Self-Realization unfolded and integration continued – and continues.

Gyani finds that she repeatedly conveys knowledge of the constructs of mind in sessions, satsang and workshops on the subject and now a short yet potent course has formed to meet a need for this crucial understanding.

”The mind needs to understand enough to be able to let go.”
