100-hr Kundalini & Chakra Meditation Facilitator Training Program

 

100-hr Intensive Kundalini & Chakra Meditation Facilitator Training Program

There are many approaches to understand the art and science of meditation. Our approach is through Naturality, meaning to live according to your true nature. The Naturality approach is neither religious nor spiritual but natural; after learning the basics of meditation techniques and practices, you are encouraged to discover your unique way of meditating according to your natural personality. It is the easiest way to practice meditation. The practice of meditation promotes emotional healing and can be helpful for those suffering from a variety of acute and chronic health problems including stress-related disorders, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. The goal is to become free from fear and guilt and live with peace, passion and bliss.

Whether you are a practitioner of meditation or a beginner, this program will deepen your own meditation practice and will also enable you to teach meditation to individuals and groups.

This comprehensive and unique program is offered by Jivasu, founder of the Path of Naturality, and several of his fellow teachers, in association with and certified by the Canadian Yoga Alliance.

There are many approaches to understand and experience the Yoga of Kundalini and the Chakras. From the Naturality point of view, Kundalini and the Chakras constitute the supreme Yoga and contain the essence of all other Yogas, religions and spiritual paths. It is ancient yet contemporary, as it can be explained through spirituality and philosophy and also in terms of science without bringing any religion in to define it. Through its philosophy and practice we can understand and realize non-dual consciousness as well as our true selves and the world around us with all its chaos, politics, economy, joy, sufferings and cultural conflicts. To know Kundalini and the Chakras is to understand and realize what can be understood and realized at all levels of life.

What you will learn

In this 100-hour intensive teaching training course, taught in Toronto in September 2019, we will be focusing on both theory and practical meditation teachings, so that you will achieve mastery in the practice of Kundalini and Chakra methods to become a competent meditation facilitator.

Theory

Naturality: Naturality is an open, flexible and ever-evolving system of teachings that helps us to understand the root cause of life’s problems as well as to find the solutions within us. Guided by certain core principles and practices, individuals embark on the adventure of self-exploration. By walking the Naturality path, we build a healthy identity and discover our Inner Guru to guide us through a complex world. We eventually discover our natural self and are able to live fully.

Kundalini and Chakra Philosophy: Kundalini and Chakra philosophy is the study of Kundalini and the Chakras and their relationship with various types of yogas including Bhakti, Karma and Jnana Yoga, as well as other spiritual paths.

Kundalini Meditations: Meditation is the art and science of relaxation, awareness and expansion of awareness. It is the tool to transcend thoughts and a restless mind resulting in Samadhi or enlightenment. In this program we will be specifically focusing on those meditations which facilitate the awakening of Kundalini and the Chakras.

Kundalini and Chakra Anatomy & Physiology: Learn about the biology of the body and brain and how they are connected to yoga poses, breathing techniques, Kundalini and the Chakras. You will be trained in a scientific understanding of Kundalini and Chakras.

Kundalini, Chakra and Mental Health and Addictions: The awakening of Kundalini and the Chakras has a direct effect on mental health and addictions and can aid in their effective management. Participants will learn how they can empower people with mental health problems and addictions for better management of these issues.

Practice

Learn poses, movements, locks, mudras (gestures), seed mantras for Chakras, breathing exercises and meditations.

Meditations: You will learn the theory behind and practice a variety of meditations, including Naturality, Kundalini and Chakras meditations. You will also explore the effects of meditation on the body, emotions, thoughts and how various mind-body health problems can be relieved by meditation practice. Meditation can become holistic medicine without any negative side-effects.

Breathing exercises: Breathing exercises are techniques to regulate your breath. ‎The different types of breathing techniques you will practice include: Alternate nostril breathing, Chakra, Ujjayi, ‎Kapalabhati, ‎Bhastrika or bellow breathing and breath of dissolution.

Chanting: Chanting will focus on seed, tantric and Naturality sounds and mantras which aid in Kundalini and Chakra awakening.

Kriyas: Kriyas are the harmonious combination of movements and chants specific to chakras.

Mudras or gestures: Mudras are hand and limb gestures that facilitate the flow of Kundalini energy.

Bandhas or locks: Bandhas are specific body poses, movement along with breathing exercise that pool energy in our body and direct its flow into specific chakras and channels.

Affirmations: Affirmations are movements and sounds that bring out the core message of a chakra.

Knowledge of basic marma or acupuncture points for healing: Knowledge of marma points will add to your knowledge of energy channels and their connection with the Chakras and nadis or meridians. Specific sujun movements will be practiced to stimulate the marma points.

Besides the above, you will also learn how to become an effective and confident teacher and how to teach students with different physical and mental health conditions, including those one which are induced by spontaneous Kundalini awakening.

Teaching Methods

Experience based education – Experience these practices directly and also look into the source of experience.

Problem based learning – Explore the problem of fear, meaning in life, love, relationship, fulfillment, work and education.

Dialectical dialogue – Explore two poles of an experience or knowledge.

Self-inquiry – Who am I? Enquire into the origin of knowledge, beliefs and motives.

Healthy competition and co-operation – These help in realizing and expressing our potential and bring unique creativity to teachings without us feeling isolated. We have a fear of our own greatness, known as Jonah’s complex, which we have to overcome to experience the best in us.

We become big by becoming bigger, not by making others small – and then by helping others to grow.

Senso Sounds Showcase Australia

Senso Sounds Showcase Australia

 

Senso Sounds roared into life about four years ago, as a result of Oliver Huntemann’s intense passion for quality techno. This time they have teamed up with Warg to bring their first ever showcase in Australia at the infamous Xe54!

The showcase will feature two of their well knows and reputable artists Carlo Ruetz and André Winter.

Carlo Ruetz:

It was a breakthrough by name, and by nature. By 2013, Carlo Ruetz had been playing twisted technoid minimal for a decade, but it was his debut longplayer of that year – Breakthrough – that launched him into the spotlight. Within 24 hours of its release the album crashed into the top spot of Beatport’s minimal techno chart, and it also caught the discerning ear of Richie Hawtin. Since that unmissable moment, Carlo has only gathered more and more momentum; acclaimed EPs for MINUS, DEEPERFECT and KD MUSIC, alongside memorable performances at international Minus showcases and Richie Hawtin’s essential Ibiza night ENTER. Unique in sound and in situation, Carlo Ruetz is the ‘overnight sensation’ born of ten years in the trenches of the underground.
Rostock-bred Carlo bought his first turntables and mixer in 2001, and his devotion to the minimalist aesthetic was forged in his early sets. He soon became a regular fixture of clubs and open air parties in northern Germany, then broadened his horizons further, to blaze the stage at ENTER. Ibiza at Space, FUSE Brussels, TOFFLER Rotterdam, 10 DAYS OFF – The Last Waltz Ghent, and a 2015 tour through India. Carlo began writing his own compositions in 2010, and marked up releases for Moonplay Records and Slaap Records before the game-changing arrival of Breakthrough through Supdub Digitales. Carlo Ruetz is Known for starting from scratch with every production, mining deep for unexpected sounds and arrangements, and taking compelling bends and turns while in the DJ booth. It’s no surprise that Richie Hawtin counts Carlo Ruetz as part of the new Minus generation. Expect to hear more from this overnight veteran who exists at the leading edge of minimalism and techno.

André Winter:

Yes, André Winter is one of those people, who with their first breath of air, realize that their heart beats techno. Errr or no? You tell me! André became interested in electronic music quite early. One of his first releases on Injection Records in the early 90s (under the Motion Unit monicker together with Mathias Hatting), was actually a real acid treasure. Afterwards he kept on spending all his pocket money on the typi- cal Roland hardware at the time and to release on labels such as Confused Record- ings, Superstition, Kompakt and Bush Records. His studio offers a real time travel adventure through techno’s history.
André has come a long way since the 90s. Having released under various aliases, i.e. Motion Unit, Freakazoid, D-Saw…, he also produced great artists such as Xenia Beliayeva, Humate and Oliver Huntemann, also Dubfire and Huntemann and finally, having worked on remixes of world-renowned artists such as the Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Anthony Rother, ect. He decided that there is even more he has to offer to the public. This time – solo!
In the end of 2008 he released his first solo release Trauma on Ideal Audio. The re- views came in and the EP was summarized as being “a charming hit with lashing synths, simply massive” (De:Bug 2008). Soon after, André had to take a ‘break’ from his own productions and concentrate on Oliver Huntemann’s forth studio album “Pa- ranoid”. The result was a wonderful longplayer, which has been charted by DJs around the world. Whatever he touches, he turns to gold – so musically adept is Mr. Winter. He says: “I am always searching for opportunities which allow me to influence sounds in new ways and to simply take different routes in electronic music. My per- sonal goal is to produce timeless music, which people will be enjoying in the years to come”.
After a couple of solo records later, André released his first DJ Mix CD in 2013, which you can find on the Ideal Audio “5ünf” Compilation. Referring to all this and whilst listening to a few examples taken off this huge sound archive it becomes pretty obvious that André Winter carved out a niche of his own throughout all these years. His music is based on moody, partly dark’ish and always captivating grooves and structures – a unique, thriving and essential technoid vision built from only a few hand-picked, uber-functional ingredients perfectly complementing an ever floating, hypnotic state of mind.
Hard-work and being true to your beliefs do pay off. Having played already in Rex Club in Paris, Kasantip Festival, Weekend Berlin, Bootshaus Cologne, the small but legendary Harry Klein in Munich and rocking the Amsterdam Dance Event, etc…

SYNOPSIS

An incredible story of courage and the human spirit, which follows international celebrity endurance athlete Samantha Gash (Australian Survivor) on her epic 3,200km purpose-fuelled adventure across India.

3,200kms of pain and suffering along the roads of India. The journey of Australian endurance athlete and passionate social advocate Samantha Gash is fraught with peril and hardship, as she runs from the sweltering heat of the Rajasthan desert in the West to the mountainous tea estates in the East.

Any personal suffering from the run is placed into perspective as Samantha has partnered with World Vision to explore the barriers that children in India face to accessing a quality education.

Through visiting over 18 communities that World Vision work with across the country, Samantha learns first-hand about the challenges they face, as well as sharing the stories of success that are providing hope for their future.

She encounters the diversity of India, which is both beautiful and challenging, as well as the complex social issues that prevent education.

It is this greater purpose and the privilege of meeting those along the way, that makes putting one foot in front of the other – the easiest thing to do.
