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.

ABOUT MINDFULNESS WORKS

Mindfulness Works is one of Australia’s largest mindfulness training organisation. Every month over 600 people complete the Mindfulness Works introductory course across Australia and New Zealand.

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” — Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine).

Modern research about mindfulness and meditation shows that over time and with regular practice, mindfulness offers significant benefits to people including less stress, less anxiety, greater focus, calm and happiness.

“NZ Mental Health Foundation mental health promoter Grant Rix says mindfulness has been shown to benefit our brains to such an extent that we can feel calmer, more aware, have an increased ability to focus and concentrate, remember things better and feel happier.” — NZ Mental Health Foundation Press Release July 2012

THE BENEFITS OF MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION

With regular practice and over time, mindfulness and meditation can offer the following benefits.

Reduced stress and anxiety

Improved sleeping patterns

Increased relaxation

Greater self-awareness and emotional intelligence

Deeper levels of self-acceptance and self-love

“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex…This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. …The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.” — Psychology Today

MPORTANT NOTE FOR THOSE WITH CLINICAL OR SEVERE DEPRESSION

Many studies show that with regular practice and over time (at least 8 weeks), mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety. However if you have severe or clinical depression, it is important that you receive specialist medical advice.

About your trainer

Blair Bowker

For the last 25 years my passion for kayaking and exploring has taken me around the world. It was during these travels, back in 1996, that I first came into contact with meditation and mindfulness in Kathmandu, Nepal, where I attended my first 30 day meditation retreat – the first of many. Hooked, I spent the next several years in India learning the art of meditation under various teachers.

My deep interest in how meditation could be more fully integrated into my daily life took me around the world practicing meditation and living in retreat centers. I spent two years living at the Insight Meditation Society in Massachusetts, USA, set up by Jack Kornfield and Joseph Goldstein, where I studied with a variety of teachers as well as doing longer meditation retreats for up to two months.

I practiced mindfulness for 15 years, yet something was still missing. Somehow deep patterns remained unmoved. This drew me to Psychosynthesis, a holistic therapy with mindfulness at its heart. Working with a Psychosynthesis therapist, I started to uncover these patterns and drives and integrate what I had learnt through meditation.

Some of my other working background includes setting up and running projects for isolated and homeless youth, training organisations in social networks and communication, life coaching, and working within the mental health sector. I also work with sports teams and athletes, teaching them mindfulness to help improve their performance.

I am a qualified counselor working in private practice and training as an Psychosynthesis psychotherapist with the Institute of Psychosynthesis New Zealand. I have also just recently completed an eight-week Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) course with Dr Russ Harris and regularly attend workshops and courses so I can continue to better myself and stay updated with the latest research and practices.

I aim to help people transform and accept themselves deeply.  I am interested in how we can be fully alive and present to all of life, even its challenges, while staying connected to a sense of ease.
