SAMADHI

Bringing Together Subject & Object

in the Full Spectrum of Coalescence

 

Five-Module Online Course, Dec 2020 – Jan 2021

Dear Friend, 

 

It’s a great joy to share this knowledge of the intricacies of the process of integration, what the term samadhi is known for. And I’m fully aware of the gravity of the moment represented by this challenging transition we are going through collectively, with all of its unease, uncertainty and unpredictability. The balance of opposing energies is required at all times, yet it’s hard to think of a more urgent time when harmony is needed more than ever. At the times when disintegration is considered a norm, the question of integration is no longer a luxury of spiritual pursuit but a matter of survival and now synonymous with sanity. 

 

This course is aimed at bridging individual concerns, represented by the human condition and existential quest, with what we perceive as the reality of the world out there. This in turn, ultimately speaking, is inseparable from bringing together subject and object, as has been pointed out by all perennial traditions of the East and West. Despite a seeming straightforwardness, this process of merging is a fine art in itself and has been dealt with, with astonishing precision by certain traditions, some of which we will unpack during the course. 

 

When conceiving this course, the incentive was to give emphasis on the practical aspects represented by deeply personal, and very intimate in nature, meditative processes. We will also draw a distinction between some of the most significant interpretations of Samadhi and what it represents in terms of our direct, firsthand experience of what brings wholeness where it rightfully belongs. Welcome to join, and to merge.

WHAT IS SAMADHI?

The highest state of meditative absorption, also known as Integration or “bringing together”, is the joining of various elements into one stream of integral flow. According to Yoga Philosophy there are different degrees of coalescence, some deeper and more complete than others: from meditative absorption with cognitive functioning; to the cognition-less withdrawal of the Self abiding as Awareness; to the ultimate state of Sahaja Samadhi, as that spontaneous absorption whilst going about your daily duties. 

 

Drawing a comparative analysis on the experience and understanding of Samadhi between classical Patanjali Yoga and Kashmir Shaiva Philosophy, in this online immersion you will learn about the key processes behind spiritual transformation: 

  • Progressive internalisation in the process of absorption and subject-object dynamics 

  • Moving from dichotomised thought-construct to thought-free states 

  • Dissolution/integration of the sense of separate self, and the re-emergence of Universal Identity  

  • Absorption of the individual mind into Universal Consciousness

  • The role of Bio-plasmic field (Prana) in the transformation of consciousness

  • Importance of Correct Attitude (Bhavana)

  • On Intensity of Experience

"I felt I was being held in the field of a more refined frequency and being tuned kindly yet forcefully, as a musical instrument. Intense meditation in this container allowed me to access deeply seated energetic blockages in body-mind and gave me a sense of expansion from a much-contracted condition. All of this, in a vibration of love which is hard to describe (can only be experienced), and I felt I was acting like a magnet, pulling resistance from the bottom of my being."

HOW THE COURSE

UNFOLDS . . .

The course will provide both indispensable knowledge and opportunities for practice.


The aim of the course is to give direct and immediate access into the internal dynamics of all meditative processes, with an emphasis on the bio-energetic field which prana plays as a conduit between consciousness and physiology. 

 

Guided through the science of yoga and based on time-tested references of lesser known sacred texts on meditation—but more importantly, via invaluable insights gained from the immense personal experiences of the courses’ leader—the participants will verify these rare insights through their own experiences there and then. 

 

The course is structured in 5 modules, with 3 pre-recorded sessions which you will be able to watch or listen to at your own leisure and 2 live broadcasts.  The first 3 parts will provide you with insights that can be integrated into your practice, leaving you with the opportunity to send in questions before the last 2 parts dedicated to in-person interactions in response to any questions that may arise during the online course. 

 

WHOM THIS COURSE IS FOR

 

 

The course is opened to all levels: from beginner to intermediate to advanced. It is of special value to teachers and enthusiasts of yoga, as well as to scholars and those involved in spiritual work on themselves or those working as therapists in the field of psychology. This program is for all those who are desirous of real breakthrough in their meditative practices, with the sole goal of realising their Universal identity which is divine in essence.
