|What is Awakening|
Prospectus for a one-year course. Guiding you in finding, opening and occupying your own centre in this turbulent modern world. (view the invitation to join)
How do we understand, relate to and engage with THIS experience?
This experience of Being, – Here, – Now, – In this world?
Of all the experiences we meet through being alive, the most profound is meeting another human being. If we remain open to all our experiences, we may notice that all the Joy and the Struggle of becoming who I truly Am is focussed on This meeting. Meeting in circles, the experience each of us has on this journey to become the “I” at the centre of our lives becomes the substance of our journey.
The course will activate this key element of Community: Learning through Being. Together, we will engage in various tasks in the light of “What experience does this create in me?”
True, deep sharing of these experiences will enable us to meet ourselves in the mirror of each other’s “me” as complement and enhancement of meeting it in me, myself.
Rudolf Steiner’s “Saturn Path” and his Foundation Stone meditation will be our guides. In order that we keep our focus in heart and will, I intend to offer short blocks to précis the major points of this cosmology. Our presence in, and relationship with TIME, with SPACE and this BODY of 5 or 12 senses is a cosmology large enough to offer a complete alternative or complement to the cosmology dominant today. The modern view, of limitless galaxies set within billions of years, spins us out of our true centre, offering no concept of why about anything. Steiner’s cosmology offers to relocate us in the centre and facilitate the very reason we choose life: – To experience ourselves as a centre of consciousness, a centre of our world, enabling responsibility.
To help us absorb and digest concepts as vast as a whole cosmology without falling into intellectual-default mode, these sessions will be framed by others in which we move our bodies, engage with nature or with art, prepare food and eat together. In this way the course aims to help you integrate Head, Heart and Hands as co-respondents in discovering: “How do I maximize this experience of being Human, of being me?”
The Foundation Stone meditation combined with daily soul-exercises contains the seeds of all of this. Germinating these seeds will be the joy and the harvest.
Lead facilitator will be Tobias Kaye, a third generation Anthroposopher, Michael Hall, Emerson College, Worshipful Company of Turners, founder of the historically unique Sounding Bowls. Tobias has led personal development courses in Europe and the USA and, more recently on Zoom.
