Around the full moon in July this summer (Guru Purnima), I taught Phase 3, the last phase of the Advanced Technique Course series. Participants gave some wonderful feedback on their experiences, including profound shifts both in their meditation and in their being (see below photo).
This led me to reflect on the experience of going through the door to what lies within, and the many new experiences that unfold from there, forever. What can one really say about that? How can one explain it?
The “Kingdom Within” is so distinctly different or seemingly separate from the world of daily hustle and bustle that consumes people. As the inner cobwebs clear, everything is different. But what to do with it is, at first, not fathomed. Certainly not fully understood, as life continues to fly by, with all the distractions, mindsets, wantings, longings, passions, and emotions that dominate people. It takes time to assimilate and integrate all the levels of life, ranging from the transcendental depth to the surface. That assimilation and integration is “the hero’s journey”.
Yet, in quiet moments, inner knowledge is all available, all right there: “The Kingdom of Heaven Dwells Within”.
What Participants are Saying:
“… I am experiencing corners of the universe and of my own physiology that I was not aware of. Magnificent!”– M.P.
“I have been opened up in the most natural way to allow the experience of all the Advanced Techniques, culminating with the Phase 3 techniques. The Phase 3 Techniques create a phase transition in thinking and experiencing and I liken them to the grand finale of what was built for us in the prior phases. Inside myself there is more space, more clarity, more freedom. It’s an incredible and priceless gift…”– M.B.
“Phase 3 is really different from Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 and Phase 2 were like building blocks on which Phase 3 was added. It feels like there are some major transformations taking place.”– A.N.
“The Phase 3 Advanced Technique Course is amazing. Phase 1 and 2 laid the groundwork, culminating in a whole new experience of meditation in Phase 3. I suspect a whole new set of results will ensue over the coming days and feel a quantum leap forward is imminent.”– D. D.
Another Great Pic!
Phase 3 is amazing. so nice to see other responses. Thank you for bring this ancient technique to our age. Hopefully everyone will be able to learn all techniques
Phase 3 is extraordinary. It’s really transforming. I’ve noticed that since the Advanced Techniques 3 course, I feel as if that “Kingdom With” is lively, not only in my meditations, but in my daily life and activity. It’s a real gift to have that in my life as I work, shuttle kids, make dinner…live life. Thank you so much for sharing this Knowledge with us.
Reading these comments I’m thinking, “Wow! And I thought — at the time I was learning them — that Phase 1 and Phase 2 were life changing.” I’m looking forward to learning Phase 3 this winter. Thank you all in the Ashram for taking the lead!
