BOOKING YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS AT ASILOMAR >>  LINK TO BE AVAILABLE SOON
Once you have registered for the course (link above), in a  few days you will receive a separate email with an ONLINE ASILOMAR LINK in order for you to book your group-rate accommodations directly with Asilomar (selecting a single room, double, triple or quad), identify any meal limitations, or choose a “commuter meal plan” for those of who will not be staying at Asilomar, but staying offsite some other place.

 

STAYING AT ASILOMAR EXTRA NIGHTS
We welcome and encourage you to stay at Asilomar the night before program start, Tuesday, July 19 as well as to stay the night of Sunday, July 24, for those of you scheduling travel on Monday, July 25.

 

STAYING ON PREMISES IS RECOMMENDED
While you have a choice as to where to stay during the program, we encourage you to stay on premise, at Asilomar, for an enhanced group experience — one that is focused and supportive. Staying on campus equally prevents our group from mingling outside in the community, an extra step in keeping the risk of contraction of Covid to a minimum.

COVID MANAGEMENT >> We are now reviewing current COVID rules and mandates and will be taking our registrants’safety very seriously. We realize that much could change between now and the summertime, and we will be taking any such changes into account. And, if for any reason there is another COVID shutdown that is out of our control, all fees will be refunded. At this point in time, we foresee asking that everyone shows proof of a negative COVID test, preferably taken within 24-48 hours of program start.

 

MAY WE BRING A PARTNER WITH US WHO IS NOT ATTENDING THE COURSE?
You may invite your partner to come and enjoy Asilomar with you while you take the course for the five days scheduled. We ask that you inform your companion that they cannot attend any part of the program with you, and that you will be rather preoccupied during the days of the program. We ask that you do not book into the triple or quad rooms if you are bringing a companion with you, but to only reserve the double room, for just you and your partner to share.

 

LOGISTICS  AND TRAVEL >>
Asilomar is a retreat center located right on the ocean in Pacific Grove, CA. Asilomar does not provide its own shuttle service to and from the various airports. Some of you may choose to fly in to Monterey Airport, some of you into San Jose International, and some of you into San Francisco International Airport. In each case, you will need to either rent a car or take an UBER or LYFT to Asilomar Conference Grounds in order to get to Asilomar from whichever airport you’ve chosen.

 

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to email us.

 

We are so looking forward to taking our students through Module 5 this summer. While it’s been an extraordinary couple of years conducting programs online, allowing us to gather together from all corners and cultures of the world, there is no replacement for the benefits of learning together, side-by-side, sharing and supporting and building the kind of camaraderie that only comes from face-to-face personal interaction.

What is Our Capacity?

Posted by on Dec 4, 2020 in Blog, Featured | 0 comments

What is Our Capacity?

“Capacity” for staying present to what determines how integration can occur through witnessing the enactment of the third force of creation: The reconciling force.

The receptive force of creation (the first force), and reactive force of creation (the second force), are balanced and intrinsically connected by a third force of creation called the reconciling force.

Overall, we are receiving a multitude of impressions per millisecond, yet, we can only perceive a limited number of them in our conscious awareness. There is a hierarchy in the lenses of perception in the brain structure, determining which impressions are given priority. Fortunately, whoever or whatever created us knew what they were doing.

The first impression prioritized by the brain is the need for survival, the somatic or” felt sense” lens of perception is how the impression regarding our safety and state of well-being arrives in the subcortical aspect of our brain and the automatic reaction via the survival reflexes is generated. What this means is that these processes do not actually require our awareness, they are running in the background subconsciously or unconsciously, so to speak.

For instance, it doesn’t require conscious awareness to breathe, for our heart to beat, or for our bodies to regulate our moment-to-moment survival needs. The nervous system can only conduct a limited “charge” before our defense structure, including our adaptive strategies, comes into action, with the aim being to protect the integrity of our physical reality. Our defense structure walls off the charge and keeps it contained to a limited area within our bodies. This occurs in lieu of it being able to continue to run its course fully when it is perceived as overwhelming and as such, something that may short circuit the nervous system.

The Body is the Resource…

The Body is the Resource…

Everything created and manifested contains a blueprint of the primal source of all things. Deeply imbedded in all material substances is the origin and the energetic presence of the unmanifested, unconditioned reality.

How can it (the unconditioned reality) ever be separate and divided, when it is the very raw essence of all things?

Many spiritual disciplines have body-based practices to bring us back home from being attached to a conditioned reality of two opposites profoundly experienced as separate parts and opposing in nature to something much more subtle and profound, easily overlooked and that which takes us into our undivided nature. We say how can you be both? This makes logical sense to anyone who uses their ordinary mind, their mental processes. You are either good or bad, away or present, here or there, sick or healthy, old or young… From a space-time continuum, this is partially true, and beyond time and space reality this all collapses and becomes one into something different from the unifying as the two opposites. Our body has access to these direct experiences through our subtle centers, which are already fully coded with the experience of an unconditioned self. (more…)

Why Do We Resist the Hurt?

Why Do We Resist the Hurt?

The obstacles to healing are the same as the obstacles to prayer or contemplation. The body gives us access to the truth of the present state of ​our physical reality. The body lets us know what is going on, and it does this through a process called, “awareness,” a process that connects us with the felt-sense in the body, which is like tuning in to a particular sensory language.

Often, this kind of awareness process is not congruent with what we tell ourselves and hide fro ourselves as our true state of well-being. Across our years growing up and over time, we learn how to adapt around ourselves and literally bypass all sorts of uncomfortable feelings that attempt to flow through the body, for the sake of survival and functioning.

When a Life Experience is Not Metabolized…

When a Life Experience is Not Metabolized…

Any life experience too overwhelming for the capacity in our nervous system will be responded to by containing the charge and walling this charge off from affecting the nervous system as a whole, as a way of preventing it from short circuiting. This is a highly intelligent response, prioritizing survival needs in relationship to secondary needs. We need to survive first before we can reflect and inquire into our lives.

By the time we are adults, many undercover energy pockets have been created in our physical bodies. Even though these can go for a long time unnoticed. These will eventually come to the surface when the cost to maintain them becomes greater, as the pattern requires more and more energy to sustain themselves. Especially over time, when the pattern continues to get reinforced by subsequent experiences. An accumulative effect that adds to the contained charge resulting in each life experience being only partially processed. (more…)

Understanding the Connections

Understanding the Connections

It is apparent to most of us, upon close observation, that everything is interconnected and dependent on one another. Recent neuroscience and epigenetics shows that there is a way that information is translated somehow when there is a need or attention is placed towards a desired function in the physical structure. We are calling this “gene expression.”

This is a secondary element, in addition to the genetic make-up, for a gene to come to full expression. The body is always looking for correcting and balancing, nurturing and eliminating, activating and passifying for an optimally functioning organism. These processes are subcortical in nature and are part of the brainstem, reptilian brain, and partly limbic organization in the hind and midbrain.The human being is born the most vulnerable and dependent of all creatures for the longest time and in need of proper care and nurturing by its primary caregiver, which is usually the mother. The initial connection between caregiver and child is called attachment bonding and is important for the experience of safety and well-being and brain development, all accomplished through what’s called “secure attachment.” (more…)
