Administrator, 5.48pm, 4th Jan 2011

"The condition in which men live upon earth is the result of their state of consciousness. To want to change the conditions without changing the consciousness is vain chimera."

(from the Works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother)

Telos (www.telos.org.in) maps Evolving Consciousness in us and its different states that animate our every day life. All our actions spring forth from different states of consciousness that play through our instrumental nature. An intimate experiential knowledge of these states of consciousness is an essential condition for self mastery and therefore mastery over what is happening in our lives.

In this workshop you will be exploring the following:

·  The Silent Zone
This is an essential condition required to explore the finer movements of consciousness; it is a silent, relaxed yet a highly alert state of being; it is an inner poise of stillness and silence, a ground upon which all other movements takes place. There will be guided process by which the Silent Zone is arrived at.

·  The States of Consciousness
After establishing the Silent Zone, on that ground we will explore experientially many different states of consciousness so that you get an understanding of these states and their characteristic inner movements in relation with outer situations.

·   The Inner Guide
There is an inner guide within each individual but it is veiled by the flux of movements on the surface levels of our being. By establishing the Silent Zone and exploring the States of Consciousness, we will learn to identify the finest inner movements coming from the inner guide which is the master key to our evolutionary unfolding. A movement which has spontaneous affinity towards all that are true, good and beautiful.
