Seven Notes of Consciousness– A one day Telos workshop
On Sunday, April 24th 2011, Chennai
"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.
Instead of learning about consciousness as ideas we will be exploring them as experience through body work so that we can know their movements in our everyday life and thus
learn to master them.
We will also be using simple methods to map each state of consciousness so that we can find out which is well developed and which is yet to be developed.
We will also explore simple techniques that can help in transforming problems related to each state of consciousness.
