INNOVATIVE MEDITATION ENTRAINMENT
Gradually, one's mastery in concentration extends from the primal atom to the greatest magnitude. Just as the naturally pure crystal assumes shapes and colors of objects placed near it, so the Yogi's mind, with its totally weakened modifications, becomes clear and balanced and attains the state devoid of differentation between knower, knowable and knowledge.
This culmination of meditation is samadhi.
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Translation by Satchidananda
The samadhi (or jhana) states are best understood as the foundational states of consciousness, the essences of mind. As such, all forms of samadhi are already present, awaiting one’s discovery. In this light, the meditative quest can be understood as the process of quieting the mind to finer and finer degrees, progressively revealing its true nature.
Meditative traditions emphasise the depth of purification intrinsic to the samadhi states - it is here where meditation and healing converge. As one develop’s presence - being in the here and now - the energy field becomes more orderly, or coherent. The samadhi states describe highly coherent states of the energy system which produce both extraordinary experience and profound healing.
Currently, there is much familiarity with the concept of brainwave entrainment - auditory based, frequency specific induction of various states of consciousness that correspond with neural activity. Similarly, the samadhi states can be developed through entrainment, as they too are frequency-specific states of consciousness with correspondent structures in the energetic anatomy. This is a unique approach to cultivating these advanced meditation states.
This workshop presents an innovative method to access the samadhi states. We will entrain to these seven levels of samadhi in sequence:
Rupa Jhana’s (material)
1 - Pleasure, rapture
2 - Rapture, unification of mind
3 - Unification of mind, equanimity
4 - Equanimity, serenity of awareness
Arrupa Jhana’s (immaterial)
5 - Infinite space
6 - Infinite consciousness
7 - Nothingness
Everyone will have a different experience of these entrainments. The workshop is meant as a 'taster' and we’re not suggesting you will clearly experience the states described above.
If you wish to explore the samadhi states further we've developed a downloadable training called “Samadhi Entrainment”
for which this event acts as the perfect taster!
This event is held online as a live teleconference. No 'active' participation is required, just connect, lie back and relax!
