Masterclasses 2017

Growing Up the Mind - The Art of Changing Consciousness in accordance with the Will.       BOOKING CLOSED

with Dr. Serena Roney-Dougal

March 17th - 19th 2017

Warwickshire

Friday evening talk, and weekend workshop

One aspect of the so-called Aquarian Age appears to be a profound shift in conscious awareness. In general, as far as psychic awareness is concerned, we are slowly developing from a point of unconscious competence through conscious incompetence to try and attain conscious competence.

This weekend we will learn how to open up to and become aware of our personal subconscious and the Collective Unconscious using both Western and Eastern techniques. This linking of the conscious with the subconscious is vital for us all to learn at this time. We will explore a variety of techniques (yoga nidhra, pathworking and visualization) that help us to exercise our mental muscles so that we develop concentration, focus and awareness. With these we will do some basic psi awareness so as to teach our minds to consciously be aware of subliminal information! Anyone who is interested in dowsing will find these exercises extremely helpful, as they are basic to all methods of spiritual development.
