The next meditation evening will be on Monday 2 December 2013 from 18.30 till 20.00.
We will see what we can learn from our body: A Lot!
My organs can be my life-spiritual teachers. They can teach me a profound wisdom. They can be a trustful guide in my daily life and even an example of inner development. But how to approach them?
How to become receptive to their messages? By using some specific meditations we will be able to experience the body's wisdom. We will meditate on picture of the perfect body, in which each part is in harmony with the other parts and with the whole.
By meditating this models we will understand our role as rider, we will be in better state to take our true role towards the body: Being the rider who can give direction to life forces…
The physical body is a miracle that we usually ignore. As I walk, speak, work, look around, drink my coffee, walk outside a cold winter day or a hot summer day...;my blood stays constantly at 37 degrees! How is that possible? Who is regulating this? Do I do it unconsciously or is it ''Nature'' doing it. But what is nature then?
Whatever activity I'm busy with, my body is functioning. Even more: Whatever aggression I send to him, in term of bad food, coffee, stress, angriness, fears, cold, warmth, negative thinking...;my body holds its integrity as good as it can, every moment, day and night, from conception to death!;
We take this daily miracle for granted until it breaks into pain or sickness. We start them to pay attention to some part of it, the painful parts.
But what about honouring this beauty happening in us every single moment of the day?
I invite you for a little journey into this unseen daily miracle. I invite you to discover what your body is doing for you, every moment of the day, every moment of the night, every step you do.
Your body is ready any moment to allow you to express your being into the physical world. Just think only one moment about all the functions, blood circulation, nervous system, digestive system, glandular system...;all this systems being there, collaborating together and being ready to serve you!
By seeing this dedication of your own body towards yourself, don't you start to experience a bit of gratefulness? And with a growing awareness, doesn'tt this gratefulness just grow by itself?
Observing the complexity of a human body can be pretty overwhelming. That's the reason why we will make very little steps. From this complexity I've extracted some specific simple pictures as mean of meditation.
|We start next Monday with the element Air and the organ Lungs.

The King is sitting on the Throne in the middle of the room in the middle of the Tower in the middle of the Castle in the middle of the Kingdom. He sits and rules quietly the Kingdom. He needs this quietness to rules its kingdom in full wisdom.
Messengers are coming to Him from all parts of the Kingdom. Some are in charge of the food, others bring messages from all other places and others protect the Kingdom against invasions.
The King is Heaven on Earth and must not touch the Ground. If He moves from one place to another He has to be carried by servants in a special chair. If by accident he would touch the ground he would be killed: He would be beheaded and the servants who failed to carry him as well. The King must stay pure to rule its Kingdom in harmony, …or die! So was the Tradition a long long time ago.
The Heart is sitting on the diaphragm, inside the pericardium, inside the pleura in the middle part of the body. He's beating regularly and constantly. Plasma full of food, red cells bringing news from the all body, whites cells defending it are received and send again through the all body by the constant Heart…
You like the story?... This gives a little taste of the coming course in September called: Old wisdom and modern physiology.
More information comes after holiday, mid Augustus. It will be a course in 7 parts about this fascinating inner world of the body.
I wish you all a very good summer. (Summer is the season the Heart, of course!)
Crisis has good sides! Yes you know, it can bring some more consciousness into the world etc…But I’m speaking about something out of our daily life: Money and fear of not having enough money in the future.
Yesterday evening I’ve seen a documentary on TV about poverty in the US and here we are: I wake up full of fears. What would happen with no money anymore? What if I cannot pay my rent anymore? What if I find myself on the streets?
I don’t know if you recognize those moments but when this fear comes, don’t lose the opportunity to meet it: You can discover some really interesting forces behind.
We all have pictures of what we don’t want to experience. Those experiences are very often the ones we in fact need the most for our self-development. To fear some experiences makes us pretty unfree. If through this world crisis you wake up sometimes in deep fear, don’t lose the opportunity: Meet them and work them out!
I find ‘’the work’’ of Byron Katie one of the most effective methods to investigate and change our inner beliefs. Having made a workshop with her some years ago, it is a tool I regularly use for myself or with clients. The basis is beautiful: you have the answers, you have the wisdom within. To discover it dare to meet the burdens of your life and investigate them. That’s really magic what can be discovered!
In my practice I see how money’s fear is often connected with existential fears which affect the Kidney’s functions. They get somehow stuck and often you get low back problems or constipation because tension in the kidneys easily provokes tensions in the intestines. (Be careful, I’m not saying that all low back problems or constipations are connected with existential fears!). Combining the self-investigation work of Byron Katie with shiatsu treatment can really bring (little?) miracles and change lives!
Meeting those fears is a process which actually drives us towards a more real perception: We can meet a deep feeling of being supported. Even if we don’t get exactly by what, we can somehow feel that life supports us at every single moment. We get in touch with a deeper and truer dimension of life. We also get to see that this support just doesn’t come in the way we think it ‘’should’’ come. Life has its own logic which we can accept or refuse, even if we don’t really understand it.
In this deep new connection to life, there is no fear any more. No separation any more but connection and trust. Trust that your very life is the perfect one for you at that moment. That will really release a lot of stress: Not understanding but deeply trusting, deeply feeling supported.
It doesn’t mean that there is nothing to do about your money stuff, it means that you will not act out of fear any more. The difference is easy to experience: Things done out of fear have this colour of ‘’I must’ ’I have to’’, it feels really heavy. Action out of freedom gives this feeling that they almost happen by themselves. Even if you are active in them, you don’t get the feeling to make any big effort. You just do it because you get the inner impulse to do it. You follow your nature. It doesn’t cost you energy but generates a creative movement.
But this is the result of a process that you have to do. To read that and think ‘’of course I know all that stuff’’ doesn’t bring any change. If you experience fears, steps can be made, and you are the one!
Big news: Shiatsu in the tower of the Castle!
I will give shiatsu sessions at the Ashtanga yoga centrum in The Hague on Saturday’s mornings.
It is a beautiful art deco place. You can have a drink in the café downstairs.
Location: Ashtanga Den Haag
Prins Hendrikplein 14
For reservation contact me at my personal number: 070 402 39 42 or via mail.
Meditation on Monday at 18.30. Every two weeks we meet for some spiritual studies and meditations. You’re welcome to step in every moment!
Courses: Wisdom of my organs: In September I will give a course about the wisdom of my organ system. How can I relate ordinary physiology with the energetic and psychological aspects of my organs. I let you know more about it in a coming newsletter.
To end this letter I remind to all clients that you can always use the vouchers billow to send someone and get both a free session: It is a system which works good because everybody gets happy with it!
In the mist of winter,
let nature take a rest
and let your just renewed inner flame grow.
Nourish it with new impulses,
new hopes and new purposes.
Everything is possible
in the laboratory of your Mind.
Nourish your dreams
till they sink into your Heart and Hands
and become your actions
and your Life.

A new child is born!
Does it make sense for you?
Behind visiting family, having a good meal, giving presents, is there anything more?
Are you feeling any urge for something more?
Do you feel inside that something deeper is going on than only outside events?
Are you eager for meaning, for what is true, important and vital for you?
What’s the meaning for you of ‘’a new child is born’’?
Is there any child right here, right now, inside you, just born?
Whole nature invites us to inner investigation. To take a pause, sit down, consider our own life and ask questions: where is the light which enlightens me inside?
The light which would give me warmth, direction and centre?
This time of the year invites us to introspection. Introspection invites us to see what satisfies us in our life and what does not. Invites us to see what we should better let go and what we could let grow.
So look inside. In the quietness of the night, take a rest and look. And let appear, in the middle of this looking, the seeds of your deepest wishes. Here is the flame, here is the light. Discover it, look at it and simply decide to give it the water of your attention. Focus on those seeds, they will grow, as a new child in you.
…And some more personal news, but I can not resist: A new child is indeed born! This beautiful baby is my daughter Ilana Giulia, born on 7 December 2012, coming from the stars to teach me that life is love and love is l
I hope that you can enjoy the energy of those days. We can experience a typical Milt energy: A very soft and balancing energy. It represents the balance between all the elements and gives an experience of deep and calm harmony. Ideal temperature, soft wind on the skin… It is like a pause between the expanding summer and the contraction of winter. A kind of magic pause, a glimpse of paradise. How would it be if we could all the time experience an harmonious flow between us and the world? It is good to have those reminder moments given so generously by Nature. For other times, when Nature starts to decay, we can decide to cultivate those qualities in ourselves. We can still appreciate all what is given through Nature, but also learn to depend less on it: Let’s cultivate our inner garden through meditation, exercises like yoga,do-in, or shiatsu!
Coming back from her first school day, my daughter said to me: ''This year we will speak about animals. For example about monkeys. Some people beleive that we come out of monkeys, other people think that we come from God, and you dad, what do you think?''
Good question indeed!
I hope that the following courses will contribute to this man/chimp-question:

La nature nous comble aujourd’hui de sa plénitude. Les arbres éblouissants, le soleil, le ciel et les nuages, tout semble à son maximum. Tout semble donner, donner, donner, sans but autre que d’être là et faire don de sa présence.
Une joie d’être rayonne de chaque chose.
C’est un petit miracle que je puisse ressentir et partager cette simple joie. Elle est autour de moi et en moi. Tout vibre de cette joie d’exister et quelque chose en moi vibre à l’unisson.
Je suis frappé par la similitude d’une simple promenade par une belle journée harmonieuse et les sensations que peut procurer une séance de shiatsu.
L’énergie qui vibre me relie à chaque chose et me procure un bien être profond.
N’est-ce pas ce que nous recherchons tous, ce sens de l’harmonie ?
Le but d’une thérapie est de le favoriser.
Quand notre rapport au monde n’est plus obscurci par les émotions, les obsessions, les jugements, ces petits miracles quotidiens deviennent possibles. C’est ce qu’essaie d’atteindre un traitement: Aider à éclaircir les ciels obscurs afin que ces moments d’être pur puissent briller et nous redonner un calme sourire.

I proudly present Klaartje and Mikkel, the two new guest in my house : 2 goldfishes ! It was a wish of my daughter. I didn't took it really serious but since they're here I keep staring at them like hypnotized ! So I started to look with the eyes of a phenomenologist : What does this animal say ? And of course it is like an all world starting to open its secrets. Once more I could see that the most obvious is the most difficult to see and the most speaking...
Just thinking that fishes have no neck. Trying to experience from inside having no neck. And being like as flying, in suspension in a element, out of gravity. What a contrast with our life’s, on legs to rise up against gravity, and turning our head around to watch the landscape ! How the fish stays closed to the element is swimming in. Like a fish in water is the saying. And indeed, you see them moving being almost the same of the water itself. No gravity, no legs, no arm to transform the surrounding. Just being there, in the movement itself of water. Being in such a perfect harmony that they even doesn't notice it ! And this strange form, so thin, which ask a constant movement to stay vertical, in perfect balance, day and night. They never close their eyes, they can not, they never withdraw from where they are, they never oppose any personal will to their experience : Quietness, deep alive quietness, welcome, Fishes !
According to Chinese medicine, water is the element of winter. The corresponding organs are the Kidneys. To celebrate them and to help to go through the winter I organize an evening ''meditating the Kidneys ''. It helps to get aware of those organs, to understand them better and to help life energy to flow there through knowledge and concentration.
It will be on Tuesday 24 January, at 18.30. (thus next week)
Each season I will do one evening with the organ corresponding to the season. It helps to go through the year more aware and more harmonious.
Also a special action to start the year : A first shiatsu session for €35,- ! Let it know to people around you. It is also for people who didn't came since at least 2 years. This action runs till end February.
I wish you a very good start of this year!
Merry Christmas !!!
For the ones who are happy to chair it with families, for the ones who are unhappy for the same reasons, for the ones who pretends to be unhappy and are not, and the other way arround, and for the ones who are sad and frustrated to be alone in this time of the year !
Whatever your situation, and beyond the hysterical buy buy buy, we also receive incredible rich images which resonate with our deepest being. No need to be a christian to absorb those images.
The Christmas tree being green when others trees have lost all leaves stands for eternal life. The life energy which just go on. Reminding the paradise state, where death doesn't exist.
Lighting some candles on this tree : Bringing light and warmth, which are psychic qualities, soul and spirit qualities. This simple image brings together natural life forces and inner soul world.
Christmas happens in the darkest days of the year, 3 days after the winter solstice. The birth of an inner light, in the middle of the dark. That's one of the stronger picture which can guide us through life. The nature doesn't nurture us like it does in summer, but in myself can arise a new light.
Joseph the carpenter can be seen as the thinker. The one who can think clear(head pole). Maria is the one who has purified all the will area, the desire (belly pole). Between clear head and purified desire get born Jesus the New Heart. It's in short an evolution image.
Jesus can not get born among the human's beings but in a stable, between Donkey and Os. It is to full among human's beings. In other worlds, the Ego takes all the place. So the new light comes in the instinctive animal realm : The donkey is stubborn (head pole)and can carry a charge very very long way. The Os works the earth( belly pole). Between earth and sky, in the most humble place can come the new light. Humility is balancing the ego organization.
It is one of those moment where you can put yourself in service of something bigger than yourself. Then growing from inside become possible.
They would be a lot more to say. It is just a beginning, hoping you will search for your own understanding. I wish you to be inspired, letting those beautiful helpful images resonate in you. There is so much more to discover. They touch our deep mysterious nature and are a call of self knowledge and development. A call to turn how attention towards love, the good stuff in us....

How to become the cause of your healing process ?
With the first cold of November I'm thinking on the story of Adam and Eva pushed out of paradise. During summer the Nature offers us all what it has to offer. Nowadays its energy withdraws and it is as if we was pushed out of its abundance. We have to learn to protect us against nature in order to keep us warm.
Buddha told us that desire was the origin of suffering, getting old and sickness. Loosing paradise is also loosing harmony. It is loosing health and becoming available for diseases. Desire would be the origin of all that perish. That's the apple story !
How to understand this relation between desire and sickness ? And does it help for my healing process ?
Without being the ''awaken one'' some aspects still stroke me:
When I want something, I want to reach something I have thought before. My purpose is limited with my understanding of the moment. By wanting to reach this purpose I reduce myself to that I want to reach. My will is orientated towards this specific purpose.
I create then time : Me being here and the purpose other there and between the effort to get there. I then succeed or fail to reach that goal and create fear to fail and stress. I've eaten the apple, I've failed in time. I've lost the harmony of paradise. My desire becoming fixed on one purpose, I also become more fixed, more solid: I lose my soul flexibility and become more physical, more earthy.
By creating time I've created disharmony. Disharmony leads to aging and sickness.
Observing the origin of sickness gives some view about recovering harmony and well being : If I want some profit from my actions, I'm in time, thus mortal. Expectation, desire creates disharmony.
Can I then act without expecting any specific profit? Can I just be dedicated to what I'm doing, without caring about what I will get from it or not?
Can I fully dedicate myself to what I'm doing ? Doesn't matter if what I'm doing now is to clean the dishes or speak with a friend or raise my child, can I just fully do it, without any double agenda ? It doesn't mean that nothing will come back to me, it means that I let go of any idea about what should come back to me as consequences of my action. I just do the best I can and let the universe free to give its own answer.
Doing with non-profit mind is creative mind. We can easy see how the world is sick of profit-mind and how urgent it is for us to develop an non-profit mind, a dedicated mind. Through doing that, we can be sure that we work on our own well being and that it brings something which is a necessity for the world nowadays. It is simple, it doesn't ask for big showing off action. It just ask for discrete every day self inquiry : Do I dedicate myself to what I'm doing or do I have a double agenda? Do I expect something from my doing or am I dedicated to my action?
Paradise is then not something to reach far in the future,it is available in every single little daily action.
Dedication gives inner well being because it simply correspond to our inner nature. It is a way to let our deeper Self express itself in our life. Learning to do that more and more is recovering our true Self, the one which provides us inner joy and health.

Today is Michäel's celebration.
Are you ready to fight the Dragon?
''What Dragon? Where Dragon? Do I have to believe those things?'' would you perhaps answer.
Every thing appearing in your life as an obstacle, anything bothering you may be your personal dragon. What gives you pain or any unpleasant feeling you would prefer not to experiment like: anger, fear, jealousy, sadness, hate...That’s all forms the dragon can take. Its is so clever and can be so difficult to grasp! Changing form all the time but one thing sure: Bothering you again and again and again!
''What's this now, To fight the Bad with the Good? Are we still in the time of the Crusades?''
No it is not this kind of fight!
Michäel represents courage and will power. It is a call to cultivate personal will power. But it is not the will we are used to:In the picture below you see that Michäel is hitting the Dragon in the eye. The eye stands for the senses. Close your eyes, close your senses and go inside!
Go into your inner cavern: Here is happening the fight! We are used to want something outside our-self and to make all our efforts to reach it. That's what we usually call personal power: A state of war to get something we want. Here happens something opposite: Sit down, close your eyes, take a rest and look what's going on inside. Here is the Dragon! Reverse your will to cultivate it!
It's kind of dark other there and you need the courage of Michäel : You need to be able to stay unmoved in the middle of the storm. That's what the gray armor expresses: The quality of equanimity. Find your center, find the one in you who can see without judging, fighting, manipulating. Michäel fights without fighting, that's the secret!
By connecting your emotions with equanimity you connect to life's powers which was lying in the depth of your unconscious. Then appears a other aspect of the Dragon. It personifies the 4 powers supporting all life, the 4 elements: Fire out of the mouth of the Dragon, Air being represented by the wings, Water by the body in form of a snake (form of flowing water), and Earth being the feet. Here we connect also to the oriental meaning of the Dragon, life power, energy.
Michäel is bringing order and balance into life's powers through consciousness. The Michäel in you is bringing consciousness into the unconscious realm of natural life's forces. It is your quality of pure attention, you're ability of being, you're inner Silence, you're inner self healing power.
You're all life experience is changing. From narrow and fearful, it gets large and generous. When those natural's powers are in order around the center of your being, you deliver this woman figure, standing left in the picture, being attached to the Dragon. You deliver your Soul . A new life starts for you, based on the Soul, and not any more on the ego. You became able to love from your Soul, the real source of life.
Of course that's the aim and we don't have to do it all today! It is a step by step process. I have already fighted quiet lots of dragons in this life and if you want some help or guidance to fight yours, I 'm ready for it, and even, I love to assist others with their dragons! So if you want some help there, don't hesitate to contact me!
PS: You can also print this wonderful painting of Paollo Uccello (Firenze 1397-1475) and take some time to reflect on it. It is very impressive to see how painters of the Renaissance was aware of inner development! The title of the painting is ''St. Joris (or George) and the Dragon''. Joris was a Saint of the third century, who's was connected to Michäel 's impulses.
PPS: This text is my own view on Michäel's signification and doesn't pretend to be the only one possible. It is based on year's of helping myself and others with inner transformation and self healing process.

Dear Clients and friends,
Since some days we are in as perfect experience of ''Milt-energy''. According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the ''Indian summer'', the 2 or 3 weeks between summer and autumn corresponds to the Earth energy and the organ Milt and Stomach.
This inter-season is a very specific moment, where all energies are in balance. The temperature is not to warm and not to cold, we don't get blinded by a strong sun light (did we in Holland, I was away so I don't know!) but we still receive a beautiful light with lot of clarity. It is also a moment between the extrovert activities of summer and the going inside movement of autumn.
It is a good moment to take a little reflexion break before to rush into the working life. If you have been in holidays, you was outside your daily life, your daily patterns. Sometimes finding back the daily ''routine'' may give some heavy feelings.
The specific energy of this season can support you into finding more harmony in your life.
If you want to assist yourself more consciously, you can practice this:
Make a walk, feel this specific moment of the season and when you're back home take some time to sit and quietly consider all the components of your life. In this quiet look you can see how the different elements of your life speak to each other. Are they in harmony or are they fighting each other? Just look with no judgment, to get a clear information. The Milt energy also support the intellect, so make good use of it.
If you experience some disharmony, see it as a question life is asking to you: Can those elements get into harmony?
Ask the question but don't try to answer it!
Love the question for itself and...forget it! But stay alert in your daily life. Perhaps some words would cross your mind, or you would read something, or someone says you one thing which hits you...Some elements of answer will be given to you at the moment you expect the less. There are moments which are not under your control, that's why they can bring something new.
Those insights help you to know where to direct your attention if you want some improvements. They help your inner compass to orientate.
Wish you a good September start,
PS: I stay quiet general in the information I'm giving. I'm not trying to give TCM course, but to chair some experiences which I believe helpful. The main idea is that experiencing the move of the seasons consciously can have a great influence on our state of mind and emotional balance.
With a little awareness of those movements you can actually gain lot of inner changes. That's also a place Shiatsu is quiet powerful, by helping to harmonize your energy system with the energy of the season. If you want more information or to make an appointment, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. or by phone (0704023942).
Shiatsu, gravity and healing forces
What makes the pression of shiatsu so pleasant and so effective ?
One of the basic principle of shiatsu is to use gravity to apply pression. That means that the therapist doesn't use any personal will power to apply pression. In other words a shiatsu pressure is completely non-intrusive .
If the pression doesn't focused on any expected result. How comes then that it still works ?
According to Rudolf Steiner, if you would push on human body progressively with always more pression, the person would lose consciousness.
The normal state of being not here with our consciousness but still being alive is while we are sleeping. And what happens during sleep ? We get restored. That means that healing forces are at work while we are sleeping. When we get awake, we get conscious of our body again, and use it to think, feel and perform actions. Doing that we make the body tired. It needs to get restored; we feel tired and go to sleep. And so on.
So pushing on the body with no fixed purpose gives space to those forces to come into action. We could say that to push on a part of a meridian is like putting a local area into sleep and allowing healing forces which are usually working at night to come and work.
This short text gives an idea how just applying pression can have huge effects.
In the course I’m giving I try to transmit more understanding about those healing forces. If you have any interest you can contact me by clicking here.
Dear friends and clients,
The course ''Meditating physiology'' has started. That's a real challenge to extract from the complexity of the physiology some clear images which can be meditated. For the lungs it took 2 sessions to get there, but the result was rewarding: it became possible to have some personal inner experiences of some aspects of the lungs. It is fascinating to discover in a new way some traditional knowledge. For example the relation between the Lungs and the God Mercurius from the Greek mythology could obviously appear. It is diving from the limited form of the organ into a vast realm of inner experiences.
Next Tuesday we make a new step by meditating the Heart. I'm very exited about what we will discover! We will use drawing as well to help us to meet the Heart!
You can find more information’s by contacting me.
Liver time: Spring is according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M) the season on the Liver. I notice that in my practice I have to treat almost every session the Liver energy.
Liver is strong connected with food in the blood and blood circulation. It transforms food coming from the intestines, store it and send it via the blood to the parts of the body which needs it. If you want to do something you need forces into the muscles to perform the action. That's the job of the Liver to send the food (sugar for example) at that specific muscles. So is the Liver strong connected to action, concrete doing.
Think about the juice rising up into plants and trees and of the blood circulating in the body and you start to have a little idea of the connection between Liver and Spring.
Spring is also a very good time for cleaning the Liver with a Liver cure. For example with the cureof doc. Clark.
Les bons trucs de tonton Christophe:
If you notice that you have a negative image of yourself, instead of trying to change it, or manipulate it, or spending lot of energy to built a nice mask in front of it (yes, we all do that!), just go in front of a mirror, look into your eyes and just speak your conviction about yourself. For example ''I'm lazy''. Just look and wait and stay attentive about what happens in you. If you do it with enough care and attention, you will see that this conviction can not resist to the simple act of looking: It starts to move, draw back and slowly to reverse into some well being feeling.
Do all that with no expectation, learn to observe and follow what happens in you without interacting. The principle is simple, but to do it asks some subtlety in looking without interacting.
A group is starting in The Hague to train the perception of the formative forces being active in what we perceive. I will learn plenty of exercises to guide people from usual perception to more subtle perception. Doing that helps to develop a sense of deep connection with the world. It is actually an very practical spiritual way, rooted in our daily perception.
If you have any interest you can contact me or contact Frans Romeijn, who is giving the course.
Dear Clients and friends,
a new series of 4 meditations is coming:
Meditating and drawing the 4 elements,
Fire, Air, Water and Earth
4 evenings, one element per evening.
The meditation starts with observation and description of the element. From that we will make a drawing to put all what we have seen into one image. This image will be then support of our meditation. The meditation consists then in concentration on what have been seen to intensify the feelings experience. It creates an heart connection with the element.
The purpose of this process is to move from appearance into the forces behind appearance.
It gives a feeling of deep connection with the natural world.
It is very beautiful to do it especially at that time of the year, while every forces are rising so strongly, the warmth coming, the plants growing, the flower blossoming.

Hoping to see you soon,
Dear Clients and friends,
Next week starts the course “If my organs could speak''. Very few reactions came in and I have the naivety to believe that ''if they would really know what it is about already 100 persons would have phone!''. The course is all about how you can see the physiology as an expression of movements of the soul.
I'm so enthusiastic about this approach because it is (dis-)solving the duality head/body without denying the intellect. Like almost everybody of that time I experience very often that I’m to much in my head and would like to experience life itself instead of thinking about it! This method proposes steps to transform the dry intellect into life forces.
But, lets be true immediately, it ask some work!
Here we use physiology as a mean to build inner images of the life of the organs.
For example that the blood in the kidneys flows from the center to the periphery, and in the liver from the periphery to the center shows us a polarity in movements.
Movement is a language that the soul understands: all the day going from one feeling to an other, one thought to an other, from one impulse to an other.
In this course we go from fixed images of organs to images of their specific movements. And those images become support of meditation. Meditating those images has in return influences on the organs and on the soul state.
The intellect has been transcended into life forces..
This method is in complete harmony with the state of development we are nowadays. We also almost magically find back many knowledge of the old wisdom, but being rooted in our scientific knowledge, no ''master'' is needed.
