This highly interactive and experiential programme was organised by NAMAH, the Journal of Integral Health, from the 4th to the 9th September, 2023 with an aspiration to facilitate the journey of management and reversal of auto-immune diseases by restoring immune intelligence, by truly understanding and applying a consciousness-based approach in our daily routine. About 35 people registered for this event.
On the first day, the foundation for healing was laid by the speaker very lovingly by consciously shifting the participants’ relationship with the body. The key idea that ‘we have to have a very intimate relationship with each organ, just like loving a child for its own sake’, was truly eye- opening. He also helped in understanding that the physical body is a conscious being, capable of knowing how to function and how to respond to each stimulus. It is fully receptive to compassion and the opposite. The speaker wonderfully held the space for the Presence to guide the process of deep relaxation and to consciously connect with each organ and take an affirmation that they are deeply loved and cared for. The key message that true healing is not just reversal of illness but raising the consciousness of the body so that it becomes resilient to future challenges.
On the second day, the session started with a deep relaxation followed by re-connecting with Mother Earth and surrendering all mental and physical pain. It was immensely healing and a sense of being relieved ensued. A most comprehensive daily routine was shared with insights and significance of each step. Connecting to the sun and absorbing prana; connecting to the earth, Solar water; a high pranic meal plan; sleeping with a higher state of consciousness were the initiatives explained thoroughly by the facilitator in context to the questions and challenges held by the participants. Suggestions on consulting a diabetologist (if diabetic) during the practice of the routine to monitor the required dose and to strictly avoid a list of foods that are not healing in nature, helped in establishing clarity in the practical aspects.
On the third day, as a continuum of the sources of energy (the consciousness in which the food is consumed) being discussed, a great insight of deriving energy from prana was demonstrated through practical pranic exercises for neck, spine and upper limbs. The key foundation of pranic exercises was explained herewith: perfection of the movement, synchronising with the breath and experiencing the change happening within the cells.
On the fourth day, guided pranic exercises for the lower limbs helped to observe how consciously breathing in prana through the muscles and chakras, brought in a sense of lightness and well-being instantly. As the most important step in healing, the facilitator had very consciously held space and invoked the Divine Grace and a series of steps to surrender the physical body, mind and ego as an offering, which was truly revealing the loving Presence in its full glory. We exist at different levels, the physical, mental, vital, etc. All the restlessness is only in the surface mind. If we go deeper, we have a deeper self that is in touch with the vast Silent Infinity. The above was brought out very experientially by the facilitator.
On the fifth day, in context to the questions asked by participants, deeper insights on sleep, gut health, self-compassion, self-pity, doubts and fear were given. Following which, a guided breathing through the chakras was held. The speaker helped in moving from the Muladhara to the heart and then deep into the cave of heart, to the psychic being. As the silence deepened, the facilitator held space for deep a surrender and protection by the Divine Grace.
On the final day, the facilitator summarised the process of healing with its deeper essence. After a sharing circle from the participants, questions were answered in the collective. Deeper insights on purpose-based living, surrender, the all-pervading consciousness, self-giving and progress were discussed. The sessions brought a deep shift within during the process and also the silence pervaded throughout the day. The presence held by the facilitator and the genuine intention to guide one-on-one towards healing was highly appreciated.
