Shamanic Ceremonies: New Moon

Jordi Lopez

New Moon Ceremonies
We meditate on the full moon as Mother of Creation; in the new moon we honor Her in Her Maiden aspect. The new moon is a time of regeneration, renewal, creativity, hope, new beginnings, new projects, new relationships, rebirth and liberation. The new moon phase is an optimal time for planning and seeding your intentions. Seedlings need a period of gestation before they break through the soil and reach for the sunlight. This is also true for our ideas and our desires. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.
 

Satsang Live Music Meditation

Prem Joshua

Satsang Live Music Meditation

Ambisonic Surround Sound

Ambisonic Surround Sound

Ambisonic Surround Sound  
        
“Ambisonics” is an emerging 3D audio technology. It works differently than other audio playback system in such that all the speakers work together to create an immersive sound-field, rather than sending individual channels of sound to each speaker. The result is a holophonic surround sound experiences where sound can be perceived  from any or all directions surrounding the listener, even between, where no actual speaker is present.

One key advantage of using an Ambisonic surround sound for health and wellness applications is the role of active listening vs. passive hearing. The ability to separate and move sound while simultaneously creating an immersive field of sound around the listener stimulates both passive and active listening in a unique way. In addition, Ambisonic audio delivers a far more organic and natural listening experience by satisfying the mechanisms used by the ear and brain to perceive sound in 3D space.  
 

Stop Dance

Prem Joshua

Stop Dance is a one-hour dance meditation, with improvised high energy music. The participants are guided to dance - allowing themselves to drown and let go into the music and rhythm. The dancer loses himself in the dance  - but with random shouts of STOP! during the dance stage. With the sudden STOP! the music halts, there is complete silence and the dancer freezes in whatever movement and position he is in - allowing all the energy that is built up during the dance to travel inwards. Again the music starts...

Shamanic Fire Ceremonies

Jordi Lopez

Shamanic Fire Ceremonies

For Releasing, Cleansing, And Balancing

Shamans perform fire ceremonies for releasing, cleansing and balancing. Fire ceremonies are essential to purifying the body, spirit and heart, and can be used for healing and creating fruition in our lives.

The fire is an ideal place to re-connect to your Oneness with the Universe. By honoring Pachamama (Mother Earth), Great Spirit, the Angelic light Being, and those who came before us and will come after us, you will re-orient yourself as to your true place in the Universe.

We bring an offering to the fire as a gift. It is something that is made from nature that is burnable - a stick, flower, pinecone, etc. Spend some time with the item, and with your intention, blow into the offering whatever you want to release, heal, or bring into your life. When you approach the fire, say a prayer of gratitude and make your offering.

Through a fire ceremony, energy bound in old ways can be freed to move in a new direction. We symbolically release something that no longer serves a useful purpose, and claim the energy we invest in that old behavior pattern for a new purpose.

Marja Ruijterman

During this workshop, we will search for the gurus in our lives. Which might surprise you, as there are many gurus around us, more “common place” than Krisnamurti or Osho. Who are they and how can we recognize them? But more importantly: what can we do with them? In this workshop, we will search for the guru in ourself, as we are wiser than we think. Everyone will get the opportunity to experience themselves as a guru, in the guru chair. The goal, of course, is to learn that you can always, at any given moment, call up the wise person in yourself. Which is more simple than you think!

De Omarming Van Het Compassievolle Hart

Juno Burger

De Omarming Van Het Compassievolle Hart (‘Embracing The Compassionate Heart’)

Contrary to the mind, which takes everything personally and wants to fix things, your heart has the unique power to experience life the way it is in the moment and let it be complete at the same time. This is embracing the compassionate heart; without fear, judgement or denial, life is literally and figuratively encompassed. By being ‘on’ and experiencing life, you will create a change which will lead to freedom!

De Stille Kracht Van Gedachten

Marja Ruijterman

De Stille Kracht Van Gedachten (‘The Silent Power Of Thoughts’)
Our brain is full of negative thoughts. Space which you could use more efficiently and comfortably. We are all able to create rest in our mind. That way, we can enjoy life more and make better choices. We get a clearer overview and a healthier feeling of self worth, which in turn causes us to feel more equal to others and create a sense of calm, consent and relaxedness. Changing our mindset is not as difficult as we often think. In this workshop, Marja explains how you can do it. And puts it into practice right away, so that you experience the effects yourself.

With some practical exercises, you will learn how you can function from flow easier in both meditation exercises and daily life.
 

Moments of Insight, Moments of Freedom

Rob Brandsma

Introduction to the Liberating Power of Mindfulness Practice
This workshop discusses the basic principles of mindfulness and vipassana meditation: insight, the possibility to make conscious choice (and thus freedom) comes freely as soon as you take the time to stop ‘doing’ and start looking inwards. Then you will see how your attention is inclined to identify itself with wild thoughts and how those thoughts seem to become reality. However, at the same time you notice this, you will also become aware of the entire process, the identification is let go. There is freedom. During the introduction it will become clear that this is the essence of the message of the Buddha.
We will practice this by means of guided breathing meditation where the experiences of the participants will be indicated in this way.

Shifting Perception – Satsang

Hans Laurentius

Shifting Perception – Satsang with Hans Laurentius 
The emphasis during this satsang will be on shifting perception from identification to pure awareness. It is possible to learn how to shift from conditioned responses to an open state from which one can meet emotions and convictions instead of avoiding, denying or fighting them. Questions may be put, the answers will not be just theoretical, but practical and aimed towards experience rather than philosophy. Change in attitude towards convictions and emotional energy can create a radical change in your outlook on life in all its aspects. Consciousness never fights or denies anything, it just experiences it completely. You are consciousness, and you are only conditioned to avoid, fight or deny what is. This conditioning can be removed or dissolved. Want to see and feel how? Be welcome! 

Spoedcursus Verlichting

Tijn Touber

Visualisatie Reis

After this meditation there is the opportunity to translate your inspiration and subtle perceptions into clear and practical understandings. Willemijn will also share her personal experiences about how she became aware of the unseen world and how communication between different levels and spirits is possible. You might find understanding and maybe some recognition in her story and she will give suggestions how to deal with your own intuition and healing talents. By sharing these experiences you might find that your limiting thought patterns or fears about these subjects can dissolve, whereby you can make a deeper contact with your own inner source of wisdom and peace.

The "less is more" idea is very much applicable to this new style. You could say it's Feng Shui for guitar-players...

De Wildeman: Van Jongen Naar Man

Ton van der Kroon

De Wildeman: Van Jongen Naar Man ('The Savage: From Boy To Man')
To be a man… what does that actually mean? In ancient cultures, boys were initiated from puberty by shamans of their tribe, to take up their role as an adult male in the community. With it, they received a new name and knew by having visions what their task in life was. In this era, these things are more complicated: what is your destiny in a world where everything is possible?
