An Online Workshop introducing three simple techniques rooted in anthroposophy for practical applications.
- First, we will work with the Planetary Parliament to create a safe, collaborative space. Using the planets as guides, we will work together to ensure that we stay within our time constraints, that everyone feels safe to ask questions and share, and that all the logistical functions of a meeting are carried by the group as a whole. The purpose of using this is to show you how one person does not have to hold all these functions to run a meeting, the group can work together harmoniously to do this.
- We will then work through a guided meditation, Logic of the Heart. This meditation is extremely effective for balancing sensory discomfort, overwhelm, sticky emotions, and obsessive thoughts. You don’t have to name your sensation or feeling or thought, and you don’t have to share or know what the circumstances are that led to your sensation or feeling or thought. This meditation utilizes multi-sensory imagination to work with the underlying soul substances of sensations, thoughts, or feelings. The purpose of doing this meditation is to give you a tool that you can use to come to a state of inner peace.
- Once we have this tool to come to a place of inner peace, we will dive into kinesiology testing. This is a method of connecting to spiritual beings or cosmic energy to make decisions in harmony with the world we live in. You can use any spiritual school for working with these beings or energy forms, all are welcome. If you’re more comfortable thinking about cosmic energy, that also works and is welcome. The purpose of learning kinesiology testing is to give you a tool for making decisions in collaboration with the spiritual influences that we usually ignore but which have a large impact on our lives, whether we’re conscious of that or not.
I began using kinesiology testing when I was a toddler, but I’d noticed that when I was emotionally distressed, I wasn’t open to understanding the information I was receiving. This is why I’m including Logic of the Heart first because that meditation allows you to be open to deeply hearing the spiritual beings or cosmic energy that you’ve connected to. Sometimes they don’t tell you what you want to hear, and having Logic of the Heart as a practice in your toolbox means you have a concrete method for separating from your emotional or intellectual reactions so you can make a decision from a neutral empathic place.
