Event description

Description

For the entire month of September, Mind on the Matter and IKG will host Saturday workshops. Each Saturday a different topic of what is called “parapsychology” will be explored and made practical. Participants will leave knowing how to develop these concepts into abilities they can improve upon with consistent practice. Workshops will be held from 3pm to 5pm at the Thurgood Marsall Building.

September 2nd – Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) and Knowing

The ancients had a very different perspective of the nature of knowledge than what we, as a collective society, currently have. Their understanding of the potential sources of knowledge included the unconscious mind and other “imperceptible” sources; an understanding that leads to access to more knowledge and understanding because of the receptiveness to other sources. In other words, by being aware of an unconscious and/or subtle source of knowledge, you make yourself more sensitive to it’s potential presence, thereby increasing the likelihood that you will actually perceive what is there, when it’s there. In common terms, ESP includes abilities, concepts and theories related to psychic abilities, telekinesis, clairvoyance, telepathy, etc.

September 9th – Meditation and Breath Control

Focusing and calming the mind are essential to mastering any form of increased mental awareness and ability. It’s a disciplining similar to a physical exercise regimen, except it is on the mental plain, enhancing your mental traits and characteristics, while also developing new ones. At the core of this and almost every other exercise done correctly is the ability to master and control your breathing, in order to breath intentionally, thereby harnessing the power of the breath. In this workshop we will explore various breathing and meditation techniques and learn to use them for various purposes.

September 16th – Creative Visualization and Symbolism

Meditation as a tri-fold process, involves verbal thought control, breathing, and creative visualization. Creative visualization helps to focus your intention and will on whatever mental picture is being held in your unconscious as well as conscious mind. The beautiful thing about creative visualization is that is relatively easy to program and, according to many practitioners, yields great returns on the time spent practicing. Creative Visualization can be achieved via imagination or through the use of external cues and tools (i.e., vision boards).

September 23rd – Insight and Intuition

Two of the most sought after mental abilities, insight and intuition provide the means of knowing information more efficiently than through the use of intellectual exercises. Intentionally developing your ability to gain insight and to be increasingly more receptive to subtle symbolism will provide you advantage in most situations. You will know it’s going to rain before the clouds gather, or know when that argument is about to pop off, so you distance yourself. Most get glimpses of this to one degree or another; the benefit is greatest when it is consistently being applied correctly.

September 30th – Movement

Movement is essential to all life. It is one of the few characteristics that is shared by all things alive. When the movement stops, we tend to say something has “died.” In this workshop, we will learn various aspects of movement including Qi Gong, Yoga, Dance, Capoeira, etc. The power of music will also be explored within the context of its ability to generate movement. Participants will have the option of having a personalized meditation created for their specific needs.

Handouts and web-based links will be shared.
