Conference session

The Simple Means of Spiritual Experiences

Introduction in the Practice of The State of Presence

We create our identity from what we can perceive of Reality. Referring to a world of forms, creates a linear identity, known as ego. “I’m searching for myself” is the standard message of the modern Consciousness explorer, the one who tries to perceive beyond the form. It is the purest expression of duality. The dual perception and the inner breaking point.

Consciousness inflects Perception. The deeper we perceive the Reality, the larger Consciousness becomes. The measure with which we perceive the Reality, depends on our level of Consciousness. In the history of Humanity there were always “Technologies of the Sacred” that enlarge the perception and give access to a deeper living of Reality. In the centre of any expansion of consciousness there is the State of Presence.

This is an invitation to Centering, Attention and Openness and it refers to the attitude. The State of Presence opens the doors of perception and consciousness. It is the soul foundation of any experience of enlarged state of consciousness.
This Journey is an introduction in the simple technology of Presence. Its goal is to explore a new magnitude of perception and to connect with the most dense and refined dimensions of Being. The purpose of this openness, towards different dimensions of the Consciousness’s Body, is to demonstrate that Consciousness Expansion is accessible to anyone who’s willing to live it. Not long ago the challenge was the access to this kind of states. Nowadays the challenge is to incorporate those discoveries to the everyday life.

The benefits of Practicing The State of Presence are enormous and have impact on all aspects of life. It relaxes the physical body, giving it back its natural fluidity and setting away fatigue or pain. It calls to put us back into contact with the energetic dimension of Being. It offers ways to administrate difficult emotional and mental contents and it is a very effective way to escape from the compulsive labyrinth of the mind. It transforms the way we relate to ourselves and with others, it opens the gates to intuition and self trust, of authenticity and free expression. And last, but not least, it is the gate to spiritual Vision.

The Practice of Conscious Breathing and The State of Presence represents the basic approach of the Inner Master School. Incorporating this Practice in the everyday life is a fast way to inner transformation, gives access to the truth within us and the truth about our true nature of Being, which transcends, by far, the dimension of forms. It is the way to regain the meaning of Life, the joy of living and the creativity. Thousands of people from all over the world use the simple means of spiritual living to enrich all areas of life.

This Journey’s goal is to open a Gate that you can use every time you will need it. It is an Inner Gate whose keys are:
- The Attention, modulated in a specific way,
- The Conscious Breathing
- An open Attitude which is always a choice.
