Mindfulness 2.0: Make your Meditation Become a Practice for Everyday Life


Mindfulness

I would like to share with my brothers and sisters, a newly-created online course called “Mindfulness 2.0”. As a natural progression from the Sarmoung Blog page where information is shared, I will interact with people directly on the online course – an idea inspired by my brothers Göran Nilsson, Ton van Dort and my sister, Sylvie Manley.

 

Why Mindfulness 2.0?

Because it’s not the Mindfulness limited only to reducing stress, anxiety and depression, but also a way to access our deeply-buried innate potential and get into direct touch with our intimate nature (our Essence). Also, it isn’t a Mindfulness based exclusively on meditation sittings, but a systematic approach based on several methods which include Zen practices, Gurdjieff’s methods of self-remembering, techniques of visualization (Note: not daydreaming or fantasizing, but an active, conscious, intentional use of the mind), and advanced techniques of emotional, physical and mental relaxation. Namely, practical tools (in video, mp3, scripts format) and a dynamic, individualized support through email and/or skype to help you to gain the most from this course, until it becomes a life skill.

 

What you will get from this course?

  1. Understanding Meditation: the who, what, how, why, when of meditation; we’ll “demystify” meditation with clear, concise, and practical guidance, with guided meditations of various lengths;
  2. Relaxation and dealing with stressful emotions: gain a degree of physical, emotional and mental relaxation in order to make it a state of being;
  3. Practice Presence in your daily life: how to achieve a stable state of what Gurdjieff called self-remembering (today, it is called “presence”) with short, formal and informal practices to use in your daily life;
  4. Opening the Heart: learn how to develop, increase and expand “empathy” and “compassion” towards yourself and others;
  5. Connecting with our Intimate Self: to discover your essence, not in a theoretical and speculative way, but as a matter of fact;
  6. Creativity and Flow: especially devoted to artists (painters, writers, musicians), and also for those who, during an activity, feel “stuck” or blocked. What used to be called “lack of creativity” is not a rarity; and this doesn’t happen only when performing something creative, but also during our daily interactions with others. Here I’ll share with you some of the techniques I still use today;
  7. Of course, there will be a bonus section with some practices, for example, a guided “Rappel” – the sitting practice as taught by George I. Gurdjieff;

 

What are the results of such a Work?
– Improved focus, presence and problem-solving skills;
– Higher emotional intelligence;
– Clear the mind of unnecessary thought overload;
– Better sleep;
– More creativity;
– Ability to manage overall stress;
– Flexibility towards the change of life situations;
– Increased intuition;
– Balance in life;
– Self- development…. and so on, and so forth.

And, sorry if it isn’t much.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
