MEDITACION EN LA NATURALEZA Y PRACTICAS DE REIKI AL AIRE LIBRE
EN ASOCIACION CON SURYA CENTER DE VILLARRICA
"Tocar la Tierra es tocar el Alma"

Meditar en la naturaleza trae la vivencia inspiradora de darnos cuenta, que toda la paz y belleza del bosque y todo lo que vive siguen intactas en cada uno de nosotros. La infinidad de forma, color, textura y sensación presente en un lugar silvestre nos permiten retornar a la esencia, de quienes realmente somos. Se trata de un retorno, que permite una profunda sanación.



¿PORQUE EN LA MONTAÑA?

Porque la montaña trae a la conciencia toda la luminosidad, silencio y tranquilidad de la naturaleza prístina - por medio del aire diáfano, el bosque nativo, los arroyos, las voces de las aves y otros seres que ahí habitan. Porque el lugar de La Loma es un asentamiento indígena ancestral, reconocido por los mayores como morada de espíritus protectores y benéficos. Y, por último ...

Porque al pernoctar ahí en la montaña, el tiempo adquiere otra dimensión, dando paso a los ritmos naturales y universales de la tierra y permitiendo una re-conexión efectiva e inmediata con la realidad más duradera.

PROMUEVE:

Equilibrio emocional y físico - Progreso en el desarrollo espiritual - Respiración y circulación armónica - Liberación de estrés y ansiedad - Una progresiva y efectiva autosanación

POSIBILITA:

Adoptar prácticas de uso diario para mejorar la calidad de vida en todos sus aspectos - Percibir más allá de los sentidos más comunmente reconocidos - Vivenciar el 'todo', la unión con el infinito - Conectarse con la paz interior, y - lo que es muy práctico y útil - Llevarla misma tranquilidad 'puesta' al retornar a la ciudad .

WALKING MEDITATION, A PERMANENT LINK TO EQUANIMITY

We often think of meditation as only sitting - a problem in modern urban life when so much time is spent moving. But walking, with its natural rhythms of steps and breathing, is also a wonderful opportunity to connect with our inner balance. It's especially valuable because it can be practiced anywhere, at any time - in the busiest urban places. Vietnamese Master Thich Nhat Hanh wrote a book of walking meditation practice (left) with the title 'The Long Road Turns to Joy'. It is a wonderful companion.

SITTING ALONE AND QUIETLY ON THE EARTH

Sitting on the earth is a basic practices of Gaia Reiki. This reassuring contact with earth as the physical basis of life opens deeper understanding of our shared nature. As we settle into the welcoming presence, earth speaks to us on the level of intuition, gently inviting the tranquility that enables the lowering of anxiety and stress. Sitting alone helps us focus, breathe quietly. and let go of thoughts. Fritz Schumacher once commented, "What a difference it made, to spend ten minutes a day just sitting down, shutting up, and following my breathing ... it has changed my life." This daily practice, so necessary for the spiritual path, can be that short and simple.

BEING PRESENT AS THE SUN RISES OR SETS

The sun IS Reiki, source and life force of all that lives. The most ancient prayer of Indian antiquity, the Gayathri mantra, is said to have originated as an invocation to the sun, to illumine the minds, purify the spirits and guide the paths of human beings. Gaian science examines the energy transaction between sun and earth. Being fully present and focused on times of sunrise or sunset becomes a contact with the source and history of life itself. These are also the rare moments when the earth's rotation from west to east becomes palpable and visible to the eye. Mindful presence at such times becomes a meditation, on the energy of Gaia and Reiki - a concrete visualization of the most powerful kind.

WALKING BAREFOOT ... OUR FORGOTTEN ACT OF REVERENCE

Walking barefooot on the earth is another essential practice of Gaia Reiki. Removing footwear before entering a sacred place such as a temple is a common act of reverence across the world, extended by many cultures to the entering of the temple of a home, also revered as the cradle of the family. When we extend the same reverence to the earth, we gain access to messages and levels of understanding long since forgotten, as well as a holistic healthcare that is unequalled. The experience is so clear - I imagine a time when barefoot walking is seen as the modern spiritual, healing practice that it really is.

FOCUSING INTENTLY ON THE HERE AND NOW

There's such perfection, diversity and infinity of detail in the tiniest manifestation of nature, it's understandable if at first we fail to see that the "phenomena we observe" ("object-subject-verb" as separated by our language) are actually inseparable. Reality, or the way things happen, is far simpler, but with implications far more enormous. As our water-based senses receive the image of the dew-soaked leaf or flower, as our liquid eyeballs absorb their moist colour, shape and creativity, we begin to sense what's happening - a local and yet cosmic miracle. We're actually observing our larger selves - our own identity - and it is divine.

BEING STILL ENOUGH TO MEET THE NEIGHBOURS

Quietness, with mindfulness and intent, creates the atmosphere of mutual trust that enables living beings to approach each other. Bird watching is well-known to be often less a matter of doing than of simply being in a place. As we settle into a chosen place, we meld into our surroundings, principally because they and we are not as separate as we think we are. As they too remember this, all kinds of beings come and enter into the great conversation ... of life with itself. Such moments may show you a special affinity with one kind of being, perhaps a mouse, a fox, a butterfly or humming-bird.

BEING AT HOME IN RAINFALL, AND AT NIGHTTIME

As warm-blooded, diurnal beings, we naturally tend to avoid damp, darkness and cold. They are, however, integral parts of the natural systems that support life. Walking in rain provides insights into forest growth. Walking at night opens non-visual senses and introduces us to unknown aspects both of nature and the universe. Walking in snow, for example, is a way to understand key aspects of the hydrological cycle on which our water-based life on earth depends. Each of these venture into the unfamiliar helps us expand the limits of our perception.
