Planes of Being and Consciousness: There are planes of being and consciousness that are constantly evolving from the subconscious to conscious and superconscious being in us. The Physical, Vital, Mental and finally Supramental selves are gradually unfolding in the human consciousness. In this series, Vladimir Yatsenko presents a holistic vision of all major planes of being and consciousness in the light of Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
Cultivating Healing Speech: In this next series of talks, Vladimir will focus on the Everyday Practice of Integral Yoga. We begin with Cultivating Healing Speech, an informal talk that addresses the importance of sincere and compassionate communications in relationships. Areas we will explore and discover together include:
- What is meant by sincere communications?
- The art of ‘intentional listening’, a deep practice of uncovering the subtle intentions behind one’s communications
- The importance of precision in word choice
Austerity in mind and speech, including the spiritual benefit of silence
Tools and exercises will be suggested to help transform our communication patterns and cultivate the practice of healing relationships through speech.
