I’m so happy that you will come back and teach more classes 🙂
So glad to hear that you’re excited! Looking forward to seeing you at MNDFL on Oct 1 as I usher in this new workshop format.
I have already booked your class. I can’t wait to take it:)
Regarding what you said in this podcast, I experienced OM. When I said it in silence without engage any part of my physical body, only by using my mind, it automatically came out of my heart and from there I turned into the vibrations. It was so nature and easy.
I saw(I mean not see by my eyes but I just see them) the vibrations in your class so I was not freak out this time. It was peacefully done and totally without fear.
unfortunately, I don’t know how I did it because I did it in my dream. It was a very weird dream, I saw people were dancing so I joined them, and weirdly enough it becomes a yoga class. I forgot almost everything , but I still remember the word OM . People around me started say OM, so I closed my eyes and said OM the way which you told me in your class, then this time OM came out to be the most wired OM I’ve ever said in my life. After I stayed aware with the vibrations a while, the class was over. The teacher just told me listen to the inner OM then he/she left. I don’t know the teacher, I didn’t notice any of this teacher’s appearance. I only felt the teacher’s presence. Everything in the dream I consider illusion but the experience was real.
This experience made me realized that I actually have a deep hidden form which always been there. I have tried several time to be that form after that experience , all the attempts failed. I hope through more practice, I no longer be blocked out from the hidden form.
Thank for sharing your experience. While we typically identify with our waking consciousness, in meditative traditions it is only one aspect of ourselves. The well of our consciousness runs infinitely deep and certainly includes the dream-state experiences. Your recognition of the illusion of the dream but the authenticity of the experience is spot on!
Like all things, keep practicing the OM, awake and in dreams :), and see where it takes you.
All my best,
