Module 1 – Meditate

The purpose and
power of meditation

Balance your everyday life by meditating, and move through life from a deeper connected state of presence.

We will address:
Why the purpose of meditation is much more than just relaxing; it’s basically connecting yourself to the source of life within.
help-session1

We will learn to align ourselves with the fundamental connectedness of life. This session goes into WHY meditation is a key practice in spirituality, and the fundamental features of a true spiritual practice.

Module 2 – Clean

Purify your vision

See life clearly as it is, purify your consciousness, and
readjust your direction.

We will address:
Why our vision of life and daily matters tends to get a bit distorted, and how to regain the strength of clarity.
help-session2

We will explore the insights behind the effective technique of cleaning. You’ll understand how your willpower is a needed support and extremely important in regaining your direction in life. We will also learn to deal with the experience of losing our sense of inner clarity and lightness of heart.

Join us on 10 Mar 2018 at 2.30 pm CEST, 7:00 pm IST

Module 3 – Pray
s3-bg

Open the door to your inner companion

Close your eyes, silence your ego, and trust your inner guidance.

We will address:
The language of the heart, and how to soften the ego and surrender to the depth of the heart.

We will inquire into the power of prayer as a way of reconnecting with the wisdom of the higher presence within. Changing ourselves can seem tremendously difficult, as we fall into the trap of struggling. Prayer and surrender are softer and lighter ways of reconnecting with ourselves.

Module 4 – Simplify
s4-bg

Simplicity and contentment
are keys to joy

Simply be. Use Nature to emulate the simplicity of creation.

We will address:
Why we tend to get caught up in all kinds of intricacies, and how to untangle ourselves from the identifications that keeps us separate.

Nature teaches us effortless action, simplicity and beauty. As humans we identify in an attempt to navigate in this world, but this can become a trap. We’ll investigate how simplicity can get you back on track faster than anything else, and how intricacies and complexities can be reminders of the soul’s deep longing.

Module 5 – Accept

When life hurts, you’re at the doorway of transformation

“It is as it is.” Going through pain, dealing with suffering.

We will address:
How to relate creatively to pain and suffering in life, and thus change not only your experience but yourself in the process.
help-session5

Turning towards suffering seems counter-intuitive, as our automatic reaction is more often to turn away from suffering. And yet, seeing it “as it is” is a step that can relieve us from further pain and suffering. This module will primarily focus on emotional pain, and how to accept our experience.

Module 6 – Love

Heartfulness: hearts full of love

Generosity and acceptance open the heart to embrace the differences among us.

We will address:
What is meant by moving through life in a connected state of presence, and going beyond experiences of isolation and separation.
help-session6

Look beyond the walls of separation and recognize the interconnectedness of all human beings. The heart is by nature inclusive rather than exclusive. Generosity is more that giving material things, it is basically about how well we accept the differences among each other.

Speaker’s acknowledgement
Appearances are never the whole story. Even though I am the host of this series, the teachings presented are not of my own making. On the live webinars, I will do my best to let the teachings, the deep insight and the wisdom innate in Heartfulness come forth. My hope is, that you might be touched by these rich and beautiful teachings, as have I. Only together can we create a world of union and connectedness, and bringing forth more love, peace and joy. It all starts in the heart.
There is a number of people, whose support, contribution and inspiration have been so profound that this project just wouldn’t have come alive without them.
My deep and most sincere gratitude goes to Chariji and Daaji, for opening my heart by their mere presence in this world. Words can never express how deeply they have touched my heart, how gentle they have transformed my life, and how my ongoing transformation is nurtured by their support and wisdom.
Dorina Gnauer for her ability to clairify and pinpoint essential parts of Babujis teachings, and co-creating a structure for these webinars. These webinars are a light version of an extensive series of teachings on the Maxims, that we developed and taught together in the Heartfulness Center Aarhus.
Steen and Mikala Bruun for their unwavering love and support, for opening their home and hearts, including countless hours of discussion over coffee.
Bodhi Jeffreys for generously showering me with his love and wisdom and showing me how to trust the path of life, no matter what.
Victor Kannan for believing in this project, despite the inevitable bumps, challenges and changes along the way.
Finally my thanks to all my fellow volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make projects like this come alive. These webinars just wouldn’t be possible without their expertise and continuous support.
