EXERCISE : THE FOUNT

  
Painting by Vega John

Before starting your "inner work" make sure that you won't be disturbed and that you start with a relaxation exercise.

Imagine a fount springing from granite rock…you see its pure water sparkle in the sun and hear its splashes in the surrounding silence… you experience this special place, where everything is clearer…pure…more essential.

Start drinking the water…and feel its beneficent energy pervading you and making you feel lighter… 

Now walk into the spring itself…letting the water flow over you…imagine that it has the power of flowing through each one of your body cells and in between them…imagine it also flowing through the innumerable nuances of your sentiments and emotions… and through your intellect as well… feel this water cleansing you of all the psychic debris we inevitably accumulate day after day…frustrations…regrets…worries…thoughts of all kinds. 

Gradually you experience how the purity of this font becomes your purity, and its energy becomes your energy… 

Finally, imagine that you are the fount itself…where all is possible and life is forever new… 

·        It is recommended that you tape this exercise on a tape recorder, find your own narrative pace and allow some time for creating the special moods and the atmosphere .

·        Take if possible a few notes of your impressions.


        EXERCISE : THE FLAME 

 

Before starting your "inner work" make sure that you won't be disturbed and that you start with a relaxation exercise. 

Imagine a burning flame…See it dancing…drawing ever-changing designs in the air…look into it as it moves…seek to experience its fiery quality… As you keep visualizing this flame…think about fire and its manifestations in the psyche: personal warmth and radiance…flaming love or joy…fiery enthusiasm…ardor… Finally as you keep the flame in front of your inner eye…slowly imagine that you are animated by that fire…that you are becoming that flame… 

·      It is recommended that you tape this exercise on a tape recorder, find your own narrative pace and allow some time for creating the special moods and the atmosphere .

        EXERCISE : THE SUN

   
Painting by Rassouli

Before starting your "inner work" make sure that you won't be disturbed and that you start with a relaxation exercise. 

Visualize yourself on the beach at dawn… the sea is almost motionless as the last bright stars fade away… feel the freshness and the purity of the air…watch the water…the stars…the dark sky… take some time to experience the silence before sunrise, the stillness filled with all possibilities… slowly, the darkness melts and the colors change…the sky over the horizon becomes red…the golden… Then the sun's first rays reach you…and you watch it slowly emerging from the water….  

With half the sun's disk visible and the rest still below the horizon…you see that its reflection in the water is creating a path of golden shimmering light leading from you all the way to its very heart… 

The temperature of the water is pleasant…and you decide to go in… slowly…with joy…you start to swim in the golden radiance…you feel the light-filled water touching your body…you experience yourself floating effortlessly and moving pleasurably in the sea… 

The more you swim toward the sun, the less aware you are of the water, and the more the light around you increases…you feel enveloped in a beneficent, golden light which permeates you completely… your body is bathing now in the vitality of the sun…your feelings are pervaded by its warmth…your mind is illuminated by its light. 

It is recommended that you tape this exercise on a tape recorder, find your own narrative pace and allow some time for creating the special moods and the atmosphere .

Take if possible a few notes of your impressions


           EXERCISE : THE ROSE

 

To convey the sense of an unfolding process in the psyche, and at the same time to facilitate it, we have prepared this exercise of the blossoming of the rose.  

Imagine a rosebush: roots, stem, leaves, and, on top, a rosebud. The rosebud is closed, and enveloped by its green sepals.  Take your time in visualizing all the details clearly. Now imagine that the sepals start to open, turn back, and reveal the petals inside -tender, delicate, still closed. 

Now the petals themselves slowly begin to open.  As they do so, you become aware of a blossoming also occurring in the depths of your being.  You feel that something in you is opening[If
