Topic: Enlightenment & The State of Flow
Free “Enlightenment & The State of Flow” meditation CD will be given to participants who RSVP to Info@NuminousOnline.com
It is an indomitable truth that as life continues, we experience more and more inevitable losses. No one gets out of this life unscathed. How does one remain buoyant, happy and engaged in life when it offers us so many opportunities to be otherwise?
There is a way of being in this world that enables us to proceed through devastating loss and still thrive. We see clues to this way of life in the three religious traditions that discuss meditation as a means to obtain enlightenment. Although these traditions don’t agree on what it means to be enlightened, they do agree that enlightenment means the end of suffering. Many people believe that enlightenment is impossible to reach, similar to the mythical place of Shangri-La. However, current neuroscience is documenting that enlightenment is simply a trained nervous system, and through skilled meditation training, it can be reached.
In this Seeking Source Saturday, we will discuss meditation skills needed for self-regulation required to obtain the state of “flow” outlined by positive psychologist, Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D. Flow could actually be thought of as “enlightenment-light”. We will discuss the characteristics of a flow state, and how to train the mind to attend to our daily lives in a manner that facilitates this state. The state of flow has many aspects of the enlightened state, which would have us be more aware of the movement and people around us and be more attuned to responding to it’s subtle nuances. An enlightened mind is not self-involved, and does not project the past on to the future. The result is that it remains enraptured in the ever unfolding present.
To help prime the mind to experience these sublime states, we are blessed to have positive music award winner, singer/song writer Mark Shepard, perform and lead us in song in with his transformative music.
