Simultaneous Awareness and Natural Movement Day Course

Simultaneous Awareness is a subtle shift in the way we use the consciousness that lies behind our senses, using our sensory perception and presence as a doorway to a profoundly different way of experiencing the many layered worlds we walk within.

 

Based in part on Indigenous ways of being present in nature, it breaks the habitual pattern of continually focusing and refocusing our attention, (a bit like permanently clenching a muscle) that we are conditioned to use. The polar opposite of trying or concentrating, this brings us to a deeply relaxed inner state.

 

With a heightened level of awarenees, and a moment by moment presence, we become less prone to being 'grabbed' by our thoughts, and less affected by the overwhelming stimuli that we are often surrounded by.

 

We become capable of experiencing inner silence, a sense of being at peace with the world and within ourselves.

 

It is easy to access for any level of experience.

These are some of the immediate benefits:

 

~ Induces a deeply relaxed meditative (alpha) state of awareness within one or two minutes,

yet one that allows for a high level of function in and interaction with the world.

 

~ Brings us out of ourselves, and fully into the present moment.


~ Generates a direct experience of the ‘Spirit that moves through all things,'

a felt awareness of the unified field of consciousness that underlies physical reality.

 

~ We gain a deeper access to our intuition, to being moved.

 

~ We become less pushed and pulled by the constant stimulation and demands on our attention that modern life subjects us to.

    • ~ We feel more connected to and aware of the beauty of the natural world, even in the heart of the city. Nature becomes more alive, more vivid, more real.

       

      ~ The awareness of energy and energy fields is heightened, whilst allowing us to remain unaffected unless we choose to be.

       

      ~ The placing of our attention becomes a choice.

      ~ The abiltty to absorb and retain information is enhanced.

       

      ~ It helps to shut down the 'labeller'. Without the usual descriptive interface of our thoughts about what we're perceiving, we become able to access a direct perception of the world around us.

       

      ~ Sensitive to subtler layers of input, we more readily access the nature spirit realm.

Natural Movement

  • How we move profoundly affects our consciousness, and is a direct reflection of our inner state.

    Applying ways of moving common to indigenous, Earth based cultures throughout the world, natural movement brings us more fully into a relationship with our bodies and it's connection to the Earth

     

    It is how we are designed to move, using our muscles as shock absorbers, sending no shockwaves through our body or the surrounding environment, relieving stress on joints and mind.

     

    Enabling us to calm the mind, we become synchronised with the rhythms of nature. We flow through the landscape (or cityscape) with ease. We feel the life force within and around us, and become able to sense the world in a way that goes beyond the physical.

    To truly move in harmony with the heartbeat of creation.


This is how our consciousness is naturally designed to function. This is how our bodies are designed to move.

A meditative state of awareness whilst living and laughing, working and playing, is our birthright and our natural way of being.

We've just kinda forgotten how.

Feedback from a series of workshops within the mental healthcare sector of the N.H.S:


~ Gentle, powerful profound practice and presence. Ben has shown me an alternative way of using our attention skills and awareness to enable a healthy and balanced state of mind, an incredibly simple, yet effective technique that allows me to feel normal again. 

After years of being stuck in my head, I feel grounded in my own body.  I can feel my feet on my floor and wind in my hair.  I can have one clear stream of thought in my head instead of the ten that I sometimes had before.....  Although sceptical at first, I have started using the technique regularly.  Consequently, I feel that my thinking is clearer and more focused.  My body feels refreshed and energized, and I feel more inclined to use my creative potential. 
George Carroll... Social worker
