Everyone is welcome.  This two-day workshop concentrates on how to quicken the results of your meditation practices. Lots of people eagerly start meditating, hoping for quick results, and many do get results, although often, not as quickly as they would like

Then there are those who have started meditation recently have done it for years and find they are becoming jaded about their patterns, wondering if they are making a difference.

This workshop contains multiple practices, tips, meditations, and orientations. Each one can quicken the arrival of splendid results. Also, it is a beautiful opportunity to learn from Ken for two consecutive days. You can ask your specific questions and get answers to them on the spot.

The many different suggestions, benefits and discussion to fill the two days. They may include:

  • Mantra repetitions (how to release yourself into their benefits)
  • Multiple mantras some that you probably have not yet received
  • Movement (different moves, how they release your body, your feelings, your thinking, and your transcendence)
  • Selecting music that stimulates awakening states, and strengthens the direct expansion of your awareness
  •  breathing practices to promote your Chi and aliveness
  • Managing your fantasies and thoughts, so all of them promote your awakening
  • Grounding yourself in multiple dimensions that accelerates the outcomes you crave
  • Catalyzing awakening through shared experiences and practices with all who attend the workshop.
  • The two days afford us lots of time to understand and benefit from all that occurs during that time. 
  • Opportunities for focused discussion on what you need.

Ken intends that, by the end of the workshop, you will have refined your practice, so it empowers your goals for Awakening much more than you already have.

Trigonos - Caernarfon, Wales

6th to 12th October, 2018
(9.00am - 9.00pm most days - see below)

In the presence of Life Itself we experience utter silence and transparency. There we can discover our Selves as we never have before. The hunger or thirst to do this is powerful in everyone. Somewhere within, we all know that our completion lies here. We know that we need to 'go in' as 'deeply' as possible, that this is how we need to connect with the Source of Life.

And we can succeed with this simply by paying alert attention as we remain silent and undistracted by others around us, while living through what arises in our silence and aloneness. Eventually we can discover that there is actually nothing to do, that all we need is 'to be'.

We 'go in' by witnessing, by experiencing and by living all the layers in us that are part of our world-bound lives. These layers have developed in us all throughout the years we have lived. Complete physical silence and stillness gives us enough time to explore what is involved. Having sufficient time to do make the discovery is an essential ingredient. This practice promotes the direct experience of our beings beyond our day-to-day experiences.

The workshop gives us extended opportunities to enter silence and reap the rewards.

(9.30 am - 5.00pm)

Jane Roberts, a channel for an entity she called Seth, famously quoted him as saying, “The point of power is in the present moment”.

This statement, whatever its origins, encapsulates profound wisdom from the use of which we can all benefit greatly.

During the two days of the workshop, Ken will lead us through an exploration of the truth and practical value of this statement.

His aim is to:

  • Explore the profound value of I-Am-Here-and-now as a compass to keep ourselves on track to our Awakening
  • Use this compass to bring balance and fulfilment to our lives,
  • Release ourselves from past inhibitions or programing,
  • Keep a sense of direction into the future and
  • Experience the empowered Awakening that naturally unfold as our
    enlightened potential is liberated.

The workshop includes many opportunities for discussion (Q&A), paired and small group exercises, and other chances to practise the suggested techniques.
