TA Training Workshop
- The Berne Institute (Kegworth)

19th September 2019
(10.00am to 5.00pm)

RELEASING TRANSCENDENT SPIRITUAL ENERGIES - Opening the Crown & Other Centres in the Body

A Workshop with Ken Mellor

In this workshop, Ken will take everyone through a series of energy related meditations. They are designed to activate Chakras (energy centres) in the spine and head. In particular, Ken will concentrate on centres at the base of the spine, at the level of the heart, inside the head, at the top of the head, and on the point between the eyebrows. Each centre carries with it a distinctive type of energy and unique dimensions of perception and understanding.
In other words, each centre is a gateway into a whole universe of different experiences.

These energies help to flood our bodies and conciousness with spiritual vitality and aliveness. They also help to transform boldily, emotional and spiritual awareness with overall awakening.

Meditations such as these have ancient origins that are still powerful in the modern world when introduced to us by someone who has mastered them. Ken has had years of training and practice in developing the necessary skills.

Everyone is welcome.  This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to have the benefits of two full days in a small group with Ken.

Last year, everyone valued the individual attention, and the specific practices Ken devised to enable them to meet their unique needs and to help them to expand their spiritual awakening.

Ken introduced the first of these Master Classes last year (2018). The feedback from everyone was that the two days were fruitful and awakening, especially when Ken taught, individualised ways of maturing and expanding personal meditation practices.

He loves the release people experience with the kind of attention these Master Classes make possible; He is very much looking forward to doing more this year.

Trigonos - Caernarfon, Wales

5th to 11th October, 2019
(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.
