Denpasar Yoga Festival, July 2017

It is true that we start this journey because there is a desire to change. And yet, only through a sincere intention this journey is completed.

I would like to thank you to all participants and facilitator who has helped me in this profound experience. It is true that we see ourselves in people surround us. Each of us have and understand each other, because we are part of each other.

The sadness that you feel, has the same quality with the sadness that I feel. We might have different suffering and difficulties, but the quality of the feelings are the same.

This is how we will communicate to each other.

Thank you for sharing, I’m honored to have practice with you all.

Silent Healing Retreat (11 – 13 Aug 2017), Bali

silent-retreat-ENG-NEW-01
This retreat combines the learning process through Dhamma journey of noble silence, meditation (which consist of walking and sitting meditation), yoga asana practice, breathing practice and discussion about Dhamma (in Buddhist term “Dhamma” means good deeds). The objective of the retreat is for one to experience and have understanding about the nature of physical and mental (non-physical) phenomena. Also to gain mindfulness, focus and concentration. And finally to gain insights from within their own wisdom.

Noble silence is the practice of deep silence in period of time in order to observe and analyze the occurring the both phenomena, physical and mental, within an individual. In this practice participants will not be allowed to make any contact nor connection with other participants. Participants will not speak during this practice, in order for them to observe the ability of their other senses including the physical and mental senses. The noble silence practice will be started on the first morning of the retreat and ends at the beginning of the closing ceremony.

Meditation practice will be divided into two terms, walking meditation and sitting meditation. Commonly walking meditation is the “pre practice” to prepare sitting meditation. One of our facilitator will explain what to do on walking meditation and all participants to follow. Thus, also applied on sitting meditation. Purpose of meditation practice is to maintain the peace and calmness of the mind (physical and mental state), in the longer term within the meditation practice yogi will be able to separate which one is distraction and which one is meditation object.

Dhamma Talk is a speech delivered by our teacher. Speech topic will be vary, to give an over view about the objective of the whole practice and how we connect the practice to our reality. Expected the speech will give insights of good deed in morality for all yogis, participants and facilitators.

Asana Yoga Practice will be practicing gentle hatha asana to give a gentle stretch each mornings before all starting the learning process. This way we can maintain the well being of both physical and mental body.

Breathing Practice (Healing Breath) programs is a collective programs to share and learn about breathing technique with a specific approach. The technique on Healing Breath eventually targeting to create tremor on the physical body in order for the body to create reaction in the mental and emotional expression state in the natural way. Why do we need to allow the body to express this mental state? Because in every single part of our physical body that was hurt or storing pain from the previous trauma, that part of the body will create “residue” or the waste energy in different form. When this waste is not being cleaned, it will stay in the body. This waste can be stored in the body in the form of water, gas, mucus, tears, etc. Thus waste if stored in a long term might cause damage to the inner organs.
In this practice, the breathing practice will have two option using blocks or not using blocks. For first time participants will not use block, regular participants may have option. Block will be placed under the shoulder blades, while participants lie down on their back. This way, tremor might be created during the practice. Tremor phenomena may help participants to release deep trauma and stretch (open up) the chest and lung muscles.

Diary: Facilitator Training Day#1

Dear U,

Another class-practice has passed and each time feeling gets deeper, pain gets more and more tangible. This pain that has long I carried, but never realize having it. This pain that has caused my chest feels heavy every time I try to breath deep.

The greatest fear has finally appeared. This fear that has haunted me all this time. Loneliness, fear of being dumped and unaccepted, fear of being rejected, fear of not being loved, fear of being hated (by everything). Everything I have called through my own ability, power and intentions.

Fear of seeing what my thoughts come true in this fabricated physical reality. All thoughts, including the good and the bad. Including all of my insecurity, including all of my shame.

Feeling of missing someone, or something. Those who love me but I pushed them away. I have refused them. Guilt was strong.

I was angry. Angry for what I have done, everything. Angry for being that person I was at that one moment of my life. I tried not to get angry, but I failed. I was still angry to that person I become at that case, in that moment. I wish I was stronger. I tried.

Sadness was monstrous. Throwing rocks at my chest. Creating ghost in my head, to make me run from it’s reality.

Sadness of me not having the ability to be in love.

I want to learn that. Please teach me.

Why do we practice in group? In some ways people prefer to practice on their own, but some other feels more open and get bigger benefit when they practice in group. Both ways with people they know, or strangers. When faced with real feelings (that might not be uncomfortable), the thinking mind start the “politic games” to make complicated thoughts and makes us confused. But when a person get through that, they will understand that being in a group is not only become one of the best way to be connected with others, but also to connect with self.

Being Vulnerable

“When I finally surrender, I don’t have to fight anymore. People who loves me stay close with me, and those who hurt me stay away.”

Being vulnerable is not only about being susceptible to physical or emotional attacks (harm). It is more about being strong to surrender to the destiny. Being vulnerable is not only about needing a special care or support or protection due to age, disability or risk to be abused or neglected. It is more about being brave to make decision and commit to do our best in this life, with full intention to fulfill the desire to become content, and continuously finding out and learning from mistakes.

Being vulnerable is the only thing that we can do for ourselves, to surrender and stop fighting for a little bit (at this moment). Being vulnerable is when we are continuously making efforts to be our best, but at the same time accepting whatever comes and consciously being grateful for what we have had.

Being vulnerable is accepting that everyone’s life have purpose and meaning differently. Being vulnerable is accepting that sometimes things are not always goes the way we want. Being vulnerable is accepting life as what is.

Sometimes I wish it’s easy to do all these things. We shall keep learning from life to be vulnerable.
