Fire element become the first element that must be awaken, thus water can flow to places it is needed, forming earth to the ideal space with strength while body in relax state, flexibility become its nature state.

However, due to our daily postural habit, the natural curves changes into imbalanced that can create condition such as kyphosis (hunch back), lordosis (sway-back) and scoliosis (side way curves). Yoga practice is best designed to work on these condition and help the spine to find its natural curves.

Our natural spine curves have these condition of normal kyphosis and lordosis. Problem appears when the curves grows into extreme condition or too much curved forward or backward. These extreme conditions mostly being developed through our daily lifestyle.

Our Breath and Our Emotions

When we have our breath, nobody can steal our peace.

Our breath has a very close relationship with our emotions and feelings. Imagine when we are happy, our breath feels more relieving. But, when we are scared, our breath become interrupted and even stopped. Also when we are sad or crying, our breath cannot flow freely, it feels restricted and difficult to breath.

Our emotions influences the way we breathe as well. When the emotion is fluctuated, often we (directly) hold our breath. When we are surprised, often also we hold our breath. But, when we are relaxed and not under pressure, our breath become free and comfortable. This is how we can see directly and tangibly of the relationship of our breath and our emotion and feelings.

Why does the breath and the emotion have such close relationship?

Technically, from the beginning of the creation. The first cell that is created before the body is created, are the cell of our brain. Which is part of the brain that we called as Limbic System. Limbic system of the brain is the first part that is being created when we live as an embryo. This Limbic system later on create many parts such as hypothalamus, thalamus, amygdala and pituitary gland. This Limbic system is working throughout all process of memories during the lifetime of the cells.

Even when part of the body is not yet perfect, the Limbic system has recorded all of the knowledge from the experiences and founding that is being learned by the senses of the cells. This recording are being made as “feelings”. Therefore the communication form of feelings are the very basic communication of all cells. Even when it is a simple ones.

As the embryo grows, the organs also growing. Inside the womb we are not yet using our respiratory system to breath. We are breathing with our mother. At this moment, our brain also learn throughout all feelings and emotions that is being represented by our caretaker. And finally, when the day we born we start to lean our first breath.

As a baby, we cannot operate our body as its function. We still lean how to move our fingers and toes. What we can do is only breath and use our senses through the language of feelings. Therefore the first and most significant source of knowledge that we learn in this life is: (1) Our Breathing and (2) Our Feelings. As we haven’t yet be able to use words to express our feelings. We use instead our breathing and emotions to express our desire.

The two language of breath and feelings are the language that we use from the beginning of this life as a human being, therefore these two language have very close relationship to each other to support the expression of our physical body.

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.
