PATH WITH HEART
The Warrior’s Quest: To Experience Freedom!
“Dreaming is an active pursuit and requires the mood and the skills of warriors,” Carlos Castaneda once told us. It was later in our apprenticeship that he introduced dreaming as a focused practice to experience new descriptions and new states of consciousness. He suggested that we deepen the practices he had already taught us years before: the daily practice of sequences of breath and movement, the recapitulation of daily actions and behaviors, the clarification of our intentions, and the consumption of a balanced and detoxifying diet. All these practices gave us the energy needed for the next lesson: to sustain a state of Freedom to Love without conditions.
“If a human being dreams a great dream, that is to love somebody” – Maya Angelou
In our series of classes on dreaming, we have been honing the dreaming attention, a way of paying attention to daily life affairs without getting lost in details. We have been experiencing the benefits of disrupting routines, keeping our perceptual possibilities open and fluid, accepting new descriptions about ourselves and the world. All the practices have served to support us in realizing projects and dreams in daily life, like recording music, opening an office for therapy or healing a family relationship.
“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse” – Carlos Castaneda
In our new Path with Heart Year 2020, from March 8 through November 22, we will focus on sustaining states of high consciousness and expansion. We will practice the embodiment of the power and attributes of warriors, in order to imbue the body with vitality, energy + purpose and a state of readiness to act and make decisions. All this in three specific areas: our body’s health and vitality, our relationships and our mind.
“Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy and vain. To be a warrior one needs to be light and fluid.” – Carlos Castaneda
PWH XXXIV – March 8 – May 31
In this first cycle you will learn about becoming healthy and becoming whole, using food, movements, relationships and projects in the world as allies to support your health. You will be guided to practice mindful sequences of movement and breath allowing your internal energy force to create healing, and exercises to clarify your thinking and sustain a clear focus. We will provide you with helpful information and tools to naturally support and heal your body, to increase your vitality, awareness and functionality, and to sustain these enhanced states over time. With these tools you can create a revolutionary change in how you nurture yourself.
PWH XXXV – June 7 – August 23
In this second cycle, we will practice letting go of superfluous and unnecessary items in our lives that imprison us in past actions and in trying to live in the future. We will practice BEING in the present moment, and releasing the unnecessary ‘turn on’ mindset that creates chronic stress and disease in the body. We will reclaim our right to CHOOSE, to go slow, to rewire brain pathways and create new connections that enable greater flexibility and resiliency—to sustain a new position of the assemblage point, the ultimate freedom. “To seek freedom is the only driving force I know,” our teacher Carlos Castaneda wrote.
PWH XXXVI – Sept. 6 – November 22
In this third cycle, you will learn about Unconditional Love and why it is essential to your health and your life. Offering a blank check of affection to someone is the best dream we can ever have, because it demands humbleness, fluidity and trust. In exchange, it brings the experience of invigorating energy and vitality. In these classes, we will practice exercises that emphasize breathing and balancing the Heart chakra as well as mindful exercises to break through the victimhood mentality and free yourself to Love. As Castaneda wrote: “A warrior loves, that’s all. He likes whatever or whomever he wants for the hell of it.”
