In the height of the light from last week’s full moon, we found ourselves speaking to a crowd of five hundred enthusiastic people who had come from around the US and abroad to immerse themselves in a week-long workshop on Spirit and Consciousness. Organized by the Chopra Center, this biannual event has grown into a big, fantastic experience for nourishing the soul and waking up our deep connection with the abstract.
We were fortunate to be invited to present at this year’s event. It was an honor to be a part of such a wonderful and broad-based gathering, together with Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson and Martha Beck.
We taught participants a sequence of Being Energy® movements to wake up energy at the feet and trunk and bring it to the heart—a companion to a recapitulation experience. We framed the recapitulation as a means to become more aware of what we do and to recover energy trapped within the emotional experience of past events.
We shared some of the concepts of recapitulation as it relates to quantum physics principles and the current science of consciousness.
Deepak expressed how the recapitulation trains us to see that we are not the experience; we are the Consciousness that is having the experience.
To this, we added that the recapitulation is another way to bring us to the present and access stored energy, so that we can all live up to our full human potential. In the recapitulation, we go into the quantum realm and we time travel with our minds to release and restore our energy and renew ourselves.
The recapitulation is about recapturing energy that we gave up in past interactions and bringing it to the present moment. In the recapitulation, we enter into the body and we reach into the realm of the non-local. We go back in time-space with our awareness and move our perceptual point about the past experience. Then, we bring that new perception back to the present moment and Here We Are… we’ve freed up our energy in this process. We’ve reformulated our perception of the meaning of a past event, and liberated the energy trapped in the feelings we carry from it.
To conclude our presentation, we all danced the energy movements to the tune of Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On.
We had a blast, and shared some key things about an ancient practice applied to our modern times: the recapitulation.
We can’t wait to do it again!
