Dimensions of Being
Here you find a river of great beauty and articulation. It will take you to the understanding and experience of True Nature and the richness of its manifestation, its relation to personality and the non-conceptual dimensions (Absolute).
The Essence Basic Training is focused on the five most relevant manifestations of Essence called Lataif in the Sufi tradition.
They are: Will (white Essence), Strength (Red Essence), Compassion/Loving Kindness (Green Essence), Peace/Power (Black Essence) and Joy/Curiosity (Yellow Essence).
Lataif represent five impersonal attributes of Being that are universally present.
The Advanced Training includes:
The Authentic Self: where you remember and recognise your true identity; who am I really behind the mask of the personality and egoic identity.
The Absolute: beyond separation, prior unity, before form and manifestation, the pure non conceptual domain.
Diamond Guidance: the vehicle of direct knowing. Guidance reclaims its natural place usurped by the inner judge and starts guiding our life without doubt, oppression, judgment and prejudice.
The Pearl: the unique and original taste of individuality. The way in which Essence and its qualities manifest in and through you.
The Citadel: vehicle of impeccability. The skillful means that help you align your life to the Truth and your love for the Truth. Direction on the path and the capacity to practice the Way.
The Chandelier: the vehicle of manifestation, spiritual and material abundance. Embodying and expressing the uniqueness of who you are.
