This is a study of "The Way Of Mastery" ~~~ Group begins with a half hour meditation at 11:00 a.m. ~ group ends at 1:00 p.m. "Mastery Group" guidelines Pls. note: the Heart Circle is NOT a process, discussion, debate or advice giving group - This is not a question and answer group. Rather, this it is an opportunity to explore and step into Mastery of Self, by accessing the inner realm of true heart knowing ~ extending the presence of Love and the birthing (abiding in) Christ consciousness (Buddha, Krishna, Love, Source, God etc. consciousness, call it what you may…), i.e. our true essence of self. This requires inner examination and assuming responsibility for one's feelings and emotions (write them down in your journal for examination), be with them, notice them and work with inner healing and strengthening personal navigation in the inner realm. Please refrain from "story telling" as it only floods the neural-pathways with experiences of past or future anxieties, and potentially contributes to kindling old drama/trauma experiences. This takes us out of the ever present NOW. Our habitual reactions with defense and emotional charge propel us into old action/reaction resistance patterns - please notice your inner reactions and refrain from outwardly asking questions, expanded discourse and your "story" ~ Please use "I" statements rather than "you" or "we" when making comments. At the end of each of the three sections of the book i.e. "The Way Of The Heart", "The Way Of Transformation" and "The Way Of Knowing" we will do an extensive review with question asking, discussion, debate and perhaps some story telling, to our minds content at the end of each "Part". (Addendum to "story telling": It is appropriate to point (reference) stories.
