Ascension is a series of simple, effortless, and powerful meditative techniques, called Ascension Attitudes, that bring the mind from the busy surface level to the profound, silent depths of Pure Consciousness. Based in Praise, Gratitude, and Love, Ascension requires no specific beliefs, no difficult postures, and no superhuman abilities of concentration. In this first class, called the First Sphere, we will learn the first four techniques of Ascension, alternating between instruction and practice. A deep belief couched into so many spiritual traditions is that meditation is extremely difficult, that the busy monkey mind needs to be chained in order to experience silence, and that consequently, Enlightenment is a fruit within reach for only a fortunate few. This is fundamentally incorrect. Stillness is easy and natural to the mind and Enlightenment is the natural functioning of the human nervous system.
