TEACHER: Luke Anderson
THEME: In – Sight
MEDITATION: Awakening the third eye
Luke: There are SOOOOO many interesting references and symbols to inner vision in many ancient civilizations. From the ancient egyptians and the eye of horus to the Hindu deities and forehead adornments of the third eye to the many biblical references of the inner eye, there is an interesting reference and reverence to the forehead as being the portal to finding meaning and unlocking answers to life’s mysteries – inner vision. This portal is said to connect to the pineal and pituitary glands of the brain, the pituitary playing a major role in regulating vital body functions and general wellbeing. It is referred to as the body’s ‘master gland’ because it controls the activity of most other hormone-secreting glands. I’m not a medical expert nor am I an academic historian, I’m just a curious consciousness explorer with an interest in delving into meditation practices that have their roots in ancient teachings and wisdom. In this session we will bring our equanimous focus and attention inward and practice concentrating on the light, forms, and colours presenting themselves with our eyes closed. This combined with holding an open receptivity to what is coming up in the body will help us cultivate a hospitable inner environment for knowledge, wisdom, and meaning in our lives to manifest.
