  Awareness Facilitator Training School 

with Master* Awareness Facilitator
Ken "Socrates" Pollinger, Ph.D.

*From the Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic, by Osho:
"The master helps you to reach your own experience.  He does not give you the Vedas, the Koran, the Bible; he throws you to yourself. He makes you aware of your own juice, of your inner sources, of your own godliness. He liberates you from the scriptures. He liberates you from the interpretations of others.  He liberates you from all belief. He liberates you from all speculation, from all guesswork.  He liberates you from philosophy and from religion and from theology.  He liberates you, in short, from the world of words--because the word is the problem. To be an individual is to be liberated, is to be enlightened."

PRESENT VISION

Create an AWARENESS FACILITATOR TRAINING SCHOOL in order to train a multitude of AWARENESS FACILITATORS to go out into people's homes to start up small, intimate AWARENESS GROUPS.

A School of TRANSFORMATION, an alchemical School--from unconsciousness to consciousness, from intellectual to intuitional, from darkness to light.

The Gestalt Perspective and the Mindfulness/Meditative Approach will form the basis of the Training. Since money is NOT the objective, the cost should be VERY reasonable and fair. (Monies received go to pay the taxes, heat and maintenance of the Retreat Center).

We are blessed with two physical locations: the New Age Center in Nyack, and the Point of Infinity Retreat Center near Ellenville.

The TENTATIVE Components will consist of:

-short/long meditative exercises with IMMEDIATE feedback
-mindful stretching/yoga with feedback
-required/suggested readings, DVD's
-learn the Gestalt Perspective and applications
-listening/communication Facilitator skills
-fasting/cleansing instruction
-other modalities as arise

NOTE: Many groups meet to SIT PASSIVELY to watch and listen to "gurus"/"enlightened" teachers and maybe share for a short time afterwards. Our vision is to have MAXIMUM communication/sharing, emphasizing EXPERIENCES/EXPERIMENTS, yet with lots of SILENCE. Remember: SHARE, don't IMPOSE.

People want to be heard
People want to talk
People want to be accepted
People want to BELONG
People want SILENCE
People want to grow spiritually with mutual support
People want to "AWAKEN"

Sample Group Circles (curricula) will be created with suggested group activities (theory and practice) and Awareness Facilitators will also modify these and create their own versions.

More information will be forthcoming in the near future, concerning start-up meetings and dates. Inquiries are welcomed.
