Integral Meditation in Holoscendence: Accessing Primordial Awareness for Waking Up, Cleaning Up, Growing Up, and Showing Up

In this revolutionary breakthrough process, already tested with virtually thousands of people of different professional and cultural backgrounds, you will experientially learn how to use multiple dimensions of consciousness (including that of pristine primordial awareness) to foster Waking Up, Growing Up, Cleaning Up, and Showing Up in a profoundly integral and viscerally-felt fashion.

Integral Meditation is a set of powerful (and virtually unknown, though sometimes treasured in secret inner traditions) contemplative techniques which allows you to discern, objectify, and unify numerous processes within:

• your integral embodiment (including the full range of subtle energies);

• your consciousness (including gross to subtle to causal to nondual states and the full spectrum of stages up to third-tier potentials);

• your intersubjectivity and interpersonal/relational intelligence (radically deepening your skillful engagement with the We dimension);

• and your social-environmental embeddedness (raising your capacity to interact with what is known as “places of power” as well as gaining experiential insights into various living chronotopes, or space-time constellations, as well as the total-unity and interconnectedness of universal existence).

Integral Meditation unfolds within—and in a seamless unity with—the spacious and luminous container of Holoscendence [1], which is a unique style of interacting with 1st-person, 2nd-person, and 3rd-person experiential realities. It is an integral space of being aware and energetically present while embracing both dual and nondual, local and nonlocal, temporal and timeless dimensions of being.

Holoscendence approaches what is known as the AQAL Matrix in a creative, transpersonal, and experiential way, thus allowing to manifest an integration of dozens of various Eastern and Western psychological and psychotechnological schools of transforming and healing our being-in-the-world.

This unique union of Integral Meditation and Holoscendence is a spontaneously emergent teaching that quickly and effectively points out how you can develop an effortless capacity for meta-awareness so as to cultivate heightened meditative states with your eyes open amidst daily activities (such as interacting with your clients, parents, and relatives with uttermost spacious mindfulness and spontaneously flowing compassionate care and heartfelt love) as well as in formal practice.

This text was written as an application for conducting an experiential workshop (to be co-facilitated by Tatyana Parfenova) at the Integral European Conference 2020.

[1] The term Holoscendence as well as its overall approach was introduced by Sergey Kupriyanov, MD, PhD in Med.

Eat Like A Baby To Enhance Digestion

I was having a conversation with my best friend the other day about digestion and hunger cues and she mentioned how those were so evident in her newborn baby.He eats less at night, eats slowly, naturally stops when he’s full and gets annoyed when there are distractions while he eats. (I thought was especially funny to think about a baby swatting away a toy while attached to a bottle.) The thing is, we all did this once too. These cues were once very natural for us. But they were conditioned out of us as we got older and became more accustomed to this fast-paced world we live in where everything must be done at super-sonic speed, including mealtime. However, it’s not how our bodies were designed to optimally function. When we eat quickly we put ourselves into a state of stress, and a stress state actually shuts down the digestive system. This hinders the digestion process, which can lead to a whole host of issues, such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue and lagging energy. The best way to counteract this constant stress state is to enjoy your meals in a relaxed state by eating slowly. Savor your food without distraction (just like my friend’s baby). Get intimate with the taste, texture, aroma and visuals of the meal. This will not only increase your pleasure and satisfaction of the food, but also will enhance the digestive process. And just like a baby, slowing down and paying attention to your food will lead you to stop naturally when you’re full and decrease the likelihood of overeating. Did you know it takes the brain 20 minutes to catch up to the stomach? So what happens then if you eat an entire plateful of food in just 5 minutes? The answer is you probably end up eating more than your body needs because your brain didn’t have the chance to the register the food in your stomach. If you think you have issues with overeating or often find that your stomach is distended after your meals, get rid of distractions while eating. Becoming more fully present with your food will help you slow down and more readily read your body’s hunger and satisfaction cues. These are just a few tips that I hope can help you get more in tune with your digestive process.

Changing Habits: What’s Your Why?

When contemplating changing your habits or lifestyle, the most important question to ask yourself is: WHY? Why am I doing this? Why do I want this? There are as many different and right answers to this one as there are people. And your answer is the quickest way to get to what lies beneath the desire and discover what’s at the core. It’s also the best way to keep the motivation going when changing your habits because when you’re clear on your WHY, it can pick you back up if your enthusiasm starts to wane. Now there are Why(s) when eradicating an unhealthy habit and there are Why(s) when implementing a new healthy habit, and both can be uncovered with a few what and when queries. To get you started on the digging process, grab a journal and a pen, and answer these questions. Use whichever question fits your current situation, repeat it to yourself, ideally aloud, and sit with it for a moment. Then write down whatever bubbles up. 1. What purpose does this habit serve? / What purpose do I want this habit to serve? 2. What are my reasons for wanting to change/implement this habit? 3. When I give in to this habit, how do I honestly feel afterward? / How do I want this habit to make me feel afterward? 4. What imbalances am I causing with this habit? / What imbalances am I trying to fix with this habit? 5. What does my life look like when this habit is no longer a part of it? / What does my life look like when this habit is part of my regular routine? Once you’ve discovered your Why(s), repeat them often to yourself. You can even try posting your Why on your bathroom mirror, at the top of your computer screen or on your nightstand, where it can serve as a constant reminder of the commitment you’re making to yourself and your health. My personal why for leading a healthy lifestyle is freedom and the ability to do what I love. I believe the body is our vehicle in life to accomplish our soul mission and if the body isn’t healthy or properly functioning, we can’t show up to our fullest capacity in any area of our lives. So what’s your Why?

Finding Your Niche

The initial time I became engaged in online coaching, I reached a number of other people. A lot of these people were fully on their way to establishing an online coaching business. “So far, so good”, I realized to myself.   It spun out that a lot of the individuals I was rubbing shoulders with digitally were mostly walking the misguided path. They had all the misguided views on how to start and run a strong online coaching business.   In fact, for the longest time, I battled with my own coaching business because I incorporated a number of their theories.   One of the most perplexing and harmful ideas that I subscribed to be the idea that I should recruit as many clients for one-on-one coaching. In speculation, this made sense because, let’s face it, if you want to learn from someone, the best way to do so is to have that person right in front of you.   While that person is talking, you can engage that person and ask questions that mean I lot to you.   Maybe there are a lot of materials that make little sense to you. Perhaps this person is skipping certain essential ingredients.   Whatever the claim may be the fact that they’re in front of you enables you to propose questions in real-time so they can commit with you in such a way that you pick up the knowledge that will take your expertise to the next level. All this is reasonably easy to grasp.   However, the obstacle is individuals will not seek one-to-one coaches unless that person is worth seeking. I anticipate you can understand that. I hope the value premise is clear with the announcement I just said.   Think about it. If you are just some arbitrary person who keeps suggesting to himself and to anyone who would bear to listen that you are an authority, do you think you will be perceived as an expert? Chances are you won’t.   You have to pay your dues. You have to write lots of books. You have to get interviewed a lot. You have to grow into some sifting of minor media image. You have to establish a name in your industry.   A bunch of these actions take relatively a dose of creation, focus and inclination. Yes, they likewise take a lot of time, and this is how you establish a premium brand.   Once you have arrived at that stage, suddenly it makes sense to advertise yourself in terms of one-to-one coaching. Prior to that moment, it doesn’t produce a whole lot of sense because people couldn’t care less.   They’d rather read your book. They’ll give you a shot that way. Maybe they’ll watch a video that you shot a long time ago.   However, in terms of paying up to $300 per hour for one hour of Face Time, I don’t think so. Unfortunately, there are so many other people who think like me.   Do yourself an enormous favor. Develop a premium brand first.
