Are you ready to learn to use soul guidance, your instincts, and how to connect to the wisdom of nature (the creative unconscious) so you have a fully functional inner-compass?
Human beings are blessed with the wisdom of the universe within the cells of their very being; this is traditionally called “instinct”, and often expresses itself as out gut feeling about an issue at hand.
Intuition is our capacity to preconceive the wholeness of ideas, or what is to come by gaining information and guidance outside what we can know or perceive beyond the immediate facts.
The challenge we all face in today’s modern, fast-paced world of go-go-go, do-do-do…is that our minds get so busy, we get distracted and tend not to access our gut instincts or intuition – we get trapped in our heads. The result is that people often find themselves saying, “I wish I hadn’t done that”, or, “why on earth did I do that”, which often leads to the fearful reaction of, “what will I do now!”
When we learn to access our instincts and intuition, it as though we have our own internal GPS system that helps us make optimal, dream affirmative decisions and gets us to the right places to be with the right people at the right times. With practice, we are often amazed to find that there is a seemingly invisible force guiding us; we relax, slow down, feel, intuit, and find that we make better, more efficient use of our time and energy – we live a more relaxed, productive life. In zen-speak, this is referred to as the experience of no-mind. For sports psychologists, the marriage of intention with instinct, intuition expressed through action/movement is called a peak state or flow-state.
zen in the Garden is an opportunity to spend time with Paul and Angie in an intimate, small group setting. This unique experience is only offered on rare occasions and now is your chance to live and learn with two masters for a day.
An Exploration of Instincts
What are instincts? Where are we in or out of touch with our instincts? Paul will show you ways to get back in touch with our natural instincts and use them in our daily lives. You’ll learn grounding and centering to help you feel the energies of six directions and the spirit-soul within your heart as a means of instinctual and intuitive guidance.
Breathing and Movement Practices
Harmonization exercises focusing on breathing and movement help to calm and center us individually, and as a group and to connect with Mother Earth and nature. From a state of inner-harmony, Paul will teach you how to connect with your soul for inner/intuitive guidance, so that you can work with your soul as we progress through the rest of the day.
Angie and Paul will guide you to connect with nature and use your instinct, intuition and soul guidance to find a special divination stone on the Heaven House property. You’ll then prepare and paint your stone to infuse it with your own spirit and consciousness.
Angie will show you how to use the shamanic method of nature divination and your special stone to get answers to your deepest, most important questions in life.
Join Paul and Angie Chek at our unique zen in the Garden workshop at the beautiful Heaven House property in Escondido, California for an amazing one-day experience. Paul and Angie both have a long history of working with meditative and shamanic traditions and practices, and have helped countless students of the C.H.E.K Institute, and their personal clients learn to use their instincts and intuition to live a more full, relaxed, well-rounded life.
All About zen in the Garden
Workshop Date and Time: Saturday 9th June, 2018 10:00am – 4:30pm
Times are approximate and may change. We recommend you arrive in San Diego on Friday 8th June and do not leave until Sunday 10th June to ensure you can fully participate in the workshop. The location is approximately 60-90 minutes from San Diego airport, depending on traffic so if you absolutely have to fly out on Friday evening, you do not want to book a flight leaving before 7:30pm. At previous Zen in the Garden workshops, many of the participants have gone out to dinner together after the workshop, continuing the growth and sharing experiences into the evening.
We enjoy a potluck lunch together at Zen in the Garden workshops included. You will be asked to bring a side dish, such as salad or vegetables, or a dessert. A main entree (chicken or fish) will be provided.
