This introductory Master Class is open to anyone who wants to learn touch that heals the body and evolves consciousness.
The topics covered in this class are in my book Stillness Touch Chapters 1-5.
You will learn a non-medical touch that is based on the meditative principle of 'innerness.' By engaging a daily regular meditation practice you can access the inner-wisdom of the body that creates the body, heals the body, and evolves consciousness.
Each morning of class, we sit in meditation to build our strength of presence to access the 'Unerring Potency' the power that makes the body.
You will also learn specific hands-on contacts that access the potency stored in the midline, or central channel. Stillness holds the power of potency, which is the consciousness that distributes the forces of health and wholeness to every cell of the body.
You will receive a comprehensive take-home study guide that contains the practices and photos of the contacts that you learned in class.
In the Master Class you take full responsibility for the evolution of your consciousness.
Cultivating the fruits of the Master Class is your responsibility,
if that does not interest you, there is no point in taking the Master Classes.
You receive take-home practices that you can complete at your pace after class to integrate the essence of Master Class 1.
Charles wrote detailed Study Guides that show you ways to you dig deeper into all aspects of Stillness Touch.
Master Class 1 Emphasizes The Deep Cultivation Of The Practitioner's Fundamental Disposition
At home, you engage powerful exercises you learned in class that strengthen your will, cultivate grounding and centering, and provides you with a safe path for cultivating an unwavering presence of stillness.
Absent enquiry means you refrain from any meaning-making about the biodynamic tides; instead, you practice being with whatever arises amid ‘don't know.’
You also consciously inhabit your inner-body space with sensing presence and repose in the self-existing radiance of your heart field to bask in the Eros that pulses from the pelvis.
In this 'seat' of repose amid 'don't know' you enjoy a sublime inner guidance that leads you to the places you touch on your recipient and for how long, ... all based on the qualities of the sensuous tones in your inner-body atmosphere.
IF you remain non-efferent, an unerring inner guidance emerges from your wisdom of the body, which connects to the recipient's bodily wisdom - both of which are united with the Wisdom of the Whole.
In Master Class 1, we also navigate the hindrances to the fundamental disposition, and we expose the hypermasculine disposition that has infected human culture for 10,000 years amid the break-up of the hunter-gatherer period.
When the hypermasculine disposition takes over our will, it so weakens us that we are unable to integrate the Core Wounds. One of these shadows becomes evident when we efferently drive our presence out of its inner body sanctum to separate wholeness into parts. The ego does this by objectification, that creates separation, which breaks the whole into parts in order to know. Then, we enquire into each so-called part to understand it. For example, enquiring into the biodynamic tides to derive meaning from them keeps us stuck in the ascending plane of consciousness. This 'Spiritual Bypass' prevents the descent of our consciousness into the body (The Grail Journey Master Class 2 thoroughly explores the descent of consciousness and details the Grail Journey by which we integrate our Core Wounds).
Enquiry into the tidal inner-plane phenomena is efferent, which creates the body-mind split that prevents the descent of consciousness. This alienates us from our natural erotic state of bodily union with the sacred pulse of love.
Another shadow arises when the ego rises into the head, dissociates out of the body, and fragments our consciousness, thereby flinging awareness into a virtual stillness. This is known as Stillness as Bypass because it recoils our conscious awareness away from our natural state of repose within the sensuous ocean of love that dwells in our inner body space (We dive deep into Enquiry, Stillness as Bypass, and Reacher Codependence in the Bypass Master Class 3).
To repose as the presence of stillness amid the body's sensuous pulse of love, without recoil, gives birth to Criatura.
Criatura is the original state of the body, which is the Sacred Vessel of Love in which every cell is suffused with the Radiant Pulse of Pure Breath of Love.
The hypermasculine ego is terrified of this Divine Feminine power, so it demonizes Criatura and suppresses her sensuous expressions.
Criatura thrives only when our attention freely guided by Divine Feminine Will that pulses with the emanation of the heart's SA Node, which we call Pure Breath of Love. Kashmir Shaivism calls this sacred pulse the Spanda.
When attention is free, it is not hindered by ego-driven psychosomatic recoils; the descent of Pure Breath of Love can then suffuse every cell, which emanates a sacred pulse of love.
As an aside, recoils are due to the ego's subconscious terror that is created by the misperception that 'being with seemingly unbearable discomfort, the unerring potency, or love causes a repeat of our Core Erotic Wound.'
Recall that the Core Wound separated us from love at a tender age. Amid the release of shock from past trauma, or while strategies of recoil drive awareness away from a connection with the Sacred Pulse of Love in the body, we can encounter a Subtle Core Terror.
Yet, fear or discomfort does not mean we cease to allow love to flow into our wounds.
This is an important discernment: Being Present amid discomfort is fundamental to the evolution of consciousness.
An embodied, grounded center provides the safety that grants you the capacity to sense and remain present to your intense emotions during the release of electro-charged shock while your body is being suffused by Pure Breath of Love. Being present does not re-traumatize you.
Being reposed in your inner-body sanctum empowers your presence to be with intensity amid the release of shock: this strengthens your will.
A fear-based ego harbors a false belief that being present to intensity of shock is traumatic; this strategy needs to be exposed, illuminated, and transmuted by love.
Note: If this perspective is offensive, it will be fruitless to enroll in any Dynamic Stillness School Class.
In review, the Master Class Series depends on a practitioner's self-responsibility, and the commitment to cultivate a fierce-hearted, self-compassionate practice that builds the strength of your will, which becomes an unwavering presence of stillness.
Your subsequent ever-deepening capacities of being present to 'what is, as it is' amid any degree of intensity, intimacy, or paradox is the portal that leads to the descending phase of the evolution of your consciousness that escorts you on your Grail Journey to realize Pure Breath of Love.
One fruit of inner repose is a fundamental trust in life that permits the relaxation of consciousness down into the body. Freed from thinking fixated in the head due to fear, you drop into the sensuousness of the inner-body space and repose in your heart radiance that is in union with Eros in the pelvis as your natural state.
