This introductory Master Class is open to anyone who wants to learn touch the way Dr. Sutherland taught it, and revive the ancient practice of laying on of hands, which 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 based on the ancient meditative principle of 'innerness' practiced for thousands of years as "laying on of hands."
By engaging a daily regular meditation practice, you access your inner-body wisdom that creates the body, heals the body, and evolves consciousness.
Every morning of class, we sit in meditation to build our strength of presence so we can access the 'unerring potency' which is the power that makes the body.
You will learn specific hands-on contacts, only offered as a fulcrum of stillness, that connects to the potency in the body. Stillness holds the power of consciousness that distributes the potency and theforces of health and wholeness to every cell in the body.
You will receive a comprehensive take-home study guide that contains meditation practices and the detailed photos of the contacts that you learn in class.
In this Master Class, you take full responsibility for the evolution of your consciousness.
You complete your take-home practices at your pace to integrate the essence of Master Class 1.
Charles' detailed Study Guides show you ways to 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 the powerful exercises you learned in class to strengthen your will, cultivate grounding and centering, and provide you with a safe path for cultivating an unwavering presence of stillness.
Absent enquiry means you refrain from meaning-making - and that includes the biodynamic tides - instead, you learn to be with whatever arises amid ‘don't know.’
You also consciously inhabit your inner-body space with sensing presence, repose in the self-existing radiance of your heart field, and bask in your Eros that pulses in the pelvis.
In your pelvic 'seat' of repose, amid 'don't know,' you enjoy the Potency of Love. This sublime inner guidance leads you to the places you touch on your recipient and for how long, ... all this is based on the qualities of the potency that express sensuous tones in your inner-body atmosphere.
IF you remain non-efferent, the unerring potency becomes your constant unbroken inner guide, which connects you to the recipient's bodily wisdom - both of which are united with the Wisdom of the Whole.
In Master Class 1, we navigate efference, which creates a multitude of practitioner hindrances that prevent the fundamental disposition of neutral. Without realizing neutral, we cannot contact the tides or Pure Breath of Love. Click Here For Practitioner Hindrances
Navigate the Shadows that Prevent the Evolution of Consciousness
Habitual efference invites the hypermasculine disposition to take over our will, which so weakens us that we are unable to integrate our Core Wounds. Our core wound shadows become evident when we efferently drive our presence out of our inner body sanctum to separate wholeness into parts.
The ego strategy begins in objectification, which creates separation that breaks the whole into parts in order to know. Then, we efferently enquire into each so-called part to understand it. For example, enquiring into the biodynamic tides to derive meanings 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 Erotic Wounds).
Hyper-enquiry into the ascending biodynamic tidal phenomena is efferent; it creates a body-mind split that prevents the descent of consciousness. This alienates us from our natural erotic state of bodily union with the sacred pulse that emanates from the pelvic center as the Divine Feminine 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, which is an empty void. This Stillness as Bypass recoils our consciousness away from realizing our natural state of repose within and we do not contact or realize the sensuous ocean of love that dwells in our inner body space (We dive deep into Enquiry, Stillness as Bypass, and Teacher 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 "Edenic" state of our body as a Sacred Vessel of Love in which every cell is suffused with and emanates 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 when our attention is freely guided by Divine Feminine Will that pulses as the emanation of the heart's SA Node as Pure Breath of Love. Kashmir Shaivism calls this the pulse of the sacred tremor, or the Spanda.
When attention is not trapped by our ego-driven psychosomatic recoils, it is free to descend into Pure Breath of Love that suffuses (co-breathes with) every cell and emanates the sacred pulse of love.
As an aside, recoils are due to the ego's subconscious Subtle Core Terror that 'being with seemingly unbearable discomfort, trauma, the unerring potency, or love will cause 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 our 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 or shock is traumatic; this strategy needs to be exposed, illuminated, and transmuted by love.
Note: If this perspective is offensive, it is fruitless to enroll in any Dynamic Stillness School Classes.
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.
You cultivate ever-deepening capacities of being present to 'what is, as it is' amid any degree of intensity, intimacy, or paradox, which is the portal that leads to the descending phase of the evolution of your consciousness. When your consciousness descends, love escorts you on your Grail Journey to realize Pure Breath of Love.
One fruit of your inner repose is a fundamental trust in life that permits the relaxation of you consciousness down into the body. Freed from thinking that is fixated in the head due to fear, you drop into the sensuous inner-body space to repose in your heart radiance that is in union with Eros in the pelvis as your natural state.
