The intent of this presentation is to put forth the Holy Ideas as the antidote to the ego-fixations and to elucidate the “oneness” of all that is through non-dual perception of reality.
Through spoken word, three crystal singing bowls,Tibetan brass bowl, small bells and mbira ( African thumb piano) a mood and tone is set for participants to be “in and down” and centered in a meditative state of consciousness. “Bare attention”,”presence”and “embodiment”are intended. The spoken meditation on the Holy Idea of each type is designed to show the unity behind the dualistic illusion of separateness.
Sonically Ron’s approach has been influenced by Deuter, Frank Perry, Henry Wolff, Nancy Hemmings and the ritual music of Tibetan Buddhism. The work of Helen Palmer, Sandra Maitri, A.H. Almaas, Russ Hudson and G.I. Gurdjieff have influenced the philosophic content of the meditation. Ron is grateful for his teachers: Sivananda Valentina for grounding him in the spiritual life; Richard Francis for the perennial teachings of mysticism; and Debbie Ooten for embodying the Enneagram and empowering him in his heart’s desire.
It is his hope that attendees come to “know” directly the Holy Ideas as living archetypes of the reality that underlies all illusion.
