Course – Awaken Your Self-healing Potential
The subtle human body-field pervades our entire body, and becomes more focused in particular locations when we feel unsafe or excited. In Ayurveda these locations are referred to as vital points or marmas. And what influences these points is referred to as physical sensation. This is how what we feel is externalized through 108 vital points or marmas as sensation.
Physical sensations usually make us feel limited in one way or another. And because our mind cannot make any sense of what we feel or sense, we try to mentally and emotionally manipulate our inner world as though it were an object. This manipulation, through fear, sadness and rejection, creates mental, emotional and physical unrest and unbalance, and distorts our perception of reality, which affects the way we communicate with ourselves and others. In Ayurveda this is referred to as pragyaparadha, or the distortion of our perception of reality, or simply “intellectual error”.
Through applied consciousness, we present a way to awaken your conscious awareness and emotional intelligence, while through vitality or marma therapy you learn to touch 108 vital points to calm your nervous systems, gain mental clarity and observational capacity to integrate your spirit, mind and body, as a whole. Consequently you can experience unknown levels of flow.
You will learn to:
1) Achieve mental clarity – as you learn to recognize what keeps you from effectively managing your attention, you will achieve higher levels of awareness, receptivity and productivity.
2) Enhance your ability to observe – you will learn to expand your awareness, resulting in a mental state that allows you to readily detect and adjust to internal and external changes.
3) Achieve total integration – learn about the anatomy and locate 108 vital points or marmas distributed in the body. Learn about their connection with different organs, their functions, and with how you think and feel. And bring about greater levels of cohesion.
4) Enhance self-healing – systematically and consciously touch 108 vital points to elicit healing responses on mental, emotional and physical levels.
5) Supportive practices – learn how to support this integration process through subtle oil massage or by gently rubbing essential oils on the vital points.
Through this awareness-raising process we gradually grow towards a sense of freedom, interconnectedness, wholeness, but also towards our life-purpose, balance, flow and happiness.
About Carlo Monsanto
Carlo has contributed to fundamental, theoretical and experiential research and development in the fields of Ayurveda and applied consciousness learning during more than twenty years, to establish a base for the development of conscious culture.
Carlo studied health sciences and – Ayurvedic medicine. He embraces both ancient and modern traditions. As a researcher and educator he pioneered a novel ayurveda-based field called applied consciousness learning. He contributed thereto through fundamental, theoretical and experiential research relating to the nature of conscious experience. Applied consciousness learning is a whole-person learning system, which cultivates a learning-by-doing that investigates subjective, intersubjective and interpersonal aspects of communication. To this end he incorporated various diagnostic approaches and a unifying theory. In 2011 Carlo published the first edition of the “Applied Consciousness Science, A Reference Guide”, wherein he described many of the facets of the practice of applied consciousness learning.
Since 2008 Carlo and his partners have been actively developing and applying an ever more comprehensive spectrum of programs based on applied consciousness learning. He currently focuses on the cultural advancement of conscious communities in different countries. He applies these skills in healthcare as well as in the corporate sphere, educational institutes and in lifelong learning environments. Moreover, he currently focuses on developing Aradne Institute, an academic institute with and without walls. The programs which he has co-developed, support individuals and groups in cultivating and sharing self-awareness, bringing forth a higher degree of self-organization and internal cohesion. This in turn supports individuals and groups in developing the capacity to share a commonly sensed intelligence. A basis for the emergence of conscious community.
