Spiritual Wake Up - "Guiding Individuals to that Special Place Inside Themselves"
Contemplation:
   The Activity of Mystical Consciousness
 

Helen Brungardt, Our first Spiritual teacher.  Helen, taught us yoga, meditation, contemplation, and various New Thought concepts.
 

                           Helen Brungardt 
 
 

Our first spiritual teacher, the late Helen Brungardt, offered a course on the awakening of individual Universal Consciousness.  Her book, Contemplation: The Activity of Mystical Consciousness, will be the source information for the Spiritual Wake Up class. 
 
            
In this class, you will go on a journey, to an awakening within your own Being, which will bring you to Self-discovery.  You will be focusing on bringing all your conscious activity to open the Heart Center or Middle Tantien, while you go about your day.  You will go to the very center of your being, to the very "Center of the Cyclone," to rediscover your true nature as the Great Stillness.  It is the place where Heaven and Earth meet.  Where all duality ceases to exist (yin and yang), also known as the Mystical MarriageIt will be a practice of No Practice where you are truly "Letting Go and Letting God" by Being.  A place infinitely inward, leading you infinitely outward.  In other words ... fasten your seat belt! 
 
 
You will be working on several different concepts for a 12 week period, taking each idea for a period of 2 weeks and bringing it down into your inner awareness at the "Core of Your Being."
 

Heart Centered Buddha ... moving into the Oneness of BEing.

All this message can do is reflect to you the answers for which you are looking – all answers ultimately come from within us.  During this dialogue between us, it is really up to the Spirit within us to bring forth the questions and answers. You and I participate in this activity, on conscious …

The Voice Within: How To Listen

As the momentum builds within us in our search for truth, we find ourselves motivated to go to lectures, to read books, to listen to new approaches and new teachers, and to examine new ways of looking at life.  As we progress in our discovery of the Truth of life, we hear that small, quiet voice within beginning to …

How Do We Adopt A Discipline?

I have found that many students have learned how to meditate, but few have learned how to be self-disciplined.  Those who do know how have discovered the way of discipline mostly by themselves.  There is much more to the mystical journey than meditation, even though meditation is a major key.  We also …

The Mystical Marriage

There is an activity that we must experience as individuals before we can begin to live completely in the mystical state and to express it on earth.  In the journey we take in meditation, we become aware of the content of our consciousness and we discover that we have to begin a process of self-discipline through which we learn what things to accept and …

Contemplation Of Reality

As the Holy Spirit moves through consciousness, it becomes defined as ideas and concepts, within the mental realm of our being.  It becomes defined in the emotional nature as love, joy, communion and freedom.  It becomes defined in the physical body as health, harmony and wholeness.  Contemplation is the awareness of …

Being A Disciple Of The Holy Spirit

A disciple of the Holy Spirit is an individual who is in submission to the Holy Spirit because he has accepted the Truth of his own being and has agreed to go through the process of surrendering.  The point of actual surrender comes when the individual no longer has any choice, because the Spirit has become more and more of the individual and the individual himself has become …
