Stage 2 – the Deepening
On completing the Initiation stage of this journey you will have downloaded a new operating system into your consciousness. Many of the tools to bring your personal empowerment will be sitting in your pocket. Whether you use them or not is now up to you…
One way to really bring these more to life is through the Deepening process where the knowledge you have gained becomes digested into your being and emerges as your own wisdom, that can be expressed in your own words.
The deepening process takes you beyond the personal realms and into the unknowable as you undertake a shamanic death of all the conditioning that was given to you from outside and a rebirth as the deeper YOU emerges.
“The knowedgeable person lives with a question mark, and the person of awe and wonder lives with an exclamation point.” Osho
Normally humans move through 2 stages of knowing – the first where you do not know but are not aware of it (as a child); and secondly where you still not really know, but collect knowledge in order to believe that you know (our adult life).
Occasionally one will take a quantum leap beyond the norms and enter into a 3rd stage – where you realise that you cannot really know and that the joy is in the mystery. This retreat is for those called to take a leap beyond the ‘safety nets’ of the mind and let the bliss of existence pour into you.
The Path to Facilitation
The Awaken as Love Stage 2 Deepening process is only open to those who have already completed stage 1. It is also part of the path to becoming a facilitator in Awaken as Love.
Those who have completed stage 1 and 2 will be eligible to attend the Awaken as Love facilitators training – which will give you direct practice and feedback in teaching the structures of the Stage 1 initiation – this includes all the important details to mention, music and PDFs with the structures. Group evaluation and video feedback will be used to help bring out your inner guide. On completion of this, you will be able to co-teach the Awaken as Love Stage 1 process with a Lead Facilitator who would help guide you in your first facilitating role and you will be added to the Awaken as Love website as part of the expanding team.
The first AAL facilitators training will be held in Portugal in 2020 – more details will be announced about this soon.
