                         Ascension Meditation Teaching with Ishtar Ishaya                           

Saturday, May 18 & Sunday, May 19, 2019

Ascension is a simple, effortless, and powerful practice that frees us from the bondage of habit and conditioning by bringing our mind from the busy surface to the profound silent depths. The techniques of Ascension, called Ascension Attitudes, utilize Praise, Gratitude, and Love to charm the mind. Instead of attempting to force the monkey mind into submission, Ascension gives it ‘ideal bananas,’ tapping into the natural tendency of the mind to move toward greater pleasure. The practice is done with both the eyes closed and with the eyes open 2 or 3 times a day.  Pure Awareness, Samadhi, the Now, or the Peace that Passes all Understanding is already within us, right here, right now. With the right approach, all we need to do is simply relax into it. We need not spend a lifetime attempting to improve ourselves to reach this state ‘Water the roots and the leaves automatically prosper.’ We need only connect with the vast Presence already inside us, and the flowers of our life will effortlessly blossom.

In the weekend class, we will learn how to practice the first four techniques of Ascension, commonly called the First Sphere. The course will flow between instruction in the practice, group meditation, one on one instruction, talks on various aspects of spiritual unfoldment, and plenty of time for questions and answers. The class typically runs from 10 am- 4pm on both days.

About Ishtar, international teacher of Ascension Meditation: After a childhood colored by mystical experiences and a transformative NDE at age 13, Ishtar became an Ishaya monk at age 18 and began teaching the Ishayas’ Ascension meditation shortly thereafter. More about the practice and/or Ishtar can be found at www.ascension-meditation.com. In addition, one can check out his recent Buddha at the Gas Pump interview
