Although meditation is usually associated with spiritual practices within a tradition such as Buddhism or Yoga, it has much wider applications. Dan Waldman will show how we can tap into this powerful universal tool to develop mindfulness, physiological body control and concentrative power. He will also share his own experiences with meditation as a healing force through energy transfer, providing relief from the side effects of cancer treatment, and working with the terminally ill.
Dan Waldman has been meditating
for many decades and has explored a wide range of spiritual paths. His broad
and varied life experiences include working as a horse trainer, contractor,
farmer, stockbroker, medic, martial arts instructor and wood carver.
G.I. Gurdjieff brought an ancient teaching of spiritual transformation to the West known as “the Fourth Way.” It seeks a harmonious development of our physical, emotional and mental functions by consciously working with the challenges of everyday life, rather than withdrawing from the world. The presentation will explore some of the central concepts of Gurdjieff’s psychological teachings, including essence and personality, self-observation, conscious attention, states of consciousness and stages of spiritual development.
Douglas Staley is the President
of LIGHT and has studied Gurdjieff’s Fourth Way teachings for more than
four decades. In collaboration with Ernie Strauss, he has developed a website
devoted to the exploration of Gurdjieff’s life and spiritual impact: “Gurdjieff
and the Fourth Way: A Critical Appraisal” (www.gurdjiefffourthway.org).
George Gurdjieff created a set of Movements to "wake up" his students, bringing to consciousness the automatic ways of thinking, feeling, and moving. This presentation will include information about the context of the Movements within the Fourth Way tradition, the way they are currently practised around the world and in Winnipeg, as well as the opportunity to experience this practice directly.
Melody Newcomb was first introduced to the Movements in 1996 when Marna Clarke brought the practice to Winnipeg through the Inscape community and their work with the Enneagram. Melody started a group here in Winnipeg in 1998 that continues to meet weekly. She has studied with teachers in Alberta, California, New Mexico, West Virginia, Germany and Greece. She has attended the International Retreat since 2003 and has served on the Organizing Committee since 2010.
A small group meets in Winnipeg to practise movements on most Thursday evenings and one Saturday afternoon a month. They welcome anyone who would like to participate. For further information, contact Sandy Landin at 204-885-4644 or email@example.com
