As Your Inner Spiritual Fire Springs to Life
So You Become As a Sacred Candle...
Illumined with Your Inner Light,
Liberated From the Wax of Your Past
a Warm, Peaceful Presence
Around the world and throughout history candles (and fire) have always had a central place within a wide range of spiritual practices including prayer, meditation and sacred ritual. The candle has come to symbolise light, peace, harmony, purity and the pursuit of spirituality.
As we meditate on the candle we too start to transform, to fill with spiritual light and to radiate a warm, peaceful presence just like the candle. Over time our lives become filled with peace, health, stillness and wisdom.
The Candle Flame Course
Join us for various relaxation, visualisation and meditation practices based on the symbolism of the candle flame. Experience deep relaxation, an expansion of your inner radiance, lightness of being and peace of mind.
This style of meditation produces many benefits, including:
mental clarity and focus
Self-awareness and spiritual awakening
a profound, practical and enlightening spiritual philosophy
visualisation and meditation
In this course you will become skilled in three main techniques:
The Candle Asana - combining breath and gentle, rhythmic movement to create a state of relaxed vitality, upliftment, joy and peace. This energising practice makes for a great start to your day, as a preparation for meditation or to clear your body, heart and mind at the end of the day.
The Candle Journey - a lying down technique of relaxation and visualisation based around an imaginary journey up through the layers of the candle and into the light. Via this metaphorical imagery the student is able to access various states of deep relaxation, healing, and meditation.
The Candle Flame Meditation - a seated technique in which you ‘become’ a meditating candle, burning away your old wax and become illumined with your inner light. This practice creates stillness, peace, warmth, personal transformation and spiritual enlightenment.
In addition to these techniques you will learn:
Practical Tips and the Fundamental Principles of Meditation - to maximise the results you obtain through your practice, especially during the challenging initial phases of establishing a strong daily routine
Candle Philosophy - a profound and enlightening framework for understanding different spiritual philosophies, to understand your meditation experiences, to develop your own personalised meditation techniques and to integrate what you learn into your everyday life.
