Anatomy of consciousness & consciousness therapy extension season 2021-22

We meet on seven Saturdays (and Sundays for those who wish) in Sydänmaa, Rovaniemi from 10 am to 19 pm. The dates of further training are 13-14.11 November; 15-16.1 January; 9-10.4 April; 4-5.6 June; 13-14.8 August; 17-18.9 September; 29.-30.10.

At the core of humanity is the desire for a happy and meaningful life. More and more of us have noticed that happiness springs from our own inner self in those moments when the stories, worries, expectations or wishes of our mind do not take our attention away from ourselves and this moment that we are experiencing right now.

Shakti yoga & meditation retreat
In the heartland 20.-22.5.

The ultimate goal of yoga is to recognize who we are 'behind' or at the 'core' of our body, emotions and thoughts - the Conscious Being. Asanas, or physical movements, increase the body's vitality, or prana, preparing and strengthening the body for the sitting exercise.

In Shakti Yoga, we awaken awareness and energy (shakti) in our body and mind through a combination of movement and sitting still. We use our body as an instrument for deeper self-awareness, also increasing the well-being and balance of body and mind. The theme of the retreat is 'sanctifying the body'. The body itself can be seen as a manifestation of shakti, and realizing and experiencing it as a sacred instrument is possible through various meditative and healing exercises.

Body and Heart Awareness, meditation and horse communication retreat
18.-19.6. 2022 in the Heartland

Horses are very sensitive creatures from whom we can learn a lot about ourselves and our relationship with ourselves. Being and working with horses teaches us to rest in our body and heart and value ourselves in the right way. When we respect ourselves from the heart and dare to take responsibility for our own life and thoughts, we are also able to guide the horses so that they are comfortable with us. For horses, we don't have to and can't act anything or take on artificial roles. We are allowed to be completely natural, which requires that we ourselves practice accepting our own incompleteness while still being ready for inner change and learning something new.

Nature meditation retreat
2.-8.7. 2022 in Luosto

Sydänmaa organizes another almost week-long nature meditation retreat in Luosto, which enables internal and external steps towards our inner self and on the other hand listening to and pampering our bodies in nature and with the elements of nature. Many of us feel a deep connection with nature, but do not realize that nature reflects our own Buddha nature, that is, the part of us that is always natural, calm and in harmony with all life. At the same time, our innermost being is also bubbling with joy, creativity and unconditional love. The fact that we can descend to being natural requires accepting our humanity and becoming aware of everything that is "glued on", such as the conditions or beliefs set by the environment or ourselves to be "the right kind."

Easter Heart Retreat
14.-17.4. 2022 in the Heartland

Easter is a time of year when the day has lengthened and the sun has risen again to nourish our bodies and minds. There is a lot of symbolism and archetypes associated with Easter. Its meaning is related to inner letting go and giving birth to something new.
When we want to walk the path of love, to be open and honest to others and to ourselves, we inevitably have to let go of many "own limits", self-centeredness and the pursuit of self-interest that prevent us from experiencing our true Self as the Spiritual Heart. The natural state of our consciousness is a flowing giving of ourselves.

A retreat of silence for a ski holiday
9.-13.3. 2022 in the Heartland

Silence in the meditative sense does not mean silence. It means a state of consciousness where external voices or mental stories and emotional experiences do not take us along, but we are able to remain aware in the midst of all experiences and not completely identify with or "drown" in our experiences. Silence is our own core essence, which we can experience when the observations of our mind do not capture our attention, but we get to stay "in the middle" of ourselves in a state of conscious being.

Descent into Christmas Peace Retreat 2021
18.-19.12. 2021 in the Heartland

The Christmas season sensitizes our hearts to feel the unique atmosphere that goes with it. In countries with a Christian tradition, even where Christmas is not associated with religiosity, more than any other celebration, it includes love and its various aspects as a theme. Love can manifest itself as giving, sharing, generosity or bringing light where it is especially needed. Authentic presence and resting in oneself are also important aspects of love.

"Talk about spirituality" - Aurinko Maa ry

Aurinko Maa ry has invited Leena to give a lecture and meditation in the "talk about spirituality" webinar series on November 16.11. at 19 p.m. Leena talks about "How can I live a life according to my soul's plan?"

Soul can be defined in many different ways, but in this context it refers to our deeper spiritual identity, the Self, whose fundamental nature is love and inner wisdom. The soul is the deeper layer of our consciousness that we begin to experience when we descend into the silence of our heart, behind the stories of the imagination and the mind and emotional states. When we live from our soul, we feel whole and life feels meaningful. We are in touch with our intuition and know how to act correctly. In this webinar we will discuss the soul and its aspects and do meditation exercises to strengthen the soul connection.

Conscious Presence with horses

Two wonderful horses, West and Matti, live in Sydänmaa. Part of the spiritual trainings is also combining heart and body awareness with conscious presence with the horses. Horses are sensitive to sensing our spiritual presence. With their help, we can train to strengthen our own ability to concentrate and the ability to be aware and mentally present, and thus also help horses to rest more deeply within themselves. Sydänmaa has also organized courses related to horses and body awareness in cooperation with the in-depth horsemanship trainer Noora Ehnqvist. With Noora's help, we have found a warm and soft way to communicate and live with horses.

In Sydänmaa, there is also the opportunity to practice presence on the back of a horse on forest trails in the form of nature riding. In Sydänmaa, horses are not seen as a hobby, but cooperation is done with them with the aim of improving the well-being of both humans and horses.
