Connect to the refreshing energies of Nature, through Gaia consciousness and create a holistic green lifestyle!!
The climate change crisis that threatens Earth and the very survival of humanity is also a spiritual crisis. It can’t be resolved by mere technological methods alone. Humanity has lost the intuitive spiritual connection and communion with Earth’s interconnected and interdependent web of life. This disconnection has prompted humanity to treat the Earth and other living beings as commodities resulting in the self-organising systems of the Earth consciousness initiating balancing measures to correct the damage and restore the living planet’s integrity. Global warming is a symptom of this process. The well-being of each individual and our future generations depends on our ability to evolve a green lifestyle in a spiritual way to regain the lost communion with Earth. So we need ways of spiritual evolution that can address this challenge of the 21st century.
My great-grandmother Karthyayani was a spiritual intuitive, channel and holistic healer. Her spiritual path had roots in ancient wisdom, Tantra, mudras (sacred healing hand gestures), channelling, integral intuition, dreamwork, the Goddess tradition and Earth spirituality. Since 1989, I have carried on the Light of that tradition and have also evolved it further by studying and exploring various spiritual and scientific systems. Currently it is called Integral Gaia Yoga.
It was the scientist James Lovelock who created the scientific hypothesis, which sees Earth as a self-organising super organism, and named it after the Greek Earth Goddess Gaia. But, it is not a new idea at all. Lovelock’s hypothesis, which remains within the scientific rationalist paradigm’s limitations, doesn’t recognise Earth as a sentient consciousness, because that is far beyond the comfort zone of conventional scientific dogma. However, the awareness of Earth as a Divine superconsciousness, existed on this planet in ancient times in many cultures all over the world.
Integral Gaia Yoga is a way of life that aims to manifest a collective consciousness to unite humanity with Gaia, the Cosmic consciousness and Transcendental Being. At this time of ecological crisis, Integral Gaia Yoga can help people to live in tune with Earth and promote Unity in Diversity, Peace, Love, Compassion and Joy.
Benefits of Integral Gaia Yoga
The core aspects of Integral Gaia Yoga
Integral Dimensions Meditation: This meditation evolves continuously to widen, heighten and deepen our consciousness integrally. It harmonises the mind and body to align with Gaia, the Cosmic consciousness and Transcendental Being. This meditation also balances our inner masculine and inner feminine aspects.
Integral Intuition: Ultimately, Integral Intuition helps us to create our individual and collective destiny in tune with integral evolution rather than making only predictions or prophecies. Integral Intuition involves all the myriad manifestations of intuitive, telepathic and instinctive knowing, integrated as one multidimensional integral whole.
Integral Gaia Healing: It is an integration of Integral Dimensions Meditation, Mudra Yoga, Reiki and many other modes of mind/body and spiritual energy healing. These aspects are used according to the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical requirements of healing in connection with the healing energies of Earth.
Innernet navigation and Integral Dreaming: In Integral Gaia Yoga, Innernet is the name given to a stage of awareness where the consciousness is neither in the waking consciousness nor in sleep. Accessing the Innernet helps us to leverage the power of dreams and intuition.
Integral Gaiaesthetics and Integral Intuitive Art: We can turn our daily life itself into an artwork by expressing our creative potential. Integral Gaiaesthetics shows you that Nature is the ultimate artist. By applying Integral Gaiaesthetics through Integral Intuitive Art, we can manifest health, develop our abilities, and resolve our personal, psychological, professional, social and spiritual challenges. Integral Intuitive Art is created by channelling Gaia consciousness through Integral Intuition.
Humanity as a species is an inseparable and integral part of Gaia consciousness and our very existence depends on the optimum functioning of this interconnected web of life. Integral Gaia Yoga attempts to help human beings attain their infinite potential without harming the planet and in communion with the spirit of the Earth.
