Free Introductory Lecture
These talks, usually about an hour in length, are an opportunity to learn more about Ascension in person with sufficient time to ask as many questions as you would like. My favorite way to go about this is actually fairly informal and very often involves a tea-house and a pot of tea.
First Sphere Workshop
The first series of techniques, called the First Sphere, are typically taught over the course of a weekend (about 12 hours total) in order to ensure sufficient time for practice and plenty of individual attention. Other formats, such as weekday classes and individual sessions, are most certainly available, but this one is usually the easiest to organize and in general the best option.
The Course Fee
The course fee may differ from country to country. In the United States, the course fee is $300.00 USD. In addition to the actual course, that fee includes the option of 2 extra check-in sessions either in person or via Skype.
The practice is profoundly simple and powerful. An investment in learning it is an investment in a lifetime of peace, joy, and inner cultivation. I am overjoyed to travel near and far to teach courses. If you or a group are interested in learning Ascension feel free to contact us via email at ishtarishaya [@] hotmail.com.
There are teachers and teaching organizations scattered all over the world teaching the same techniques in essentially the same way. Once you've attended a First Sphere course with any of them, you are able to attend the same course for free with any other teachers. If you live far away from me and am having trouble connecting with people in your local area, I'd be glad to connect you with anyone I might know in your area.
Ascension retreats provide the perfect environment for unwinding into profound relaxation, diving deeply into the depths of one’s Consciousness. They provide the space to make a quantum leap in growth, providing you with the time, space, and guidance to sink ever deeper into your own True Nature. They last from 3 days to 6 months, and consist of lots of time practicing Ascension with the eyes closed, yoga, wonderful food (that you didn’t have to cook!), personalized instruction, and great company. The amount of permanent transformation that transpires, even in a short retreat, has never ceased to astonish me. The old Society for Ascension brochures once touted that a 3 day retreat could clear the nervous system as quickly as 6 months of regular practice. While a lofty statement to say the least, it may not be far off the mark.
