  • Integral Group Yoga Session: ‘I’ Am...Experiencing New Consciousness

    with Anton Grosz, PhD

    Date: 10/20/2019

    #

    New Consciousness, the next step in human evolution, is the awareness that although physically we are separate and unique, the “I am” we each feel inside is actually the same Universal “I AM.” At our very core, we are truly One. Consistent with modern science and ancient religion, New Consciousness is both the key to world peace and easily reachable through Integral Yoga practice.

    This will be the second of four ground-breaking Integral Group Yoga Practice Sessions CIF will offer once each quarter during the coming year. The program will not be a lecture about Integral Yoga and New Consciousness, but a real-time opportunity to actually experience this advanced and evolved way of being from the inside out. We hope you take advantage of the opportunity. No prior study or practice is necessary to participate, only an open mind and a desire to be a positive force in humanity’s future.

    Anton Grosz, PhD, has been a practitioner and teacher of Integral Yoga and New Consciousness for over 40 years. His focus is the experiential mode of this evolutionary way of being and the importance of its real time application for individuals, humanity, and the very future of our planet.

  • The Dynamic Enneagram

    with Alzak Amlani, PhD

    Date: 10/27/2019

    #

    The Enneagram is an ancient system exploring the relationship between personality and soul. It helps us see our own ego fixations and essential qualities.  It also offers a map of the transformative process that spiritual life is.  This talk will focus on how the various struggles such as doubt, indolence, self-deceit and more, as well as divine gifts of unity, courage, love, compassion and the like are a part of all of us. By understanding the movement among different reactions, patterns and realized aspects, we can experience ourselves as fluid beings who can open to and inquire into any experience as a doorway to deeper truth and freedom.

    Alzak Amlani, PhD, is a counseling psychologist in San Francisco and Palo Alto and a core faculty member in the Integral Counseling Program at California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). He has been working with the Enneagram for over twenty years personally, clinically and more recently in his Transpersonal Psychotherapy Course at CIIS.

  • Reflections on 9 Months in Thailand

    with Elliott Isenberg, PhD

    Date: 11/03/2019

    #

    Elliott is now ‘pregnant’ with ideas about the different cultural & Buddhist perspectives he confronted during his 9 month stay in the city of Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand. He will talk about how notions of Karma believed by the majority of the population in Thailand created a different way to experience reality.

    Elliott received his doctorate from the California Institute Integral Studies in 1983 after doing his dissertation on “The Experience of Evil: A Phenomenological Approach.” He traveled extensively in his youth, spending time in India at the ashram of spiritual teacher, Neem Karoli Baba.  Danish mystic Sunyata also influenced Elliott: he co-authored a book on Sunyata’s teachings. In his private psychotherapy practice in San Francisco, Elliott draws on both Eastern and Western perspectives, including a method of self-inquiry and transformation developed by Byron Katie.
