The 40-month Project
From Awareness of the body to Consciousness of our essence
Join me in this 40-month long project in which we explore the different dimensions of our Being. The project is divided into 5 segments, each lasting 8 months. In these segments we focus on different aspects of our being:
- the body,
- the mind,
- our energies,
- the intellect
- and our spirituality.
Each 8-month long segment is subdivided into 32 instructions. For example, in the first 8 months we explore the body, using a set of instructions for each of the 32 weeks. . Each weekly instruction will have a theme that guides your exploration in a particular way. I will begin by offering some simple suggestions that will help you to become aware of your body. Then, in the following weeks, I will build on these experiences and will guide you to a deeper understanding. In this way we will move slowly first through the physical body and then through the other four dimensions of our Being - thus carefully exploring what constitute us as a person and perhaps catching the first glimpses of what is called 'enlightenment'.
Why a 40-month project?
Enlightenment is a daunting project. The traditional definition of enlightenment ('to awaken to the ultimate truth by which man is freed') points to the fact that this can take a lifetime. If you want to engage in the search for this truth the question often arises 'where do I begin?'
This structured 40-month long journey gives you a way in. It supports you in finding your path. In the end you will have to walk that path on your own, but the hundred sixty weekly instructions presented here will give you some guidelines for the first hundred miles of the way.
