6 month Retreat & Training offered by The Ishaya Foundation Ascension is for anyone, anywhere, anytime:
The Ancient teaching and practice of the Ishayas' is Universal and offers so much to all who use it as their personal practice. Because of that, people from all walks of life, all beliefs, all religions and non-religions can practice and benefit from it. For the Ishayas' Ascension has it's foundation in the simple Truth; it's techniques are based in Praise, Gratitude, Love and Compassion.
Over the past 29 years that this teaching has entered back into our world, thousands have learned. And throughout the years several common approaches have revealed themselves as the various angles of life are experienced by the many... seeking the ONE.
I would like to address three of the most common approaches:
1) Relief from Stress.... As stress dissolves and releases from the nervous system with Ascending, one can have a clearer, more objective outlook on life. With less stress, life becomes more enjoyable, and efficient. Life improves on all levels, in all areas. 2) Meditation ... Ascending can and does raise consciousness. It is often considered similar to a Meditation.. however is so effective and natural, it can be done with eyes open during activity as well. With the simple techniques of the Ishayas' Ascension, one can not only release stress from the nervous system, but as stress dissolves and with proper guidance, both focus and resonance begin to develop as the awareness turns back upon it's Self. Awareness expands to realize the power of individual Choice. Choice then leads one towards or away from the goal of returning self to Self; awareness back to it's Source(Ascendant).
Ascension offers the tools to direct the mind inward to discover more of this by leading one's thoughts and awareness back to the Source (Ascendant). The Choice for the practice (Ascending) combined with the choosing to become more aware of That, the Source (Ascendant)...develops a relationship with That. Life then naturally begins to align with fulfilling that desire, returns to the present moment, and is lived from the power of Divine Choice, returning one's awareness to the Ascendant and their actions to the fullest aspect of the (S)self.
3) Prayer. The techniques themselves, when used properly allow one to re-cognize the Divine aspect of self. As with any prayer, the purpose and goal is to commune with God for love, support and guidance. Whether its in times of crisis, or simply a daily practice, prayer has its commonality amongst all religions, in the desire to live with God. Bringing one closer to God, the Ascension techniques open one to receive from the love of God the Divine that is always here, even when least deserved. Ascensding builds a relationship between the mundane and the Divine. Practicing Ascension faithfully is similar to prayer without ceasing, for each technique in and of itself is a tool, (a prayer) used to "re-unite" our awareness with that of the Beloved, the Divine, the Love of God. Taking the time from your active world to turn inward and discover and explore more of this is the greatest gift one can give themself in this life. This particular Retreat is designed for the committed Ascender. It is a rare opportunity to set aside all the activities of the world, to retreat, turn inward for a longer, constant period of time such as offered within this 6 month event. It is a time to set down and turn off all devices and refrain from daily social activities; a time to set aside all business needs and prepare them to be supported for you, while you are away; and also a time to let loved ones know you are always there for them should the need arise, but that finding support in those that are nearby and there with them during your time away . For anything you can do in preparing your world both inside and out for support of you during this time will help YOU gain the MOST of your time on retreat.
This time is short and is over fast, and to gain the MOST from it is to commit first to your choice to do it, then, set up your support from home and work... to really explore and find the most important point you are doing this to find..... YOU. "The power of life that stems from inner strength, is incomparible".
Whether your approach is one of finding the benefits for your life, Meditation, or using Prayer to connect with God, this 6 mo. Retreat offers ample meditation-prayer time, combined with further study of the understanding of practice of Ascending, meals, stretching and meetings to assist in furthering your practice, opening awareness to expanding consciousness.
Taking this 6 month Retreat is also a requirement for one who desires to become a teacher of the Ishayas' Ascension and although it is optional on the event, those that do wish to teach will be trained how to teach others in a study program the final month of the course. Those that do not desire to teach will continue the program through the final month.
So having the basic needs of day to day life supported, accomodations, meals, and the proper guidance to further your practice of Ascension combined with the time you have prepared and set aside for yourself to Ascend in an environment that supports you, this 6 month Retreat is a rare opportunity and greatest gift you can give yourself and your loved ones. For what better a gift to give those you love, than the living example of YOU living your life centered in your Self, allowing it to unfold through your own expanding consciousness and communion with God. This way of life; living in your highest good, creating and experiencing life as it truly is designed to be takes some practice.... and just a few tools:
1) First and foremost your active CHOICE 2) an effective tool and meditative-prayer practice to turn the mind inward, to rise beyond the thinking level and discover what is beyond beliefs..... 3) An awareness of what's REAL, Eternal and Unchanging... aka the Source of all that is created, 4) A desire to re-unite the lower individual self with the Higher Universal Self and truly.... KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
Its quite a simple path, with only one direction... inward, and one important point... and that point is found within YOU! ~ Ishaya
