Energy Clearing Workshop

With Juno Burger

06 December 2020

Whenever we think of liberation, peace or healing it is about the absence of that from which we apparently suffer; no more thoughts, conflict, or pain. But what if true healing and peace do not come from the absence of what you think you suffer from but from the absence of that in you which is suffering?

Love is what we are; we don't get it from somebody, we can't give it to anybody, we can't fall in it or fall out of it. Love is our true Being.

We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious.

- Sri S. Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

"Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind."

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

- W.B. Yeats

What you really long for is a deep intimacy with your own experience—the deepest acceptance of every thought, every sensation, every feeling. And that cannot come from outside of yourself.

- Jeff Foster

“We’re fascinated by the words - but where we meet is the silence behind them.”

- Ram Dass

"While praising, may we of strong and steady limb enjoy the life given by the Gods Om Peace, Peace, Peace"

- Shanti mantra from the Rg Veda

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams, who looks insides, awakes.

Tell your body that it is strong, tell your mind that it is strong, and have unbounded faith and hope in yourself.

- Swami Vivekananda

Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.

- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Every emotion is connected with the breath. If you change the breath, change the rhythm, you can change the emotion.
