By Dr. Wong Kai Ming

It’s important to have an inquisitive mind and always ask questions for an active, healthy brain! 

Our reality is only our perception bound by the limits held in our thoughts. As Tsung-Mi explains, “One does not realize that the objective world appears out of the delusion of one’s own mind.”

Meditation focused on higher resonance can allow one to elevate one’s spirit to higher dimensions. Easier said than done. “How to do…” is really the point. 

To go beyond, we can ask “What is Mind?” and “What is possible?” Cultivating an inquisitive mind – always seeking beyond all the limitations of our present state – spurs us to find that higher resonance.

Make yourself part of our ohana – our family! This community event is a great time to meet warm, inviting people. 

Our kumu (Hawaiian teacher) Malia Helela, sets the tone with an oli, a Hawaiian chant, pertinent to the topic. Our group-led conversation takes us a thought-provoking topic for discussion each week from the Still & Moving Center Almanac.  

In Sanskrit, Sat indicates Truth. The sangha is the group of students. We could translate Satsang as a gathering of Truth-seekers. In our Satsang we delve into uplifting quotes from all over the world and share valuable life experiences to gain moments of “Aha!” together.

 

Renée Tillotson

Renée Tillotson, Director, founded Still & Moving Center to share mindful movement arts from around the globe. Her inspiration comes from the Joy and moving meditation she experiences in the practice of Nia, and from the lifelong learning she’s gained at the Institute of World Culture in Santa Barbara, California. Still & Moving Center aspires to serve the community, support the Earth and its creatures, and always be filled with laughter and friendship!

Enthusiasm fills every class and event Renée leads. The motto: ‘Move your body. Still your mind. Find center. Find Joy!” motivates her daily life.

A second degree Nia Black Belt, Renée says, “Through Nia I realized that I was born to dance…and perhaps everyone is! Nia connects me to pure Joy. I aspire to extend that Joy into the rest of my life and share it with every student who steps into my circle. Nia embraces both the yin and yang energies, helping all of us to balance our natures. Nia serves as a moving meditation for me, as well as a chance to play like a child again! I like to think of my classes as invigorating the body and elevating the spirit.”

Engaged in an earnest, life-long spiritual quest, Renée assembles the Still & Moving Center Almanac each year, filled with inspirational quotes by everyone from the Dalai Lama to Dolly Parton. She loves taking part in conversations that merge philosophical, spiritual and scientific thought with a lifestyle of compassion.

The Gayatri Mantra

Aum bhur bhuvah svah

tatsaviturvarenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi

dhiyo yo nah prachodayat. Om.

 

AUM. In all three worlds – terrestrial, astral,

and celestial – may we meditate upon the splendour

of that Divine Sun who illuminates all. May its golden

light nourish our understanding and guide us on our

journey to its sacred seat. OM.

“The Gayatri invocation is an infallible means to self-transcendence…. Individuals may make some sort of inward affirmation of benevolence towards all that lives.Daily, replenished by the cool stream of insight that flows from the Spiritual Sun, one may actualize the Gayatri mantram with a deep resolve that will endure without wavering, releasing a mighty current of unacknowledged but incalculable benefit for the entire human family and indeed for all living beings.”    – Raghavan Iyer

Join us for a potentially transformative meditation on this mighty Sanskrit mantra, with time for spoken considerations of the practice.

All Welcome! All Levels.

See you there Beloved Beings!

Be Well.

Do All the Things.

With Love and Aloha,

What better way during challenging times to place our attention in the present moment than to connect with nature, letting our senses come alive? We can receive gifts in brief moments sensing the coolness of grass beneath our bare feet or the smooth or bubbly sensation of water across our palm as we trail our hand in a flowing stream. Our breath slows down, our hearts and minds relax, and the strong grip of stress/anxiety on our nervous system loosens. Simply focusing on one aspect of nature, we can train our minds to settle. We might experience the interconnectedness of all life by merely opening  ourselves to be in relationship with one thing in nature: Think tree- whisperer… snail-whisperer… flower-whisperer!

Lizabeth tells of a recent nature meditation experience: “I had chosen to connect with an unopened yellow lily bud. As I sat for several minutes engaging with this plant, I saw that despite some browning and peeling edges that reminded me of its impermanence,  it also seemed to display a complete and utter confidence and acceptance of itself, despite its marks of aging. Eventually, my mind wandered and I noticed boredom arising, but I brought my attention back, noticing this plant in greater and greater detail. When the meditation was over, I briefly turned away from the plant. Looking back at it about 5 minutes later, I saw that the bud had fully opened! 

“For a moment, I thought I must be looking at the wrong plant, but I recognized its features so well, I knew it was the same flower I had just been attending to. I gazed for a moment to my left, and in that very instant, the bud on a neighboring plant suddenly burst open, too! I felt such gratitude to have been able to witness the blossoming of a flower, and such tenderness and care for these lilies in my backyard that I had barely noticed before my meditation. Had I not been paying attention and made a connection with nature, I would never have witnessed that simple, yet profound moment.”

Each live, online session with Lizabeth will include a 15-20 minute nature-based, mindfulness meditation, followed by 10 minutes of optional sharing in community.  While you will ideally be able to sit outdoors in your yard or on your lanai, you can also do this practice indoors, perhaps sitting with a potted plant or pets, fish, or any object from nature, such as a stone, feather, etc. In truth, EVERYTHING is part of nature – even our cell-phones and computers came from the earth in the broadest sense! 

 

Lizabeth Kashinsky

Lizabeth has been passionately protecting Hawaiiʻs unique species and ecosystems throughout her 25 year career. She believes that cultivating loving kindness towards ourselves and the earth is one way to do this. Through guided meditations, yoga classes, and nature based workshops and retreats, she incorporates ways to deepen our connections to and love for the natural world. 

Lizabeth has most recently led the Ecosattva training at Still & Moving Center with Krista Hiser. Lizabeth has also worked in the field of conservation in Hawaii since 1994. She began practicing hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation in 2000. She discovered that these practices helped to still her active mind and recover from health challenges.  Lizabeth completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Honolulu in 2009 and has been teaching yoga ever since. She completed a mastersʻs degree in Ecopsychology in 2012 at Naropa University. An avid horse-woman, ocean lover, and hiker, Lizabeth feels most at home outdoors!

Join us for this specialty meditation guided by our instructor from the American Northwest, Miku Lenentine via our new Zoom room online!

In our sessions we will connect with Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion. As we journey through a guided 40-minute meditation, we explore different aspects of the Goddess as she dances at the Center of the Wheel: breathing in and being with the movement in the stillness and the stillness in the movement. She dances at the center of All Life and models for us how to do the same in our own lives. She invites us to move from and with light, love and compassion in each moment, as conveyed in her bodhisattva vow:

“Never shall I seek nor receive private, individual salvation. Never shall I enter into final peace alone; but forever and everywhere will I live and strive for the redemption of every creature throughout the world from the bonds of conditioned existence.”

Join in for all or part of these beautiful gatherings. Please mute your mic upon entering the Zoom room. All Welcome! All Levels.

Be Well.

This weekly offering gives spiritual seekers the opportunity to learn and share from the great wealth of the world’s wisdom traditions. Each week we will focus on one brilliant gem, a teaching to illuminate our minds and hearts.

Various cultures in all times and places have produced sparkling gems of inspiration – the crystallized essence of spiritual insight. In many cases we know something of the enlightened being – sage, seer, saint – who gave us that gem and lived his or her life accordingly. In all cases, these teachings have informed the lives of the tradition’s followers, bringing clarity to their daily decisions and depth to their meditations.

To begin each circle, one featured speaker will give a short presentation on a brilliant spiritual teaching from one of the world’s wisdom traditions, together with information on the Teacher who conveyed and embodied it.

The group will then take up the topic presented, with opportunity for free conversation and questions, wonderings and examples, of how we might apply this week’s teaching.

Moderated by Renée Tillotson, Director & Founder of Still & Moving Center, engaged in an earnest, life-long spiritual quest.

The class incorporates:

  • Meditation (dhyana)
  • Breathwork (pranayama)
  • Sun salutations (surya namaskar)
  • A combination of static holds and flows between poses (asana)
  • Deep relaxation (savasana)

We seek harmony in body, mind, and soul.

Please come to this once in a lifetime special event at Still and Moving Center Oahu with Bhagavan Das + Amulya Maa !

Three days of music and devotion to enliven your soul! One of the great 1960’s spiritual music icons, BHAGAVAN DAS journeyed to India before the Beatles and gained international recognition from Ram Dass’s book “Be Here Now”. Many people experience a heightened transformation from his chanting. He has played with The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Sting and many others. Bhagavan Das received initiation from his spiritual teacher Neem Karoli Baba, with blessings and empowerments from Anandamayi Ma, Ammachi, Baba Hari Dass, Kalu Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa and his Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhuapda.

Please come join us!

Baba Bhagavan Das

I left America for India in 1963 to find my guru. I was the first American to live in the jungle of the Himalayas as a hermit-sadhu. I was given the holy name of Ram by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I went off alone to the caves in the mountains to meditate. There I met Swami Chaitanya Prakashananda Tirth who gave me tapas to pray for God’s Grace. After a year of fasting, prayer and intense purification I met my Sat Guru, the Mahasiddha Neem Karoli Baba – who I lived with side by side for many years. He sent me to Anandamayi Ma to receive initiation from the Divine Mother.

Then one day, Maharaji sent me away towards Tibet to go deeper, deeper, and then beyond with the last living yogis from high in the mountain peaks of Tibet and Nepal. During my time with the Tibetan yogis, I met and lived with Lama Kalu – the guru of the 16th Karmapa. He gave me the Mahamudra transmission, mind to mind. I received the Clear Light of Primordial Awareness from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche and then the Vajra Yogini transmission directly from the 16th Karmapa in Sikkim.

I lived with Yogi Chen who explained all the details to me in English in his hermitage in Kalimpong. When on pilgrimage to the holy Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, I met Richard Alpert who was to become Ram Dass after I brought him to Neem Karoli Baba.

I am here now by the grace of my Sat Guru Neem Karoli Baba. He led me to my precious beloved, Amulya Maa, who is always guiding me on the true path of Bodhichitta with her crystal clarity, ancient wisdom and pure love. This is It for Now.

Sarava Mangalam

Amulya Maa

Amulya Bodden aka Amulya Maa has been a practitioner of yoga and meditation for more than 25 years, and dream yoga since she was a little girl. Mystic, muse and lover of life, Amulya is an advanced Vipassana meditator and bhakti yogini who deepens her practices through the Tibetan Buddhist Vajrayana lineage.

As an alchemist, writer, teacher and shamanic healer, Amulya facilitates transformational healings and heart path awakening through spiritual and intuitive guidance. She pierces deeply into the real grit, while transmitting a refined sense of subtleties – identifying where Self-Love is needed for purification and where the Light of awareness is most needed to integrate shadow material. One of Amulya’s greatest gifts is the ability to hold crystal clear presence and offer her clients razor sharp reflections as they journey through life-changing initiations and strip into the raw and grounded remembrance of their Authentic Self.

Amulya is an advanced craniosacral therapist, death doula, meditation instructor and soul friend. Her MS degree is in Organizational Psychology, grounding her ability to work with all people, not just those on the yogic path.

Amulya Maa has partnered with Baba Bhagavan Das and together they cultivate a sacred space for progressive holistic healing on all levels along with the conscious reactivation and realignment of creative energies. They offer devotional chanting, yoga workshops, healing retreats and powerful online sessions.

This class is for de-stressing and re-balancing our energy. This combined yoga practice will renew and ready us for a calm evening, good night’s sleep and clear day ahead. Our Restorative Yoga will use a variety of postures supported with props, such as chairs, bolsters, blankets and straps to experience a deep body relaxation. We move our spine in all directions, alternately stimulating and soothing our organ systems. We reverse the effects of gravity, returning the fluids to our upper body and enhancing heart function. Reducing muscle tension and fatigue, as well as improving digestion, we provide a supportive environment to relax the body. We end with Yoga Nidra as a very powerful way to still the mind. It is not necessary to concentrate. Simply listen to the instructions, follow them mentally, and refrain from sleeping. Yoga Nidra can calm the mind and elevate our spirit.
