Sunday, January 25 from 10 am - 1 pm
Peter Matthew Bauer & Rudolph Bauer PhD
This seminar will explore the relationship between meditation, myth and symbol. We look at the importance and use of meditative awareness for transformative experience, and the capacity for a cosmology based in archetypal and astrological language to both illuminate and direct such moments. The seminar will be experiential in practice with meditation centered on the great archetypal structures of the planets, those which inform both the outer world and our inner psyche. Rudolph Bauer will lead the meditation and a discussion of meditative awareness and the multidimensionality of our experience. Peter Matthew Bauer will explore archetypal cosmology with the transformational principle of the planets as the great mythic doorways into these different dimensions of our intrinsic awareness.
The seminar will take place at the Washington Center For Consciousness Studies. The cost is $30.00. Please pay the morning of the workshop.

We both hope and wish that the wonderful qualities of the innate field of awareness can be experienced directly and immediately in your home…And why not? The same center is within you and within us. In the Argentinean author Jorge Luis Borges’ short story, “The Aleph”, a man discovers that the center of the universe is located in his own basement. This center point gives its beholder access to the oneness of the field. The Aleph point is the center, and all the centers are completely interconnected at the subtle level of the field of consciousness. Thus meetings can be direct, unmediated and consequently, inside to inside…self to self.Co-directors: Rudy Bauer PhD and Sharon Bauer MSN

More about the archives
The archives are video streamed seminars and audio seminars that contain many hours of the meditation seminars as well as professional psychotherapy and healing seminars. The awareness field meditation seminars reflect awareness field meditation based on Dzogchen teachings and also at times elaborating the supporting views of Kashmir Shavism, early Gnostic Christianity, Western Phenomenology and Yan Xin Qi Gong. The healing and psychotherapy seminars focus on the awareness field as elaborated through Dzogchen teachings and western phenomenology. The special events seminar reflects Dzogchen Mahamudra retreats and interviews with healers and psychotherapist who work within the field of awareness. The special events audio section contains numerous psychotherapy training seminars on existential psychotherapy, gestalt psychotherapy, contemplative psychotherapy, psychoanalytic intersubjective experience, and Winicott’s transitional space and relatedness understanding. There are seminars on the phenomenology of awareness that integrate Dzogchen awareness teachings and western phenomenology into the context of relational psychotherapy.
