Karlos draws from both contemporary and shamanic methods of healing and is particularly influenced in his approach by transpersonal psychology, sacred geometry, herbalism, mysticism and mythology. His initiatory journey into the art of Future Self Dreaming has been signposted by synchronicity and guided by the light of the Morning Star (Venus). In the process of training to become a facilitator of the Ancient Egyptian Mystery School, known as the "Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life", he received a myriad of initiatory experiences that largely involved the awakening of Kundalini, a process also known as the activation of the rainbow serpent light body. This practice is known in Mayan/Toltec/Aztec lineages as the teachings of the plumed serpent, known as Quetzalcoatl or Kukulcan. Karlos is passionate about assisting people to navigate and integrate the effects of awakening this life force energy within the body through counselling and ceremony, so as to awaken deeper communication with their Higher Self, otherwise known as the Future Self Dreaming. • Post Graduate Diploma of Counselling - Australian College of Applied Psychology • Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming • Master Practitioner of Eriksonian Hypnosis • Previous Ambassador for "The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life" & "The Template -A Holonomic Model of Transcendence" • Practitioner of Hawaiian Kahuna Bodywork and Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy
Rooted in Chinese Zen philosophy, the tea ceremony is a spiritual process, in which participants remove themselves from the mundane world, seeking harmony, presence and inner peace. The "way of tea" becomes a beautiful practice in connecting with the elemental world, cultivating mindfulness, simplicity and humility. An outline of the history and philosophy of tea ceremony will be given, accompanied with the experiential component of the ceremony itself.
