Yes, I know there are small groups of ex-BKs doing "something" together, including meditating, at sometime or some basis in various countries. But I know not what.mr green wrote:I am sure there are others.
I think one also has to point a finger at leading ex-BK Robert Shubow, he of the Adi Dev translation and others, who is now a self-appointed Guru "Sat Yogi Shunyamurti" at The Sat Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. It appears to me to be a sort of upscale and artful commercial BK outlet that included BK tech - including an initiation to Shiva - but takes off and independently develops Gyan where the 'Technicolor-Meditation-and-Quotations-of-Great-Gurus-and-Thinkers' Wing of the BKWSU started. I want to write a little more about it later.
I'd really like to know why Robert bailed out of the BKWSU and went off to do his own thing? How could the BKWSU have lost such talent? With the backing of the BKs money machine, he could have been running the "BKWSU Natural Health Clinic and Spa Wing" by now. (I hate to give Jayanti or Mohini ideas at this point ... so remember where you read that first). Is this their own 7 Day Course?
The Sat Yoga Institute wrote:The Sat Yoga Institute presents a wholly updated version of the world's most ancient sciences of wellness, inner transformation, illumination, and liberation from the limitations and conflicts embedded in the unconscious ego.
They offer weekly advanced meditation courses, ongoing individual clinical psycho-spiritual sessions with a professional guide (to untie the unconscious egoic knots), monthly seminars (strenthen your thinking function and higher knowledge of the inner labyrinth), health and gourmet vegetarian cooking classes, and yearly fully-immersed seven day retreats at lovely and private natural settings.
The Sat Yoga Institute is dedicated to helping all beings achieve Liberation.
He does not credit the BKWSU on his links page but he does link to BK friendly promoters Free Meditations.The ancient science of Sat Yoga comprises a form of Self-enquiry, of meditation, and the practice of inner deconstruction of the many layers of the false self in order to achieve Liberation in life. As part of this work, we encourage the sustenance of a healthy lifestyle in accord with strict ethical parameters, in order to strengthen and protect our practice. And we teach a variety of different preliminary techniques in order to prepare the body and mind to be able to receive and contain the higher energies that we learn to attune to in our meditative practice. These techniques have been part of the Yogic path for many centuries and are of proven value.
The ultimate aim of Sat Yoga practice is the falling away of the ego and the complete realization of the One Self. This attainment is actually the beginning of the spiritual life, not its end point. Since we are already That, no techniques are necessary for this achievement. It is simply matter of removing the blinders, the veils of ignorance that occlude the pristine sublime nature of our timeless reality.
By learning to silence the chattering mind, to be fully present with an open heart, willing to accept the Great Mystery that is our Being, to live in boundless openness and playfulness, the grace of the Supreme Loving Presence comes to permeate our field of energy and consciousness. We become the natural embodiments of the supernatural Essence that all along we had been seeking.
We are That. Live the highest truth now, surrender the ego to the Presence that encompasses you, unite with the infinite loving power, and all blessings shall be delivered unto you. This is the true practice of Sat Yoga.
