Offered as a ‘companion-group’ to the Red Tent, this group is geared towards all men looking for an opportunity to connect, bond, & support one another to consider what it takes to become men of higher consciousness--respectful, gracious, self-contained, sensitive, wise, aware, potent, open-hearted, conscious of our word, and committed to our higher selves. The group is run on a by-donation basis so that it can remain sustainable, in this way the financial responsibility to keep the group alive will be shared by the collective.
The circle we create together will be a safe sacred space to become vulnerable, in this way the circle is open to men from all walks of life and all religious backgrounds or lack thereof. We all commit to leaving our egos at the door along with any judgmental tendencies
The group is facilitated by Oren who has a background in Psychology, Education, and Yoga/meditation instruction. Oren’s aim is to create a climate of group consciousness and a safe space for participants to mentor each other – an empowering process for all parties. This will be created in part by including a dimension of group-meditation to help align everyone with their higher selves and true identity.
Discussion topics can be emerging from participants’ personal experience or drawn from pre-planned options. Oren will maintain leadership in terms of keeping topics and discussions aligned with the groups’ purpose, while also following the flow of leadership as members mentor each other. The group will phase through discussion & sharing, Kundalini Yoga as given by Yogi Bhajan aimed specifically at men such as "evergreen exercises for men's health" & the "Kriya to build yourself to act not react”, live music - along with the opportunity to subsequently participate in live music making with drums, percussion, or other instruments (if you play an instrument yourself – bring it!)
Join us to dialogue, share, chant, make music, get in touch with our physical & spiritual selves, and support one another on the path of becoming & being conscious men recognizing that through the critical mass effect we can influence the collective consciousness.
ABOUT YOUR GUIDE:
Oren Selahhas been a spiritual seeker & practitioner since the age of sixteen. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the 70’s-80’s, attending a Jewish Day school, visiting the numerous spiritual bookstores, and discovering the power of music and sound vibrations formed the backdrop for his life and spiritual path. Oren relocated away from Los Angeles when he was 19, in 1992. He found it very challenging to live in a busy city environment being a highly sensitive empathic person. Over the next 25 years he delved into a wide range of spiritual practices.
Milestones include being a student of Raja Yoga meditation under the guidance of Alice Bailey’s Arcane Correspondence School between 1995 – 2000, and Kundalini Yoga teacher training in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan under the guidance of the Portland Oregon 3HO community. Oren has had many profound, life-changing, experiences through the processes of meditation and spiritual practice.
