Description

What is the Attention Training & Realignment program?

The Attention Training & Realignment program is a seven step method to train the attention to shift away from thought patterns to the stillness of being conscious or to positive thought patterns. Through these techniques, gradually a person can gain more control and freedom to use the mind in productive activities rather than wasting time in overthinking and negative thought patterns. It also opens up the possibility of discovering the true nature of the self, which is also described as self-realisation.

The seven steps of the Attention Training & Realignment program are:

1. PCA : Presence centred anchoring (Spending time in the presence of an expert practitioner/master for clarity of mind, deep insights and constant reminders to stay in the present)

2. EPIC : Enquiry based Program for Intellectual Clarity (Self enquiry based intellectual understanding of how the mind works and how to transform the mind)

3. SMTDS : Subconscious mind training during sleep (training the subconscious mind through powerful subliminal affirmations by listening to an expert master’s audio recording)

4. SMTWA: Subconscious mind training while awake (training the subconscious mind through powerful self affirmations/mantras)

5. BCAT : Being Centred Attention Training (Practice of bringing attention back to the present moment through our techniques. Practice being alert like a cat)

6. MPS : Mental Pattern Shifting (Learning how to shift the attention from negative thought patterns to positive patterns through gratitude)

7. AAIS : Attention Absorption in Inner Silence (Learning how to let the attention shift from mental voices to bliss of inner silence)

This retreat takes place in the foothills of the Himalayas, where high energy supports the introspection journey and access to higher realms of consciousness.

During the retreat, you will have the option to spend time in silence, to disconnect from devices and to practice intermittent fasting to help you connect with your inner silence.
