Juan Li – 2023
Online classes by Juan Li
Dear follower of Juan Li,
We are happy to announce Juan Li will teach 3 online programs in 2023.
CENTERING YOUR MIND
HOW TO DEAL WITH CHANGE AND CONFUSION
The mind is the most powerful instrument of the creation. The purpose of all the great systems of personal development created throughout human history, have the single aim of developing the full potential of the mind as a platform to experience the real Self.
The first question to ask is, to what degree are you in control of your thoughts, beliefs, decisions you make and how you view the world?
There are two broad categories of people in the world right now: first are those who relinquish the management of their minds to others by giving up their capacity to think, judge and arrive at conclusions. They let the opinions of others become their opinion without investigating if the conclusions others have arrived are valid or not. The first category is made up of followers of other’s opinions. Those opinions can come from politicians, experts, scientists, TV presenters, social media “influencers”, gurus, swamis, lamas, preachers or Tao masters and teachers. There is a second category of people who don’t take the conclusion of others as final; instead, they investigate, gather information from many sources, and only after much investigation, arrive at conclusions of their own. The second group retains control over the decisions they make and as a result have a great degree of control over their mind. The second category of people is made up of leaders not of followers. Leading begins by taking initiative to find out what things are instead of what they appear to be (I Ching, hexagram 22). All great systems of self-development, including the Daoist, are based on the mind training and mind management approach of the second category of people.
The training is for developing leaders, what the I Ching calls “the superior person”, not followers. The person who follows relinquishes control of the most powerful instrument in the creation.
We are living in an era in which the capacity to manipulate information and control thoughts for commercial, political, and spiritual purposes, is at a peak in human history. Never before has so much power to control the mind been concentrated in the hands of so few. Those who control the information, control the thoughts, control the vocabulary used, control the opinions, control how the person views the world and controls the decisions made. The person relinquishing control of its mind loses control over its thoughts, feelings, emotions, experiences, and spiritual development
The Tao teachings have been in the West for more than 40 years and time has made abundantly clear that learning to work with energy, developing grounding, clearing emotions, or becoming a sexual superman, can all be accomplished with minimal mental training and with selfish tendencies remaining intact. Developing powers to manipulate energy has never been the ultimate purpose of the original Tao teachings. The opening of the three cauldrons is a process raising consciousness from the selfish level of the first cauldron to the altruistic state of the second cauldron and the realization of one’s true nature as pure awareness or Original Mind at the third cauldron. Some of the basic requirements for such process are:
-Experiencing the distinction between pure awareness and the mind.
-How the mind is structured into six fundamental functions.
-How the mind works under the influence of the three basic tendencies.
-How to clear negative paths and establish positive ones.
-How adaptability, attention, focus of the intention and wellbeing are all functions of mental clarity.
In this important class we learn the fundamental steps for learning how to use the mind properly. The training involves the difficult task of transforming unconscious habits of reacting by progressively increasing clarity, awareness and how to develop a mind that works in one’s favor instead of against us. The mind can be our worst enemy or greatest ally depending on how it is trained.
Why join this workshop
Following this program will give you a solid base for skillfully using the mind in these times of rapid change, breakdown of structures, social upheaval, and great confusion. The ultimate purpose of this year-long training is experiencing the true happiness which comes from accessing one’s true nature and in the process assisting others to develop the full potential of their minds
The structure of the program of Altruism
The mind training program is a year-long practice program divided into three workshops of eight to nine sessions each:
The first part consists of the basic principles of mind training:
– The distinction between pure awareness and the mind.
– Mental impressions as the foundation for character and personality.
– The six fundamental functions of the mind.
– The three basic tendencies conditioning the mind.
– Mental fluctuations and the creation of unconscious tendencies.
– How mental paths are created and how to transform negative ones into positive ones.
The second part consists of the different aspects of Gayatri mantra for mind purification and discernment of one´s true nature. In the vast repertoire of mantras, Gayatri stands supreme as the ultimate means for establish positive mental pathways and clearing the clouds of ignorance of one’s true nature.
The third part trains in how to use the intention by freeing the will, organizing priorities, and setting worthy goals. The efficiency using the intention depends on mental, emotional, and spiritual clarity combined with a harmonious lifestyle generated by the first and second stage of the mind training programng
The most effective is to follow all three programs, but it is possible to follow only one or two programs, that depends on how many time you have trained with Juan Li before.
